Description

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. In The Wild Eight always keeping on the move is your only way to survive and find out what happened with this mysterious place. It doesn't pretend to be a realistic survival sim, but very challenging and fun game designed for both, a teamwork multiplayer and an immersive singleplayer experience.

Features

  • Uncover the mystery behind the plane crash by following the 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 unique loot and something out of this world!
  • Join with other players online to take on the toughest of all the challenges.
  • Brave new horizons 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!
  • 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.
  • Flee from the ferocious beasts or turn the tables and let them taste your fear. However, there are things lurking in the wild that are even more dangerous than wild animals and blizzards.
