Happy new year everyone! 2018 as come upon us. Donald Trump is still president :( But, we have good news. Exciting new survival sandbox games that will (HOPEFULLY) be comiing to a console or PC near you sometime this year.. (2018) heres 6 survival sandbox games that i happened upon in my research. Hope you enjoy :)

Little Devil Inside

Check them out on Kickstarter!: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ldi/little-devil-inside

Little devil plans to release across all platforms sometime in 2018 Like any good survival game, the concept is pretty simple... Explore, discover, adapt, fight and survive
This game looks visually very exciting to me to explore. The world looks very animated, bright and relaxing. The low res graphic style really adds a lot to the gameplay style.
Little devil defines itself as an RPG style game. But, it as hunting, survival and an open world to freely explore. Its sounds to me like its a survival sandbox hideing as an RPG game? Either way,
this will be a very interesting game to follow as we begin the new year of 2018.

SMALL LAND

  Okay, i searched long and hard for any .... ANY information on this game, and all i could find was this youtube video. So, if anyone reading this knows anything about this game that we could update our wiki page with, please let us know. This game looks amazing. The idea of being shrunk down to the size of a small insect and surviving and building in the same world were all farmilar with but now.. unfamiliar with. Seems really exciting.
The website shown at the end of the video is : smalllandgame.com However, during the time of this article, the website was either down. Or.. not actually created. It does apper to be a registered website. But, isn't currently active. This game as definantly intrquied me. But, it's still a mystery on ANYTHING about it beyond the offical trailer for it above.

Pathologic 2

Check them out on STEAM!: http://store.steampowered.com/app/505230

 If your looking for a survival Horror game for 2018, then here you go...
Pathologic 2 is an open world survival thriller set in a town that’s being consumed by a deadly plague. Face the realities of a collapsing society as you make difficult choices in seemingly lose-lose situations. The plague isn’t just a disease. You can’t save everyone.
After watching the gameplay trailer above, i was a little creeped out.

You have only 12 days in a town ravaged by disese to find out who killed your father.
Pathologic 2 is a reimagining of the Orginal Pathologic by Ice-Pic games.It was orginally anounced to be released in late 2017. But, its been pushed back to sometime in 2018.

SCUM


Check them out on STEAM!: http://store.steampowered.com/app/513710/SCUM/

 Jumping off of the success of Player Unknown Battlegrounds, Comes SCUM.
same concept of gameplay as PUBG, but with a really interesting PRISON island feel.
Theres a lot more under the hood mechanics that seperate these two games. But, the basic principal is the same. Hunt, hide, survive, Be the last one standing.
to quote the STEAM page:

"The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust as entertainment behemoth TEC1 is set to premiere season two of its television sensation SCUM. This new season moves the contest from the rugged, enclosed Alcatraz sector to the full grandure of Bagne de Cayenne, an island with a sordid history of violent incarceration. Both fan favorites and new prisoners will clash in a ruthless war of survival while battling for the support of viewers, producers, and corporate sponsors for fame, gifts, and a chance of life after death."

DEAD MATTER

 What would you do in a Zombie apocalypse?
Thats the question that the developers of Dead Matter want to find out. this game
offers a lot when it comes to survival in a zombie infested world. What would you do?
Build a base, run from town to town, go out on a killing masacre? or just hide?
would you team up with other survivors, or loot them dry? Theres really TOO much to go into about this game in this article. I highly recommend you check out the wiki page for more information on it or head over to the offical website at: https://playdeadmatter.com/

FADE TO SILENCE

check them out on STEAM!: LINK

 I was watching one of my favorite youtubers, IGP play this and was immediatly creeped out.
FADE to SILENCE is a creepy game. This is truly what a survival horror game should be like.
From the omnius music playing constantly in the background to the fear of what lurks in the shadows and darkness. everything about this game... the moment you turn it on. It really harkens back to resident evil, or dead space style of horror. And with a great story of survival to boot.

  So thats it, heres 6 survival sandbox that im excited to see released sometime in 2018. (hopefully)
Are there any survival sandbox or open world games your looking forward to seeing released this year? let us know in the comments
