505 Games has today announced the availability of How to Survive, a third-person action adventure game that tests players’ ability to stay alive in a world where the outbreak of an unknown virus has turned most of the population into ravenous zombies. How to Survive is available on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox 360 and Windows PC via Steam.
In order to make it through the day and night, gamers must learn to fulfil their most basic needs such as seeking food, water and shelter, as well as finding an incredible variety of items to combine into dozens of handmade tools and weapons – scrap metal, tubes, bolts, fertilizer, tires, harpoons, and empty bottles are just some of the many items scattered about, but how you use them determines whether you wind up dead, alive or undead.
Developed by Eko Software, How to Survive puts players in the centre of the action as someone who, after an accident, finds themselves on an island amidst a small archipelago off the coast of Colombia. But there are other inhabitants, many who are undead. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by a brain-hungry horde of zombies to get the adrenaline flowing… What will you do? Who will you trust? How will you survive?
How to Survive is priced at $14.99 USD for Xbox 360 and PC. A PlayStation 3 version will be available later this autumn as will a Wii U, version via the PlayStation Network and Nintendo eShop respectively. The videogame has been rated PEGI 18 and Electronic Theatre will bring you an in-depth review of How to Survive later today.
