Survarium

http://survarium.com/en/

Survarium is a free2play MMOFPS game set in the near future. The game focuses on a mass-scale ecological catastrophe on Earth, the reasons behind vaguely known.

Impassable woods advance onto cities from every side, maddened animals and birds attack industrial complexes, military structures, warehouses and power plants. Strange plants and mushrooms grow through concrete and steel. Scientists all over the world haplessly try to cope with the anomaly sprawling across the Earth with terrifying speed. Countries collapse, anarchy spreads throughout the world. Now force dictates who to survive.

The game is developed with a new proprietary Vostok Engine technology and is planned for release on PC at the end of 2013.

Vostok Games

http://vostokgames.com/en

Our company appeared in March 2012 in Kiev. Ten years earlier, when at GSC Game World we started developing the renowned S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series and continued working on it until December 2011 when the studio was unexpectedly shut down and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 project – frozen. We did not reach agreement with the rights owner regarding the use of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand, that’s why we made the decision to move forward as an independent studio with a new project. That day became our starting point for Vostok Games.

Vostok Games is a new studio founded by veterans of Ukrainian game industry with multi-year experience of developing and releasing commercially successful projects. In March 2012 we reached agreement with Vostok Ventures Ltd. to back up the financing of our new game – free2play MMOFPS Survarium (working title).

Our mission

Create games to broaden the limits of human experience, raising topical questions of our time. These are questions of science, ecology, relations of human and nature, cruelty and inventiveness of modern civilization, and, certainly, spirituality.

Philosophy of Vostok Games

"Vostok 1" is the first space apparatus to have taken a man (Yury Gagarin) to the orbit of Earth.

The company name symbolizes a brave step towards the new experience provided by technologies. This reflects our philosophy – movement in line with technological progress, developed in harmony with the environment, where, on top of fun, players receive valuable skills and understandings applicable in real life as well.

I'm sad that STALKER 2 seems to be done now, but slightly hopeful about Survarium as it's a kind of game I've been wanting to see.

Rest in Peace GSC.

It would not be that bad if it wasn't a F2P MMOFPS but this is just throwing everything people loved about the games into the trashbin. No spine-chilling sights from the real-life Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, no crazy Monolith cultists assaulting the Barrier or anything like that.

Not to mention no mods . If the game was single-player, then there would have been at least a theoretical chance that mod teams would have been able to make "STALKER 2" for the new engine but no such luck. The MMO will run for a few years and then die away with the newly founded GSC and our hopes for a STALKER 2 will be forever ruined .

Just another pay to win cash grab MMO. But this is the future of gaming for the most part.

Sergey is front and foremost a businessman who decided it was time to move on to bigger and more profitable ventures.

As for STALKER and GSC it died with CoP.

Well Survarium does sound interesting. Postapocalyptic mmo could be awesome.

I will stay with the community. It is more important to me than the game.

Survivarium will make happy a lot of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans since S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 continues to be produced, or I can not hearing the name "Survivarium" without remembering the loss of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise, and then, this will make me, and a lot of people sad, very sad.

I am not aware of any First Person MMO's (apart from one, which I can't for the love of me remember the name of.... horizons, I think(?))

so the concept itself seem rather interesting, seeing as I personally don't play MMORPG's due to it's "click and wait to attack" kind of nature

FPS's have always been about skill (Fallout 3/New Vegas are not part of this discussion, since they are not FPS's, but rather hybrids which require little to no skill) - hence it sounds rather promising to me

if they make the game more MMO and less "Frantic Team Deathmatch" oriented, then I'm all in

I don't think this is a "grab cash and run", since it will (apparently) be F2P, hence there is no immediate loss of money for us as consumers

of course there will be micro-transactions, or similar, but I don't expect any company to create games and host servers for everyone's enjoyment without the slightest chance of making some revenue

this is not a matter of business versus caring for the fans, but rather about logic - if you want to spend your time focusing on a job (in this case creating games), then you better get paid somewhere along the line, since or else you will eventually run out of money

I think the gathering hate right now is geared more towards the lack of a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, rather than Survarium itself as a game

for anyone who has (from scratch) a deep-rooted hate for this game, please do point out where/how they have failed thus far

this game was just announced and the premise may not be as intriguing to those of us who prefer single-player games, but there really isn't enough information regarding the game itself to start bashing it
