The best survival games out there will have you on the tip of your chair for many hours to enjoy the unique experience.
Whether you are running away from a horde of zombies, trying to defend your base against other players or simply to avoid getting bitten by a poisonous insect.
Survival games can be really challenging and complex, but extremely fun as you will constantly have to deal with different things so your character stay alive.
The best thing is that there’s no one size fits all survival game.
If you don’t like zombies or horror. No problem!
You will find that there are a few different categories when it comes to survival games, like horror, nature, fantasy, PvP (player vs player) and even some that is a combination of them all thrown in one survival game.
The Survival Genre is also unique in the sense that most of them are either in Early Access now or were at some point, which means they are being developed over time.
I created a list for the best survival games in 2019 so you can experience the horrors, random strolls in nature or just hunt other players.
So I bet you’ll find a game that’s perfect for you.
1. SCUM (Early Access)
SCUM is one of the latest Early Access survival releases in 2018 and has already made a big impact on the genre by taking the mechanics to a new level.
It’s a survival game with many aspects, like PvP, surviving nature, avoiding mech robots and dealing with zombies.
You are a prisoner that is thrown on an island and your task is to survive and eventually escape.
Well, and the people that put you there is making a TV show so don’t forget to smile for the camera.

2. ARK Survival Evolved
ARK Survival Evolved is a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) survival game with a bit more in store than just your regular hunting and killing games.
Yes, you will hunt, build massive bases, farm the land and explore the wonderful open world of ARK.
But here’s the interesting part.
The island has dinosaurs on it, and a lot of them as well, more than 100 different species!
Now that is a challenge!
You can choose to use them to your advantage or hunt them, well especially if they try to kill you.
So you start as a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK.
To survive, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements.
Do you like mysterious islands?
3. The Forest
The Forest… sounds so innocent right?
But that’s how all horror stories begin.
You are going on holiday, sipping away on nice warm cup of coffee on a passenger plane, when suddenly.
The plane crashed and you find that you’re the only survivor in a lush green forest in the middle of nowhere.
Well, if you play alone. You can play with a friend to make it even better.
The Forest is a horror survival game where you will need to stay alive from many dangers. The main one being the cannibalistic cult that is all over the area.
During the daytime you’ll need to gather, build and set up defenses so you can be ready for the horrors of the night.
