Gamepires and Devolver Digital have released their massively-anticipated hardcore survival game SCUM onto Steam Early Access at an introductory $19.99 price. Dedicated supporters can also purchase the SCUM Supporter’s Pack with exclusive in-game items including a handsome skull face tattoo, replica dev team shirt, and a blue bio control unit so people know you spent more when they are looting your lifeless corpse.
SCUM aims to evolve the multiplayer open world survival game with unprecedented levels of character customization, control and progression, where knowledge and skills are the ultimate weapons for long-term survival. Combining the methodical planning and management of hardcore survival with optional PvP ‘network events’ available to everyone at any time, SCUM strikes a unique balance between complex simulation and intense action in the next generation of survival game.
The game is available now on Steam Early Access where Gamepires will spend the next year adding in advanced features, refining current systems, and expanding the meta-narrative that will lead the most skilled players to an end game with a way off the island. For all the Australian readers, the developers have also confirmed there are local ANZ servers.
