About Savage Lands
In the past few years there were a plethora of survival games that implemented unique ideas, but most of them tend to focus on surviving on your own in a harsh and unpleasant environment. This is a one of a kind experience for anyone, you can rest assured of that, and this is why many games implement it. But with so many survival games not passing the Early Access stage, can Savage Lands be any different?
Savage Lands is a fun little game that provides you with a brutal, first person open world action, but the interesting thing about it is definitely the premise. Unlike other survival games that focus on realism, Savage Lands is more focused on the fantasy aspect, so in Savage Lands you can actually find dragons, unicorns and a variety of other unique creatures.
Aside from that though, the main idea remains the same. Pretty much, you need to try and stay alive in the harsh environment and collect the necessary resources in order to survive. The beginning in this game is very hard, as you will need to explore the region and face numerous beasts just to get to a good place where you can place your camp. And as if that wasn’t enough, Savage Lands focuses a lot on the way you look for resources, because it keeps some of the regions inaccessible.
This discourages exploration a little bit, but at the same time it also comes with a multitude of opportunities, as it allows you to be more calculated when you take your decisions. Being strategic is a good thing in survival games, because this is the only way you can stay alive.
The game world in Savage Lands is definitely unique and varied. At the same time, it’s important to know that the game world is huge and it has all the weather conditions you can find in real life, albeit a little modified to suit the fantasy settings.
Creating a shelter is the most exciting part of Savage Lands, as it takes a while to find the perfect location, but once there the battle isn’t over. The animals in the area will come for you, especially if you make noise, and this is where the item crafting mechanic comes into play. Savage Lands allows you to gather items and combine them in order to make armor, food, weapons and so on.
But Savage Lands doesn’t stop with singleplayer, instead it moves the fun in the multiplayer environment. Although the early access only offers just a small peak, once it comes out as a full release, Savage Lands will provide you with the ability to play in a cooperative and competitive manner with your friends as you explore these massive worlds in search for shelters and challenges!
Savage Lands is a good title and it definitely promises a lot. It’s a nice little game that will surely appeal to a variety of gamers, so we recommend you to check it out, it can be grabbed in the early access form on Steam.
