The ecological apocalypse that is Survarium is inching towards their closed beta, according to the latest dev diary by Vostok Games. Taking place after a “green” catastrophe, this MMOFPS places players in a world of collapsing societies; where humans are no longer king. Players will encounter “poisonous plants, mutants, wild animals and yet unknown threats of anomalies” as they explore the environment.
In their latest update Vostok gives players information about their access options for the upcoming closed beta. “We already began to enroll a fairly large number of players into testing, we send out many invites on weekly basis”, said Oleg Yavorsky of Vostok Games. Yavorsky goes on to explain that registering on the site, participating in the forums and social networks will increase chances of obtaining keys. Survarium’s site will also have a “Invites Lottery” that rewards three applicants every hour with keys.
Survarium’s next task is, “to focus on purely gameplay, start working with the balance, the in-game economy as well as increase the server workload to test how the servers behave under really heavy loads with a large number of players”, according to Ruslan Didenko, Survarium’s Project Lead.
When will this close beta start? “We plan to begin that by the end of November, which is very soon,” said Yavorsky. Yes, that was very soon.
