I am very proud of what we achieved with the updates we released during June, so I made this GIF post to celebrate this small victory in the development process.
Our new update is finally taking shape and we are ready to talk about it. The main objective with this new patch is to give more purpose to the player’s exploration and resource management efforts. The central theme in the update will be “research expedition”, the player will be given tools to collect data about the island, he can then upload this data and get critical survival items in exchange (gun mags, med kit) OR cool items that will allow you to personalize your structures (paint buckets).
Weather monitor and ice drill!
radical visual improvements
Eta 2 more weeks
