While the standalone version of DayZ is still far from leaving early access even after two years and is increasingly losing fans, the hype surrounding the survival genre as well has eased somewhat overall. Although titles such as Rust or ARK: Survival Evolved are still doing well, the huge (and persistent) successes in the increasingly dense thicket of the survival are becoming harder to find. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, other developers are sensing their big chance. These include the bankroll studios, which have now started with their title Hurtworld download in the early access and have already caused quite a stir there.
The direct competitor is probably Rust, with whom it has a lot in common. You awake alone and completely naked on the edge of the extensive game world and have to think for yourself how to survive in the world and what you want to achieve. In the beginning, as usual, you look for simple materials such as twigs, wood and stones, from which you then make simple tools. This can in turn kill larger animals, get better materials and thus ultimately create more complex things. At some point in this way you have finally built up a first habitation and equipped you with weapons and machines. While you are looking for resources and building your own home, you also have to make sure that no other player gets in your way, because many players have little pity in the fight for survival. Collecting, building and fighting this circuit is familiar from Minecraft as well as all the other Sandbox Survival games and Hurtworld does not dare to do any big experiments at this point.
Also, the developers are still making no great attempts to stand out from the crowd in a playful way, but that may well change in the future, and in early access, it is also important to first create a good base. Hurtworld has also succeeded in doing that, because at its core, most things already work pretty well. Granted, the interface or the menu are still very much like placeholders, but the depletion of resources is quite well implemented and therefore there is also a small sense of satisfaction, if you like trees, for example.
Thanks to various animals, the game world also does not feel as empty and lifeless as it is the case with many other early access titles of this kind. Many objects, materials and different landscapes also have a lot to do. In addition, the game is relatively clear, so you know much faster, what you can do and what you should do necessarily. Many Sandbox and Survival games have the problem of overloading the player with features and functionality and not integrating them into the game clearly enough. Hurtworld, however, is usually quite accessible, as it is probably only Rust.
Up to now, only the graphics by Hurtworld are outstanding, reminiscent of titles such as Team Fortress 2 or GRAV with their comic style, bright colors and no-frills objects. Especially in the animations you can already see a lot of attention to detail, which makes the world look even more appealing. That alone will not be enough to make it an insider’s tip in the survival genre, but it will be interesting to see what the game’s developers are still doing.
The environment of Hurtworld also plays a big role. So there are different biomes with different temperatures and also different seasons. For example, when we are out in the desert we are not only thirsty, we also have to watch out for dangerous sandstorms. In the far north, on the other hand, our ass freezes without a fire – in Hurtworld, survival is not made easy for you.
Hurtworld has been in Early Access on Steam since December 2015 and is expected to be leaving EA by the end of 2016. The developers update the game at regular intervals and publish a patch and / or devblog every one to two weeks.
