Cannot wait till June to stagger round within the snow with a towering backpack on PC? Walking Simulator, a free recreation on Steam, may maintain you over for Dying Stranding’s PC launch—although it is extra probably it will simply provide you with a couple of minutes of common amusement and/or frustration.
I am not fully versed in Dying Stranding, however I do know it has very tall backpacks and lots of stumbling round on snowy mountaintops, and so does Strolling Simulator. There’s additionally one thing about incomes ‘likes’ in Dying Stranding, too, proper? Strolling Simulator has likes as nicely, which perform as a type of reward for finishing duties in addition to a foreign money. You need to use earned likes to lease a snowmobile and jetpack, in case you final lengthy sufficient.
Which you in all probability will not, as a result of principally you are simply strolling or sprinting by the snow towards a far-off map marker whereas toting no matter you choose up in your again. And it is buggy, too: after making a protracted, uninteresting, 1,200 meter jaunt to ship gasoline to a analysis put up, I bought caught within the flooring and needed to do it another time.
After making a snowmobile supply (additionally lengthy and uninteresting) I needed to climb a really tall mountain with the assistance of a really crummy jetpack, and I used to be inside 9 meters of the highest earlier than glitching by the world and falling all the best way again down.
So, yeah. It is a bit of a joke, and it is greater than a bit busted. However it’s free and in case you’re actually determined to do some strolling whereas carrying a backpack the peak of a tree, this can be your only option till June 2.
