Train monkey companions and explore fantastical lands when The Escapists universe expands with a new desert island adventure.
Thursday, 10th September 2020 – Team17 is transporting players to a desert island fantasy when The Survivalists launches on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™ on 9th October. The solo and co-operative survival and crafting game, set within the acclaimed The Escapists universe, will also be coming soon to Apple devices – and exclusively for mobile – through Apple Arcade. Pre-orders are now open on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One; those who reserve their ticket to the procedurally-generated island paradise will receive cosmetic extras to enjoy either solo, or with up to three friends in local and online co-operative multiplayer.
As with Steam, those who pre-order The Survivalists on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One will receive the Monkey Business downloadable content pack, which provides players with additional accessories for their stranded characters (the exclusive Straw Hat, The Escapists Guard Hat, and Unicorn Hat) alongside six more hats for their monkey mates (Top Hat, Lumberjack Hat, Chef Hat, Crown, Hard Hat, and Pirate Hat).
- Play together and survive: Up to four players can join forces to explore the world of The Survivalists, helping each other out to stay alive
- Get crafty and be inventive: Various items great and small can be crafted, from weapons to tools and buildings to keep your crew sheltered
- Automate with monkeys: Enlist the help of monkeys for a number of tasks, including protecting your group and gathering resources
- Curiosity is rewarded: Players are encouraged to explore their surroundings, where they’ll encounter dangerous wildlife, mythical enemies, and tantalising secrets.
For those eager to sample island life, a demo is now available on Nintendo Switch, and PC players can also check out a Steam demo before experiencing the adventure-filled paradise in full.
