Today's Update and news on the Story Mode Online Coop.

December 20th, 2013

Dear community,

When finalizing the Story Mode Online Coop patch, we came across some unexpected challenges that we are solving. In order to address the issues effectively we will not be able to publish the patch before the holidays as we planned.

We deeply regret this situation; we now expect to release Story Mode Online Coop in January. However, we have updated the game today with the following:

  • Custom mapping for controller keys in order to support universal controllers
  • A mouse sensibility option has been added
  • Users will now be able to save their progression in safe houses (unlocked after Kovac island in multiplayer, unlocked after the first island in single player)
  • Show real-time evolution of challenge score (hide by default, can be displayed during challenges by pressing F1).
  • In game Santa for Steam (Just for the holidays)

    Happy holidays and have a great new year!

“How To Survive is more than just a solid zombie role-playing game, it's also one of the best games of the year. With its mix of Diablo-esque hack and slash and dual-stick shooter action, 505 Games' newest Xbox Live Arcade game is a real surprise. It has a deep crafting system and a world you can't help but want to explore. How To Survive rewrites the book on zombie RPGs!”
90% – Gaming Nexus

“While there have been several games that have recently released that fall into the growing zombie survival genre, How to Survive manages to do enough differently to earn its place among the crowd. The game’s strong emphasis on crafting and juggling basic human needs helps distinguish itself from other titles. Additionally, the story campaign features a tale that manages to contain a few plot twists despite its simplicity. One area where How to Survive shines is the game’s strange brand of humor which is helped along by the title’s decent voice acting. In all, How to Survive is recommended to any fans of either the undead or survival simulators. Those who enjoy intricate crafting or top-down gaming should also give it a look.”
4 Stars – Examiner

“In terms of graphic and sound design, How to Survive looks good and sounds even better. The lighting gives real-time shadows based on not only the source but the time of day as the shadows move with the passing sunlight. The island is beautifully rendered, and animations are fluid and zombie deaths are pleasingly gory, chunks of body parts will liter the ground and roll depending on the shape of the surface”
8/10 – Gamer Horizon
