SCUM is the next open-world multiplayer survival game brought to us by Gamepires using Unreal Engine 4. SCUM offers both first and third person views and is said to offer "unprecedented levels of character customization, control, and progression." claiming "Knowledge and skill are your ultimate weapons for long-term survival." Early access began on Steam in August of 2018 and the full game is expected to release in 2019. For a brief period, SCUM surpassed Fortnite on Twitch before it was even released, and sold 700,000 copies within its first week of early access. This very complex game offers something unique, remember the movie Gamer where prisoners were offered a second chance if they were to win a gruesome battle and complete Castle's level, or Deathrace where racers went up against the odds for a chance at freedom? Well, this is quite similar. In SCUM you're one of many prisoners taking on the odds for a better life and freedom. You're apart of a contest hosted by rich psychopaths and broadcasted to the nation over television, your goal is to survive a ruthless battle between prisoners to win over the viewing audience to be awarded fame, gifts, and perhaps even "life after death". You'll be training one of four attributes: strength, dexterity, constitution, and intelligence. Gameplay is based on collecting "fame points" which can be traded, used for items, and various customizations throughout the game. You'll begin in a Mediterranean inspired location alongside 63 other players, the goal is simple: survive. You'll be awarded additional fame points for surviving and making it out alive of dangerous situations. This violent game is sure to get the blood pumping while offering a very competitive atmosphere. There are no prison guards to keep you safe here, you best prepare yourself before you find yourself toothless.

Looks neat, I hope it does better than "Reign of Kings" has.

Long-term progression in survival game situations is an absolute mess to balance well, so I'm interested in seeing what system(s) SCUM plans to use for "progression" without destroying the ability for newer players to enter the game while and after the meta forms.
