WROCLAW, POLAND – OCTOBER 22, 2020.
The Poland-based independent game developers Donkey Crew are today very pleased and excited to announce that they have just released the “Commerce” update for their post-apocalyptic survival MMO “Last Oasis”.
Following in the footsteps of its fiery predecessor, the Volcanic Update. The Commerce Update, available now in Last Oasis, is the most ambitious addition the Nomadic Survival MMO has seen since it launched into Steam Early Access earlier this year.
Flots can buy a Nomad just about anything in Last Oasis. Food, shelter, armour, deadly weapons and manpower. Jingling, they are poured from hand to hand, and most often both parties are happy with the transaction. But it takes some special skill to strike a profitable bargain.
The Commerce Update focuses largely on trade, but also promises players a slew of new improvements and fixes to further enhance their nomadic lifestyles. New Commerce Update features are listed below. General update notes, outlining other fixes and improvements, as well as the new Beta Branch, can also be found here.
Commerce Update – Key Features
Ancient City Map – a brand new map for Nomads to explore, featuring new loot sites, new rupu camps, and more.
Wandering Merchants – new wandering merchants can be found, even in the most unexpected places, with unique trade orders.
Trading Station Flotilla Quests – a new source of Flots for nomads who fulfill requests from the Flotilla, like hunting dangerous wildlife and transporting goods.
Trading Station Flotilla Auctions – allows bidding against other nomads on weapons, tools, tablets, and other goods of various quantities and value.
Global Flots Vault – the Global Flots Vault allows nomads to claim acquired money from any trading station.
Trade Order Migration – allows automatic order migration to other trading stations when a map burns.
Silur Walker – a new Walker that allows Nomads to pack and transport heavily defended stone bases.
“While the Commerce Update is bringing many highly anticipated features to Last Oasis, we’re also introducing core changes to the game mechanics and its balance to make it feel like a whole new experience.” says Florian “chadz” Hoffreither, Donkey Crew’s Creative Director and Project Lead.
We’re focusing on quick iterations with all the feedback from our players, as well as bringing in new and exciting additions, and can’t wait to reveal what other features and improvements we’re working on, as well as what else the upcoming theme has in store for the game. Last Oasis 2.0 is on the horizon”
Last Oasis is set on a devolved, post-apocalyptic future Earth, where a cataclysmic event has plunged the planet into two uninhabitable environments: ice and desert. One strip of habitable land remains, moving slowly as the Earth rotates around the sun. The remnants of humanity survive only by sending unwilling Nomads into the passing oases to face warring clans and gather the necessary resources to keep moving. Not many return alive.
Players can join the Last Oasis community now by following @OasisNomad on Twitter. They are also encouraged to join fellow Nomads on the official Last Oasis Discord channel and check the Steam community hub for regular development updates.
