SCUM - a better DayZ/EXILE experience?

happened across this, anyone been keeping an eye on it? It looks a lot like DayZ in the videos, with similar survival mechanics (temperature, how wet your gear is etc), but with skills and player development. The idea is you’re remote controlling prisoners in some max security prison environment, and he talks about having game modes that’ll last both half an hour, or hundreds of hours, with 64+ players on a server.


The longer Q&A after the description of how wetness works is good and gives you a good idea of where they’re coming from, their thoughts on TPP vs FPP, cheating, gamemodes; i’m excusing his pronunciation of peripheral (periphiel).

ooo Devolver Digital & Croteam… those guys will introduce some wierd shit into this genre…

the detail they’ve got in their spotting/camo/awareness systems, and the holding your breath while shooting.

“we’ve included a simple zeroing system to callibrate your scope, but we can put in a fully realistic one if that’s what you want”…

Think I remember looking at this a few months ago and it seemed interesting. Is it full release yet?

Saw they had a very nice vaulting system, where the weight of your character and the items they carried would affect the way you moved, definitely seems interesting!

Anyone going for this? Early access has been released today I believe

Been watching a few Vida today. Looks entertaining but I don’t want to to another early access and not play it.

I’m liking the look of it, going to keep an eye on it as it seems the netcode is on the poor side so once they fix it I may pick it up

Checked out the vids of this, looks very promising so will invest my £14 in this dirty little bugger :slight_smile:

Played it yet @MadMan ?

I have had to stop myself a many times from hitting the buy button. I’m really liking the look of it, even with the bugs.

Bought…installed…haven’t played a PC in over a week…but will hopefully get some time this week :frowning:
Weekend was ‘Decking’…and no Hammy thats not spinning the Wheels of Steel but getting splinters lol

I’m the same, but got God of War there so hoping it will keep me away from it for a while longer.

Let me know, might get it end of the month now. It does look interesting

played it briefly, but it feels like a nice blend of DayZ/Exile/Epoch (specifically searching static items for loot), with a much broader crafting system (similar to ARK). Looks and feels a lot like other current UE games (ARK and PUBG specifically).

Fuck I love that game!
