RimWorld 1.1 is out with a first expansion with RimWorld - Royalty

By - | Views: 16,670

Ludeon Studios dropped a sneaky one, not only did they release the big RimWorld 1.1 update they also released the first big expansion named RimWorld - Royalty.

First, a reminder on what the big 1.1 update brings for everyone: UI improvements for high resolutions, a new Quests tab, modding improvements, the Vanilla Animals mod is now part of the game adding in more animal variety, new armour, new weapons, an asexual trait was added and so on.

As for the expansion, RimWorld - Royalty, Ludeon mentioned that their team has expanded to seven people which has allowed them to work on multiple things. This includes new free content, plus the brand new expansion and it sounds like more to come. See the trailer for Royalty below:

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" and sounds like it's worth picking up.

RimWorld was already an incredibly varied game and Royalty sounds delightfully crazy in some ways, making a big use of the Quest system. I'm much more excited by the mechanoid clusters, which are groups of mechanoid buildings to give you a challenge to assault which changes the pace compared to the relatively defensive nature of the main game.

Don't own it? You can pick up RimWorld from Humble Store and Steam. It's also coming soon to GOG.

Really cool surprise! Hopefully it's fun to play, and bring in some royalties for the developers.

Nice pun. :P

Not sure if I'm going to be playing this again, but good to see it's still being developed for those who ARE interested.

I bet this game is really good but I just can't get over the horrible art style.

Wow. I love this game, probably one of my favorites of all time. The expansion looks like it adds quite a bit of challenge. Kinda reminds me of the demands of "royalty" in dwarf fortress
