"We started Embark to re-imagine how games are made and what they can become," creative director Gustav Tilleby writes in a press release. "The Finals is our first game to release, and a great embodiment of that vision. The Finals isn't another battle royale, military sim, or tactical FPS – there are plenty of those out there. It's an entirely new take on shooters."

Tilleby adds that it's been amazing and humbling to see the community's response to The Finals. The team says now that the game is live, it is laser-focused on ensuring a great experience for the community while delivering surprises along the way. 

The Finals is out right now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam.
