Desolate is a first person horror survival game where you form a research team with up to 4 players and explore an open world filled with mysteries and unsolved questions, or do it all on your own.

Desolate is a first person survival game, with a nerve-wracking horror atmosphere and a unique setting of an alternate-history 1980’s Soviet Union.

Players will be able to explore an open world, filled to the brim with mysteries and unsolved questions. Do it on your own - or form a research team with up to 4 players and wander through the Island together.

Two years ago Granichny Island became an epicentre of a large-scale disaster of unknown origin. “The New Light” conglomerate covered up this catastrophic event - and now aims to rectify the consequences as much as they can.

A massive campaign is underway, during which so-called “Volunteers” are sent out onto Granichny. Their mission - to research the paranormal activities of the island, gathering information and undertaking dangerous tasks, all in hope of amending mistakes of the past.

Play the role of a Volunteer, and explore a place filled with threats of every shape and size - from monsters and madmen to supernatural anomalies and seemingly impossible weather patterns. Journey through the present of this forsaken world to uncover its secrets.

Desolate is available through Steam Early Access for $16.99 / £12.74 / €16.99 (15% off original price).

Desolate already has tons of content for Early Access players to offer. The game is fully playable, has 2 Story Acts out of 3 currently planned (it will take more than 10 hours to complete even for advanced players), and Daily Missions as well as the ability to explore the island in both single player and multiplayer with up to 4 people in total.

Starting today, players all across the world, alone or in the groups of 4, will be able to explore Granichny, the eerie and mysterious man-made island on which the game’s events take place.

Granichny holds infinite mysteries, most of them dangerous in one way or another - and it’s up to the player to decide how to approach them. Investigate Granichny, gather materials needed for survival, and craft dozens of unique items to withstand the dangers of the island.

Key Features:

  • Unite with up to 4 players, or act as a lone wolf to prove your mettle - the choice is yours.
  • Explore the enigmatic island to investigate its secrets - find notes and diaries from the island’s previous settlers to uncover its dark past.
  • Fight for your life against monsters, other humans, supernatural threats, and even nature itself.
  • Unlock new abilities and train them to increase your chances of survival
  • Military bases, abandoned settlements, top secret facilities and other unique locations await a curious explorer - whether you set out to complete a mission or to simply explore the island, you’ll find something new everywhere you look.
  • Gather recipes and components to craft, modify and upgrade your weapons and equipment.
  • Customize your Volunteer with new clothing and armor you scavenge among the wastes.
