Survarium Update 0.50 Preview

Discussion of the latest news and events related to Survarium.

02.10.2017, 15:54

After the release of update 0.47 and a new training mission for beginners, our team set a goal to give players the opportunity to complete a full-fledged CO-OP gaming mission. And although we are still in the first stages of PvE (CO-OP) development, over the past two months we managed to achieve significant progress in developing what is fundamentally a different game experience for players. Therefore, we decided that the next update of the game will be a version 0.50, in the center of which is the first PvE (CO-OP) story mission.

The first mission is called "Dangerous Knowledge" - It will centre around the revelry between the Black Market and Renaissance Army factions and will also raise the curtain revealing the top secret scientific experiments that led to the advent of the Forest.

Here's what will be included in Update 0.50

Exclusively for this new PvE (CO-OP) mission, we created a new map with a large number of both open and closed spaces.

The task we set for ourselves was to bring into the game an element of exploration and interaction between characters and the game world.

To complete the mission, you will need a squad of three people: you can invite your friends, or use matchmaking to join with random players. The mission can be accessed at any of five levels of equipment and has three difficulty levels.

Playing the team mission, not only you’ll become acquainted with the story line, but also will be able to find special caches with rewards given to the squad at the end of the mission if you are victorious.

Now a few words about gaining access to the mission. To enter, you will need a special badge token. After the release of the update, you will get the initial stock of tokens. Later, your tokens will be replenished to the maximum of two on everyday login.

To pass the mission, you must complete a series of tasks. It is enough for at least one of the three players to reach a check point: in this case, the remaining members of the unit are respawned and can continue to play. If all three player players are killed, the mission is lost. Remember that the time for the mission completion is limited.

What we plan to implement in the future

- Continue to improve CO-OP mechanics;
- Improved AI and NPCs;
- Additional challenges with increased difficulty and unique rewards.

That's all for today. Soon you will be able to try the first PvE (CO-OP) mission in Survarium. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions!

What concerns me more is the time limit...
I hope they don't set it to something ridiculously low, like 15 minutes.

Hi Joe.
I have a Q. Is there a risk of team killing, and if so, I assume the same report method with support. Will players who *have* been team killed by jerks get a new/returned game token?

Maybe at a later stage. Right now we are too busy with just launching the En, RU and UA languages.

You have two Tokens per day, for every day you login to the game. If you wish to get more, you can purchase for gold.

I hate to say this, but if I don't say I'll regret it...
Token system, or say, Ticket-to-play style gaming has been a failure in my country.
At least, game has to be something ready to play whenever one wants to play, and such limitation slows the whole community. Unless the game community gets some kind of drawback of always-ready-to-play style, there should not be limitation. And 2 plays in a day, that's too few if the mission can be played within 1 hour or so. My average playtime (excluding chit-chat, of course!) varies but from 15 min (when I'm exhausted and feel it's not gaming day) to 4 hours. It's all about Survarium, and if I include S.T.A.L.K.E.R. CoC, PUBG, and more... my playtime sums up to 10 hours (on holiday). It'll be still okay if the token can be replenished in a way like "few PvP matches/wins" or so. But only 2 games/day won't be enough for game-geeks.
It hasn't started yet, but I expect that may be a problem. I'll be keen on the game for a while...

Anyway, the long-awaited PvE comes up soon, thank you devs.

Is it decided that there will or won't be a closed testing of this mission by Supertesters?
Is there a high chance that 0.50 will come live till the end of this month?

Tokens? So ,we can play twice a day...

Time limit? 60min probably enough, but....

Difficulty is determined by tier level or something else?

Matchmaking? How does it work? Can a tier 2 player play with a tier 3 player without penalties to both of the players?

How about "match" cost, and rewards? Do we have to pay the "normal" match cost?
What we get: what we loot and/or endscreen looting? Both?
Does killing count to modules for weapons? (my bet: no)
What if we are wiped out? (cost/reward)

I don't wanna be nitpicky or something, but we get very little information!

Okay that is excellent news. Thank you.

Oh one more question. The match finding will only pair human players with 2 humans players. No AI team mates?
