This title is a free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Embark Studios and Nexon, featuring teams competing in various modes for loot and glory. Players enter the arena as contestants prepared for intense battles against other squads.


The title boasts a fully destructible environment, providing numerous strategic options. Its main theme is destruction, similar to what players saw in Battlefield. It allows players to level almost every map by blowing holes in walls and rooftops for dynamic strategy. The gameplay also includes fast-paced movement and distinct character classes.

The game distinguishes itself from the battle royale genre, lacking a shrinking play area or typical consequences for elimination, except for a brief respawn timer. Matches last no more than 15 minutes, offering a nostalgic nod to mid-2000s deathmatch modes with modern, vibrant aesthetics.

The title's official release date was December 7, 2023, as revealed during The Game Awards, where the director announced Season 1's availability.

Aside from PS5, you can now play The Finals on PC and Xbox X/S. Head to this article for more game-related guides.
