Open world survival title The Signal announced

The Signal

The Signal is an open world survival title, with a key focus on pushing player creativity over violence.

The Signal has themes of environmental awareness, and your approach when it comes to playing the game can alter the environment significantly.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

The Signal – which is being developed in Unreal Engine 5 for console and PC – is built upon the three key pillars of exploration, invention, and (yes, you guessed it) survival. With a focus on user-generated crafting content, the game’s unique recipe sharing system and sustainability theme set it apart from the wealth of quality titles operating in this space.

“We’re really excited about the world we’re building for The Signal,” says Theodor Diea, CEO and founder of Goose Byte. “We want to take players on a journey: as you step out onto this uncharted planet you are faced immediately with an environment that is as mysterious as it is beautiful. This planet is teeming with unknown flora and fauna across multiple, massive biomes. But not everything is as it seems. The planet is fully aware of your actions and, the longer you spend exploring, the more it starts interacting and messing with you.”

In The Signal, you will:

  • Venture onto an alien planet featuring multiple biomes littered with strange structures and a sentient ecosystem that seems to react to your every move.
  • Explore, create, and survive as you choose to tame or coexist with your new home.
  • Scan the rocks, flora, fauna, and alien landmarks as you come to grips with this strange new world.
  • Invent and share infrastructure, vehicles and equipment that help you and your expedition solve challenges and puzzles.
  • Master the art of sustainable stewardship of the Planet and its resources as you play the long game.
  • Play alone or with up to 16 players on player-hosted dedicated servers on this unique expedition through a one-of-a-kind planet.

The Signal is set to release at some point for consoles and Microsoft Windows (through Steam).
