Dear Viceroys!

We’re happy to present the roadmap of upcoming changes in the first quarter of Early Access.

Last updated: November 16, 2021.

Next Update

We’ll do our best to release meaningful updates every two weeks followed by smaller hotfixes or patches if necessary.

Coral Forest Update

In the next Update, we plan to introduce the new biome (winner of the first in-game Community Vote). The Coral Forest biome is inspired by the ideas from the Community Brainstorm

We received a lot of feedback after the Quality of Life Update. While we are generally satisfied with the reception (many of you indicated it’s a step in the right direction), we are also aware that the changes sparked many controversies. In this Update, we will try to fine-tune the Resolve balance. Undoubtedly, balancing the game will be a long-term process, so it may take a couple of updates to find the sweet spot.

What’s coming:

  • New biome (Community Vote winner)
  • Orders’ generation revamp
  • New orders
  • Resolve balance improvements
  • Community-inspired improvements
  • And more!

Community Vote #1 – Results

Thank you for participating! The winner of the first Community Vote is the new biome.

We are now picking from the new biome ideas that were shared during the Community Brainstorm. We will share more news soon!

The special abilities system is also planned to be added but further down the road.

Out now in Early Access:

May the storm be gentle on you,
