Midnight Society has finally given us something tangible. A very early version of the game, co-created by Dr. DisRespect, has made its way into the hands of testers, and we must admit that it doesn't look too bad.
How does the game present itself?
Before I get to the gameplay itself, however, it is worth noting that the game has also changed its name. Until now referred to as Project Moon, it has been officially renamed to Deadrop. We don't have any new details about the game's final content, but we can already see how the gameplay looks like.
You can definitely see that the game is being developed on Unreal Engine 5. Details such as raindrops and lighting look really good even at this point. Players were also able to test basic features such as shooting and moving around the map.
The snapshot has been made available only to the so-called Variants. These are the people involved in the development process of Deadrop not only in terms of testing, but also in terms of decision-making (you could have become a Variant by buying an NFT token, currently no longer possible).
Requirements and snapshot schedule
It is worth noting here that new snapshots are to appear every six weeks, so we will be able to observe the development of the game on a regular basis. We also learned about what are the minimum requirements of the first test version of Deadrop.
- Operating system: Windows 10
- Processor: 4.2 GHz i7-7700k
- Graphics card: NVIDIA GTX 1080
- Memory: 32 GB RAM
- Storage media: 20 GB HDD
Mega influencers and industry veterans
As we know, Dr. DisRespect does not make Deadrop himself. He is assisted by veterans from the video game industry. Namely Robert Bowling (creative strategist of the Call of Duty series), Quinn DelHoyo (worked on Halo 5: Guardians and Gears of War) and Sumit Gupta (founder of BitRhymes, Bash Gaming, Boom.tv).
In addition Deadrop is also expected to involve "a number of mega influencers", although who exactly is being referred to - we don't know yet (via VGC). Nevertheless, the production co-created by Dr. DisRespect, so far promises to be quite good, despite one faux pas, which was the linking of the game with the widely criticized NFTs.
Therefore, there is nothing left to do but wait for more snapshots. They will give us a broader insight into whether "the most community-focused online PVP experience the world has ever seen" will indeed be such.
