As we mentioned earlier, Project EVO is set in a massive world known as Emberland. Players can traverse the vast open deserts, forests, snowfields, mountains, and ghost towns. You can choose to either build your base, team up with others, or explore the open world.

Laser Edge Studios have also implemented an incredible real-time weather system that will immerse players into the gaming experience.

In each of these hostile environments, players have to search for resources that will allow them to craft items, cook food, raid bases, and kill enemies. Embers are a powerful in-game item that players will need to collect if they want a big survival advantage.

Throughout the journey for survival, players will encounter other survivors and 'serendipities' that can either be their friend or foe. Avoid getting backstabbed and raided by teaming up with the right people to help you pull through all the hardships that the game will throw at you. Construct a base to create a common meeting point for your team. This can also double as a space to store all your resources.

Setting up a base in Project EVO is designed to be as simple as possible. Players can build a base from scratch on most terrains and have a say in every little detail of the design. But keep in mind that each terrain will grant different advantages and disadvantages regarding safety, expansion potential, and consumption costs.

Laser Edge Studios have also promised that Project EVO will be a completely free-to-play game that will never feature any pay-to-win mechanics. This game will truly portray a fair competition between players where skill will always be the deciding factor.
