Devolver Digital and Gamepires have announced that their upcoming open-world survival game, SCUM, will come to Steam Early Access in August 2018. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publisher released some new screenshots and a trailer that you can find below.
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.
Players will balance base level needs with knowledge-based skills to manage everything from nourishment, metabolic rate, and body mass to weapons proficiency, combat style, and security systems hacking. Players will also be able to dominate the island with their skills, cunning, and strategies to achieve higher levels of game and receive powerful gifts from corporate sponsors. And if they die, they will get resurrected with their valuable skills intact.
In SCUM, characters will be affected by the rain and the sea/pool water. SCUM promises to feature some of the most advanced systems we’ve ever seen as players can catch a cold if they stay in the rain. Furthermore, cloths can get heavier and different cloths will absorb different levels of water.
