Wiesbaden, Germany - 30th November, 2020. Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Gentlymad Studios today announced the release of the ninth major update to award-winning survival city-builder Endzone - A World Apart. The new update brings with it lots of new animals in the form of livestock, plus a new building to make use of the critters that have found their way into Endzone

 

However, raising livestock doesn’t come easy; settlers must use the Hunting Lodge to hunt and capture animals that can be kept within farm pasture, another new in-game addition. Likewise, the newly added Food Counter is used to provide food for settlers, which means less walking distance to acquire necessary nourishment in the form of hearty meals, cakes, and various stews.

Additionally, the in-game tutorial has been expanded to include the use of these new features so that players get a glimpse into how their settler’s food is being made and processed, in addition to a detailed walkthrough on how to catch, tame, and farm livestock. 

 

For more information, visit the Endzone early access roadmap here. For the visual learners, Endzone’s lead developer Kai Mergener will be streaming the update tomorrow at 3pm UK on the official Assemble Entertainment Twitch channel, here.  

 

Endzone - A World Apart follows a group of refugees who, more than a century after a devastating worldwide nuclear terrorist attack, are leaving their underground bunkers and rebuilding society. After 150 years of dwelling underground in bunkers called “endzones,” the Earth’s surface seems like a breath of fresh air, though that couldn’t be any further from the truth!

 

Developed by Gentlymad Studios and published by Assemble Entertainment, Endzone - A World Apart is currently available in Early Access on Steam and plans for a full launch later in 2021. Endzone - A World Apart will continue to roll out major content updates up until the game’s full launch. Players can look forward to new buildings, upgrades, system updates, and various gameplay improvements in December! 

 

As an added bonus, Assemble Entertainment has teamed up with the charitable organization One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Save the World Edition bundle purchase. Not only that, players that buy the Save the World bundle will also receive a free copy of the game’s stellar soundtrack!
