Survarium is a free-to-play online first-person shooter with role-playing and survival elements developed by Vostok Games through a venture capital following the purported cancellation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and closure of GSC Game World in December 2011. Although Survarium is external to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, the developers intend to include comparable features, notably the anomalies and artifacts that reference the Russian science-fiction novel Roadside Picnic, and the ‘ecological catastrophe’ that renders much of the environment uninhabitable for humans.

In March 2012, former employees from GSC Game World founded Vostok Games with capital from Vostok Ventures Ltd, and announced subsequently the development of Survarium on 25 April 2012.
On 13 May 2013, the alpha test started in Russian-speaking territories. The alpha launched internationally a few weeks later.
The closed beta testing is currently in progress for the PvP mode although it does not even have 50% of the planned content implemented. Every minute, a user on the official Survarium website is chosen to participate in the beta test.
At this point in development and for the foreseeable future, Survarium is not an MMOFPS despite Vostok Games listing it as such on the game’s website. According to Vostok Games their “ultimate goal is to eventually combine the entire world of Survarium into one massive game world” but no mention has been made of increasing the number of players allowed to interact simultaneously in the game world to achieve the status of being a true MMOFPS.
Survarium is a post-apocalyptic online FPS game. If you are looking for a shooter where skills matter, look no further! The opposing players and deadly anomalies will never stop you on the way to victory, right?
