400-Player Battle Royale Title ‘Mavericks: Proving Grounds’ Teaser Trailer Released (VIDEO)
What happens when you take the premise of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and quadruple the number of players playing at the same time on the same map? Well, you get Mavericks: Proving Grounds. In development by Automaton, the upcoming title is looking to build off the massively successful PUBG craze by creating its own battle royale experience, but with four times the player count of ‘loot sim 2017’. Check out the newly released teaser trailer for the game below:
Very little has been revealed about Mavericks: Proving Grounds, and the above teaser trailer continues to be par for the course. All its viewers are treated to are some beautiful graphics including brilliantly detailed foliage, god rays, and a lone silhouette of a player running through the forest. Towards the end of the trailer an ominous looking tower can be seen in the distance.
Mavericks: Proving Grounds is powered by SpatialOS by Improbable, which is said to make previously impossible games possible through the use of cloud computing to circumvent traditional client-server models. This will come in handy, as while the estimated maximum player count that Automaton is currently planning for upon the game’s launch date later this year is 400, the developer intends on having up to a thousand players together within the same world. If the new cloud-based gaming model proves to be successful, gamers could see a new advent of gaming titles that break the boundaries of current-gen consoles, and will pave the way for gaming platforms moving forward.
