Hey there everyone, happy Thursday! We have a big patch coming up! So check out the new stuff we have deployed to the island.

First up we are transferring to the final version of Unreal engine! This is a big deal for us and a milestone we worked on for a while now. Not only does it allows us more options on the backend end of things and more options to develop features, but it also has more optimized packet ending and streaming features in in it. But what does this mean to you, the player?
It means that you will see better performances on the game than before and it means you have more and better things to look forward to in the future.

PSA if you are still playing on Windows 7 ... Read more

Happy Monday, we are back with more content for you all! This one has a lot of info so read it carefully before returning to the island!

To start off we have went more in depth with our fishing environment. As any well experienced fisherman will tell you there are more conditions on what fish you want to catch. So it makes sense we add that to SCUM as well. So now there are multiple ones you have to take into consideration when going fishing including:
  • Time of day.
  • Size of the body of water.

Well long time no see, but we are back with another update. This one has some major changes so pay close attention!

Alright, this one is a big one and contains a lot of information so pay attention. You wanted more metabolism and we are here to deliver. Contamination and infections are now active and a real threat to prisoners.

Let's take it slow. What are infections? Well, it's an invasion and growth of germs/microbes in the body. And the most common way to get it is on unclean and non-sanitized open wounds. So let's talk about that.

From now on when you get a bleeding wound, depending on the clothes you have on, if any, and their cleanliness your wounds can now get... Read more
