    Battle royale title The Culling, now known as The Culling: Origins, went free-to-play on PC today, developer Xaviant announced in a Steam post.

    The game originally launched in Steam Early Access in March 2016 with a full release in October 2017. Further development on the title was halted in December 2017 for the studio to work on a new project, which became The Culling 2. The sequel launched last July to an immediately low playerbase, causing Xaviant to pull the game from digital storefronts and revive The Culling from its original day one launch, though the revived version also suffered from a low player count.

    “After some real, serious soul-searching, we realized that there was no clear path forward unless we went back to right some wrongs in our past,” the developer wrote. “The Culling is the game that put us on the map and presented us with some amazing opportunities. But you, the community, are the people who made that opportunity real. Somehow we lost sight of that, and we lost our way when we let you down.”
