If you don’t want to play Helldivers 2, check out The Forever Winter, a cooperative shooter with a terrifying atmosphere.


Given that Steam has seen a lot of controversy with Helldivers 2, to the point of allowing indiscriminate refunds, you may be looking for an alternative. Except for the fact that it has yet to see the light of day, and there is no telling when it will, we present to you The Forever Winter as an alternative. This cooperative shooter does not introduce an atmosphere referencing any movie, nor does it have the same sense of humor, but it may be interesting to follow closely.

Fun Dog Studios wanted to offer the first trailer that includes gameplay of a cooperative tactical shooter that combines horror and survival, and that looks spectacular thanks to Unreal Engine 5. A game that enjoys a more than interesting aspect and that aims to be one of the outstanding proposals when it sees the light.

The Forever Winter is a cooperative shooter with an air of terror and survival that can be a title to take into account.

The Forever Winter is a very interesting proposal, where players will have to face each scenario to survive. A post-apocalyptic scenario full of large machines that would have conquered the place and players must survive and fight. It might seem the typical proposal, but it has wanted to delve into different aspects, prioritizing the survival and strategy, where players have the priority to survive .

To this end, the game has a system called Dynamic Encounter, through which enemies have their own objectives and agendas. It has been sought that all individuals who appear on the map have something to do, avoiding the feeling that the player is facing entities that walk around for no reason, just to make things difficult. But in addition, this system seems to be oriented to demand the best from the players who cooperate, because the enemies will be coordinated groups that can get to undertake large-scale battles.

With this, attending to the gameplay seemed a necessity. And although the gameplay shown is from an alpha that denotes the need to optimize performance, it allows us to get an idea of this proposal. Although it may be one of those montages that shows what it seeks to show, the proposal seems to be very interesting and intense. What we cannot get to know right now is what the context in which this experience is centered will be like. We have seen that this context can be managed very well to give life to multiplayer battles oriented to objectives that serve to condition future events.

For now, as far as the requirements for this game are concerned, as we see on the Steam product page, it is stated as a minimum requirement to have an i7-9700 or Ryzen 7 3700X with 16GB of RAM, accompanied by an RTX 2080 Super or a Radeon RX 5700XT. These are very high requirements for any game, which denotes that there is a lot of work to be done to make it more accessible. On the other hand, an i7-12700 or AMD Ryzen 7 5700X with 16GB of RAM and an RTX 3080Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6800XT is recommended for smooth gameplay.

Be that as it may, this title looks great and could be a game to keep an eye on. We will have to keep an eye on it, because after the recent events there may be many players eager for high quality cooperative experiences, like the ill-fated Helldivers 2.
