The Finals: free-to-play FPS with FULLY DESTRUCTIBLE environments

The Finals: free-to-play FPS with FULLY DESTRUCTIBLE environments
Feb 28, 2023

If you were a fan of previous Battlefield games where environmental destruction was at its peak... Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, and then Battlefield 4... you might be surprised that ex-developers of the studio that created the Battlefield franchise -- DICE -- left the developer a few years ago now to form Embark Studios. Embark has been hard at work on their new game "The Finals" which should most definitely be on your radar.

The Finals is an upcoming team-based multiplayer first-person shooter that takes place in a virtual game show, where your goal is to be the winner at all costs... with something quite special indeed: fully destructible environments. We're not talking about "Battlefield moments" with the "Levolution" in Battlefield 4 here, but full-blown, fully insane environmental destruction. Everything in The Finals can be destroyed, where if you try hard enough, you can pull an entire building down on the enemy teams 🏢 💥

The Finals Details (so far)

  • Made by ex-DICE developers (who created the Battlefield franchise) 💪
  • Fully destructible environments (and we really do mean EVERYTHING) 💪
  • PC + next-gen consoles only 💪
  • Amazing graphics + destruction physics (best ever?!) 💪
  • 3 vs 3 vs 3 vs 3 gameplay 💪
  • NOT a battle royal title 💪
  • Totally free-to-play 💪
  • Squid Game-style sci-fi bloodsport feel 💪
  • Late 2023 release at the earliest 💪

The main objective for gamers in The Finals is collecting coins and depositing them safely... which is going to be hard with 3 other teams hunting at the same time, looking for you and those coins... if you can deposit the coins into locations across the map, it seems that the person with the most coins wins. I guess that'll be if the enemy teams don't annihilate you by means of shooting you... throwing objects at you... or using the environment to end your life.

Embark hasn't been clear on the full details of the game, but we do know that you'll play in a 3-player squad against 3 other squads in a 12-player server (3 vs 3 vs 3 vs 3). 

Each build of character has different abilities, weapons, and gadgets... so your light build is most likely going to be wicked fast, while the heavy build is probably going to be your character that will handle destroying an entire building.

🔫 Cool weapons: The Finals will see you handling the Grapple weapon, which is a Foam-based weapon that is really quite interesting. Players can use the Foam in various different ways: using it as cover from enemy fire, to modify the environment and create new paths to play -- or block enemies -- as well as build vertically if you want to take the high ground against the other players.

The Finals Contestant Packs:

  • Light Build

  • Heavy Build

Let's go into more detail of The Finals' contestant packs, and what each build will deliver to the player:
