SCUM is a great looking new Unreal Engine 4 powered open world Battle Royale/Hunger Games-esque survival gameshow set on a remote prison island where contestants/prisoners battle for viewers, gifts, corporate sponsorship and their lives.
As well as offering a lush gaming world to explore, SCUM adds remarkable levels of customisation that not only affect how your character looks, but how they play as well. There are four main attributes – strength, dexterity, constitution and intelligence – each of which will allow you to build the exact type of character you’d like tp play as – from long distance runners to big bulky tanks. As you progress you’ll earn knowledge and skills that will be vital for your long term survival, such as weapon proficiency, combat skills and hacking abilities, all the while balancing your body’s needs. Death isn’t the end for you either – the shows produces may resurrect you with all your valuable skills intact.
It’s a great looking game with plenty of depth and a gritty atmosphere as your prisoners swap their life sentences for 15 minutes of fame (and most likely still end up dying anyway!). Sign up now to join the scum!
