FAQS

How does the game work?

Scavengers is a free-to-play online action shooter where squads of three compete to survive and dominate in a hybrid of sandbox-style Player-Versus-Environment (PVE) and class-based Player-Vs-Player (PVP) combat. Players choose from a roster of Explorers, arm themselves with a combination of unique abilities and weapons, and conquer the challenges of a hostile wasteland.

How does the IN-GAME SHOP AND CURRENCY work?

Chips are the hard currency, and they can be purchased (later) or they can be earned in game.

How many quests are there?

Currently there are 12 challenges implemented, and we will be adding more over time.

Does the game support Cross-Platform features?

Scavengers supports Cross-play and Cross-progress across Steam and Epic.
Cross-play works by default without any further action on your part. To enable Cross-progress you need to link your Scavengers account. In order to do this, create an account at http://accounts.improbable.io/ and link it to your Epic/Steam accounts so that the game recognizes you and carries over your progress regardless on which platform you log into.

Please note that when you go through this process, the first platform you link will take precedence and the progress from that platform will apply across both platforms, so plan ahead to link the right account first!

Here's some helpful Instructions to Link Your Steam / Epic Accounts to Your Improbable Account:

Instructions on how to move progress from EPIC to STEAM

  1. Log into https://accounts.improbable.io/auth/account and connect your EPIC account first.

  2. Open SCAVENGERS in the EPIC GAMES STORE and log into the game; this cements your EPIC account as the primary focus.

  3. Then log into https://accounts.improbable.io/auth/account and connect your STEAM account.

Your progress is now shared across both, with your original EPIC progress as the primary account data.
