About The Culling
ARENA BATTLE ROYALE
Welcome to The Culling! 16 contestants will duke it out in cleverly crafted arenas. It’s a winner-takes-all showdown for glory and the entertainment of our home audience!

It’s a show, it’s a game, it’s a game show about violence!

AND THEN THERE WAS YOU
There can only be one winner, and just like your parents always said, that’s you!

Get dirty, play dirty, and get up close and personal as you trap, shoot, explode and take on your enemies face to face in combat that’s more personal than your mama jokes.

PERSONAL AIRDROP
Select your Airdrop and plan your attack before your boots even hit the ground. When the time is right, open up your arsenal and unload a world of hurt upon your opponents. Defense, offense, nonsense, the choice is yours!

ENVIRONMENT HAZARDS
Don’t like the way the tables have tilted? Tilt them right back in your favor. From toxic gas to falling bridges and traps, there are plenty of creative ways to use your surroundings to your advantage.

WEAPONS, TRAPS, STIMS OH MY!
Dice em, slice em, pick em and prod em. From the mighty pitchfork to the lowly rifle — we got it all. In The Culling, melee is king, and a few non-FDA-approved stimulants to enhance your combat effectiveness never hurt. Run faster, get stronger and become thicker…skinned to even the odds.

PERKS
We’re all special little butterflies and contestants are no different. Tailor your combat experience by mixing and matching Perks in the main menu to become the best you that you can be!

PROGRESSION
There may only be one winner, but in The Culling, nobody goes home a loser! Gain levels and unlock new customization options, including weapon skins, clothing, and taunts to show other contestants who’s boss.

PLAYER’S CHOICE
Winning is the goal, but how you do so is up to you. Contestants can play alone or with a friend as they take on multiple arenas and modes in search of a place on the podium.

Got a plan? Want to test a strategy? Check out the tutorial and the practice range where you can hone your skills and embrace the homicidal lunatic your family always suspected you might be!

MULTIPLE ARENAS
The show’s producers have custom-tailored each of the arenas for maximum bloodshed and entertainment value. Outfitted with the latest motion sensitive cameras, hosts CHAS and CHASTITY keep contestants up to date with the latest gruesome events.

Arenas are also outfitted with a “perfectly safe”green poison gas that creeps in to keep the action flowing, just like the adrenaline in your veins!

SURVIVAL ISLAND
The island that started it all, featuring lush trees, tranquil water, warm sunshine, and abandoned buildings. Enjoy all of the above as you hunt down your foes, using the tropical terrain to your advantage.

Complete with unique match events such as Shake & Bake and Drop Your Bridges, this may be the gold standard of arenas.

CUL COUNTY CORRECTIONAL
Have you ever wanted to simulate a prison break? If so, you’re in luck. Under the shadow of night, you’ll find out why they’re called inmates in this intimate new battleground. Loot wards, lock down cells and make prisoners pay for their sins as you become the head honcho on the block.

LIVE THE SHOW
And where would a game show be without the games? Match Events keep contestants on their toes and are fun for the whole family. Shoot down free air drops in Loot Pinata, asphyxiate the competition with The Chokening or try your hand at an explosive game of Three Crate Monty!

These are just a few of the exciting events that The Culling has in store for you, Contestant!
