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.
If you are interest in MMOFPS (massively multiplayer online first-person shooter) I would suggest following these guys at Vostok-Games.
I know a lot of my visitors are S.T.A.L.K.E.R fans and you probably already know that GSG Game World has closed (hence Stalker 2 won’t be released) and it’s sad, especially if you are a gamer who enjoys post-apocalyptic games such as Stalker and Fallout.
But I have great news, I recently learned that the developers behind STALKER has grouped together and formed Vostok-Games. these guys are spending massive time on creating Survarium.

As a big fan of the people behind the Stalker series and now Vostok-Games, I can’t help but imagine a world in caos, a world with monsters, mutants, (zombies?), and different factions of people who have teir view on the zone in Survarium.
The game will be a Free Online game which is a little weird for me to think about, imagine playing Stalker online, at first the thought was a little scary because I enjoy single-player a lot. But then imagine grouping up with your friends or someone on the server you play on to assists you on a mission, imagine that you walk through the industrial complexes with deadly silence around you in the beautiful atmosphere these developers are well-known of creating. Now imagine that you’re friends dies in the game and you stand all alone in the zone of Survarium, you have to survive, you have to complete your mission, you have to earn the money and the equipment to survive….
Survarium is going to set a whole new standard for MMOFPS games, just like The Elder Scrolls made a new standard for RPG Fantasy games, and as WoW made a standard for MMORPG. Survarium is planned to be released at the end of 2013 so there’s quite a while untill it’s released. Ofcourse we would all hope it was released before they even thought of making it, but great development takes great time.
It’s always nice to see the people behind a franchise we as “users” look forward to. On the picture to the left you can see the Vostok-Games team which consists of 20 people.
If you have the eye of a lonesome stalker you can spot a monitor on the left side revealing some secrets about the Zone’s architecture….
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.
