It’s been nearly a year since Dr. Disrespect announced he would lead his own “AAA” game studio, Midnight Society, to develop a high-end battle royale, initially titled Project Moon. Finally, the time has arrived, as Midnight Society has revealed official gameplay footage and a snapshot of Project Moon, now called DEADROP.
On 29th July 2022, Midnight Society held an in-person live event in Los Angeles to showcase DEADROP and its gameplay. After publicly revealing the game's hefty PC system requirements, Midnight Society's unveiling of DEADROP seems to make the uproaring spec necessities understandable after witnessing official gameplay.
Midnight Society Reveals DEADROP Gameplay
Midnight Society’s newest game DEADROP is the first-ever vertical extraction shooter anywhere, with a post-apocalyptic-esque environment set in the year 2020, forty years after the “Climate Wars.” DEADROP’s snapshot and gameplay demo featured a smaller scope into the game’s entirety but focused on the fundamentals.

Founder’s Pass holders got to play the game as soon as it dropped, either live via Midnight Society’s in-person live event or at home by downloading the game online. DEADROP’s demo featured a taste of the game’s weapon system, including how the guns looked, felt, and everything in-between.
It also featured a look into DEADROP’s scenic environment, which looked pretty run down, polluted, and wet considering it rained for most of the demo.
The gameplay debut came right after Midnight Society revealed DEADROP’s gameplay demo minimum requirements on Twitter; you can see the crazy specs that Founder’s Pass holders need to run the gameplay below.
Operating System: Windows 10
Processor: 4.2 GHz i7-7700k

At the time of writing, Midnight Society hasn’t revealed much about DEADROP besides the title and general feel of the game to fans and Founder’s Pass holders. However, the game studio has been relatively transparent about what fans can expect with its 2022 road map.
Following DEADROP’s debut, Midnight Society will reveal more playable snapshot builds of the game every six weeks. For Founder’s Pass holders, keep an eye out for more information on Midnight Society’s official website.
