So stalker2 was officially canned, I think we all saw that coming. What we didn't see coming was that there is going to be a new game from the same devs, call Survarium. They left GSC to form their own company Vostok Games. This is going to be something like a spritual successor to stalker series. Yes there is a lot of emotion that stalker is no more but maybe this game will be good, let's give it a fair chance to develop before knocking it. Things we know about the game so far. Planned release date end of 2013 Free to play MMOFPS Large open worlds new proprietary Vostok Engine technology Takes place in a post apocalyptic world, and is not tied to the small area of the Chernobyl zone There are anomalous activity and mutants Vostok Games Developer Diary 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Kl812VZv9VI Survarium is a free2play MMOFPS game set in the near future. The game focuses on a mass- scale ecological catastrophe on Earth, the reasons behind vaguely known. Impassable woods advance onto cities from every side, maddened animals and birds attack industrial complexes, military structures, warehouses and power plants. Towns are cut off from each other, there are no water supplies, no electricity, gas, communication is lost. Countries collapse, anarchy spreads throughout the world. Now force dictates who to survive. In the meantime, new species of greenery and animals purposely destroy human civilization. Strange plants and mushrooms grow through concrete and steel. Scientists all over the world haplessly try to cope with the anomaly sprawling across the Earth with terrifying speed. The game is developed with a new proprietary Vostok Engine technology and is planned for release on PC at the end of 2013.
