What's the goal of the game?
You can choose to become a killer if you want by following the darkness to an anomaly.
If you are a survivor your goal is to activate the light tower to clear the darkness. To do this by finding fuse boxes (shown on your compass) and activating them.
The ultimate goal is to be the last person standing at the end of the game by winning the 1 versus 1 showdown.
How do you activate fuse boxes?
Walk up to them and press the Interact key (default F) you will see a series of switches, and letters/numbers beneath.
Turn the red ones green by pressing the corresponding key on your keyboard. Press Enter or Interact to complete the generator.
Help! I got disconnected from the generator and it turned yellow?
If someone else activates a generator, it will need to cool down. Wait for the light to turn red again, before trying to reactivate it.
What are the glowing / highlighted objects around the map?
They are supplies. Collect them to unlock skins, items, and perks.

Take your phone out (right mouse button) and press "E". A more powerful light beam can be used by clicking your left mouse button while the light is on.
How do I text chat with my phone?
