Mavericks: Proving Grounds may be the latest in a trend of upcoming Battle Royale games that are attempting to seize the moment wherein PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players are looking for something more. Whether it be higher fidelity graphics or a higher player count, developer Automaton games is seeking to capitalize on the genre’s success with a project that is abundant in ambition. The game’s teaser trailer recently released.
You can find the forty-second teaser below.
While it does not include any gameplay and only the silhouette of a player running through a forest, the trailer does give a taste of what is to come in terms of the game’s graphical goal. Though there is only footage of a forest and a field, the use of god rays, detailed foliage, and the echoes of gunfire and explosions can help the viewer imagine just what the game could look like.
It is important to note, however, that until we see some in-game footage there’s no telling how this game will turn out.
Mavericks: Proving Grounds is set to release in late 2018 according to their website and is reaching for more than graphical goals as the developers are planning on including up to 400 players in a match. This could mean that players who are looking for a longer match time than PUBG, which recently got a balancing patch on Xbox One, and a shorter match than Fortnite could get their wish.
