Devolver Digital Show Off a New SCUM Early Access Trailer at E3

Devolver Digital threw one of their pre-recorded E3 press conferences again, this time around featuring three games, starting with SCUM. The trailer is a little odd since the game is still in Early Access, but the trailer is promoting their second season of gameplay. Which begs the question, if we may so boldly use the same language they used on the stream: Why the fuck are you not officially released yet?

The trailer itself promotes new weapons and fun to be had throughout the game, including triple the drones floating around. If you don’t know much about the game, here’s it’s description along with the E3 trailer below.

The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust as entertainment behemoth TEC1 is set to premiere season two of its television sensation SCUM. This new season moves the contest from the rugged, enclosed Alcatraz sector to the full grandure of Bagne de Cayenne, an island with a sordid history of violent incarceration. Both fan favorites and new prisoners will clash in a ruthless war of survival while battling for the support of viewers, producers, and corporate sponsors for fame, gifts, and a chance of life after death.

SCUM evolves the multiplayer open world survival game with unprecedented levels of character customization, control and progression, where knowledge and skills are the ultimate weapons for long-term survival. Players will balance base level needs with knowledge-based skills to manage everything from nourishment, metabolic rate and body mass to weapons proficiency, combat style and security systems hacking. Dominate the island with your skills, cunning and strategies to achieve higher levels of game and receive powerful gifts from corporate sponsors and, if you happen to slip up and die, get resurrected by the show’s producers with all your valuable skills still intact.
