BANDAI NAMCO Studios and Phoenixx Reveal Survival Quiz City Limited-Time Playtest

TOKYO – April 28, 2021 – Survival Quiz City, the multiplayer survival quiz action game from developer BANDAI NAMCO Studios and publisher Phoenixx, invites contestants to answer questions correctly or suffer the consequences in a pair of four-hour open playtest sessions on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8 on Steam.
In an alternate-future metropolis, the biggest game show is Survival Quiz City, where the inhabitants use their mind and body to compete for fame and fortune. Each round starts with a multiple-choice question. Be smart, but be quick: only so many people can answer correctly! Those who guess wrong or aren’t fast enough get dropped to an obstacle course while the winners shoot and bomb the losers, who must sprint and climb to the goal.

Competitors running the obstacle course try to collect coins while avoiding the onslaught from the winners, who earn coins for each hit on the losers. Make it to the end of the obstacle course to keep any winnings, then spend that collected cash in an interactive intermission on items that can increase speed, boost climbing stamina, and increase the winners’ firepower. This between-round lobby also has extra coins to collect, with more valuable currency in harder-to-reach spots.
Up to 30 contestants can participate in online multiplayer matches in the two game modes. In Survival Mode, choose the right answers and make it to the end of each round, trying to be the last contender standing. Bounty Hunter mode lets everyone compete with no eliminations, but earning coins becomes the focus, as the richest player at the end of four rounds is the winner!
The limited-time playtest, designed to help test servers ahead of release later this year, features two sessions: one on Friday, May 7 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. PDT, and another Saturday, May 8 from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. PDT / 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. BST / 11 a.m. to 3 p.m CEST.
“We’re ready for the world to get a taste of Survival Quiz City, and look forward to letting people try out the most intense quiz show ever,” said Yusuke Shigeta, Survival Quiz City Director at BANDAI NAMCO Studios. “Please share your feedback with us on Steam as we continue our work on the game!”
Survival Quiz City will be available on Steam Windows PC later this year, and the playtest will have support for English and Japanese text.
