'XERA: Survival' Available On Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

XERA: Survival is an action-focused looter-shooter, designed from the ground up as a multiplayer, open world PvPvE experience with a persistent global gear stash that players can access from within the game and from any server.

When a prototype combat robot becomes self-aware, only a group of competing mercenaries can end a war that humanity cannot afford to lose…

It’s 2022. The world is in chaos after a prototype combat robot – banned by law and awaiting secure destruction by XERA Corporation – became self-aware, escaped and replicated on an industrial scale. Nation turned on nation in a fight for control over resources. With the attention of the world’s military on self-defence, mercenaries and disillusioned combatants have descended on a remote forest region to ransack the remains of XERA’s facilities, setting up two forward operating bases on each side of the forest. Between these bases there are no rules of engagement, as for some, nothing less than the future of the human race is at stake; for others, there is a potentially boundless paycheck. For all, the only imperative is survival.

Players venture out in search of glory, revenge, salvation or political leverage – and loot. Scavenge for weapons, ammo, food and water, medical supplies; craft the tools you need to survive a harsh and unforgiving forest environment. Deploy drones to scout, transport – or close the business a bullet left unfinished. And when you’re ready to store your loot – just make it back alive to either base.

XERA: Survival is available on Steam Early Access, priced at $19.99 (USD), £15.49 (GBP), €16.79 (EUR).

In order to hold ourselves accountable, and to encourage involvement as well as feedback from the community, we will be bringing you a roadmap in the near future that will outline our plan for adding content while we are in Early Access.

One of the most common questions and concerns we have received from the community has revolved around the topic of wipes. We want to be clear that although we do not intend for this to happen, there may be situations that will arise where it could prove necessary to wipe your GI and character data. We will try to minimize the impact of any wipes that do occur and also want you to know that any skin boxes and skins that you earn prior to a wipe will NOT be affected. The good news is should there be a wipe, not only will you be able to keep any skins and skin boxes you’ve earned, you will also be able to earn them again by leveling up.

XERA: Survival lets players choose their own pace of play from session to session. Use the night / day cycle or dynamic weather systems to your advantage – sneak about avoiding PvP combat and build your resources, focusing on PvE takedowns to scavenge the best loot. In the base you can trade safely with other players, or save to your server-side stash, which is persistent across servers globally. Alternatively, you can choose to tool up and raid as a lone wolf or teamed with up to three buddies. Take part in giant PvPvE compound events or missions you pick up from NPCs back in the base. And all the while, lose just the equipment you brought with you in the event you meet an untimely death – getting straight back into the fight, dropping where you want in the 4x4km world using regular helicopter insertions from the bases.
