Pre-book a deserted island getaway with The Survivalists on Steam for exclusive content
Team17 is today announcing that Steam pre-orders are now open for the upcoming solo and co-operative survival and crafting game, The Survivalists. Players that pre-order The Survivalists ahead of its launch later this year will get access to the Monkey Business downloadable content.
On completion of the DLC’s bonus quest, players can accessorise their stranded humans with three exclusive hats (Straw Hat, The Escapists Guard Hat, and Unicorn Hat) and six additional hats for their monkeys (Top Hat, Lumberjack Hat, Chef Hat, Crown, Hard Hat, and Pirate Hat). Players who pre-order The Survivalists on Steam will also be granted access to an exclusive pre-launch beta taking place two weeks before release.
The Survivalists takes place in The Escapists universe and sees up to four players stranded on a procedurally generated island, where they’re tasked with rescuing, befriending, and training their island’s monkey population while exploring, crafting, and overcoming marauding orc groups in order to survive.
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 plundering resources
Curiosity is rewarded: Players are encouraged to explore their surroundings, where they’ll encounter dangerous wildlife, mythical enemies, and tantalising secrets.
Emma Bates, Producer, Team17 said:
“We’re excited for The Survivalists to launch later this year, and we wanted to give players a little something extra for preordering their copy ahead of time with the Monkey Business DLC. The game breaks new ground for The Escapists universe, with no island ever the same. The pre-order bonus of pre-launch access and bonus hats means those eager to get stranded in the world of The Survivalists will have even more individuality with their characters - and who wouldn’t want to see a monkey in a pirate hat?”
