One of Twitch’s rising stars is finally getting its Early Access game on as SOS is due to hit the program on January 23rd.
From the press release:
In SOS, 16 players compete to retrieve a valuable relic from the ruins of a mysterious island in order to escape via helicopter. 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.
