CHICAGO – February 4, 2014 – Surviving in the ruins of Nether is no easy task and now players have new choices thanks to today’s feature update for the first-person urban survival game. The long awaited and highly requested crafting feature is now live and a soon to be available creature mode that lets players wreak havoc as a nether will be available later this month. Nether is also adding a tribe system, featuring tribe bases, a tribe skill tree and tribe objectives, that will go into the game at the end of February. In the meantime, players can sign up for a tribe to earn special in-game items and new players can join in the process by purchasing Nether via Steam or at PlayNether.com for 25 percent off until February 7.
New features include:
- 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 suppliesNew in-game items, including a motorcycle biker suit and other tools for survival
Since launching early access Nether has used player input when selecting features for updates and to continue the tradition fans can submit choices to determine the tribe names. The top names will then enter a community vote. All those who join a tribe from now until February 15 will earn in-game cash, loot and a free tribe uniform.
“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,” said Chip Sineni, Creative Director at Phosphor Games. “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 a first-person urban survival gaming experience unlike any other. Nether forces players to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as nethers. To navigate this high-tension environment, players must use skill and cunning in order to obtain food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to survive in a desolate and dangerous city. Players can choose whether or not to team up with others or go at it solo against the nethers, other players, and unpredictable, treacherous world objectives. In the end, players must decide if they will Prey or Pray.
