The Wild Eight: Beyond The Door Update Arrives Tomorrow; Launch Trailer Released
Back in February, plot-driven co-op survival game The Wild Eight from developer Fntastic (previously known as Eight Points) launched on PC via Steam Early Access. Today, Fntastic announced that a substantial update, titled Beyond the Door, is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.
The update was originally supposed to launch on March 31st, but was delayed a week, with the developer citing it needed more time for to polish. The update is said to bring with it new adventures, and further develop the story of the game, as well as introduce new gameplay mechanics.
The following overview of the update is provided:
Bundle up with your best friends or total strangers to uncover more secrets of Vapor-3. There is a huge facility waiting amidst the frozen landscape that can become your own personal bunker with a working railway system. This may protect you from the furious beast that got unleashed on the world of The Wild Eight and will help you track him down later. We strongly advise survivors to unlock new skills and scavenge for new items before attempting to go on a big hunt.
But don’t mistake the doors, one leads to safe place and another to something completely unexpected. This is one of the biggest quests in the game right now that will shed some light on the events happening in the game.
“Beyond the door lies what you have craved before.
One leads to battle you may not win alone.
The second leads to safety from wolves and cold.
The last one tells the story of ones behind it all.”
The Wild Eight, which is still in Steam Early Access, is available for $19.99 USD. A full-release is expected sometime later this year. Additionally, the game is also coming to PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.
