So far, yet another online battle royale has little fans.

Although Fear the Wolves may tempt with its harsh, post-apocalyptic atmosphere, changing weather conditions, day and night cycle and the need to battle not only with living opponets, but also with dangerous fauna, the title has not gained much popularity.
