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 playable in single or coop mode (up to 3 players),
*2nd story chapter, with 3 missions (out of 5) playable in single or coop mode
- Trial mode
*the last garden, fight 15 zed hordes in single or coop mode
*hell street, survive 10 minutes in single or coop mode
*big bird, use an helicopter to escape from Santa Carla in single or coop mode

providing at least 10 hours of amazing gameplay.

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?

Pump Shotgun, Shovels and Spanish localization

Hey Survivors!

This is another quality release!
We're releasing more than 25 bug fixes and tweaks.
On top of this, we're proud to announce that the pump shotgun is finally here!
This is one of the most requested feature since early access release... hope you'll like it!

Pump shotgun
Shotguns have always been part of the zombie killing / survival games... this is definitely true.
Supernova tactical shotgun is going to be one of the most amusing, satisfying and powerful weapons available in SURV1V3 :gun_pistol: ENJOY!

Spanish localization
Spanish localization for subtitles, tablet and options menu is completed!
Thanks to Souls Alive for his quick job! :inflammable_barrel:
(if you have any feedback on localized content, just drop us a line!)

Hit Direction Markers
You got killed by a crawling zombie because it wasn't clear from where you got hit until it was too late? We added a thin marker that should help you! :gas_jerrycan:

Just grab a shovel around and get smashing some brains! Ready?

Map Key
A map legend is now included, accessible directly from your tablet (click help, between back and zoom buttons). It will give you basic information needed for the map to make sense.

We're also releasing a number of bug fixes that should solve all reported problems (characters collisions, gun fire effects, crashes, ...). :drill_picklock:
Check full list below!


New features & tweaks:
- weapons: new supernova tactical shotgun
- melee weapons: shovel should be a melee weapon
- localization: spanish localization

- tablet: renaming "help" section in "extra" and adding collectibles section (to show unlocked ones)

- gameplay: cloth material shouldn't stop bullets
- subtitles: fixed some typos and completed some missing translations
- options menu: very small unreadable text on some options descriptions
- weapons: pressing both eject mag and remove attachment buttons at the same time makes the gun bug out
- graphics: fix some objects collisions and grip points
- Santa Carla: some doors don't close
- Hell Street: players can enter a garden going out of map
- main menu map: you can get your player stuck in the boxes
- characters: collisions on some characters are not completely aligned (resulting in false bullet hits)
- weapons: fire effect is not aligned with gun/rifle muzzle
- graphics: camera blood fade effect freaks out when player is hit many times in a short amount of time
- core: rare crashes
- steam: steam stats can be messed up
- multiplayer: splash map shouldn't be listed as an available session while searching for a multiplayer session
- gameplay: falling in the water should kill player
