Move over Palworld, there's a new contender in the realm of survival games, and it's making waves. Enshrouded, an open-world survival game with an action-RPG twist, has burst onto the scene with a bang since its early access release. SteamDB reports that the game has already garnered over 160,000 concurrent players in the days following its January 24 launch. Developer Keen Games proudly boasts that Enshrouded has attracted over a million players so far, securing its place as the second-best-selling game on Steam, right behind Palworld.
But what sets Enshrouded apart from its competition? Well, imagine a world where survival meets exploration, where battles against colossal bosses are fought, and where players must strategically choose complementary skills to work together as a team. Picture yourself skillfully parrying, blocking, and dodging rolls, all while wielding an impressive array of weapons and magic. Enshrouded offers all this and more in its action-packed gameplay.
And that's not all—Enshrouded's creative building system allows players to bring their wildest ideas to life. The voxel-based construction mechanics give you the power to craft your own base or town with precision, attracting NPCs that offer advanced crafting options. Imagine the possibilities as you create powerful weapons and armor to aid you in your survival journey. It's a game where your imagination is the limit, and the satisfaction of building something remarkable is its own reward.
Keen Games is not resting on its laurels, though. The development team has big plans for Enshrouded's future. Additional features, expanded game world with new locations, and formidable enemies are all on the horizon. More skills, equipment, weapons, and building materials are also in the pipeline, ensuring that players will have a wealth of content to keep them engaged and entertained.
While Keen Games hopes to take Enshrouded out of early access within a year, they are keen to emphasize that player feedback will play a crucial role in shaping the game's development and timing. As the game evolves, so too will the price. So, if you're intrigued by the promise of Enshrouded, now is the perfect time to jump in and experience the game at its early access price of $30 before it increases.
While Palworld currently reigns supreme in terms of revenue and player count, boasting an impressive 2 million concurrent players, Enshrouded offers a refreshing alternative for those seeking a different survival game experience. With its "Very Positive" average user-review score on Steam, based on over 13,000 reviews, it's clear that Enshrouded has struck a chord with players who crave adventure and exploration without the monster-collecting aspect.
In the midst of this heated competition, the Pokemon Company has taken notice of Palworld, a game labeled by the internet as "Pokemon with guns." Amid accusations of borrowed or plagiarized Pokemon designs, the Pokemon Company has announced its intention to investigate and address any potential intellectual property infringements. It seems the world of survival games is not without its own share of controversies.
As Enshrouded continues to captivate players with its immersive gameplay and creative possibilities, the battle for dominance in the survival game genre rages on. Will it dethrone Palworld and claim the throne for itself, or will both games find their own dedicated fan bases? Only time will tell. For now, grab your weapons, gather your friends, and step into the enchanting world of Enshrouded, where survival meets creativity in a symphony of chaos and adventure.
