RimWorld Expansion and Patch

A post on Steam announces a new Royalty expansion is now available for RimWorld, 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 Trailer and here's word on the expansion and the patch:
Free update 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.

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.
