Telltale Publishing will bring The Fun Pimps’ survival game 7 Days to Die to PS4 and Xbox One digitally and at retail this June.
7 Days to Die is an open-world survival game mixing first person shooter, survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing elements. It features combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth.
“Telltale Publishing seeks to bring the best and most innovative games in their genres to new audiences. 7 Days to Die has already thrilled over 1.5 million PC users worldwide, and we’re delighted to bring this game from the PC to consoles everywhere,” said Steve Allison, SVP Publishing at Telltale, Inc. “The Fun Pimps have redefined what the survival genre can be with unrivalled world-building, crafting, and character growth. With overwhelmingly positive user feedback for the PC version, we can’t wait to expose a brand new audience to this exceptional and terrifying sandbox experience.”
“7 Days to Die is a labor of love for our small group of games industry veterans. After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, we’re grateful to have had a wonderful response from our active community of Steam Early Access users; now, our partners at Telltale Publishing are enabling us to get the game in front of new survivors across the globe” said Richard Huenink, Co-Founder of The Fun Pimps. “We’re very excited that Telltale brought us together with the folks at Iron Galaxy, to build the game collaboratively and specifically for consoles. They have a stellar track record, and have been incredible partners in ensuring a perfect translation that includes new features and content not seen in the PC version.”
Pre-ordering 7 Days to Die will give players exclusive access to 5 character skins from Telltale’s The Walking Dead such as Michonne and Lee Everett. Additionally, the console version adds a new multiplayer mode supporting local split-screen for couch play, additional online multiplayer modes and features will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Developer The Fun Pimps also plans on supporting the game with DLC post-launch; which will be revealed at a later date. The current-gen version is set to release this June. PC players can already play the game as it is available on PC, Mac and Linux. It will retail for $29.99 USD (or it’s local equivalent).
