In this announcement post, we discuss next weeks minor update including new weapons outfits, as well as other upcoming minor updates and major updates.
Next week we are releasing new outfits! These outfits spawn in inventory boxes in a similar way to scuba, firefighting, etc. outfits. While they are available in the base game, they only function cosmetically. With Weapons DLC enabled, these outfits provide enhanced ballistic protection.
The new outfits include various grades of body armour / helmets, as well as a bomb disposal outfit with protection specifically to explosives.
Of course there will be more than just these new features, and many fixes and improvements will also be included in next weeks update.
We are getting further ahead with our updates, and have managed to extend our lead-in time (the time between completing or near-completing an update, and releasing it). This is giving us more time for quality control and testing, and is generally just a calmer way of working. This also means we are working on various minor and major updates at any one time!
We previously discussed a new major update that we have been working on, that we would like to extend and expand into a much bigger DLC update. We are still considering this and working on other new features that are related and could become part of this, if not their own update.
We are also working on other major update features, and while it is too early to talk about specifics, there is a lot of really fun and interesting stuff that can add a lot to the life of the world of Stormworks.
Much love <3,
The Stormworks Developers
