Dr Disrespect has officially revealed details on Midnight Society’s upcoming game ‘Project Moon.’ Here’s everything we know about the Two-Time’s latest venture.

Regular viewers of Doc’s streams know making his own game is an idea the streamer’s had for a while now. After revealing some details about the “vertical battle royale” he hopes to build back in 2021, in 2022 his new studio is well on its way to making the game a reality.

On March 15 Doc revealed the game would be known as ‘Project Moon” and shared details about the Founders Pass, how it will incorporate NFTs, and more screenshots.

Project Moon’s Founder’s Pass features NFTs, but they won’t give owners an unfair advantage.

The big news during Doc’s March 15 stream was the streamer giving us the first look at what his dev studio Midnight Society has been working on the past few months.

While making the big reveal, Doc defended the game’s use of NFTs in the Founder’s Pass, giving members of the Champions Club a sneak peek at what Project Moon has in store.

He kicked the stream off by addressing NFT concerns directly, clarifying that they wouldn’t be a “pay-to-win” feature at all.

“Listen, in regards to NFTs you don’t have to have NFTs to play the game,” the Two-Time said. “It doesn’t change your experience of the game once it releases and it will continue to be free-to-play. You can’t buy your way to win.”

Instead, the NFTs he discussed are limited to cosmetics only, such as profile pictures for players who get accepted to the Founder’s Pass after applying first.

Dr Disrespect’s battle royale will have players battling upwards through a skyscraper.

At its core, we know for certain that Project Moon is a competitive FPS title. Beyond that, however, details remain scarce.

Doc has said in the past that Project Moon all revolves around a fire that starts at the bottom of a building.

Instead of venturing around the map horizontally like in most battle royale games, each new area is stacked on top of one another.

The building is set alight as players rush to escape the rising flames.

As players fight one another, they also have to fight the ever-rising flames as they try to ascend and escape using various exit points.

The concept art we’ve seen so far depicts three sectors within a massive building, including a machine room and a balcony atop some clouds.

Could this be the final sector players have to reach in order to escape with the win?

More art was revealed during the Day Zero event, and it definitely looks like the expanded team at Midnight Society has taken Doc’s original idea of a vertical Battle Royale and run with it.

When is Dr Disrespect’s Project Moon coming out?

Currently, there’s no telling how far off Project Moon might be. That being said though, Founders Pass owners appear to be getting their first look at the game in action very soon.

Two events have been announced, one in New York, one in Los Angeles, with both offering an exclusive “sneak peek at [the] genre-changing game.”

Given only Founders Pass owners are seemingly allowed inside, don’t expect any footage to leak from these exclusive events. Though with the first trailers almost locked in, there’s a good chance we see them online shortly after the IRL meetups.

As for when the game itself will be playable, it’s anyone’s guess. Though Doc himself said during the March 15 Day Zero stream that Midnight Society wasn’t going to “take years” to come out with Project Moon. So we could be seeing it launch sooner than later.
