Survarium MMO survival shooter now accepting alpha tester applications

Free-to-play MMOFPS Survarium is in need of alpha testers, according to a post on developer Vostok Games' website.

Applications to test Vostok's survival shooter, touted as the spiritual successor to failed title STALKER 2, are available through the Survarium page. Vostok is hoping to find and remove any bugs as well as identify areas needing more polish through testing. The developer notes that applying does not guarantee a spot in the alpha, and invites will be sent out to selected individuals at a later date.

"We will be choosing the candidates who best fit to the needs of each specific game testing stage," reads the post. "We are going to pick users of various gaming styles and experience — from hardcore users to casual players, and on top of that we are going to test the game on a variety of hardware specs."

Vostok has asked for "accurate data" regarding applicants and the hardware they are using, calling the alpha test "hard work, rather than entertainment." Selected participants will be given an optimized version of the current Survarium client.

The developer plans to increase it's "army" of testers in the future, and encourages all applicants who are not selected for this testing round to try again in the future.

Survarium incorporates both role-playing and survival elements, as well as some elements similar to FPS survival-horror series STALKER. The game is slated for release later this year.
