Post apocalyptic MMOFPS, Survarium, has launched a pretty significant update to the game and players are encouraged to check out some of the key differences Vostok Games has made to the free to play shooter. In the most recent 0.29 update, Survarium not only gets a new map in the heart of London, but also a number of much needed balance and design changes to boot.
Sound design may not seem like a huge deal sometimes, but in a shooter (particularly one that has some type of sniper class), sound can be the difference between homing in on where that last shot came from and looking up just in time to eat a bullet. With this in mind, Vostok Games has completed a sound design overhaul when it comes to weapons. Not only will they feel and sound better when you use them yourself, but echo and environment effects on gun discharges will be a better mark of where your opponent may be hiding.
Graphics have been polished again and we would expect this type of change to continue as the game is updated.
Where the changes REALLY start to hit home is in the balance department. Damage for all weapons has been scaled down. While this initially may sound like a bad thing, other stats (like armor piercing) will now have a little more importance when deciding your next loadout. Vostok Games ensures that the changes overall are in line with a more balanced gameplay and that players will not feel less powerful as a result.
