It looks like the recent open beta for The Finals went very well: The free-to-play first-person shooter made by Embark Studios and published Nexon is now out on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.

You can watch the launch trailer for the game, premiered at The Game Awards 2023, below:

The Finals features destructible terrain – it is made by former Battlefield developers, after all – that completely changes how players approach battles and enables users to customize their characters very freely. It makes a huge difference to the gameplay if players choose a heavily built avatar or a lighter one, giving them different amounts of HP, mobility, and even separate equipment pools. There is a lot of room for experimentation.

In The Finals, players are divided into small teams that compete for a limited amount of vaults on the map. Groups need to break into them, loot them, and then transport their ill-gotten gains to a specific zone. They can be attacked by other players at any time in the process, who can simply steal their loot and net the points for it themselves, if they manage to reach the target area.

This leads to chaotic encounters between the parties and intense strategic posturing, since the right decision to wait or attack at the correct moment can make the difference between victory and defeat.

Crossplay between platforms is available for The Finals. You can find it on Steam via the link.
