Survival games are all the rage these days and it’s easy to overlook the many, many different attempts at the genre. One that we reckon will stand out a bit is Burning Arrow’s The Other 99 which has been announced for PS4. Burning Arrow has teamed up with publishing house Deck13 Games to bring The Other 99 to PS4 and other platforms.
There’s no release date for The Other 99 but it will be going through Early Access this July. Below is the announcement trailer and a few words from Burning Arrow and Deck13 Games taken from this morning’s press release:
Jan Klose (Managing Director, Deck13): “We’re very happy that our publishing branch, Deck13 Games, is taking off, and that we’ve earned the trust of the talented people at Burning Arrow. We’ll help them to reach a big audience with their unique and creative game.”
Thomas Brown (Co-owner, Burning Arrow): “We are very excited about our debut title, The Other 99, and are thankful to Deck13 for spotting its potential. We look forward to their continued support and can’t wait to bring out more information in the coming months.”
In The Other 99, players find themselves on an island with nothing but a note which reads, “the only way off the island is through the other 99.” Each enemy NPC is just as desperate to survive as you, and will stop at nothing to achieve their goal…. The game features brutal visceral combat, story driven exploration and stealth elements.
What do you reckon? Another dud waiting to flop, or does this one stink of potential? Give us a shout down in the comments section below.
