So, what is the Survival Mode? Well, it’s quite self-explanatory. If you’ve ever played any of the dozens of survival games on Steam, such as The Forest, or DayZ, or H1Z1, you know exactly what you’re in for. Those games force players to have to adapt to their environments, scavenge for food, deal with the harsh weather, staying warm, dealing with storms, fighting off wildlife and predatory animals, and ultimately attempting to reach the end of the game with just one life. Skyrim’s Survival Mode does not deviate from that premise at all.
