This week we made some huge improvements to multiplayer that fixed some issues some players reported and it is looking loads better! This happened mid week as a hot fix, so if you have not checked out multiplayer in the last few days, then give it a go!
We have also added a new island... the new multiplayer island! This is a frequently requested location with 2 hangers and 2 docks so you can spawn vehicles at the same time as your friends. This island has a huge 1200m runway and is generally a great base to locate your operations.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be continuing to improve multiplayer with new fixes and features.
We are also hard at work on the next major update which is looking awesome, and we are really looking forward to announcing it.
Stormworks first released in alpha just over 2 years ago, and it has been fantastic fun working on the game for the last 2 years of live development with player feedback. We still see huge potential and there is still a lot to do. Thanks to everyone who voted on the Discord poll, we have taken your feedback on board and we are working on a great development plan.
Much love <3
