Team17 has announced The Survivalists will be available on October 9th. The solo and co-operative survival and crafting game is set within The Escapists universe.
The Survivalists takes place on a procedurally-generated desert island where up to four players can join forces to explore the world and help each other out to stay alive. Players will be able to craft weapons, tools, and build buildings to keep your crew sheltered. They will also be able to enlist the help of monkeys for a number of tasks such as protecting your group and gathering resources.
Those who pre-order the game will receive the Monkey Business downloadable content pack, which brings additional accessories for their 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).
