Cloned Zone: Survarium Footage

By Craig Pearson on October 4th, 2013.

Pretty. So very pretty.
My conflict-o-tron is clicking like that time I discovered a ‘free kitten, smoosh child’ lever. I could have had a free kitten, but then there’s that child. Not even imagining the cutest kittens and the worst children could get me to pull it. Believe me, I tried. Survarium has me in that same sort of headspace: a game from a lot of the Stalker devs set in a zone of alienation! Hooray! But it’ll start out as a free-to-play shooter.

Stalker 2 Dead (Again), But Now There’s Survarium

By Jim Rossignol on April 25th, 2012.


The GSC veterans have sent word that they are forming a new studio, Vostock Games, and will be making a game called Survarium, which is apparently a Stalker-like MMOFPS. Stalker 2 itself is “frozen” and the team will be focusing on the new game. They have tweeted: “All those asking about funding etc. That is not the issue. We were unable to secure the IP rights to continue with the Stalker franchise.” There will be a Q&A session with Oleg Yavorsky and Joe Willburn tomorrow on Twitter to explain the Survarium project in detail.

The new studio have also circulated a video about their plans, which you can see below.
