Nether - Chosen
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Nether is a fast-paced survival game that forces you to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as 'Nethers'. These creatures and the other players are real challenges to overcome, requiring tactical gameplay, awareness, stealth, and cooperation. To navigate this high-tension environment, you must use skill and cunning in order to scavenge, trade, craft or loot for food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to stay alive in a desolate and dangerous city. Team up with other survivors and take advantage of group play, as a tribe, to complete treacherous world objectives, or play as a lone wolf in an attempt to endure the hostile environment. In the end you must decide whether to Prey or Pray
The game's landscape is a beautifully conceived vision of a post apocalyptic Chicago, ravaged by disaster and time. Almost every low and high-rise building can be individually explored in a cityscape that stretches 150 blocks. Beyond the city lies the Wastelands, an unforgiving desolate landscape that is slowly sinking into the earth.
SURVIVE, CRAFT, TRADE, LOOT AND SHOOT
Start off, armed only with a kitchen knife and scavenge your way through an environment on a daily battle to stay alive. Beware the Nether, poor mutated souls who roam the city in search of human flesh. Scavenge for food and water to stay nourished, and search for useful items that could be crafted into makeshift weapons to help in your battle for life. Hunt and kill Nether to trade their body parts to the mysterious Cult located in the few markets that scatter the city. Over time, build up your skills and earn rewards for surviving each precious new day. But always beware of the other survivors who may be only one moment away from death, and see killing you and looting your possessions as their only salvation.
TRIBES AND TERRITORY WARS
Find safety in numbers by joining a tribe. Only tribes can capture and own territory, and the urban landscape is the perfect setting for turf domination. Compete with rival tribes in territory wars for control of the city by capturing strategic landmarks to reap resources and experience; prove your dominance over all other tribes. Spy on rival tribes or infiltrate and kill them by playing as a Nether. Ambush them from above by swooping in for the kill using the wing suit. Tribes change the survival experience by establishing a true social construct, with all the consequences of behavior that you would expect in the real world. Your actions have real repercussions enforced organically through reputation and standing.
PLAYER AND GROUP MISSIONS
Players can complete an assortment of individual or group missions to earn money, experience and reputation. Perform vital supply runs between the markets, work with your tribe to take down the swarms of Nether lead by the vicious boss Reaper that sporadically surge to attack neighborhoods, or keep the creatures out of the Safezones by working in groups to repair the anti-nether devices when they fail.
Nether offers a wide variety of character customization and allows you to play as a male or female character. There is a huge selection of cosmetic items and player taunts to assert your individuality along with entire outfits to play roles like survivalist, soldier and biker - or even just play in your underwear.

A good survival gamepatacon | June 28, 2014 | See all patacon's reviews »
This is the first online game open world survival to that game and loved it, the difficulty is very high, which I LOVE, this is the kind of games that one second to another becomes a horror game, play with friends it is most of this game. These are good things, now let the bad: Very poorly optimized: a computer medium low end this game will not work. High Price: The truth suggests 2 times whether to buy or not buy the game, you got to be very sure to buy it, even so, I recommend it. Thinking about all this (and much the price influences) my note would normally be 7/10 but as this pack brings a steam key, my note is 8/10

I got this game before the April patch and it was a bad game to play. But now after the patch it is a very great game to play. It has some great graphics and easy to learn controls. This isn't a dayz clone, it improves on that in many ways. First of all it has enemies to fight throughout the game not just sporadically. Secondly, there is a level up system that helps you with the game play, like increased health or better gun aiming. A major difference is the addition of safe-zones where you can trade gun parts you find, buy from the global market and even trade in the body party of fallen enemies for guns and useful tools. But don't think you can stay in the safe zone forever, it would get attacked by nethers once in a while and you would have to evacuate. The map in which the game is played is huge and it is just getting bigger. I would recommend this game to anyone.
