Korean developer Reality MagiQ has announced the release of their answer to Rust, the futuristic survival shooter Dysterra. The game has entered Steam Early Access, with gameplay still in development, but regular updates promised in the lead-up to a full release.
Published by Kakao Games, Dysterra takes place on a ruined earth, sometime in the far future. With mutant creatures everywhere, resources are scarce and survival is a delicate balance of risk and reward. Players will be able to team up with friends, or venture out on their own to explore the now-desolate planet.
The sci-fi aspects of the game promise to cut down on tedious tasks that might be associated with survival and building games. Runs will begin with a firearm ready to use immediately, and players will be equipped with a machine arm that will make gathering resources faster and easier than it might be in similar titles.
Finding food, building bases, and fending off enemy players will form a large part of the gameplay, but the developers appear to be attempting to create a survival game with a low barrier of entry that can appeal to newcomers to the genre.
Dysterra is available now for PC via Steam Early Access.
