Early access survival game Scum sells one million units, devs reveal golden gun

Notes for patch also reveal some server, weapon, control, and event changes as well.


People outside of gaming would probably give some questioning looks if you told them you were playing a survival game where you have to make sure you pee and poop, but at least one million people now have the opportunity for that conversation to go down. The developers behind Scum, a new open-world survival game currently in early access, revealed the one-million-sales milestone today and are celebrating with the golden DEagle 50 1 Million edition.

Watch Happy Hour: An Evening With SCUM from Shacknews on

All players will be getting access to the new DEagle .50 on September 25, 2018. Owners of the Scum Supporter Pack will also get the Nice Watch, which currently just tells you the time of day but will have more features in the future. As it stands, being able to tell time is already a pretty crucial feature in the game's grueling survival experience. Today's patch notes are also live and here are a few highlights:

  • Added silver version of DEagle .50 and .357 that can be found throughout the world
  • Added admin command #SetTime to control server time
  • Added DEagle to event loadout
  • Prison - Added extra loot packages (Cover)
