Christmas Giveaway: ARK, Rust & More Early Access Survival

Get in the holiday spirit by hunting down fellow gamers, stabbing them in the back, and stealing all their loot.
Survival Giveaway - Christmas 2016
If there’s anything that made gaming in 2016 special (not necessarily in a good way), it’s Early Access. But who are we to argue: we asked our community more than once, and survival sandboxes seem to be on everyone’s bucket list.
That’s why this Christmas we’ll give you a shot at getting a free copy of some of the most popular early access multiplayer open world survival sandboxes (that’s a mouthful, shall we go with EAMOWSS??). If you can’t buy your way in, try your luck with us!

What are we giving away?

Whatever your gaming fetish, we have 16 exciting EAMOWSS titles ready to be won. Read on to learn a bit more about these games, and fill in that participation form for a chance to snag a free copy.

ARK: Survival Evolved

ARK: Survival Evolved
As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing & starving on a mysterious island, you must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, & build shelters to survive. Use skill & cunning to kill, tame, breed, & ride Dinosaurs & primeval creatures living on ARK, and team up with hundreds of players or play locally!
Apparently we can never have enough ARK giveaways, so don’t say we never did anything for ya! We have a total of 3 copies to give away, so if mounting dinos is your thing get your saddles ready and cross your fingers!


In H1Z1: Just Survive you’ll have to be cutthroat, resourceful, and alert to protect yourself from zombies, beasts, and the deadliest threat of all – your fellow humans. H1Z1: King of the Kill is a fast-paced shooter in which players compete in large-scale chaotic PvP spectacles of skill, wit and a little luck, where everyone must fight to the death to stand alone at the top of the podium.
Buy H1Z1
We’re only giving away one copy of H1Z1, but it includes both Just Survive and King of the Hill modes — double yay for whoever wins it!

Life is Feudal: Your Own

Life is Feudal
Hardcore and realistic; LiF is a Medieval multiplayer sandbox RPG, with free terraforming, a rich crafting system and preset and modular building construction. With engaging survival aspects, no target physics-based combat and a unique formation system – along with numerous other features – Life is Feudal allows for up to 64 players on a 3km x 3km gameworld, where any and all paths are an option.
Buy Life is Feudal
Sharpen your spears and go fight some bears, because we have three copies of Life is Feudal. Spears not included, make your own!

Savage Lands

Savage Lands
Your fight for survival begins on the frozen shores of a mysterious island, where bitter cold and vicious creatures conspire to defeat the unprepared. Uncover the land’s dark history as you and fellow castaways explore and conquer the hostile wilderness of Savage Lands.
Buy Savage Lands
This fantasy sandbox is almost as savage as its recent Steam reviews, but we hope our three winners will enjoy it regardless.


The only aim in Rust is to survive. To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Build a fire. Build a shelter. Kill animals for meat. Protect yourself from other players, and kill them for meat. Create alliances with other players and form a town. Whatever it takes to survive.
Buy Rust
Rust is certainly one of the more known survival games, and we’re giving away a total of 3 copies for the luckiest of cannibals.


GRAV is a sand box experience where you explore a multitude of planets, hunt strange alien creatures, build and defend outposts, craft weapons and armor, and attempt to survive against other players in a hostile environment.
Aliens, planets, no zombies, excitement! 3 winners will get to enjoy it all in this capslock title which is worth taking a look at.

Those are the 6 titles we have for this giveaway, and we hope you’ll enjoy our selection. In case you like the genre, there’s always a couple dozen other sandbox survival games we can pick at a later date.
Totals: ARK x3, H1Z1 x1, Life is Feudal x3, Savage Lands x3, Rust x3, GRAV x3.
