Today, developer Fntastic (previously known as Eight Points) released a new trailer for its plot-driven survival game The Wild Eight, which is set to release on PC via Steam Early Access on February 8th, and on the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.
The new trailer — which is essentially an overview trailer — comes on the back of the release date announcement last week, where developer Fntastic revealed the game would be taking the Early Access route before launching fully later this year.
In case this is your first time hearing about The Wild Eight, here’s an overview, courtesy of the game’s Steam page:
The plane crash was only the beginning. Eight survivors are stranded in the middle of an unforgiving Alaska. Don’t let it consume you. Survive and live to tell the tale of The Wild Eight.
Uncover the mystery behind the plane crash by following the immersive quest lines and find all the anomalies that lie hidden in this snowy region. Follow the side quests to abandoned buildings, strange laboratories, facilities for mysterious purposes and something out of this world!
Join with other players online to experience a memorable stay in Alaska by taking on the toughest of all the challenges.
Brave new horizons and explore uncharted regions of Alaska in this beautiful, yet deadly random generated low-poly world. Warm your body around the campfire at night. Take shelter from blizzards and share the food with other survivors.
CRAFT & IMPROVE
Gather whatever you can to create the tools that will ensure your survival – weapons, clothing and gathering tools. Upgrade survival skills in your shelter to tailor the gameplay to your needs.
HUNT OR BE HUNTED
Gather food for energy and flee from the ferocious beasts or turn the tables and let them taste your fear. However, there’re things lurking in the wild that are even more dangerous than wild animals and the cold.
Upon launch into Early Access, The Wild Eight will cost $19.99 USD. Below, you can check out the new trailer:
