'Surviving the Aftermath' (ALL) Early Access Update #9 Adds Updated Tech Tree Skills and More

by Rainier on Aug. 13, 2020 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

Surviving the Aftermath is the next installment in the post-apocalyptic survival colony builder series.

In Surviving the Aftermath, players will build and manage a colony of survivors in the shadow of a world-ending event. Resources are scarce following the apocalypse, and survival requires mastery of complex systems to optimize production and colony management to ensure nothing is wasted. Players will construct buildings, manage colonists, adapt to natural disasters and more in an effort to restore civilization.

Surviving the Aftermath is more than a colony builder and enables players to go beyond the shelter to explore a dangerous world filled with unique biomes, hazards, bandits, and more. Recruit and send out teams of Specialists to gather resources and intelligence about the world around the colony. Players can see what their teams have discovered by utilizing a vast overworld map that adds layers of strategic gameplay not typically included in a colony builder.

Future updates to Surviving the Aftermath include diplomacy and combat options between colonies, expanded tech trees, endgame content and much more.

Paradox Intreractive and Iceflake Studios have rolled out Surviving the AftermathUpdate 9: First Settlers.

With Update 9, Surviving the Aftermath completely reimagines early-game mechanics and how players establish their colonies. Updated Tech Tree skills add invaluable features to the game, including additional resources, skills and a building.

Currently available as Early Access through the Epic Games Store and Xbox Game Preview, Surviving the Aftermath will also come to Steam Early Access on October 22, 2020, with a full release planned for Early 2021.

Key Features:

  • No Place Like Home: Build and manage a colony of survivors after a world-ending event. Construct more than 50 unique buildings to handle everything from resource collection and farming to exploration and security. Don’t forget to construct the Gate to venture into the savage world beyond your colony. 
  • Surviving Earth: Explore a vast procedurally generated world featuring six different biomes filled with exploitable resources, bandits, and more. Each environment has different conditions that will affect your colony’s survival. Stay vigilant: Natural disasters will put your survivors to the test. 
  • Survival is my Specialty: Recruit over 46 unique Specialists, each with their own skills and motivations, to manage your colony’s resources and production. Send them beyond the Gate on scientific missions, scavenger runs, and to fight bandits.
  • Expect the Unexpected: Life in the aftermath requires you to make moral choices. You may not be able to control everything in your colony, but how you respond to situations and emergent events will shape the character of your new civilization.
  • Mods: Surviving the Aftermath players can bring their own visions to life using Paradox Mods. 

Surviving the Aftermath is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC (Epic Games Store, Steam) in early 2021.
