Instead of being an isometric, survival RPG, How to Survive Third Person is a third-person survival RPG. The local co-op feature is gone but the zoomed in view now gives gamers a different way to play Eko Software’s title.
The game is 70% off for anyone who already owns the isometric version of How to Survive, and before it released Eko Software and 505 Games offered it up at a 15% discount for those who pre-ordered the game.
In a somewhat surprising twist, the game seems to have a lot of positive reviews on the Steam store page. I was half expecting a few people to get riled up and angry that they would resell the same game just with a different perspective, or that people might get angry and say that this should have just been a mod, but surprisingly there is a lot of feedback and positive support for the re-release.
As mentioned on the Steam store page…
“Driven by community suggestion, 505 Games and EKO Software introduce you to a new single player 3rd person view experience that allows you to re-play the zombie crafting adventure “How to Survive” from a deeply immersive point of view. Their rotten breath doesn’t smell any better, they don’t look any healthier, they still just grunt, but being closer up makes it a whole load more personal… “
The third-person rendition contains four islands, the original story mode, Kovac’s Way DLC, the Nina DLC, One Shot Escape DLC and the Tombstones & Backpack expansion.
If you don’t already own How to Survive then you can pick up the How to Survive Third Person release then you can grab it for $9.99. If you do already own the original game then you can pick up How to Survive Third Person at 70% off for only $2.99.

Personally, the animations look fairly stiff; and some YouTubers have commented that the fighting and combat look like an unpolished version of State of Decay.
