505 Games has announced 'How To Survive', a top-down zombie-survival action game due for release on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC this autumn.

Developed by EKO Studios, How To Survive sees players stranded on a group of islands following a zombie outbreak, and who must craft tools and weapons and seek food, water and shelter in order to survive.

505 says that the game features a "robust crafting system" which lets players craft anything from fishing rods to Molotov cocktails, a "unique survival guide" and a "host of playable characters". Judging by the name of the screenshots, three of them will be called Abby, Jack and Kenji.

Players will also get to work alongside other survivors in online and local multiplayer.

Head through to our How To Survive screenshot gallery to take an early look at the game.
