Friendships aren’t made, they’re grown.

The renowned studio behind the hit survival game The Flame in the Flood has kicked off a preview weekend of its newest game Drake Hollow.

Drake Hollow Open Beta Weekend Launches Today


All are welcome to get a glimpse into The Hollow and to meet the lovable, local vegetable folks the Drakes, between now and Monday, June 22 at 9am PT via the Xbox Insider Program.

Drake Hollow is a cooperative action village-building game set in The Hollow – a blighted mirror of our world – in which players build and defend villages of Drakes. Either solo or with friends, players follow the guidance of a mysterious crow to explore a dynamically generated and aether-swept world of islands all to help the Drakes restore their camp.
