Team17 have announced Sheltered 2, the follow-up to Unicube’s post-apocalyptic survival game from 2015.
Set 20 years after the apocalypse, Sheltered 2 tasks players with building and defending a safehouse in a dangerous new world. Build your own faction of survivors, and scavenge for resources to care for their daily needs. Fend off attacks by raiders, negotiate with other factions for valuable resources or favors, or steal from rivals by force.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
Sheltered 2 launches 2021 for Windows PC via Steam.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
It’s been twenty years since the world as we knew it ended. The last of humanity splintered into opposing factions. Will you unite or conquer?
Building upon the original 2015 fan-favourite, Sheltered 2 brings new challenges and deeper strategic gameplay. You are tasked with creating a leader and building up your faction whilst managing resources and tackling threats both natural and human. Everything from starvation and dehydration to radiation poisoning and enemy raids can prove fatal.
Sheltered 2’s new Factions system is pivotal to a base’s success. Send out expeditions to explore the vast wasteland and forge relationships, or bitter rivalries with other camps. Trade resources to grow and thrive together; or go head-to-head with rivals in an expanded combat system and grow your foothold in the wasteland. Will you ally with or dominate the other factions?
Factions: New to Sheltered 2, the Factions system allows you to create relationships with other groups that will provide your base with resources and support. Or grab your weapons and take things the old-fashioned way.
Resource Management: Balance the needs and wants of your survivors, manage the scarce resources, craft what you need and maintain the shelter’s equipment to keep the group alive.
Permadeath: New in Sheltered 2, your leader is the most important member of the shelter. If they die, the game is over. Starvation, asphyxiation, extreme temperatures and combat are just some of the challenges you’ll face in the harsh wasteland of Sheltered 2, and without the ability to respawn, every decision could be fatal.
Combat & Weapons: When negotiations fail, wield a huge variety of makeshift weaponry against hostile outsiders. Fight to the death in turn-based combat to win the critical resources you need to survive.
Characters: Your survivors have their own personalities, traits, desires and a huge list of skills to acquire. Customise them to your liking and make your faction members unique and individual.
Vehicles: Find and fix more vehicles to explore the wasteland with, from Bicycles to Pick-up trucks.
