IGN is happy to reveal that The Survivalists - the desert island survival game set in the universe of The Escapists - has launched a limited-time beta on Steam. Announced as part of today's IGN Expo, the beta allows for online co-op for groups of four, who can explore, loot, craft and build together, while surviving the dangers of their island home. Also, you get to hang out with a ton of monkeys. Check out a beta reveal trailer below: [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/15/the-survivalists-summer-of-gaming-reveal-trailer"] The co-op survival sandbox game is due for release on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this year. There's much, much more to see from today's IGN Expo, and we're running the Summer of Gaming throughout June – here's the Summer of Gaming full schedule. All month, we're supporting some incredibly important causes – the World Health Organisation and The Bail Project – if you are able, help us support them too at donate.ign.com.
