Open world survival game "Lifeless" comes to Early Access

Steam is full of open-world games these days, it seems we enjoy transversing around a vast open area and exploring the unknown.

I've recently stepped into Lifeless myself so keep an eye out for our feedback on the game but as I write this two days late, the game has already received an update, along with the patch notes for the next update.

London, UK, 16th June 2016 – Today, Green Man Gaming Publishing, the publishing arm of Green Man Gaming, and Swedish indie developer, Rigid-Soft have launched their new multiplayer survival game, Lifeless, onto Early Access. Lifeless is an open world survival game that focuses on strong co-operative play based on two factions that fight against zombies and other players in the world.

Lifeless originally started development in 2014 by Swedish startup developer, Rigid-Soft. Following early coverage of Lifeless in Alpha, the developers decided to up their game by switching to Unreal Engine 4. "We had a vision of detailed environments, brutal combat, and solid multiplayer for Lifeless, and we are very confident we are heading in the right direction by using Unreal Engine 4,” said Rigid-Soft CEO Kristoffer Blasiak. “By coming to Early Access, we can work with the community to deliver that experience."

"We've been working hard with the team at Rigid-Soft since late last year, and seen Lifeless go from strength to strength getting ready for Early Access," said Gary Rowe, EVP of Green Man Gaming Publishing. "The team are fully funded, and have a full roadmap of features they plan to deliver during Early Access."
