Late last year, Team 17 unveiled its next big title in The Escapists universe called The Survivalists. As the name implies, you and other players are trapped on abandoned island, and must scrounge together resources to survive. The beta is currently available now on Steam for a limited time and there’s also new gameplay trailer to check out below.
The Survivalists is all about building one’s base, crafting tools and equipment, and contending with the various threats on the island. As the new trailer showcases, you’ll also explore hidden dungeons and unearth treasures. And if things get to hairy back home, try training some monkeys to help you out.
With support for up to four players in co-op, The Survivalists looks like it offers some decent survival crafting fun. It’s currently scheduled to release for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch in 2020. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
