The Survivalists is an upcoming adventure game created by Team17 that can be played with up to 4 players online. Set on an island in the Escapists universe, you’ll get to explore, build, craft, hunt, and survive! But what really caught my attention, were all of the monkeys! Moreover, let’s face it, the monkeys are the main reason why this game is on my Most Anticipated Games of 2020 list.
Monkeys play a large roll in The Survivalists as they can be tamed and trained to help you with everyday tasks or back you up on raids. Thanks to a new trailer released today (February 19th, 2020), we get to take a closer look at some of the skills these monkeys have which includes: Warrior, Archer, Craftsman and Landscaper.
From the video above, it looks like the Warrior and Archer skills can help you with hunting and fighting enemies. The Craftsman helps with building your home, whereas the Landscaper gathers the necessary materials to do so. The Survivalists will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Furthermore, you can Wishlist the game on Steam here.
