Financially, this is a really huge success for both Gamepires and Devolver Digital. However, the game right now is facing major server issues according to a lot of reports. As such, its current Steam reviews are Mixed.
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.
The game will be in development for at least one full year during Early Access and to complete all planned features and content. The Early Access version of SCUM will be playable with most features included on a basic/medium level of functionality. This means that players will be able to perform limited amount of actions or these actions will not be fully polished until game gets to final development phase. The players will be able to explore the island, build up their characters, engage other players, NPCs or wildlife and make simple alliances with their buddies. Also, Early Access will not include high level gameplay or any story-driven mission objectives.
