Survival: Fountain Of Youth is a single-player survival game set in the 16th-century Caribbean islands.

Dive into an open-world survival crafting experience as a shipwrecked member of Juan Ponce de León’s expedition for the Fountain of Youth. Awaken on the shores of an uninhabited archipelago and get to work securing shelter, food, and water. Stave off hunger, thirst, and dangerous diseases while exploring uncharted environments, scouring for clues to the missing crew’s location, and crafting weapons and tools to establish a base of operations.

Combine a myriad of materials to assemble a wealth of useful items. Start with primitive bows, ideal for small game hunting, and eventually progress to powerful muskets strong enough to fight back against the archipelago’s deadly predators. Lash wood together and build a simple raft capable of exploring nearby landmarks, and work tirelessly to eventually assemble a glorious Spanish schooner to patrol for secrets across the tropical paradise.

Travel to different islands with sea vessels to seek out signs of fellow explorers, but be prepared for unexpected challenges. Assemble supplies before setting out on sea voyages and unlock new regions by either uncovering mapping notes abandoned by previous expeditions, referencing copper plaques hidden in ancient ruins, or crafting more technologically advanced vessels capable of longer trips. Plot a route and set sail on an epic journey full of ancient civilizations to explore, mysterious messages from missing crew members, and the clues tied to the secret of the fabled Fountain of Youth.

One question remains: Will you survive long enough to gain eternal youth?

Publisher Twin Sails Interactive and developer Odinsoft announced that Survival: Fountain of Youth is leaving Early Access and will pull into port for 1.0 on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on May 21, 2024.

The 1.0 launch will debut a host of new content also coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S when it docks onto consoles later in 2024.

The 1.0 update will add the fifth and final region of Bimini Island, a new ship, and the final boss battle. Alongside today's announcement, new quality of life updates have been implemented including a new save system, home furniture, improved tutorial, and other features.

The teams at Odinsoft and Twin Sails have incorporated early access explorers feedback. Save progress whenever, no longer restricted by autosaves or upon exiting the title. New furniture has been added to craft and to spruce up island bases, alongside naval themed decor with the ‘Sea Wolf Pack’ DLC.  

Survivalists can expect the new region of Bimini Island, a new ship that doubles as a fully mobile base called the Ark, and a final boss with far greater killing capabilities than any of the island's wildlife. Also accompanied by new quests, skill books, survival tasks, recipes, and the epic conclusion surrounding the Fountain of Youth when 1.0 launches.

“As huge fans of survival games, the team has passionately spent countless painstaking hours crafting a one-of-a-kind experience for other fans of the genre,” said Stas Kotrutsa, Development Lead, Odinsoft. “We have learned so much throughout early access, taken the community's input into consideration, and are happy to share our work with the full 1.0 release.”

Key Features:

  • Survive in the 16th century: Dangerous animals, weather, plants, diseases, injuries, hunger, thirst, exhaustion — everything will test your strength and ability to survive. With over 30 animal species and their own habitats and behaviors, there are plenty of creatures to cook and hunt but be careful to not become the prey... With the scorching Caribbean heat, the relentless storms, the malaria infested swamps and poisonous plants, the Bimini archipelago is full of hazards to overcome. Crafting, building shelter, improving your skills and exploring the islands in search of resources are key to your survival. Are you ready to take on the challenge?
  • Travel the seas: To travel between islands, you can build a variety of sea vessels — from primitive rafts to the 16th century Spanish schooner. Find your way to open new routes to unknown lands, prepare for the expeditions, and find out what mysteries lay ahead.
  • Craft your way through sticks and stones to gunpowder: There are hundreds of items that can be crafted and used for survival, from the simplest tools made of sticks and rocks to advanced muskets, metal armor and tools. You can also build a variety of workshops, from primitive leather dryers to pre-industrial era machines. Each action you perform improves your skills — strength, cooking, skinning, shooting, and more. Survive and develop new abilities to evolve from a clumsy rookie to a hardcore survivor.
  • Explore 15+ unique islands: Each island is special — with its own landscape, climate, weather, flora, fauna and resources. From the desertic caatinga, to the crocodile-filled mangrove thicket and the bustling underwater biome surrounding shipwrecks and reefs; this open world is no Caribbean paradise… Explore new lands, adapt to their conditions, solve the mysteries they keep and seek for unique treasures.
  • Uncover the mythical fountain’s location: While finding clues and traces of your shipmates, you will stumble upon remnants of an ancient civilization that perished for an unknown reason. Search ruins and temples, decipher centuries-old puzzles and unveil the mystery behind the legendary Fountain of Youth

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Survival: Fountain Of Youth is coming to PC (Steam) on May 21, 2024, followed by PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2024.
