There are lots of survival games around, but if someone like Hervé Bonin, the co-founder of Dontnod who are known for their Life is Strange games, is involved, it becomes a bit more interesting. 200 years after geological disasters have struck the earth and left it behind as a wasteland, one has to survive everything that comes with the territory.
While this post-apocalyptic idea isn’t new (see the Game release: “Endzone – A World Apart” article), there’s much more storytelling this time around, as can be seen with 34 different endings that can be achieved (made easier by individual playthroughs of around 2 hours), depending on the paths one decides to take. Of course managing resources as well as one’s party of survivors is as much part of the experience as getting to know the various characters’ background stories and personalities.
The game is out now on PC with a 15% launch discount that lasts until April 22, 2021, at 3 PM UTC.
