'Stranded Deep' on PS4 and XBox One: Release Date, Price and Reviews

Stranded Deep will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, today, April 21. The game will be released at 1 a.m. local time on Xbox One and at 11 a.m. ET on PS4.

A first-person, open-world survival video game, Stranded Deep invites gamers to play as a plane crash survivor stranded in the Pacific Ocean as they explore exotic underwater and island environments, hunt for supplies to craft tools, weapons, and shelter, and try to stay alive.

The game developers describe the game in a post on the PlayStation blog, saying: "You'll experience crazy encounters against sharks, giant squid, and other sea creatures. Defend against attacks on land from wild boar, snakes and other native threats.

"Hunger, thirst, and exposure will work against you as you brave the elements. It shouldn't and won't be easy... but if you survive through it all, you can escape!"

Early fans of the video game have been asking is Stranded Deep finished yet, as the game has been in the works for a few years. Stranded Deep was first released as an early access game in 2015, before it was fully developed, and it was announced that the game would launch on PlayStation 4 in 2018.

However, the game's publisher, Telltale Publishing, went out of business, so the developers have published it themselves, under Beam Team Publishing.

In the blog post, the game developers, Ben Massey and Sam Edwards from Beam Team said: "Following the closure of the previous publisher we had been partnering with, we bought back the console rights so that we could publish it ourselves, along with the support of industry friends and the community.

"It's been an incredible, crazy journey to finish what we started."
