Developer Phosphor Games has announced the newest features that have been added to its in-development survival action game, Nether. The new features include crafting and trading systems, a creature mode, and additional in-game survival items and equipment. As well, a tribe system is planned for release in later February that would contain tribe-specific bases, objectives, and a skill tree.
- Creature Mode - Players wanting to cause more chaos in Nether can morph into nethers and use their stalking skills to terrorize the streets
- Crafting/Trading - No weapons no problem. Players can now scavenge the city ruins and create their own arms for dispatching nethers or trade them in Safe Zones for needed supplies
- New in-game items, including a motorcycle biker suit and other tools for survival
Phosphor Games Creative Director Chip Sineni described the newest features, "The main focus of any survival game is to see how long someone can last before biting the dust, but what makes for a rich playing experience are added elements that challenge players on another level. With creature mode and crafting, we are giving players these added components that not only make surviving more exciting, but also gives fans new ways to explore the city."
Nether is available now through the Steam Early Access program for Windows PC.
