Which games are discounted?

Unsurprisingly given the name: survival games. However, this does not only mean classic representatives such as Ark: Survival Evolved, but Valve’s definition goes a little further. We present a few selected highlights:

When it comes to survival games in general, the Rust name is a must. The game from the developer Facepunch Studios is one of the founders of the genre and provides everything you are looking for in this genre: you have to take care of your hunger and thirst, gradually put together your own equipment, build a base and much more more.

The focus here is on the PvP part. While there are individual PvE elements in Rust, these are more of an accessory. Instead, it’s all about combat and, at times, intense roleplay on Rust’s many online servers. If you feel like it, we can also support you with some tips for starting the game:

In addition to Rust as a classic, there are even more offers:

  • Ark – Survival Evolved: Another genre classic that has been delighting players for years with its dinosaur scenario and extensive survival elements. (8 euros, reduced by 67 percent)
  • DayZ: After a rather bumpy early access course, the spin-off of the Arma series has now developed into a dignified representative of the genre and still delivers unforgettable adventures. (24 euros, reduced by 40 percent)
  • Subnautica: An underwater adventure that, unlike many other survival games, is purely a single player experience, but still focuses on the fight for survival. (15 euros, reduced by 50 percent)

  • Ancestors – The Humankind Odyssey: The action-adventure tells about the evolution of human history and begins in Africa about ten million years ago. (16 euros, reduced by 60 percent)
  • Starbound: Sandbox RPG with randomly generated worlds, the look and feel of which is reminiscent of Terraria. However, you can travel to countless planets with your own spaceship. (3 euros, reduced by 75 percent)
  • State of Decay 2: What would survival be without zombies? Correct: Much less fun, which is why you get to deal with a lot of undead either alone or in co-op. (10 euros, reduced by 66 percent)
  • Timberborn: This growth strategy game is all about beavers who want to start their own colony and survive in inhospitable areas. (17 euros, reduced by 20 percent)
