For the lack of an actual name of this subgenre, I just made that one up.
DayZ opened up the floodgates and the first thing to get flushed out was unfortunately a turd. But never mind that now. What else will flow towards us? What do you hope to see from these games?
I'mma use this opportunity to pimp Survarium
. Would be the biggest blip on my radar in terms of these types of games. Specifics are still pretty vague, but they seem to have nailed down something solid. Have faith in this cause it's Eastern Bloc and there's a bunch of former Stalker developers on the team. My only concern so far is that it's F2P, and how that may affect the design.
The main thing about it is it will have three different modes which sound like they'll offer wildly different experiences.
One is basically objectivebased team deathmatch. Could be relatively multifaceted.
One is storybased co-op.
And the final one is Freeplay, which would be the DayZ-ish one. Get the impression it'll end up being quite different despite all the apparent similarities. For one there is an end goal. Already has 100% more structure.https://www.youtube.com/user/vostokgames
