Grab your big coat because the temperature’s about to drop, courtesy of the latest survival title to hit the consoles, Impact Winter. Can you last a month in the freezing cold with limited supplies?
Impact Winter takes place after an asteroid collides with Earth, leaving the world as nothing more than a snow-covered wasteland. Most people have perished, but not you, Jacob Solomon, a survivor who’s wandering around the sub-zero wilderness. Stumbling upon a church, he meets four other survivors and their handy robot companion Ako-Light. With word that help is on the way, all you need to do is band together, scavenge, manage the supplies and stay alive for 30 days. Fortunately, Ako-Light gives the group a much needed boost, given that it makes it easier to drill for supplies, carry them and illuminate the dead of night.
Each playthrough is set to be unique as players search the hostile world for solutions to hold tight until you’re rescued. If you’d like to see for yourself and embrace the cold, Impact Winter is now available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Xbox gamers should go to the Microsoft Store to make their purchase at the price of £15.99.
