IGN is happy to reveal that The Survivalists – the desert island survival game set in the universe of The Escapists – has launched a limited-time beta on Steam.Announced as part of today’s IGN Expo, the beta allows for online co-op for groups of four, who can explore, loot, craft and build together, while surviving the dangers of their island home. Also, you get to hang out with a ton of monkeys.
There’s much, much more to see from today’s IGN Expo, and we’re running the Summer of Gaming throughout June – here’s the Summer of Gaming full schedule. All month, we’re supporting some incredibly important causes – the World Health Organisation and The Bail Project – if you are able, help us support them too at donate.ign.com.
