‘Apocalyptic sandbox MMO’ Fear the Night is Snail Games’ new zombie survival title


Remember back when zombies were all the rage? Now even H1Z1 has decided zombies are passe, but here we are with the launch of another zombie survival game this week: Snail Games’ Fear The Night, which has hit early access and aims to stay there about a year during development. The studio is calling it a “apocalyptic sandbox MMO” and “sandbox survival horror” game where you “team up with other survivors” to “work together to rebuild society from its ashes or choose to trust no one and go your own way in a lawless world.”

“Various systems are in place, such as combat and crafting. Players will be able to play online and use co-op, access different challenges during day and night periods, battling zombies and utilizing all types of available resources to craft items and gear to survive,” Snail says. “Currently the full release plans to include additional types of zombies, additional types of UA robots, weather/seasonal systems, as well as vehicles. Events based around hordes of zombies attacking certain locations during a full moon are also in the works.”

The game’s currently on sale for about 11 bucks on Steam, where reviews from the last week are currently “mixed.”
