Scum is an upcoming survival game that is quickly becoming one of the most exciting and hilarious online games of all time. At the moment the game is by no means perfect but the developers are working hard to continuously polish the game and add new features and updates. The developers have posted another update on Steam in which they wrote about new content that is being made from the game that we can expect in the upcoming future. Note that this is not a patch or update for the game, it’s simply a post in which the developers describe what they are currently working on.
One thing that Scum is definitely missing is vehicles. While vehicles are not always necessary in a survival game they would feel right at home in Scum and thankfully they’re almost finished, only some technical work and animation are left. Most players knew the developers have been working on vehicles for a while now though so the information is not all that new. We got a cool screenshot though of what a driving in Scum will look like.
Bows as weapons is another addition that fans have been waiting for and according to the developer post, the progress on implementing bows is going steadily. The animations for using the bow in 3rd person perspective are 90% done. They have also given us a first look at firing a bow from the first-person perspective. The screenshot is still a bit bland but it’s obviously work in progress. They also said that in the future they might implement a system where you could combine different arrowheads and arrow shafts.
Something that we have previously not seen though would be the new naval base that the developers have teased, and according to them, it will be one big maze to get lost in. The screenshots look promising although it still looks a bit empty, obviously, as this is still a work in progress. It definitely looks like an enormous new place for us to explore.
The developers have also given scopes a small update and the number of scopes in the game is now a total of 5.
POSP 4x24V – This scope is just for the SVD and it does not need a rail to be attached.
ZF39 – This scope is just for the Kar98 and it does not need a rail to be attached.
Hunter Scope – This scope is for the Hunter 85 and it does not need a rail to be attached.
P-223 – This scope can be used only with a rail, and the rail can be mounted on the SVD and AK47.
ACOG – This scope can be used only with a rail, and the rail can be mounted on the SVD and AK47.
Lastly, we have been given a quick look at loot containers that will be dropped all across the map.
