What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives us a chance to release game while continuing to develop and refine it.
We strive to deliver a best in class single player, coop and competitive multiplayer game and Community contribution will be critical during development phase.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Unendingly adding content day after day, we expect to release final version in 2019.
Early Access planned duration will be adjusted depending on community feedbacks.”

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

“SURV1V3 is a realistic first-person shooter with:
  • Overwhelming gameplay mixing features never seen before in a unique VR game.
  • Full locomotion, incredible gunplay, free roaming maps, zombie full dismemberment, more than 20 zombie models with different behaviors, thrilling twists, hand gestures and a lot more…
  • Unexpected cooperative (up to 3 players) and pervasive dynamics will take place when living the experience together with your friends, making the challenge even more exciting.
  • An endless experience, in addition to story mode (final release will have prologue + 3 chapters) and trials mode, final SURV1V3 release will include a fresh new PvP mode.
  • Realism like you’ve never seen before! Fully simulated player’s body, realistic weapons recoil & bloom effects, true life weapons reload, weapons accessories, real bullet physics, realistic zombie perception system, no player hud, friendly fire…

Multiplayer competitive mode will be developed later on: you will be able to challenge yourself as well as other players surrounded by tons of dangerous zombies (closed beta will be restricted to early SURV1V3 joiners).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are very satisfied of what we delivered so far, but we know we can do even better.

As of today, you can play:
- Story mode
*prologue chapter, with two missions introducing you to base game mechanics,
*1st story chapter, with 5 missions,
*2nd story chapter, with 5 missions,
- Trial mode
*the last garden, fight 15 zed hordes ,
*hell street, survive 10 minutes,
*big bird, use an helicopter to escape from Santa Carla

All missions/modes can be played in single or coop mode (up to 4 players) and provide at least 15 hours of amazing gameplay.

Check this thread for latest news on game development:

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

“As an Early Access supporter you will be rewarded for joining SURV1V3 in development phase and helping us improving it. We expect to raise price once more content is added and game gets more polished. Early Access purchasers will get upgraded to the release version for free.”

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

New release and Chapter 3 Sneak Peek 02

Hola survivors!

A new sneak peek from Nowhere...
We are proud to present the old, huge, fully explorable, damn scary, school!
Please comment!👍

For now some other tweaks and fixed bugs. Enjoy!

Release slide button
Controls have been changed to let players release the slide just using a button. To achieve that just:
- move thumbstick up and press (oculus)
- press touchpad up (vive)
- press touchpad right (wmr)

To toggle fire mode (single/burst), just do the same combination but once pressed, hold if for 0.6 secs or until you hear the "click" sound :gun_pistol:

Better AI
Old zeds AI was recognizing players footsteps as human even if they were using zombie stew and moving slowly.
With the new AI model, zeds won't be triggered by your footsteps while faking zed with zombie stew, just pay attention to not say anything on your mic (zeds don't speak).

Performance, performance, performance!
Some users with old, low-end hard disk were reporting some stuttering while moving around in Santa Carla.
We've reworked streaming algorithm in order to reduce CPU spikes, this should greatly help! Let us know! :inflammable_barrel:

Oculus Dashboard and ASW2.0
Game is now exporting geometry depth information enabling oculus dashboard overlay and ASW2.0.
Click here for more.

We're also releasing some reported bugs (thanks all for pointing them out!) :drill_picklock:
Check the full list below!


New features & tweaks:
- oculus: dash overlay support and ASW 2.0
- ai: when using zombie stew, player footsteps and moaning won't trigger zeds anymore
- inventory: moving tablet attachment position back in order to avoid involuntary grips
- performances: game stutters when loading/unloading levels on machines with a slow hdd
- gameplay: when player dies all the dropped ammo won't disappear immediately, all dropped weapons/ammo/aid sprays/zombie stews will despawn after 10 minutes
- controls: thumbstick/touchpad up (right on wmr) and press will release the slide, while thumbstick/touchpad up (right on wmr), press and keep pressed for 0.6 secs will change weapon fire mode

Fixed bugs:
- gameplay: objects can sometimes attach to player feet
- ai: clients can't be damaged by zeds if the host is far from them
- gameplay: shooting the zombie needed for selecting the game mode should start a mission, but sometimes it just does nothing
- sewers: getting on the very edge of the tube bridge, player can press the button on the platform making it move
- santa carla: in a safe house there's a gun in the top middle of the table that spawns but you can’t reach it
- santa carla: player can get into Hotel office through the window
- steam: pipe trap stat is not working
- controls: when playing with sitting position setting, after crouching player legs can sometimes overlap the ground
- zeds: in trials mode, zeds with helmets shouldn't fly when kneecapped
