Survarium Update 0.30 Preview

Discussion of the latest news and events related to Survarium.

17.07.2015, 17:54

Our anniversary update of Survarium, 0.30, is on its way! This update includes some long-awaited changes and a few experimental ideas. As usual players will be able to preview the update on our public test server which will be opening soon. Until then, you can read below about some of the most important changes.

The Last Stand Game Mode

One of the most interesting updates will be an experimental game mode. It’s going to be a deathmatch or “free for all” combat mode where the weaker fighters are eliminated from the fight early. The player with most points wins. For an added twist, when you kill a player you reduce his or her score. Also in this mode, the following apply:
- Playing while in a squad is not allowed.
- The size of awards and the possibility of ransacking a stash for loot depend on your battle performance.

Skill Tree Anomaly Branch

Anomalies and artifacts are important elements of gameplay in Survarium. We are pleased to announce that the skill tree related to anomalies and artifacts is ready and will be released in the 0.30 Update. These skills focus on reducing damage from anomalies, and also an increase of the efficiency of artifact use. Please note that in order to activate artifacts players will have to learn a special skill from the new skill tree.

New weapons and equipment

With Update 0.30 all factions in Survarium will get new equipment or weapons.

Scavengers will definitely rejoice at their heavy reinforcements. They’ll get two bull-pup assault rifles: OTs-14 (level 9) and VHS-2 (level 10), and last but not least - the legendary Barrett M82 sniper rifle (level 10).

A major resupply is being made available for the Black Market: SCAR-H assault rifle and FN Minimi light machine gun. Both items are available at the 10th level of equipment.

The soldiers of The Renaissance Army will now have two additional armor sets to choose from. The 3rd level of equipment - OZK-UV armor set with upgraded protection against anomalies. The 7th level - “sniper” armor set, designed specifically to offer both protection and mobility to snipers.

The Fringe Settlers will get the Veles armor set available at the 7th level of equipment. This armor set has no distinct advantages and disadvantages, so it is suitable for players who prefer to change their style of play during the fight.

New In-game Tutorial

While this change is targeted at new players, we hope that experienced fighters will also learn something new about the game. The changes affect not only the tutorial aspects of the game, we have completely reworked the beginning of the game to make immersion in the gameplay smoother, and also to give new players enough information to get started in Survarium.

Face Selection

For a long time Survarium characters have all been an army of identical clones! We are pleased to announce that thanks to Update 0.30 you will be able to change the face of your character, choosing from one of the options. This can be done when creating a new character or changing your character's name.

These aren't all the changes you will see in Survarium 0.30 Update. In the upcoming days we will tell you more about further innovations. A full list of changes will be published with the start of the player test server. Stay tuned!

What about people who already have a character? Do they have to rename to be able to change their face?

so one of the skills seems to provide +1 artifact container, but what if we already have 6 item slots, which ones will have priority? will we be limited to 5 items if we learn that skill?

Sounds good, but the face customisation is a waste of time, because most players use closed helmets or masks anyway. You should work on weapon modifications (scopes, sights, silencers, etc.) instead because that's what we want. If you don't nerf RGO and add mine detectors for 0.30 then it will be very disappointing.

Okay was hoping for weapon customization oO Exact the thing which I dont want is coming. You dont see yourself anyway ^^ And changing it by changing the name???? Seems logical to me aka we want more money from you.

To the gamemode: I like the idea sounds a little bit lika FFA for me? I know that gamemode from Combat Arms it is a really funny one and has a little bit Survival feeling aka "if youre not good youll die".

The equipment: Its okay but all is High Tier Stuff and if they dont change the grind Im not really motivated enough to grind for the weapons.

Overall I think this update isnt really big enough to call it "anniversary Survarium update 0.30". I really expected at least some parts of weapon customization. I think this is more important than face customization (I can be honest I find that feature totally senseless and a waste of time because nearly everyone wears a helmet or mask)

Pay to change name, in order to change appearance? Bah! I guess The Clone Wars will rage on and on, until the chosen one accepts The Dark Side of The Force...

I'm worried that the king of the hill match will be a total campfest. In a game where a single bullet can kill who is going to take a risk? Unless there is some way to force players into confrontation.

This update from preview seems... meh for me.

I am dissapointed about this new gamemode. I have waited S&D, Sabotage or Artifact Hunt, because these modes were shown on dev diary about PvP modes, but this new one was not. Why, VG?

So that people will spend gold on modifying and buying weapons to be the "best".

Maybe we should all vote on what mode we want next. So that VG can laugh at the results of the vote and add something completely different instead as always XD

OMG all those months for "face choosing" ? I could do the 4 version in one afternoon. Is that a joke ?

Very curious about new game mode though.

As usual most of the gear update is 100% useless, you guys should probably have gone to the beach and do nothing in the meantime instead of making effort on a set so that people making progress never ever use another set you made earlier effort to create while advanced player will barely/never ever use it.

It's a bit like London. Was probably quite some work but as I play it once every 8 games it could as well not be here.

I mean, all looks just nice. It's a bit sad to have all those effort actually making little output for the players. I suggest way (way) (way way) more face (with combinations. please), guns custom/unique/rare looks/features, map variations (like winter fortress etc.). Or you know... freeplay...
