Vriendschap is overrated. Waarom zou je vriendelijk doen tegen anderen, wanneer het verraden van je medemens zoveel leuker kan zijn? Uiteraard moedigen we hier geen zulk gedrag aan in het echte leven, maar het verraden van je vrienden is een thema dat de laatste jaren in verschillende games is opgedoken. Als je bijvoorbeeld nog nooit gehoord zou hebben van “Among Us”, dan heb je vast het voorbije jaar onder een steen geleefd. Among Us is misschien niet beschikbaar voor de PS4, maar “Project Winter” is dat binnenkort wel.

Project Winter is een multiplayer game waarbij acht spelers proberen te overleven in een besneeuwd landschap. Dit doen ze door middel van allerlei taken op te lossen om uiteindelijk te ontsnappen met een noodvoertuig. In die groep vrolijke vrienden zitten echter verraders, die er alles aan moeten doen om die ontsnapping tegen te gaan…

Project Winter verscheen vorig jaar al op pc en komt op 26 januari naar de Xbox One. De PS4 en Switch volgen dan later. Bekijk hieronder de laatste trailer en een korte beschrijving van de game.


Betray your friends in this eight-person multiplayer focused on social deception and survival.

Communication and teamwork is essential to the survivors’ ultimate goal of escape. Gather resources, repair structures, and brave the wilderness together. Just beware that there are traitors within the group working to sabotage your chances of getting out alive by any means necessary.


  • Survivor – As a survivor you will have to complete a series of objectives in order to call in one of several rescue vehicles and escape to win the game.
    • Repair all the objectives to restore the cabin radio to working order.
    • Break rocks, harvest berries and herbs, and cut down trees to earn crafting materials used to repair objectives, and help keep you alive.
    • Explore crates found in the buildings scattered throughout the map which contain items that will help you survive and complete your objectives.
    • Use the radio in the cabin to call in the emergency escape vehicle.
    • Board the escape vehicle and escape with as many innocent survivors as possible.
    • Use your keen senses to deduce who the traitors are, react to their attempts to sabotage your escape and exile anyone you find suspicious.
  • Traitor – As a traitor your goal is to stop the survivors from escaping without being identified or killed.
    • All of your teammates will be revealed to you at the start of the match and can be identified by a red traitor symbol, much like yours. You will start with a red radio to communicate with your fellow traitor.
    • Use traitor crates and hatches scattered throughout the map to gain advantage against survivors. Crates hold equipment and reward you with traitor points that can be used to perform special actions. Hatches let you quickly travel to different key locations across the map.
    • Spend traitor points on special abilities. Points can be used to activate your roll ability, as well as to sabotage objectives, bunker consoles, and other objects across the map.
    • Use traps, poison and many other tools in your toolkit to hinder or kill the survivors. Prevent them from escaping before time runs out in order to win!
    • Blend in with the survivors. Do not reveal yourself too early… they can always defend themselves.

Key Features

  • Teamwork – Survivors cannot escape unless they work together. Players who wander off on their own will have difficulty surviving the elements, can fall victim to hostile wildlife, or become easy targets for the traitors.
  • Communication – Communication is key if the survivors have any hope of escaping. There are several ways to communicate with other players: proximity-based voice chat, private voice chat radio channels, text chat, and emotes.
  • Betrayal and Deception – The traitors are outnumbered and weak when the game begins, they may infiltrate the survivors and earn their trust while they build up their strength. Survivors can never be 100 percent sure of who to trust. The traitors can take advantage of this by spreading lies, and pitting the survivors against each other.
  • Customization – Play the game how you want with multiple game modes including basic, normal and custom mode! Add some flair to your character with cosmetics that can be bought with our in-game currency earned after each match!
