How to download and play Scavengers
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.
- You can download Scavengers from the Steam Store page here. Click on the green Play Game button to add it to your library.
- You can download Scavengers from the Epic Games Store page here. Click the blue Get button to add it to your account.
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.
