The most recent content update for the ongoing Beta of free-to-play FPS Survarium isn't dramatic, but marks another step towards a stable full release of the PvP modes. Version 0.27a adds the new game mode 'Research', a couple of new weapons and UI changes. It also comes with a change of calculating experience, reputation and most notably 'bleeding mechanics'.
The update addresses also a lot of weapon balancing issues and adds more ways to obtain in-game rewards. Furthermore the mechanics of ammunition have been changed.
A full list of changes and new add-ons have been released at the official forum.
Survarium is set in a near-future, post-apocalyptic Earth, which has been struck by an ecological catastrophe, leaving few survivors who struggle in their fight for limited resources. As there is no government, the survivors band together in four factions, the Scavengers, Black Market, The Renaissance Army and The Fringe Settlers. The factions pursue a different style of living, have different clothes, weapons and equipment and distinctive special abilities. Players can choose to play one of three game modes. While the PvE and the Coop mode are in development, Vostok Games conducted extended Beta testing for the PvP modes, which entered into Open Beta status in Russia in summer 2014.
