Team17 has announced that it will be releasing its upcoming game, The Survivalists, on October 9th, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
To mark the occasion, Team17 has also put together a nice little trailer for the release date announcement, and what’s more is that there’s a free demo if you want to sample the survivor’s life before getting castaway at full price. However, the demo is only available on Nintendo Switch and PC.
Pre-orders are live, though not on PS4. If you want to pre-order the PS4 version, you can only pre-order the physical edition. If you’re on Xbox One, PC, or Nintendo Switch, you can pre-order the game to get the Monkey Business DLC pack for no extra cost. It’ll give you additional accessories for stranded characters as well as six extra hats for your primate pals to wear. Because who doesn’t want to make their monkey mates look cool, eh?
