The Scavengers free-to-play Battle Royale hybrid had a bit of a rough start in Early Access this week, due to issues with servers and Steam switches. The keys could only be claimed by watching streamers playing Twitch, and some viewers never got their keys. Also, Scavengers have already run out of Steam keys to distribute. There were, as is often the case with new games, some server downtime issues as well.
So there’s a little messy soft play, but server issues seem to be resolved, and better yet, players won’t have to watch Twitch streams or keep checking their inboxes for a key. Scavengers enter early entry correctly tomorrow, May 1, and will be accessible to everyone without needing a key to unlock it.
No Keys Needed – Tomorrow, May 1, 9 AM PDT / 5 PM GMT, Scavengers PC Early Access will be available to everyone. To celebrate, we will also be releasing a new trailer for the deep game, titled “What is Scavengers”. Share it with your friends as a quick primer!April 30, 2021
It’s a surprising change of plans – only yesterday the developers said they might “walk away from locked access” at some point, but now it appears they have committed to opening the doors. Starting this Saturday at 9 AM PDT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM GMT, scavengers will be available to all. Fingers crossed hold up the servers.
