Hot off the heels of a successful beta last month, Outpost Games
has released its streaming-centric survival sim in Early Access on Steam today.
SOS tasks 16 players with finding an ancient relic on a
monster-ridden island, and then escaping via a rescue helicopter. Teaming up
with other players is imperative if you want to survive the island’s deadly
beasts, but with only three seats available in the rescue chopper, you’ll need
to choose your friends wildly.
Outpost Games is developing SOS to be as fun to watch as it
is to play, and is incorporating its own Hero streaming feature to maximize
interactions between game participants and the audience. Outpost Games is hoping
to channel the alliances and backstabbing of the gameshow Survivor, putting the personalities of streamers front and center, which is certainly evident in the game’s new trailer.
