'Endzone: A World Apart' Early Access Update Adds Introduces Trade & Bartering - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 29, 2020 @ 2:36 p.m. PDT

Endzone: A World Apart is a post-apocalyptic city-builder set in a world ravaged by a catastrophic worldwide nuclear powerplant meltdown caused by terrorists in 2021.

Endzone: A World Apart challenges players to prove themselves as a worthy leader and survive in a hostile environment where the most dangerous foes are the unforgiving climate and catastrophic weather events. 

Endzone: A World Apart follows a group of refugees who, more than a century after a devastating worldwide nuclear powerplant terrorist attack, are leaving their underground bunkers and rebuilding society on the surface. After 150 years dwelling underground in bunkers called ‘endzones,” Earth’s surface seems like a breath of fresh air, though that couldn’t be any further from the truth! Players will face the likes of toxic rain, dangerously radioactive environments, raging sandstorms, and a merciless climate.

While spearheading the rise of humanity, men, women, and children will need protection from threats of all kinds, and there’s no telling what each new day will bring on the forsaken planet from which they’ve emerged. 

The update gives survivors a new kind of fighting chance: the ability to trade, barter, and even receive higher education.

Players may now make use of the Trading Post, where they’ll make deals and barter with traders. Greedy offers won’t get far, though, as traders often remember an unfair transaction, which will tarnish a player’s reputation. Seal the deal, but do so with an eye toward strategy! Traders will offer more valuable and rare goods to those with an excellent reputation.

As they say, children are the leaders of tomorrow. Even in the apocalypse, proper schooling is of the utmost importance. With the new Advanced School, settlers can confidently send their children to class to study multiple subjects, versus the Standard School, which focuses on one subject at a time, making for a slow education progression.

Key Features:

  • The Pursuit of Happiness: The world as we know it is gone. Build a new home for the last human survivors! Provide them with a steady food and water supply, educate them on how to cultivate their own crops, and provide shelter that can withstand the worst the weather has to offer with over 30 different buildings, each with a significant purpose.
  • Gather & Lead: As the leader of your settlement, coordinate and assign different professions and tasks. Let your people gather and refine a wide array of resources, and manage your economy by building an efficient infrastructure with streets, depositories, and markets.
  • The Invisible Enemies: Though the nuclear meltdowns are long past, harmful radiation still haunts the surface of Earth in the form of toxic rains, contaminated soil, and more. Safeguard your people and their hard-earned crops with special anti-contamination gear, water filters, protective buildings, and more.
  • Survive the Drought: The climate has changed, and not for the better! Prepare for recurring droughts by planning ahead and stocking up on food, water, and other essentials. Withstand unstoppable sandstorms as they destroy buildings and bring with them deadly radiation. Every weather cycle is a new challenge! 
  • A Vivid, Dynamically Simulated World: Every inch of earth in the game features dynamically simulated humidity and radiation. Watch as rain clouds irrigate your soil, or prepare for ongoing battles against toxic rain as they bring devastating radiation to the land.
  • Think like a Diplomat: The world beyond your safe and carefully crafted civilization is intimidating, but it’s your job to make the tough decisions that will secure the fate of your people, such as sending expeditions to remote, unexplored locations to source materials, locate resources, and more.
