[PCGamer] Survarium hands-on: the free-to-play shooter with a survivalist streak

When Vostok Games’ community manager Joe Mullin describes existence in Survarium as being “like Bear Grylls, but with a gun,” I can’t help but think he’s severely overestimated the TV survivalist’s abilities. Bear Grylls has never killed a man for a bottle of vodka to stave off radiation poisoning, for example. Bear Grylls has never waited for sunrise to loot an abandoned radar tower, fearing mutant infestation. Bear Grylls has never walked the irradiated landscape of the ex-Stalker developer’s post-apocalypse. With a bit of luck and a lot of time, we might.

Everyone should be excited about Vostok’s vision for what they want Survarium to be. In free roam mode players will have to survive in huge, deadly zones full of mutants and wandering human survivors. A mysterious event has scarred reality. Shimmering anomalies can tear apart unwary creatures. Warped foliage releases deadly spores. Gas-masked humans form alliances where they can, running regular salvage missions to retrieve weapons and food supplies. Vostok are planning for it to be Stalker 2 in all but name, but expanded with a multiplayer mode that lets 45 players take their persistent survivors onto a single server in an even more intense and dangerous take on DayZ.

Survarium hands-on: the free-to-play shooter with a survivalist streak


I really like the idea of a free roaming survival game like this that focuses on exploration for resources above everything else. Kinda why I play Minecraft, except Minecraft is a bit too easy for me now a days. Hoping for something very challenging, and would like to see the servers go to 64 players per map.

Been keeping an eye on this,I love the kind of game it's promising to be and the developing studio is composed of mostly the entire team that made the Stalker series,so hoping they will not disappoint.

It says in the article they're using a new engine.

Signed up for the alpha ages ago, and have been anxiously awaiting any news. I'm a huge STALKER and Metro fan, so this game has me pumped.

I understand that they are creating the engine from scratch but does it remind anyone else of Far Cry 3 a little bit, from those screenshots?

Stalker's single-player was legendary, but the multiplayer left a lot to be desired. Really looking forward to this. :)
