There is a brand new Survival Horror on the horizon called Deathground. It’s a Kickstarter project and is being developed by Jaw Drop Games who, in the past, have worked on the games Q.U.B.E, Q.U.B.E 2 and Hue (trying saying that after a few drinks).

According to the official Deathground website, the game is a solo and co-op survival horror game that throws players into a desperate battle for survival against deadly A.I. dinosaurs.

Deathground aims to feature both solo and co-operative gameplay so players can try to survive alone or play in teams of up to 3. Players form a group of professional hunters and survivalists on a mission to the “Deathground” to retrieve high-value loot. 

The game features dynamic gameplay enriched with objectives, stealth and combat; unpredictable AI dinosaurs; special character classes; a range of items and weapons; and truly terrifying environments, harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 4.
