Hurtworld was released in Steam Early Access on December 4, 2015, by Bankroll Studios.
Hurtworld received a major overhaul known as Hurtworld V2, which was released on January 12, 2019. The original Hurtworld was then called Hurtworld Legacy.
Hurtworld is a hardcore multiplayer survival FPS with a focus on deep survival progression that doesn't become trivial once you establish some basic needs. That feeling when you're freezing to death trying to make a fire, or you're defenceless being chased by Creatures. These experiences are what make a survival game. When you overcome that challenge and find a level of comfort it's a great feeling, but what do you do next? Hurtworld tempts you out of your comfort zone with rich Resources, better Loot and higher Tech. It will also throw more dangerous creatures, harsher Environments and new challenges at you that can't be taken on without the proper Gear or refined skill. Will you settle for Bows and Arrows and a Campfire, or push deeper into the map and start scavenging for Vehicle Parts and better Weapons?
Built from the ground up with solid multiplayer foundations. Designed for fast skill based PVP and PVE. You will constantly have to decide which is the biggest threat, the player opposite you or the creatures that will hear your gunshot. Battle Hunger, Cold, Heat, and the dangerous environment around you. Tame your surroundings, Build a base, explore your world. But the biggest threat out there is other players. Create alliances, and destroy your enemies. Targeted towards hardcore gamers, Hurtworld aims to punish.
