Ylands, Bohemia Interactive's sandbox survival exploration and crafting game,  showed us a new gameplay trailer at the PC Gaming Show in Los Angeles, which you can see above. It features the game's many themes and possibilities, from island survival to pirate adventures to racing cars. And yes, that is a horse being fired out of a catapult.

Ylands allows for both single and multiplayer experiences, and besides exploring, crafting, and building, it's a platform for creating custom game modes and adventures because the game editor is built right in. Ylands is currently playable through Bohemia's Incubator initiative, but will release into Steam Early Access later this year.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
