Developer Embark and publisher Nexon held two closed beta events, and more recently an open beta, for its free-to-play multiplayer destruction shooter The Finals. Tonight, as part of the 2023 Game Awards, Embark announced that The Finals has officially launched for the PC via Steam, and also on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

In a post on the game's Discord channel, Embark revealed how the plans for launching the game will work:


Welcome to Season 1 of THE FINALS, my friends!

We're rolling out on all platforms, and this will take a bit of time.

So you are aware, we’ve capped the number of players and will increase that cap hour by hour, ensuring the best experience.

Don’t worry, we won’t stop until everyone can enter the arena.

Thanks for being here with us. It means the world!

In case you are not familiar, The Finals is an FPS game set in a future world where players enter virtual arenas where they battle it out to a TV audience.

Here's some more info on the game:
