From DayZ to H1Z1 and from Rust to Minecraft, the games industry is in no shortage of survival sims. But while the overcrowding of the genre might make some developers run a mile, Semaphore Lab has high ambitions for its Saudi Arabian survival sim Badiya, with the team hoping to use the title to change perceptions of the Middle East.
Announced earlier this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Badiya is set just after World War 1 and will feature tanks, planes, boats, horses and, naturally, a whole lot of desert. As part of E3 2016, Semaphore has now released a brand new Badiya gameplay trailer showing some of these features off. You can watch the video after the break.
