I can only speak for myself now. But S.T.A.L.K.E.R. will always be nr 1 in my book when it comes to post apocalyptic FPS games (yes, i liked it more than Fallout 3 for example).
So it was a really hard blow for me when i found out about the cancellation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 back in December 2011 (GSC Game World). Because i really, really wanted to play that game.
Sure, there´s of course expansions such as “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky” (2008 ) and “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat” (2010). And awesome mods such as “STALKER Complete 2012” and “S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Lost Alpha“.
But even so, it´s not quite “S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2“, if you know what i mean. But i got my hopes up when i heard about Vostok Games (their team is full of ex S.T.A.L.K.E.R. devs) FPS/MMO ecological catastrophe game “Survarium“.
Mainly because most of the people who worked on S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2, now works on “Survarium”.
But it´s been rather quite about “Survarium”. In fact, there has been no new videos since Gamescom 2014 last year (sep 2014). And “Survarium” is still a TBA title at this time.
And that makes me wonder what kind of faith awaits “Survarium”? Let´s just say that i hope that it´s not the same kind of faith that S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 experienced.
Because “Survarium” looks really great, so it would be a damn shame if the game would just get cancelled in the end.
So i really hope that Vostok Games will show us some new gameplay fotage from”Survarium” asap!
Survarium is an online massive multiplayer shooter with first-person view. The events take place in the near future in the aftermath of an ecological catastrophe, in a world where only one man out of a hundred survived, in a world where anarchy and chaos reign, where every step can kill you, where every hour you have to prove your right to live!
The game takes place on dedicated maps offering the survivors a variety of tactical options, secrets and valuable story-related information. Deadly traps await the unwary players among you. It is time to adapt to the conditions of a new world and to survive!
