Survival: Fountain of Youth, the single-player survival game set in the 16th-century Caribbean islands from developer Odinsoft and publisher Twin Sails Interactive, makes landfall for an Early Access launch on Steam for Windows PC today. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions will dock at port alongside the full 1.0 launch.

What started as Juan Ponce de Leon’s legendary 16th-century expedition for the Fountain of Youth leads to waking up disoriented on an unfamiliar island after a terrible storm. Shipwrecked and stranded with limited resources, get to work securing shelter, scavenging food and water, and staying healthy as diseases and predators loom.

Create a base of operations to store materials and craft tools before adventuring outward. Search for points of interest and clues relating to both the missing crewmembers and the mysterious civilization that once called these islands home. Could the Fountain of Youth lie here somewhere?

Traverse two expansive regions in the Early Access version of Survival: Fountain of Youth, with plans for two major content updates adding new regions and islands during Early Access, and a fifth region arriving at the 1.0 and console launch.

Scour for materials to assemble an arsenal of weapons and tools from simple spears to gunpowder muskets, transform basic lean-tos into cozy cabins, and develop skills to spend survival points that unlock valuable perks. Surviving and escaping the islands requires careful planning and preparation, with wild animals and tropical storms throwing a spanner in the works.

Set sail on a range of sea-faring ships to explore new islands and locations. Start with a primitive raft before upgrading to capable Spanish vessels that cut through waves. Use ships as a floating base or set up camps on different islands to facilitate longer exploration missions to uncover secrets and clues related to the story experience. Survival: Fountain of Youth encourages both player-defined adventuring and story-driven questing, allowing everyone to play at their own pace.

The teams at Odinsoft and Twin Sails Interactive are huge fans of the survival genre and the specific setting and story of Survival: Fountain of Youth. In understanding the complexity of choices and interactions they aim to offer players, both teams are eager to launch the game in Early Access to fine-tune the experience and improve the game based on player feedback. Today’s launch represents the beginning of a journey. Content and features will be added regularly, and bugs will be resolved as they are discovered. Working together with the playerbase and community, Odinsoft and Twin Sails Interactive look forward to receiving precious feedback during Early Access and will implement ideas and concepts introduced by conversations with the community.

“Survival: Fountain of Youth blends a historical setting with open-ended survival mechanics to create a challenging and rewarding experience for those that love exploration,” said Stas Ignatov, Head of Publishing, Odinsoft. “Entering Early Access is an adventure unto itself, and we look forward to embarking on this journey with players today on Steam!”

Survival: Fountain of Youth will is now available on Steam Early Access for Windows PC for $22.99/22.99€ with a 10% launch discount from April 19-26. Survival: Fountain of Youth features English, French, German, Russian, and Simplified Chinese-language support.
