What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose Early Access for a number of reasons. Most notably it gives us the opportunity to develop the game alongside our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At present we have no exact timeframe for the duration of early access. As long as it can benefit the development of the game we will keep it open to the public.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Currently the Early Access version consists of a PvP mode with various different options of matches. In the final version of the game there will be not only a lot more content but two other game modes, the next to come will be the highly anticipaited Freeplay (PvE) mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the Early Access version is in open-beta of the PvP game mode, featuring 3 play modes: Team Deathmatch, Research and Battery Retrieval.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Currently you can play the game for free and we plan on keeping that approach with the final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We regularly interact with our player base on our official forums and here on steam. Discussing our plans for the game and even incorporating some suggestions put forward by you, the players.”

Read: Survarium Update 0.53 Preview

Welcome, Survivors! It's time to tell you all about what exactly the Survarium development team has been working on in recent months and what will be added to the game in Update 0.53.

Voice Chat

In 0.53 players are given a new opportunity: voice chat in PvP and PvE matches. Now you can communicate with each other directly in the game without the need of third-party applications. By default, voice chat works for allies. Each player has the ability to turn off both voice and text chat of any player and voice chat can be controlled in the audio settings.

Players can always choose not to use voice chat. This is of course if you do not want to listen to allies or want to save on internet traffic. At the moment, voice chat is available during the match, we plan to develop this further, but first we want to gather feedback from the players.

Improved Weapon Module System

This system was announced earlier in the year, finally, it will be added with the release of 0.53. Now you can use the accumulated weapon modules (of the same type) to obtain rarer modules with improved characteristics. Improving the characteristics of a module can be done using three any other modules of the same type. The chance of successful improvement is 50%, but for gold you will have a 100% success rate.

Continued Work on the Graphics Renderer

After the release of the 0.52 update, we continued to work on the new graphics renderer's visual effects. We paid close attention to optical effects and light sources. So, in 0.53 you will see the addition of God rays, lens flares, an anamorphic flare (directional bloom) and an effect of lens dirt.

In 0.52, we added SSAO, its implementation turned out to be great for quality, but quite heavy on resources. Therefore, in 0.53, we completely reworked this effect and achieved both good quality and many times better performance. In addition, a new option was added to the graphics settings: dynamic resolution scaling. If you enable this option, the resolution scaling will change in real-time to maintain the specified frame rate, which depends on the frequency of the monitor. We will continue to improve the graphic rendering in Survarium and work on optimization and image quality improvement. As always, we welcome all players to actively help us with this. In particular, improvements to SSAO were made with your help, for which we want to thank you!

New lighting on locations "Tarakanovsky Fort" and "Vector Laboratory"

As the capabilities of the new graphics render increase, we paid much attention to improving lighting in game locations. In 0.53 you will be presented with updated maps Tarakanovsky Fort and Vector Laboratory.

New Jumping Animation

The animation component of any shooter is an important aspect, so we have continued to improve the character's animation in the game. In the 0.53 we will add a new jump animation: character movements will become more responsive and natural. Moreover, now the character will be able to fire without an extra step after jumping.

New Lobby

In 0.53 we draw your attention the new design of the game lobby. A Light, cozy apartment of around 33 square meters, with a well-preserved rug and an old refrigerator, storing a cold bottle that can warm the soul. A place where you want to return to after a long day of wandering, throw your backpack onto the table and relax in a chair, drinking freshly boiled tea with a few teaspoons of sugar.

There is everything for a comfortable life: a tub for morning and evening bathing, windows, a deckchair, an improvised workbench and a pair of working lights. The house is made of solid Soviet bricks, which allows you to hear noises from above and below, and the slots in the doors not only provide a neat draft, but also guarantee additional audibility of sound from the outside. The high arrangement of the apartment provides peace and quiet and allows for restful sleep. Try your new abode and share your impressions with us!

These are only the key changes that will appear in 0.53. Also, on side note, we fixed the most frequent bugs causing the game to crash, improved network synchronization, reduced the use of video memory and more! A complete list of changes will be provided with the release of the game update. Leave your comments on the forum and follow us on social media for further news from the Survarium team!

“We’ve all fallen hopelessly in love with ruined wastelands before, but this really is exceptional.”

“It's twitchy, but as shooters go it has a tactical, methodical pace. As it evolves, the team plans to expand on that formula to include cooperative, and perhaps even single player modes.”

“The short, sharp combat is a thrill to experience, the atmosphere is thick with violence and the world looks beautiful. This isn’t just combat – it’s about hunting down humans and surviving in a brutalist landscape.”
