Survarium Graphics Upgrade

The Survarium Forums announce the release of a new patch for Survarium, updating the survival shooter to version 0.52. Among the changes this provides is a new graphics renderer, which offers a more up-to-date look as well as performance improvements for a win-win. Here's a video showing off the game's new look, and here are some details from the announcement, including word on a special event which is now underway:

The development of a new graphics renderer took the Survarium team several years to deliver. The main goal was to improve the graphics in the game and make it more up-to-date with current technology while still improving the game’s overall performance on most systems.

All the lighting has been drastically changed on the game locations, while the various materials have now obtained the correct parameters of light reflection and absorption.

On top of that, materials for the entire weapon range have been reworked. Metal now truly looks and reflects light as metal should, while the varinished wooden surfaces got their deserved gloss.
Nevertheless, as of today, the new graphics renderer does not contain all the functionality we would like it to have, so work to keep improving the renderer will continue and features included in future updates.

On top of the graphics changes, a new Springtime in-game event has started. A special game map was created and a new and exciting game mode are now available to all players.
Somewhere deep in the forest is a derelict base long occupied by a faction of survivors. Once on a spring day the base was attacked by a group of five unknown combatants. Their goal was to deliver a strange artifact to one of the two designated zones available, while having sabotaged the actions of the defending force. If the attackers succeed - they win the round. Otherwise - victory goes to the team of the defenders. Having played three rounds, the attackers and defenders are switched. The ultimate victory in match is granted to the first team to reach a score of five.
