Good Survival Horror Game, shows a lot of promise in the future

The game is similar to Day Z, but instead of zombies, you have monsters all around you in a post-apocalyptic world that's in ruins.

The map is very large, and going to expand in the future. The game can get very intense and scary especially if you're alone and its night time in the game when a lot of the creatures show up. There's 8 different monsters right now, some crawlers, golems are massive monsters, watchers are monsters on rooftops looking around with a red infrared vision for survivors. If you get close to any creature, they will be chasing you down, and its hard to lose them. I think weapons can be bought, I've only been finding gun parts and crafting them, and are scarce. I've seen servers for up to 64 players. Most of the time when I meet another player, I trust them, and follow them because they drop some supplies, and I usually get ambushed by his friends and killed so they can rob my supplies. Its hard to trust anybody in the game, and I've seen speed hackers as well. The safe-zone part of the map is free from violence and allows you to trade and meet other people but I've noticed that when you leave the safe-zone, there's people waiting for you to ambush and kill you so be careful. You can add friends on your social list so you can see there location on your map to meet them. The graphics are great, I just noticed some bugs and buggy monster AI that gets stuck in corners and walls.

If you like survival horror games, you should give this game a try, updates are being added.

Could be one of the greats

Graphics are very well done. Movement and controls (K&M) seem well so far, although controller support would be nice. Dying truly means something since you lose all you have gained. There seems to be complaints how the PvP aspect is nothing more than campers destroying you as soon as you spawn. I have yet to see this.

This game could really turn into something great. Hopefully the developers continuously update and fix anything that needs fixing. I hope to play this for awhile.
