The game tells the story of eight people whose everyday lives are forever changed after a horrific plane crash. They now find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere, deep in the forests of Alaska. Welcome to a world without civilization, where you and the other survivors are at the mercy of nature — and wild animals starved by the cold!


While the survivors await rescue, their lives are threatened by a number of mysterious entities, unseen creatures and objects that definitely don’t belong in this world. And the deeper you go, the harder it gets to survive. Through the storyline you’ll desperately try to reach help on the radio, but no one’ll answer you. Something is wrong here. In here is no room for mistakes: if you went hunting but forgot to cut some wood for the fire before nightfall, you’re dead. If you didn’t have time to cook your meat, you might have to eat it raw — and if you don’t have medicine, you’ll surely die from food poisoning. To stay alive, you’ll need to scavenge and craft like a pro.

You can play The Wild Eight on your own, but the game fully opens up in co-op mode. Other players are your only backup — either by sharing resources or covering your back! Even if you were mauled by wolves and "you died" appears onscreen, your teammate can still resuscitate you with a defibrillator (which are very rare to find, by the way).

    Hi! I'm the part of devteam. Would love to answer any questions about The Wild Eight!

    Hi, it looks really interesting. I have a couple of questions:

    1. Is multiplayer online only or you have local multiplayer as well?
    2. Seeing that consoles are supported, I assume the game can be played with a controller. Are controllers going to be supported on PC as well?
    3. What happens if you don't have a defibrillator? I like to sit down to play with friends/family for hours. If everyone has to quit and restart the game because one of us is permanently dead it wouldn't be a pleasant game experience.

    Thanks for your questions!

    1. Both online and local (do not confuse local co-op with coach co-op – we are not sure about the last one).
    2. Controllers will be supported on PC as well.
    3. No details yet. We are testing different saving and checkpoints options now.
