New Survarium gamedesigner, Unreal Engine 4...

It’s always good to sit around the campfire and chat about your day, missions and experiences.

As some of you perhaps noticed, Survarium has new project leader and gamedesigner - Maxim Petkov (Максим Петков, Shingan).
There are also rumors about VG looking for a developers with Unreal Engine 4 knowledge.

Yes, this has been discussed at length in the topic here:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=12993

Also scraps of information about UE4 and the whereabouts of the previous Lead, Ruslan here:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=12993&p=279812#p279812

These are interesting times, no?

Friepley confirmed?


Anyways, we know that they have started a second project, but they are under NDA.

Given earlier talkabout them not being certain whether Freeplay would be a seperate game or part of the Survarium base game, I think this issue has now been resolved.

I would think they would just port the existing files from the Vostok engine to the UE4, so that would mean that is would be similar to survarium.
If they wouldn't port it, that would be not very smart, that would basically be multiple years thrown in the trash

If moving from Vostok->Unreal can be done efficently, it would take whole upkeeping engine-burden away from VG.
That would free recources to development, so I just hope it can be done without too much blood & tears.

Real info is that VG is looking also for render programmer to upgrade existing graphic part of the game engine, so Unreal Engine developers may be needed for new project only.

It was the controversial interview in which the VG PR representative said that: http://www.mmorpg.com/survarium/intervi ... 1000010724

"AK: In spite of the fact that PvP-mode is almost 80% complete, we are planning to continue improving it, add innovations and more. In parallel, we plan to develop the PvE component of Survarium within the existing game. Potentially, we are considering various options going as far as launching the PvE-mode as a separate game if PvP and PvE communities and gameplay turn out too different to co-exist. But at this point it’s a completely open question."

But I have simple questions:
Assuming this UE4 is only the base, or it is the final engine whole game will be running on?
If yes, will be survarium be moved to UE4 as well?
If no, this new project will be moved to Survarium's engine as well?
PS: Yes, I know. Too much details for now.

Well that render programmer is yet again another part which is true, they are looking for one, but it also brings even more rumors...
We don't know if they need one to improve Survarium graphics, or graphics of the other project, and what's the reason they actually need one; fired the old one/old one left or just need a bigger team. And another thing is why are they recruiting lots of new people right now; did they get a new sponsor, did they lose a lot of old staff etc etc etc

The main rumor here is of course this thing about the other project being Freeplay made on Unreal engine, and the root of this is one interview 10 months ago, where they said they are considering various options, Freeplay as a ~different game being one of them...
I mean, it's quite far fetched..


But some more facts, they already have one Unreal engine developer (I'm not sure if they're looking for another one), and they're looking for not only a render programmer, but also a concept artist.

I have mixed emotions, first its joy. Its a good news that probably Vostok bring the Unreal Engine but for the other hand i dont like the idea of standalone, i think the PvP and the PvE can co-exist, but if the standalone has the spirit of both games Survarium and STALKER its gonna be awesome
