Some people play games to relax and relax; others play games and everything is trying to kill you, and you have to stop them from doing so with only a rough hammer and a bunch of edible flowers. Of course, everyone has their own. If you are in the latter category, then we have prepared a list for you!
We are here to find out what is the best survival game on Switch, from the cute and relatively peaceful Minecrafts in the world to cruel and punitive games like the fire in the flood. Some games will let you play with others in a local or online cooperative for a more collaborative survival experience, while some games require you to build your own life in a hostile world just for company.
Survival games usually start with nothing, slowly make tools and furniture, and then tentatively explore the farther world, where there are a lot of monsters, traps and obstacles waiting for you. If you manage to survive all of this, you may also have to deal with various indicators such as hunger, thirst, temperature, oxygen, and even sanity. Don’t go out at night, okay? It’s just…don’t.
Therefore, without further ado, here are the best survival games on Nintendo Switch, in no particular order.Ready for a lot of production, and a lot of Death. good luck!

Survival games are usually about surviving in a specific environment—for example, a ruthless tundra, a post-apocalyptic bunker, or a wartime city. Subnautica extends the dark blue unknown horror to the entire ocean planet, where fish hate you and occasionally things explode for no reason.
Subnautica 1 and 2 are a bit disappointing without multiplayer games, but you may be busy arguing with particularly angry alien octopuses without feeling too lonely.
multiplayer game? Do notDifficulty option? Survival (health, oxygen, food and water meters), freedom (health and oxygen meters), hard core (permadeath, no “low oxygen” warning), and creativity (no meters)Can pets be kept? Yes it is!You can put the fish in a small water tank and hatch biological eggs

So far, we have deep water, ghostly nightmares, cold Canada and space as various living environments-but we do not have BOAT. Windbound is about ships, and the silent protagonist Kara is trying to find a way home.
Severely influenced by “Breath of the Wild”, “Bound of the Wind” is a five-chapter story about exploring the ruins of an ancient civilization while striving to support herself and improve her ship. Like many survival games, Windbound is procedurally generated, which means you never know when – or if – you will find your next meal.

“Famine” is straightforward: the purpose of the game is not to go hungry. After all, this is the easiest way to survive. But, add a layer of terrible, terrible horror—think spiders, snakes, and the subtle fear of something looking at you somewhere—Famine is more creepy than other survival games.
If you are afraid of the dark, please don’t play this game, because famine will convince you that your fears are completely valid for several reasons. But please note that Don’t Starve Together in multiplayer mode is not available on Switch.
multiplayer game? Do notDifficulty option? Hahahaha, noCan pets be kept? Kind of!You can raise pigs, rabbits and birds

If you like your survival game very much, then the fire in the flood is your game. It’s easy to get sick, get injured, or starve to death. If you manage to overcome all these threats, you are likely to be killed by a wolf or a bear.
More importantly, your exploration is limited-you are on a raft, floating on a river, and whatever supplies you manage to grab, you must steal them from the islands along the way. What if you missed an island? You are done, buddy.
multiplayer game? Do notDifficulty option? Traveler (any equipment that will not be lost when a dog dies, plus checkpoints), survivor (permanent death, more difficult to survive), endless mode (no plot, survive as long as possible)Can pets be kept? You have a dog from the beginning, named Aesop or Daisy

If you are looking at this list and think that “all these survival games don’t sound frustrating enough”, then you might really like “My War”, which adds survival mechanics to life under siege.
In Graznavia, a grim and tough city in the midst of war, you need to raid bombed houses to find the resources you need for life. Usually, these resources will not just be publicly available for you to take-they will be an important medicine for an elderly couple, or the last remaining food for a family with children, and your survival needs will be balanced, you know, you bury yours Moral capacity. Are video games not fun?

Just like the famine, the long night is about a harsh and unforgiving winter-except where the famine finally returns to spring, the long night is set against the permanently cold Canadian wilderness, where things will never get warmer.
In the story mode, you will try to find the missing travel companion Astrid and solve the incident that caused your plane to crash. If you play the game in survival mode instead, you are just trying to avoid being eaten by the bear. The story doesn’t end either-another episode of the first season of the five episodes will be aired in 2021, and the last episode will be aired sometime after this.
multiplayer game? Do notDifficulty option? Survival has permanent death and four experience settings: pilgrim (tolerance), voyager (challenge), stalker (punishment), and intruder (impossibly difficult). The story mode will guide you along the plot and provide three difficulty options, Green (tolerance), Capable (challenge) and Hardened (punishment).All difficulty options determine such as the aggressiveness of wild animals, resource generation rate, and how easy it is for you to freeze to death or starve to deathCan pets be kept? Do not! You hardly have enough food to feed yourself!

Do you know how everyone who has never been to Australia imagines that there are spiders, snakes, scorpions and other deadly animals everywhere. Once you relax your guard, they will kill you? Well, Australia is not that scary, but the green hell is definitely.I hope you like being poisoned because you are about to be poisoned a lot of.
Green Hell’s distortion of survival type is that, besides your health and energy level-which may be affected by the quality of your sleep, and whether the strange fruit you eat is a bad idea-is the Macroelement Scanner, which will track you Nutritional intake. Survival isn’t just about not dying, because you are also trying to find your missing wife Mia in this unfriendly jungle, and she may be experiencing a similar “should I eat this strange food?” journey to you.
multiplayer game? Not on the switchDifficulty option? Walk in the park (simple, no animal attacks), welcome to the jungle (balanced), the king of the jungle (difficult, the enemy is more hostile) and the green hell (very difficult, the enemy is more hostile, including permanent death, when you die Time you will lose everything)Can pets be kept? If you have parasites in your skin, does that count?
