Developed by Embark Studios, known for their expertise honed on the Battlefield series, The Finals has been a free-to-play sensation on Steam, captivating players with its groundbreaking destruction technology.


What's New in Update 1.5?

  • Solo Bank It: The highlight of this update is the introduction of "Solo Bank It," the game's first limited-time mode. This experimental mode pits players against each other in a thrilling race to amass the most cash, offering a fresh twist to the gameplay.
  • Enhanced Gameplay: Alongside Solo Bank It, the update brings balance changes and bug fixes, ensuring a smoother, more refined gaming experience.
  • Expanded Store and New Outfits: Players can now enjoy a larger store with more options and new outfits, adding a layer of customization and personal expression.
