Among many, here are 5 reasons why you should buy the Survival Bundle.
An exciting trio of new-to-bundle Steam games appear in the Survival Bundle - bolstering your library with open-world survival and multiplayer chaotic shooters.
One of the new-to-bundle games is Band of Defenders. In this action-packed FPS, gamers can do everything from craft weapons, build barricades and unlock new gear and items in order to kill invading brutal savages and mutants hellbent on destroying the remaining members of human civilization.
If you're feeling tough, go it alone or team up with friends in Endless Mode and protect yourself against wave after wave of tough enemies!
One for the co-op and online players
Single-player is fine and all, but we love hanging with our friends and fellow players in online games. With the Survival Bundle, you'll have four online multiplayer and co-op Steam games to choose from - including Savage Lands.
In this fantasy world set on a mysterious arctic island, players must build shelter and craft weapons capable of withstanding battles with hostile threats and towering monsters. The action-adventure RPG also includes an intuitive build system and character customization, allowing you and fellow survivors to create your own unique playthrough in both single-player and online together.
Inspiring movies and narratives re-imagined
The fantastic minds behind hit movies and books have been recreated within the Survival Bundle by some pretty talented Indie developers. Inspired by John Carpenter's 1980s horror film 'The Thing', Distrust sees players explore an arctic base that is stuck in a nightmarish scenario, where the characters are attacked by an alien creature if they fall asleep.
Explore randomly generated levels and fight the unfathomable as hallucinations and strange anomalies throw you off the scent of what is and isn't reality.
This bundle also features open-world survival Valnir Rok Survival RPG, which includes quests written by the bestselling author Giles Kristian (Sons of Thunder). This vast Nordic adventure allows players to raid other clans, place bounties and build settlements in order to survive.
The creative mind of a AAA developer
Having the experience of working on a highly-rated AAA game is always a bonus for a developer, taking the skills that they've learnt and producing their own projects. Fortunately, one game featured in the Survival Bundle has just that!
Psychological horror survival This Strange Realm Of Mine was created by Doomster Entertainment - spearheaded by developer Wildemar Daniel Doomgriever, who worked on Atari's sci-fi FPS The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.
Assault on Dark Athena scored 80 overall on Metacritic and was praised for its 'Pitch Black' mode and great voice acting. Doomgriever went on to develop his own independent titles, including the 'Very Positive' Steam rated This Strange Realm Of Mine - which gives off a 'Minecraft meets DOOM' vibe.
Pixel-style and modern graphics combined
The Survival Bundle has a fantastic blend across different aspects of game designs, ranging from retro 8-bit style to modern day 3D graphics.
2.5D cinematic platformer Deadlight takes place in the 1980s in the aftermath of a catastrophic event that has decimated life on earth. Players must venture across a beautiful but deadly world where walking corpses and brutal gangs will do anything to survive.
For a more retro gaming experience, adventure strategy March of the Living sees players manage a group of up to six survivors through zombie-infested cities in search of resources in a procedurally generated world.
