Last Survivor is a multiplayer game with MMO features and a melee-focused that combines skill, crafting, survival, and scavenging gameplay mechanics. It is set in a post-apocalyptic punk universe where the outcome of any battle completely depends on the player’s skills.

You can become a strong, but somehow slow warrior with a multitude of battle skills and strong damage resistance or a fast fighter who can fight for a long time without losing stamina. Collect resources, develop new skills and unlock new pieces of equipment to enhance your fighter’s capabilities.

As impressive and engaging as this game is, it can sometimes drive players crazy due to all the bugs they encounter. As a result, for the time being, Last Survivor has received mostly negative reviews on Steam.

Last Survivor bugs affects many Windows players


Last Survivor lags big time

As you can see in the video below, the game is affected by terrible lag issues, and the brightness level is eye-aching. The game developers promise that the upcoming patch will address this issue.


Flickering black screen

Last Survivor is literally unplayable for many gamers. They are experiencing low FPS rate issues, but the most annoying bug is the flickering black screen. The culprit for this situation seems to be NVIDIA ShadowPlay.

I have a gtx 750ti and get around 40fps. Its playable, but this flickering black screen is making the game unplayable. I believe nVidia ShadowPlay is causing it, but I cant disable it and I cant record gameplay either. The developers should focus on Optimizing the game for better FPS and allowing nvidia to not cause this stupid flickering screen.

The good news is that Original Games is working to improve the overall game performance in the future, and will roll out the updates as soon as they’re stable enough.

In the future, the performance will be improved by a twice +-25%, but only for future maps and remake of the current (we will redo it after 2-3 new maps), and also after remake of the network too. It is all about half a year of development. We publish some kind of the roadmap later (after week or two after release) with it.


Gamers can’t take screenshots

Although this is not a major issue, many gamers are upset they can’t capture their glory moments. Perhaps some players want to take Last Survivor screenshots and set them as background images. Original Games has acknowledged this screenshot issue and will look into it in the coming days.


As you can see, Last Survivor is affected by major graphics issues. If you’re thinking about buying the game, we recommend you wait until Original Games releases a patch for all these bugs.
