This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Thank you for playing, streaming, and watching Scavengers. Your enthusiasm has been overwhelming, and we’ve spent the few past days sharing our favorite Twitch streams as we got to work on stabilizing the servers.

Now, we’re excited to announce that tomorrow, Saturday, May 1st at 9AM PT / 5PM BST, Scavengers Early Access will be open to download for anyone - no keys needed.

If you’re a brand new Explorer, you don’t need to register to play. Just click “Play Now” on our homepage or at the top of this page. When the pop-up shows, asking you to select the platform, choose the option you want and then jump in!

To welcome new Explorers into the fold, we’re also releasing a brand new deep-dive gameplay trailer on “What is Scavengers.” Share it with your friends as a quick primer!

All of our previous communications still stand from when we announced the start of Early Access, but in case you missed it, we’ll re-post the important bits below this.

Stay safe and keep warm,

Midwinter Team


To welcome back our returning players and to jump-start all our new Explorers, we’re giving out some perks and bonuses:

Daily 200 Chips to claim. Don’t miss out, this is a limited-time special and the extra Chips can go a long way towards unlocking an Explorer or purchasing valuable items!

Weekend Explorers, save the date. From Saturday, May 1st - Sunday, May 2nd, we’re running a Double EXP Event. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a jump start on your progression!

The event will run from May 1st 12:00 PM PT / 08:00 PM BST - May 2nd, 12:00 PM PT / 08:00 PM BST.

There are more upcoming rewards to look out for. We’d like to show our appreciation particularly to players who have been with us from the very beginning and we’re aiming to recognize and reward those players in the future with in-game items.

More details on these future rewards to come and we’ll update you when we have news to share.


We will be resetting account progress during Early Access. Our goal is to do this only once to accommodate new features that we're still working on, and make sure the balance is as good as we can make it. We’ll let you know when that is coming before we do it.

We know this isn’t a great feeling when you’ve spent time and energy progressing. Therefore, to recognize this and to say thank you for everyone’s support, we’re planning to award in-game bonuses and rewards to everyone after that final progression wipe.

Again, we’ll be sharing more updates on this in the future, stay tuned.


With more players joining the field and our awesome community continuing to grow, we want to make sure that we provide the best game support for all our players.

If you encounter any technical issues while playing Scavengers, please submit a ticket to our Player Support team. Your question will get passed to the right member of the team to look into and we’ll reply as soon as we can.

You can also join our Discord server and talk to our Community team, as well as other Explorers to share your Scavengers experiences and see if they might have an answer to your question.

You can also help bug report and submit feedback about Scavengers on our Discord server too. Your feedback and suggestions are still as important as ever to us. We want to continue building Scavengers with you, so your thoughts and ideas will all go towards our ongoing game improvements and updates - keep sharing them with us!
