Survivorman VR: The Descent, Featuring Survival Legend Les Stroud, Launches on Meta Quest 2 and 3 Later This Month


Immerse Yourself in an Adventure that Challenges You Through the Direst Moments of your Survival

Cream Productions — a prominent entertainment production company — is delighted to announce an October 18, 2023, release date for the VR survival game Survivorman VR: The Descent on Meta Quest 2, and the upcoming Meta Quest 3. Featuring survival legend Les Stroud, Survivorman VR: The Descent is a gripping reality-based survival simulator set in the Canadian Arctic that tests the mettle of would-be survivalists, forcing them to use their hard-earned skills, quick thinking, and creativity to battle the elements and save their own lives. 

Produced by the creative team behind the hit TV series Survivorman, Survivorman VR: The Descent is a first-person adventure simulator that gives players a simple challenge: survive a helicopter crash in the Arctic mountains and make their way to safety. Tasked with braving the wilderness and freezing temperatures, players engage in a raw test of endurance, smarts, and skill, all while working under the watchful eye of Les Stroud himself. As they descend down the cliff face, survivalists learn to navigate icy ravines, treacherous rivers, and daring rock faces as they find their way to safety. With direct expertise from Les Stroud in the making of the game, the challenges experienced in Survivorman VR: The Descent are rooted in authentic survival.

A true survivalist in every sense of the word, Les Stroud, who pioneered the survival television genre with his hit TV show Survivorman, is considered a teacher and mentor, above all. After decades of educating viewers on how to scrape together a shelter and make fire from essentially nothing, he’s bringing survival lessons to players in the most immersive form of audio-visual simulation: virtual reality.

Key Features of Survivorman VR: The Descent:
