Best Survival game?

I'm bored of traditional MMO's. What's the best Survival game out right now?

I have some friends playing ARK, thought about trying that.

FFXIV on Behemoth, FFXI on Eden, and Gloria Victis on NA.

    There are so many now. What are you looking for? 

    Do you want zombies or just gather and build to survive? This will make a difference on what folks will suggest.

    I live in my own little world - I like it there - everyone knows me.

    Well, Ark is by far the most developed and beautiful, not to mention unique with dinosaurs, but if want something large scale, then I suggest 7 Days To Die since it allows for procedurally generated maps. The graphics in 7DTD aren't all that great, but what it lacks in beauty, it makes up for in scary noises and haunting atmosphere.

    Of course, survival games are fun solo, they are even better with friends. So if your friends are playing Ark, then that is where I would go.

    I'm also looking for surival MMOs. Have some fantasy, gather and build to survive to suggest??

    Also other games except from ARK?
    Sandbox MMORPGs that are not very well-known but definitely worth a look:

    Ryzom, Haven and Hearth, Xsyon, The Repopulation, UO private shards, Mortal Online, Darkfall 1 remakes (New Dawn or Rise of Agon), RPG MO, Project Gorgon, EQ: Sanctuary (custom  server)

    JUst so you know if you subscribe to Humble Bundle monthly (12 bucks US) in the current bundle you get ARK much cheaper than actually buying it (plus other games), if you end the subscription you still get to keep the games in the monthly bundle.

    Is it a MMO or just small servers like ARK?

    I'm looking for an MMO mostly.. Suggest other games too if you know!

    Yeah, I'm also interested in this. But right now we have next to no info at all about it.

    The closest thing to a survival MMO would be Wurm I'd assume. Though I wouldn't call it a survival game.

    More of a small server thing. Though your character progression is persistent across servers so you can play with friends. Life is Feudal may be something you like. It is pretty hard and requires teamwork to be successful. Maybe Xyson? It is an MMO. Can be a harsh game.

    Yeah I've tried it. It's a very nice game but have to spend ALOT of time to build anything (which is good, dedication = reward, but currently I'm looking for something different) and also yeah, its not a survival game. More like a crafting MMO.

    Hmm, Savage Lands is interesting then.
    I've bought LiF and I'm waiting for the MMO to start (beta will be soon). As for Xsyon yeah it's very good, although not really a survival and teamworking is a must (don't always like that).

    Other surival MMOs? Even with zombies, that focus either on surviving, building, farming, or combat PvP/PvE etc?

    Ryzom, Haven and Hearth, Xsyon, The Repopulation, UO private shards, Mortal Online, Darkfall 1 remakes (New Dawn or Rise of Agon), RPG MO, Project Gorgon, EQ: Sanctuary (custom  server)
  • ManasuManasu Member UncommonPosts: 212
    Also it is planned to make Savage Lands a complete MMO?
    Doing something like Life is Feudal?

    7 days to Die is probably lots of fun with friends. Its outright brutal game. Real survival.

    Life is Feudal is great community game, really feels like MMOs of old. But there is not much survival there.

    Ark is simply fantastic game, but PVP can be brutal, and PVE is less fun that PVP

    Well to put in in another way,  I don't have any online friends to play games with :D. Yeah I know I can join in small servers and meet the people there, but generally I'm looking for something more massive.

    7DtD and Ark are small server based games. Ark really has potential and I could really like it but yeah, will wait till it comes as MMO or will just buy and play it if I don't find any better.

    As for LiF, I have bought it (mostly for support) and waiting to come as MMO beta, but it's not really survival too.

    Not sure on the gameplay or if it has been mentioned yet, but Wild looks interesting:

    ark i wouldnt even bother recommending to anyone due to the dev team being completely idiotic and not addressing performance in over a year since release. Not to mention them constantly changing things without notice or info. I honestly cannot think of a more incompetent dev team out there currently than wildcard. Their lead dev is cocky, assholish, and just a jerk.

    7 days to die is good but very slow to update, about a update every 3 to 4 months and can get very stale quickly once you learn how to play with the slow updates.

    Stranded Deep is a castaway sim thats just like the movie basically but also very slow to update but you can get a couple of weeks of fun out of the current game.

    People really should mention fallout 4 also here though it with mods is hands down the best sandbox survival game currently but just does not have any multiplayer and with their new system about to release that makes you get disease hunger thirst etc its going to push consequences hard core. 

    Other mentions planet explorers sci fi survival seem about in beta and close to being ready with loads of content and voxel base. 
    The long dark if you want a realistic survival sim but can be boring after a couple of playthroughs
    The forest VERY scary game at times, good survival, but can be frustrating with the loads of materials it takes to build and the cannibals constantly stalking you.
    Dont Starve another good survival game that has multiplayer but the graphics are a turn off to some but it has some of the most hardcore survival elements with food spoilage and permanent death

    7 Days to Die was last updated on Feb 5th and before that Jan 28th so that is not true.
    Anyways for what you are looking for I think you are going to be hard  pressed to find something that fits to be honest.
    Nether Resurrected is decent. It used to be terrible but they have made a lot of changes to the game and for the better.

    Does it have to be multiplayer? No? Then I'll seize this opportunity to recommend The Void; while not a 'survival game' per se, it's close enough.  It includes resource management, time is not on your side, and it becomes increasingly harder to survive the further along you go.  It also has one of the most unique and interesting systems/settings I've ever seen in a video game.  It's the game I would have wanted to design:

    I have some friends playing ARK, thought about trying that.
    https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly

    I think ark is still part of the monthly bundle.

    Along with grav and wasteland 2 and couple other games. 

    Monthly is 12 bucks and you can cancel it at any time and keep all that month's games.  Great deal if it is still available for any that are thinking of trying Ark.
