Fear The Wolves enters early access, taking battle royale to Chernobyl

For stags and hens who want their last free nights more dangerous than a stay at Paradise Resort, Vostok Games today launched battle royale 'em up Fear The Wolves into early access. It follows the basic recipe of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds but takes stags and hens to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with added radiation, anomalies, hungry mutated wolves, and a whole load of jank. Vostok's claim…

Fear The Wolves slinks away with last-minute delay

Your stag & hen weekend tour of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone will have to wait, as Fear The Wolves isn't ready yet. The battle royale FPS from Survarium devs (and virtuaChernobyl veterans) Vostok Games was due to launch today but Vostok and publishers Focus Home Interactive announced only last night that the game needs more time. Sounds like testers have grumbled about too many technical…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.Y. battle royale Fear The Wolves hits early access July 18th

Battle royale FPS Fear The Wolves is the latest game to adopt the aesthetic and modern mythology of the nuclear-ravaged city of Chernobyl. In this case, using it as the backdrop for last man standing multiplayer fun. Developed by Vostok Games (a team including some ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folk, though their previous free-to-play FPS Survarium is a bit wonky), Fear The Wolves adds roaming packs of mutant animals…

Fear The Wolves is battle royale in irradiated Chernobyl

Take one hundred players fighting to the death in that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds way, throw them into the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-esque irradiated and anomaly-ridden ruins of Chernobyl, and you might have a game like the newly-announced Fear The Wolves. This latest game to hop on the hot Battle Royale trend is coming from Vostok Games, the studio founded by some former members of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developers GSC Game World.…

Stalkerish: Survarium adds first PvE mission

The most exciting part of Survarium [official site] has always been the dream that it might one day become essentially an unofficial S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sequel. Survarium studio Vostok Games was founded by folks who formerly worked on the celebrated open-world FPS-RPG series, Survarium is set in a very similar irradiated world of artifact hunters, and Vostok have gabbed about wanting a peristent world to stalk. Survarium…

Get A Free Premium Account And 10,000 In-Game Cash For The Stalker-Inspired Online Shooter Survarium

Survarium [official site] is a free-to-play online shooter that walks in the foosteps of Stalker. Its skies are gloomy and overcast, its levels are set among industrial decay, and its survivors fight with rusting and makeshift weaponry. The game has been rumbling through Early Access for some time and we quite like it. In case you like it too, we're giving away 3000 codes for…

Premature Evaluation: Survarium

Each week, Marsh Davies stalks through the reality-warping anomaly of Early Access and comes back with any stories he can find and/or gets turned inside out by a pocket of non-euclidean space. This week’s precious artifact is free-to-play online shooter Survarium, in which the remnants of humanity tussle over abandoned radar stations and chemical plants, long reclaimed by nature (and other, less natural phenomena). It’s…

Happy S.T.A.L.K.I.N.G.: Survarium Freeplay Mode Plans

Gosh-o! After several years of nodding politely and say "Yes that's nice but..." to news about the deathmatch-y side of Survarium [official site], developers Vostok Games are starting to share firm plans for the post-apocalyptic FPS's open-world Freeplay mode. As we've hoped from the studio founded by former S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developers, it's sounding pretty S.T.A.L.K.Y. as players roam across wasteland, scavenging for weapons and supplies, completing…

I Said Come In! Survarium Open Beta Expands

GSC Game World announcing a comeback was a nice treat for the end of 2014, but even if they were working on another S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (they haven't said they are, and I suspect they're not) it'd be ages before we got to play it. Perhaps the closest we'll get any time soon is Survarium, a free-to-play FPS made by a studio formed by folks who banded…

Survarium Beta Keys: Try The Stalker-ish Multiplayer Shooter

Update: And they're all gone. Back in March, Jim reckoned that the beta of Survarium was a strong start for the free-to-play multiplayer shooter. But what does he know? You want to try the game for yourself, to see how far its Stalker influences go and whether its a rusting wasteland worth dying within. Now 1000 of you can, using the first-come, first-served beta keys…

Survarium Entering Open Beta… For One Day

Do you want post-apocalyptic Russian survival shooting to fill the irradiated void left behind by STALKER 2's cancellation? Well, the handsomely molded ashes of GSC Game World, aka Vostok Games, have something in store for you, even if it doesn't exactly play like STALKER just yet. Survarium is currently in closed beta, but it's going fully, completely open for, er, 24 hours this Friday. After that…

Feature: Stalk To Me

Hands On: Survarium

The first part of Vostok's grand post-apocalyptic shooter plan, Survarium, has now started inviting batches of sign ups to their beta. It's the multiplayer FPS portion of the game, and as such basically a test of the shooting, running about, and weapon unlocking game systems. It's an experience that will be familiar to anyone who spent time playing first-person games online in the past decade,…

Survarium Getting New Areas, Quests, Anomalies ‘Soon’

I imagine that it'd feel terribly awkward to be Survarium. Yes, there are the obvious reasons - having such a silly nametag chained to your chest can't be fun; also, existing as the first sentient videogame or whatever - but imagine all the guilt. Survarium isn't STALKER 2 and it never will be, but longtime fans can't let go that easily. Survarium-You would walk into rooms,…

Zoned Out: Eyes On With Survarium

Last week I finally got a chance to meet two heroes of the Stalker years, Joe Mullin and Oleg Yavorsky, who are now working hard as Vostok on the free-to-play shooter, Survarium. There's an immediate tension when you mention the F word, and I think the legacy that resides in Survarium means that Vostok have to go that extra mile to prove themselves. Good looking…

Zoning Out: Vostok On Survarium Alpha Progress

Of all the spin off studios that materialised after the disintegration of STALKER 2, it was Vostok who remained most faithful to the vision. This time, though, they're taking quite a different angle. Survarium will be a journey into a zone of alienation with other people along for the ride. It will be co-operative and competitive and very bleak indeed. I spoke to Oleg Yavorsky…

A Stalk In The Park: Survarium’s Big Map, Plantiest Faction

If various apocalyptic games, books, and movies have taught me anything, it's that you always side with the trees. Humans? Nah, they're old hat. On the way out. This is largely evidenced by the fact that they always find some way to bomb, globally warm, or pandemic themselves to the brink of extinction. That's not exactly the stuff of a winning team. Trees, though, they…

Stalk This Way: Survarium Alpha

The first players invited to Survarium's alpha have been playing for a while now but a tweet from the team suggests that they are almost ready to open the gateway to their apocalyptic doomscapes, in which it is currently possible to engage in a team-based PVP mode. If you'd like to shoot people in the remnants of civilisation, or would just like to see how…

Survarium Enters Alpha, Will Expand Over Time

To this very day, I continue to be followed around by a gray little rain cloud that weeps heaving droplets over STALKER 2's demise. I have named it Probably Clinical Depression - after my great grandfather, of course. But one can only linger on the past for so long. I know this. I am a mature adult with grownup feelings, coping mechanisms, and tastes in…

Feature: Vostok Interview

Surviving The Future: Vostok Talk Survarium

When GSC collapsed and seemed to take STALKER 2 with it, there was immediately a ray of light: Vostok, a team consisting of a large section of the original Stalker development team, now making their own game, Survarium. While the art style and atmosphere look astonishingly similar to that classic open-world shooter, what we're looking at here is a free-to-play MMOFPS. Quite a different proposition…
