'Last Oasis' Early Access Update Adds New Map, Walker, Fauna And More

Last Oasis is a post-apocalyptic clan-based nomadic survival MMO.

Thousands of years in the future, after a cataclysmic event has halted the Earth’s rotation and destroyed the moon, the planet is now split into two extreme and inhospitable environments. The side that faces the sun is an arid wasteland and the other has been thrown into eternal ice and darkness. The only habitable area is the Twilight zone; a small strip of land between desert and ice, moving slowly around the Earth as the planet rotates around the sun. A day now lasts a year and in order to survive, the remnants of humanity have built a large walking city, Flotilla. Outside of the city, warring clans fight tooth and nail in a battle of survival as they clash over resources, territory and alliances in this unforgiving new world. Every day, Flotilla sends both willing and unwilling nomads into the passing Oases to gather necessary resources to keep the city walking. Not many return alive.

In Last Oasis, players take on the role of the unwilling chosen nomads from Flotilla. They must gather resources and build Walkers; large woodpunk inspired ship-like machines required for world travelling, combat, base building and harvesting. Walkers are upgradable and can be equipped with different attachments for these various purposes. At the highest level, clan warfare incorporates multiple walkers and players manning them on both sides. Large amounts of resources will be destroyed during clan wars, so players must think carefully about what and when to attack. Over time, clans will form alliances and hostilities. There will be times of peace, times of global war and constant player development.

The fire burns, your clan calls. Keep moving, the world is dying…

The latest update introduces a new volcanic map with all the fiery trimmings, including a new species of flying fauna, allowing nomads to hitch a ride across the lava filled plains. Take a look in the new trailer below.

Aside from these new flying beasts, known ominously as Killin, players can also look forward to the brand new Domus Walker and all new obsidian based volcanic weapons. There’s even a furniture pack, so every nomad can personalise their Walkers and really start to feel at home in Last Oasis.  Please see a full list of features below.

Key Features:

  • New Volcanic Map- Discover the land of fire and ash - a new and unique oasis filled with various dangers. Experience vast open fields, rocky pathways and scorching hot lava lakes, full of rare resources to harvest and new enemies to fight.
  • Volcanic Weapons - Being incredibly sharp and sturdy, volcanic weapons, made primarily of obsidian, could only lose to iron in their strength, while being easier to produce in high quantities.
  • Killin- Discover a new species of nomadic fauna capable of soaring in the skies. Being attracted by Walker Wings, Killins are incredibly strong and dangerous when approached unprepared.
  • Domus Walker - For nomads who believe that defense is the key to survival in the oases, Domus will become their new home. Protected by strong doors and walls all around, it's a giant bunker on legs 
  • Furniture Pack-  Add chairs, tables and more to your Walker - every nomad wants to feel at home in their Walker. Furnish your deck or your base with things like lamps and fire goblets, various chairs and carpets, and more.

Last Oasis is available through Steam Early Access, and Donkey Crew expect it to last 12 to 24 months, depending on the wishes and feedback of the community.

Players can also pick up Last Oasis in the Steam Summer Sale right now at 20% off. The sale finishes July 9.
