SOS by Outpost Games is a survival multiplayer game that sees players featured on a TV reality show, trapped on an island. The only way off La Cuna Island is to find a relic and escape without dying to other players or hordes of monsters.
If you are into the last man standing, island survival craze you might happen to like SOS. The game sees 16 players dropped onto a reality TV show island and must escape alive with a relic:
“SOS is an interactive game show where 16 entertaining performers are dropped onto La Cuna Island with one simple goal – get off La Cuna Island. Players must find a relic, signal for extraction, and grab a spot on the rescue chopper while out-thinking opponents and fending off monster hordes.”
According to the devs, setting up alliances, stabbing strangers or friendlies in the back, winning the affection of viewers and becoming the ultimate star is said to increase your chances of survival on La Cuna island.
It’s worth mentioning that SOS is slated for a Steam Early Access release, meaning that the game will hold bugs and other problems throughout. However you can be the judge and see if this game is something worth playing via a closed beta trailer.
The last news before the announcement of an Early Access release date was that of a closed beta test. The game has gone through a lot of changes in the past and even during closed beta, which means more changes are likely to come when Early Access drops a week and a few days from now.
I’m not sure if SOS will attract the same crowd as another multiplayer last man standing game that’s popular right now, but if you want to keep up with this game you can head on over to its Steam page or over to sosgame.com.
