The console edition is of course based on the incredibly-popular PC competitive multiplayer survival game by Facepunch Studios.

In the game you wake up alone on a post-apocalyptic island with up to 100 players and have to figure out how to stay alive. There's thirst and hunger to contend with, the elements to battle, and you need to create clothing and stay safe against the likes of other players, scientists, bears and wolves. You can end up dying to fire, drowning or radiation poisoning. You can build, too, and craft weapons, bombs and traps.
