Check out the trailer and release notes below!
Surviving the Aftermath Update 3: Expeditions
Vehicles will no doubt be a welcomed addition to the game. Found while out exploring, these allow the player to move groups of specialists around the world map. Considering the post-apocalyptic setting, these vehicles won’t be in good nick, so you will first need to bring them back to your base of operations to repair them.
With additional movement around the map comes the need to trade. This cornerstone of all civilization is making its way to Surviving the Aftermath. Players will be able to trade valuable resources and request assistance, provided their colony has the reputation. Set up trade routes, manage inventory, and decide whether or not the colonists on your doorstep deserve your camaraderie.
Also included in Surviving the Aftermath’s Expeditions update is new buildings and Twitch integration. The update will be adding a Refinery and Garage. Refine fuel from sunflower oil and repair the aforementioned vehicles in your garage to aid in transportation. Through the Twitch integration, viewers can vote on the next catastrophe that befalls the colony or even the results of events.
