Multiplayer Survival Game SOS Coming To Steam Early Access January 23
Outpost Games, a technology and games company made up of former Electronic Arts, YouTube and Twitch veterans, will launch its highly-anticipated multiplayer survival game, SOS, on Steam Early Access on January 23, 2018. SOS pits 16 contestants against each other in a 30-minute reality show-style challenge to escape a the dangerous tropical island of La Cuna. Players can purchase SOS through the game’s official Steam page for the low price $29.99 beginning on launch day.
In SOS, 16 players compete to retrieve a valuable relic from the ruins of a mysterious island in order to escape via helicopter. Survival is key, but winning isn’t as simple as outlasting the competition. In order to escape the island, contestants will need to use the power of both their voice and personality to build bonds with other contestants and navigate the dangerous terrain. Only three contestants can make it out on the helicopter and it’s up to each of the 16 to find their best route off the island. Scheming, strategizing and even backstabbing are commonplace and the contestants who do them most skillfully often have the best chance to escape.
SOS introduces Outpost Games’ Hero platform which empowers players to become performers. With Hero, every game has a live audience that gives real-time feedback and influences gameplay. By entertaining the crowd, players can climb the fame leaderboard and become the star of the show. Fans can watch the best matches and interact with their favorite performers at www.hero.tv .
