At the E3 PC Gaming Show, developer Automaton Games debuted its first gameplay trailer for Mavericks: Proving Grounds. The game is an upcoming massively multiplayer tactical shooter. The trailer shows brand-new features and the unprecedented scale of its 400-player, next-gen battle royale experience.

Mavericks’ battle royale will also feature a 1000-player mode that offers a revolutionary multiplayer experience. Available shortly after launch, these 1000-player battles will feature five-player squads dropped into a continually shrinking section of the game’s 16x16km (100 square miles) map to compete to the last team standing. 200 to 400-player solo and squad games will be available as standard from Mavericks’ early access release later in the year.

This is made possible thanks to Improbable’s groundbreaking technology, SpatialOS. SpatialOS is a cloud-based platform for creating games that go beyond the design limitations of traditional server architectures, allowing developers to build massive, living, persistent worlds with player populations that were previously impossible.

Mavericks: Proving Grounds will release in two phases: the battle royale mode in Winter 2018, supplemented by a persistent open world in 2019.
