The Culling Brings Battle Royale to Xbox June 2nd

Cumming, Georgia – May 25, 2017 — Xaviant announced today that The Culling will be made available for Xbox One on June 2nd in North America and Europe as part of the Xbox Game Preview program.

Sharpen your knives, load your weapons and get ready for the fight of your life because the most deadly game show in the universe is heading to Xbox! The Culling arrives exclusively on Xbox One June 2nd, bringing the battle royale genre to console for the first time.

“We are thrilled to bring battle royale to Xbox One with The Culling,” said Xaviant CEO and Founder Michael McMain. “Our team has put a tremendous amount of effort into controls, optimization, and balance to make sure the Xbox experience is top-notch. We couldn’t be more excited to use feedback from Game Preview players to take The Culling to the next level.”

In The Culling, 16 players have less than 25 minutes to trap, fight and kill the competition in the name of survival and glory. Earn your spot on the podium by outthinking, outsmarting, and out-dueling the competition in adrenaline-filled first-person combat.

The Culling helped to define the immensely popular battle royale genre and is the first game of its kind on Xbox One. In battle royale here are no redos, no start-overs and certainly no respawns. If you plan to be crowned champion, you’ll need to survive to the end. The tension is high, and the stakes are even higher. Do you have what it takes to win?
