At the time of writing, Scavengers is only available on PC. While the developers definitley intend for it to come to consoles in future, you’ll need a PC to play it today. Got one? Good, here comes the only major choice.

You can download and play Scavengers on PC through both Steam and the Epic Games Store. There’s no difference whatsoever between the two versions, so we’d recommend using whatever platform you launch games from more commonly. In either case, you’ll need to have an account registered with the service.

If your friends downloaded it on the other launcher, that’s not a problem as Scavengers has crossplay support between the two. However, sharing a platform could make finding and adding one another to games much more straightforward.

Once you have the game installed, all that’s left is to launch it from your game library and enjoy! Now that you know how to download and play Scavengers, you can read our breakdown of the game’s basics to know what you’re doing before you start. We’ll have more Scavengers content on the way soon, so check our hub page for the game to learn more.
