PVE Beta Servers are here!

Hello everyone! After months of waiting we are finally proud to release our first wave of PVE servers. This game mode is currently in Beta and may feel easy. However at Pure FPS we are striving to make our PVE equally as difficult as our PVP mode by bringing the fear of the Nether back into the game!

With our latest update you should be seeing out new game mode live with the words : PVE at the end of the server title.

About This Game

Nether is a fast-paced survival game that forces you to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as 'Nethers'. These creatures and the other players are real challenges to overcome, requiring tactical gameplay, awareness, stealth, and cooperation. To navigate this high-tension environment, you must use skill and cunning in order to scavenge, trade, craft or loot for food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to stay alive in a desolate and dangerous city. Team up with other survivors and take advantage of group play, as a tribe, to complete treacherous world objectives, or play as a lone wolf in an attempt to endure the hostile environment. In the end you must decide whether to Prey or Pray.

Key Features


EXPLORE
The game's landscape is a beautifully conceived vision of a post apocalyptic Chicago, ravaged by disaster and time. Almost every low and high-rise building can be individually explored in a cityscape that stretches 150 blocks. Beyond the city lies the Wastelands, an unforgiving desolate landscape that is slowly sinking into the earth.

SURVIVE, CRAFT, TRADE, LOOT AND SHOOT
Start off, armed only with a kitchen knife and scavenge your way through an environment on a daily battle to stay alive. Beware the Nether, poor mutated souls who roam the city in search of human flesh. Scavenge for food and water to stay nourished, and search for useful items that could be crafted into makeshift weapons to help in your battle for life. Hunt and kill Nether to trade their body parts to the mysterious Cult located in the few markets that scatter the city. Over time, build up your skills and earn rewards for surviving each precious new day. But always beware of the other survivors who may be only one moment away from death, and see killing you and looting your possessions as their only salvation.

TRIBES AND TERRITORY WARS
Find safety in numbers by joining a tribe. Only tribes can capture and own territory, and the urban landscape is the perfect setting for turf domination. Compete with rival tribes in territory wars for control of the city by capturing strategic landmarks to reap resources and experience; prove your dominance over all other tribes. Spy on rival tribes or infiltrate and kill them by playing as a Nether. Ambush them from above by swooping in for the kill using the wing suit. Tribes change the survival experience by establishing a true social construct, with all the consequences of behavior that you would expect in the real world. Your actions have real repercussions enforced organically through reputation and standing.

PLAYER AND GROUP MISSIONS
Players can complete an assortment of individual or group missions to earn money, experience and reputation. Perform vital supply runs between the markets, work with your tribe to take down the swarms of Nether lead by the vicious boss Reaper that sporadically surge to attack neighborhoods, or keep the creatures out of the Safezones by working in groups to repair the anti-nether devices when they fail.

CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION
Nether offers a wide variety of character customization and allows you to play as a male or female character. There is a huge selection of cosmetic items and player taunts to assert your individuality along with entire outfits to play roles like survivalist, soldier and biker - or even just play in your underwear.

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, "If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately." Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- "Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway.

***Warning to all Oceanic Players***

All Oceanic servers are gone. I attempted to ask if we can expect them back at some point however I received no reply after 3 attempts. If you purchase this game be aware of the following:

- Only EU and US servers
- The game seems to update every 7 months now
- The game is worthy of Beta stage but consider it complete
- Months ago the community manager vanished and majority of the development team left

The overall game is fun! The concept of DayZ but more action and less simulation, especially with the all unwordly creatures you will be facing more often than Humans. I have enjoyed playing the game for a number of hours but I'm frustrated about the removal of aussie servers and now I canno't even play the game without 300+ ping.

This is a game you may keep saying "Boy this game does have potential" but your hopes gradually dimishes until your dissapointment takes over and you begin to hate it.

When I saw this game, I thought it would be immensly fun. Scavenging a ravaged city for supplies and weapons, food. Basically staying alive. I am a huge fan of the survival genre you see. But, what did I get with this game?

To be completely honest. This game is wasted potential. I played it from a very early stage, and since then, they've added literally nothing. Oh sure, they added a new area. But walk 5 feet there, and you fall through the map. I remember one time, I logged in, I was basically in spectator mode, flying about and watching everyone. The game is broken beyond redemption.

Do the developers listen to the community? Hardly. Do they address any of the bugs, map glitches and hacking? Do they fix them? Absolutely not. The original creators of the studio ( who made WarZ, AKA, Infestation: Survivor Stories ), actually stopped doing anything with the game and handed it over to a new studio! That sure does tell you what they think of their game.

The graphics are quite decent, but the game is so unoptimised. There is little to no story or plot as to why the city is ravaged.

3/10. Please. Do yourself a favour, and spend your money on something else. It just isn't worth it.

- List is too long.

Pros;
- Not much space required
- computers/laptops can run it
- you'll be having a thrill, walking for hours.
