Sir, You Are Being Hunted alpha set for Aug. 19 release

Sir, You Are Being Hunted developer Big Robot plans to release the alpha version of the open-world survival game Aug. 19, the studio announced today in a new gameplay video.

Big Robot has been running closed alpha testing for a little more than a week with players who backed the game's Kickstarter campaign for at least £30. At the initial launch next month, the studio will open up the alpha to all its Kickstarter backers and anyone who has pre-ordered on the company's website.

According to Big Robot founder Jim Rossignol, the alpha release will feature three different biomes: fens (seen in the video above), rural and mountains, and users will be able to play through the game from start to finish. After the alpha launches, Big Robot plans to add the industrial and castle biomes as well as additional content such as hunting and gathering systems.
