Survarium Releases European Open Beta!

Vostok Games recently released the European Open Beta of Survarium. Join in the fun and S.T.A.L.K.E.R-realm fun! 


"Currently the Survarium Open-Beta contains two variations of PVP mode: Team Deathmatch and Battery Retrieval.

The game is available in Russian, Ukrainian, English, German and Polish. In the near future we plan to localize the game into other European languages. We’d also like to note that the transition of the game to the stage of Open-Beta in Europe does not mean the end of project development; on the contrary, we plan to further develop Survarium and introduce lots of new features, including the long-awaited FreePlay (PvE) mode."

im not sure if i want to play survarium, i am a big fan of stalker series and finished each game many times

Vostok games is made up of a bunch of the core devs from GSC Gameworlds that left after STALKER 2 was canceled and GSC went belly up. It is a great game so far. It is free to play and definately NOT pay2win.

i know that, and by watching the trailer the textures look just like the ones i stalker, i'm just not sure if survarium has the same feel as stalker, at least until the add pve mode

True, right now it is more TDM and object based fighting like CTF but with more than one flag (batteries in this case). The gameplay is quite fun and you can create clans too.

i will probably give it a try sometime this week

Yes YES YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Feed me my new stalker game! I can't wait for PVE mode. 

I'm really excited for this technically it isn't Stalker 2 but It's the closest thing we'll get to it so I'm hyped for it in general. Just this time they better have a god damn 7.62x39 AK because Call of Pripyat not having that made no sense. 

they do. If I remember correctly, they have 2. Plus, the Mosin Nagant in here is ballin!!. Ive been sniped so much with that rifle and the iron sights. 

I finished downloading it and will play it in a couple of hours

So i have played suravrium and its really fun.  The pvp feels just like mp from stalker, i also really like their level design.  The graphics aren't really good, but it is beta so they might get better. Frame rate is steady and there's no lag.  After playing it for a couple of hours the game only crashed once. If they keep the game relatively the same, it should be one of the best f2p fps games
