Outpost Games is running the SOS alpha from June 26 to July 2, so sign up for a chance to test out this new competitive survival game!
Ever hear the expression “it is not merely enough to succeed, one’s friends must also fail”? No? Well, that is what comes to mind every time I think or read about the up surge in survival games out there. Case in point is the incoming game from Outpost Games called SOS. And before we get into the specifics let me just say that the SOS alpha fires up on June 26 and you can sign up right now for a chance to participate!
Anyway, the concept of SOS: The Ultimate Escape is quite straightforward: one island, one helicopter with three seats, 30 minutes to survive, and 16 contestants. That is some pretty easy math to figure out! All of the contestants must find a relic on the island in order to claim a ride on the helicopter, but of course there are plenty of nasty monsters and backstabbing players out to make your life difficult. You can communicate with the other players by voice and work together to survive, but you know how it goes…it all goes to hell when there is only one seat left! Check out the pre-alpha video below to see the game in action.
If you would like to register for the SOS alpha, head over to the game’s website and sign up! Micah Seff from Outpost Games emailed me to say that this closed alpha event will run from 3-9pm PDT each day until July 2. It sounds like this SOS alpha test is quite a bit larger than the pre-alpha, so hopefully all of you get a chance to participate. Check it out!
