There is a way of playing through Survivor+ without completing Survivor first
To get the game thinking you're on a Survivor+ run without having to finish the game once through Survivor difficulty, do the following:
Delete any patches you have installed (Patch 1.01 as of writing this)
Start a New Game+
Complete Chapter 1 of the game, Hometown
As soon as Chapter 2 begins (20 Years Later), pause the game and save. Exit to the main menu
Choose Chapter Select and select the first chapter "Hometown"
Notice you can now select Survivor difficulty? Select it and play the game from this point on to the end.
I did this earlier without bothering to delete the patch and am now playing on Survivor difficulty with all my previous upgrades/ supplements etc.
