Survarium _o

1. Survarium is a free2play MMOFPS game set in the near future.
2. It is developed with a new proprietary Vostok Engine technology and is planned for release on the PC in late 2013.
3. The game focuses on a large-scale ecological catastrophe across Earth, which has caused countries to collapse, leading to a state of anarchy.

4. Survarium will be a session-based game, so that the developers can constantly expand the number of new locations available to the player.
5. Players will face traps, anomalies, unexpected enemy actions, strange and dangerous mutants and more within the game world.
6. Many of the game elements will be common to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, such as survival, anomalies, factions, mutants etc.
7. The game will be solely multiplayer, with no offline mode.
8. It will feature and revolve around an interesting story that will primarily unfold through Player versus environment (PVE) missions. As the game story unfolds, the game locations will change.
9. Currently, there are a total of 9 factions planned, though not all will be accessible to players. However, players will be able to make their own clans.
10. There will be a reputation system, i.e., killing people or helping others in need will have an impact.
11. All the gameplay content in Survarium will be available free of charge, though the developers will introduce a mild monetization system. For example, most weapons will be available to purchase without real money, but some premium guns will be offered for real payment. However, these will not be designed to give the player a "pay-2-win" advantage.
12. There will not be any randomly generated quests; all quests will be tailor-made to avoid the repetitive feel.
13. An open beta test of Survarium is planned.
14. Certain missions in the game will be designed for a squad to separate, so that the player will have to act alone quite often, retaining the man alone v/s environment atmosphere and tension.
15. Unlike the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, you can play as a man or a woman :-)
