Fallout 76 has had an awful reception, but really it’s just a matter of expectations and poor marketing.
Bursting at the seams with silly jokes, black humour, and outstanding graphics, Breathedge is a comedic science fiction game that’s worth a look while it makes its way through Early Access.
Boundless presents players with a huge voxel sandbox in a solar system full of planets to explore and colonise — very slowly, and with lots of bugs.
Outpost Zero is yet another Early Access survival-crafting game. It looks lovely, but unfortunately doesn’t (yet) play that well.
Memories of Mars already looks and sounds terrific, but it needs considerable work to attract and retain PVP and PVE players alike.
Dive naked into the Exiled Lands. Chop up your own dead body and eat it, then beat on your enemies with your own severed leg.
Take control of three friends as The Apocalypse begins. Fight demons and werewolves, recruit survivors to your cause, and grow vegetables to make salad!
One of the latest in a very long line of Early Access survival-crafting games, Escape the Pacific claims to be the most advanced and realistic of the lot. It’s not, or at least not yet, anyway.
Behind Harsh‘s simple and somewhat garish menu system is a survival-crafting ARPG that can look simply beautiful. It’s rough around the edges now, but it’s definitely one to watch.
