The Future of Blockchain-Powered Games? Experts say gaming will be the first real use case for blockchain, revamping the industry and making games more immersive than ever. How gaming navigates the remaining hurdles will become a case study for other industries considering mass blockchain adoption. The Settlement Co., which has created an early access roadmap to release its Settler’s Quest game on Ethereum’s blockchain in 2019, is one that decided to take this step as part of their long term plan.
Settlement Survival’s early access plan has been revealed by publisher and developer Gleamer Studio, giving players a clearer sense of what to anticipate in the first half of 2022.
The early access plan for Settlement Survival expands on the game’s ten updates while also responding to player input by promising improved mechanics, new maps and modes, as well as expanded narrative material.
The game’s storage and trade systems will be reworked in November and December 2021, as well as the inclusion of a random event feature and five new NPC factions, as well as a partial overhaul of the user interface.
The early access plan for Settlement Survival seeks to revamp the immigration system in Q1 2022, replacing existing mechanisms with new ones and introducing tourism and a means to monitor your city’s attractions.
Attracting foreign people to your settlement increases citizen satisfaction, which leads to increased revenue.
New machining features such as batch processing and autonomous processing logic, as well as new marvels, spectacular buildings, climate-based landscapes, and a gaming mode “combining multiple cultural components,” are all planned for Q1 2022.
Settlement Survival’s early access plan for Q1 2022 includes dangerous fauna, new tamed pets, and “unique items” waiting to be found.
The developer will transfer its efforts to an all-new narrative mode that reworks Easter Island in the second quarter of next year.
The idea is to provide a more immersive narrative experience by enabling players to experience the Ice Age as the Last Vikings, difficult settings as the Anasazi, and the Black Death as the Europeans.
Things may change in the next months, as they do with all roadmaps. Nonetheless, if you’re a lover of the game, the first half of 2022 seems to be rather interesting.
Settlement Survival is now available on Steam Early Access on PC.
