LOS ANGELES – August 1, 2022 – Survival: Fountain of Youth, the single-player survival game set in the 16th-century Caribbean islands from developer Odinsoft, charts a course for a worldwide launch on Steam for Windows PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in Q1 2023. An updated demo debuts today in conjunction with the Steam Survival Fest, featuring new gameplay systems and full gamepad support.
Experience the dawn of the Age of Discovery as a member of Juan Ponce de Leon’s expedition crew on a search for the fabled Fountain of Youth. After surviving a shipwreck and waking on the shores of an uninhabited tropical island, search these strange new surroundings for the rest of de Leon’s crew, relying on wits and skill to outlast the elements.
Forage materials to craft items and stay alive. Make a campfire to ward off the cold and cook wild game to stave off the ever-present threat of hunger. Stay fed and hydrated to keep energy levels high, assemble makeshift shelters and clothing, and turn branches and stones into resource-gathering tools. Develop the skills to build hundreds of items — simple spears, metal armor, leather-drying stations, muskets capable of taking down all manner of dangerous wildlife — all in the name of survival.
Build sea-faring vessels and travel to different islands, transporting vital commodities to and from each location. Master five vessel types, including basic rafts, schooners, and catamarans, upgrading them for added durability and increased storage space to create a floating base. Fish off the side of boats, cook food for long journeys, and spend restful nights sleeping onboard. Marine exploration is vital to finding new locations, but be wary, because sudden storms and unpredictable currents can change the tide of any expedition.
Traverse over 20 islands, bright and vivid during the day and home to a variety of flora, fauna, and resources awaiting discovery. Map nearby surroundings to get a lay of the land and move towards points of interest to uncover traces of former shipmates and long-forgotten secrets left by an ancient civilization.
Survival: Fountain of Youth provides a deep single-player survival experience set against a historically inspired backdrop. Triumph over nature: ward off dangerous predators like wolves and sharks, take refuge from unpredictable weather, and more all while exploring a richly detailed collection of islands. Follow the main story threads or head into the open-world environment to carve creative new paths forward in the face of myriad challenges.
“Challenge is at the heart of Survival: Fountain of Youth because of its emphasis on scarce resources and the clever management of them,” said Stas Ignatov, Head of Publishing, Odinsoft. “Survival: Fountain of Youth aims to create an unparalleled experience in the survival genre by balancing that challenge with a beautiful, historically inspired setting when it arrives on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in Q1 2023.”
Survival: Fountain of Youth will arrive on Steam for Windows PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in Q1 2023 with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Brazilian Portuguese language support. An updated, free demo is available on Steam featuring new English, French, Chinese, German, and Russian-language support
