post on Steam
announces a new
expansion is now available for
the recently released sci-fi colony simulator for Windows, macOS, and Linux
(thanks Tessier). This comes alongside a new patch that updates the base game to
version 1.1 with UI changes, new quests, improved ode management, and more.
Here's a Royalty Launch
and here's word on the expansion and the patch:
to version 1.1
RimWorld's free 1.1 update is now live for all players! This update has been on
the unstable branch for a week to smooth the transition for mods, and now it's
the standard branch for everyone.
To see the full change log for this update, look at the
original 1.1 announcement here.
RimWorld - Royalty released
RimWorld's new expansion RimWorld - Royalty is available!
See the trailer and full description on the
RimWorld - Royalty Steam page here.
The expansion includes a new system for nobles and titles, psychic powers,
mechanoid combat structures, quests and rituals, luxurious palaces, Imperial
technology, and new music from Alistair Lindsay.
Through all of RimWorld development from 2013 to its release in 2018, our team
size hovered between two and three developers. Since the game's release, we've
been scaling up. Now we're at seven developers, which has allowed us to work on
multiple projects in parallel. This is how we've been able to commit resources
both to improving RimWorld's core and adding new free content, as well as
developing a rich expansion that opens up new kinds of gameplay.
