SOS is a multiplayer survival game where players are tasked with retrieving a valuable relic in order to claim one of three seats on an escape helicopter.

SOS pits 16 contestants against each other in a 30-minute reality show-style challenge to escape a the dangerous tropical island of La Cuna.

Survival is key, but winning isn’t as simple as outlasting the competition. In order to escape the island, contestants will need to use the power of both their voice and personality to build bonds with other contestants and navigate the dangerous terrain. Only three contestants can make it out on the helicopter and it’s up to each of the 16 to find their best route off the island. Scheming, strategizing and even backstabbing are commonplace and the contestants who do them most skillfully often have the best chance to escape.

SOS introduces Outpost Games' Hero platform which empowers players to become performers. With Hero, every game has a live audience that gives real-time feedback and influences gameplay. By entertaining the crowd, players can climb the fame leaderboard and become the star of the show. Fans can watch the best matches and interact with their favorite performers at www.hero.tv .

In a Duos match, contestants will still get dropped at random spawn points, however, they will start on the same radio channel as their teammate, so they can coordinate and meet up. Duos is a brand new experimental feature actively in development for SOS.


SOS can be purchase at the official website for $29.99 and downloaded on the game’s official Steam page. For a limited time, players have a chance to purchase one of three Founder’s Packs, which include exclusive in-game items and gestures.

Key Features:

  • SURVIVE THE SHOW – Contestants only have 30 minutes to find a relic, signal for extraction, and grab one of three spots on the rescue chopper.
  • REAL-WORLD VOICE RESTRICTIONS – Players must find and interact with other contestants to survive, but like the real world, they can only communicate with those within shouting distance.
  • BECOME A STAR – Harken back to the days of 90’s reality shows by setting up alliances, stabbing your friends in the back, winning the affection of viewers and becoming the ultimate star.
  • COMMUNICATE AND WORK TOGETHER – In SOS, a player's voice and personality become their ultimate tools for survival. With limited resources and no long-range weapons, a player’s ability to buddy up with other contestants, share resources and know when to go it alone is key. Three people can escape the island, make sure it’s your group!
  • HERO PLATFORM INTEGRATION - Streamers have the ability to use Outpost Games’ Hero platform with SOS, giving them a new way to engage with viewers and grow their channels, while viewers can watch their favorite streamers play the game and become an interactive part of the experience like never before.

Outpost Games is a developer made up of former Electronic Arts, YouTube and Twitch veterans.
