Best Xbox Survival Games
This is a full list of the best Survival games available on Xbox.
We define Survival games using the genre definition: Survival games give players limited resources to survive. While enemies may be present, the focus is generally on the player's own survival against a hostile environment. Statistics such as hunger and thirst are governed by meters and need to be replenished in order to prevent death. Crafting elements are generally present, as well as the ability to construct weapons, buildings, or upgrades to aid in long-term survival.
