Survivorman VR: The Descent is a game of endurance, smarts, and skill, with challenges based on real-world survival scenarios as experienced by Les on his many survival expeditions. Les considers himself a teacher above all, and after decades of educating viewers on how to scrape together a shelter and make fire from essentially nothing, he’s bringing the survival lessons to players first-hand in the most immersive form of audio-visual simulation available: virtual reality.After narrowly evading disaster in a devastating helicopter accident, players must use all of their skills to not only survive severe conditions, but also scale an intimidating mountain to the point where they can be saved. Players must negotiate icy ravines, craft hunting traps, and, most importantly, keep the fire alive by using their arsenal of talents and any objects they can scavenge to fulfill challenges.
