Dev Log #47: Announcing Underrail: Expedition
« on: October 11, 2016, 01:13:36 pm »
Hey guys,

It's been almost eight months since the last formal dev log. That doesn't mean we haven't been busy working on new stuff, however, and now at long last we can announce the first Underrail expansion - "Expedition".



In Expedition you'll be able to take a break from the usual metro-crawling to take a boat to the infamous Black Sea, a massive underground body of water.

There, among the old and mysterious ruins of an age long past, you'll face the vicious fauna, hostile natives, cunning pirates, and something far more sinister than all of those.

Your voyage through vastness of the Black Sea will shed new light on the history of the world of Underrail and the forces that shaped it.

Expedition will feature the following:
  • A brand new story line that becomes available during the mid-game
  • Over a 100 new areas to explore of various types - shores and islands of the Black Sea, mysterious underground facilities, pirate strongholds, and more
  • New human factions, as well as wild creatures to combat
  • New items and crafting recipes
  • New skills and feats
  • Leveling past level 25 with a special pool of feats to choose from

Over time we'll be revealing more details through the dev log, so expect those to once again flow regularly as they did before the game's release.

We expect to release the expansion during the first half of 2017 as a paid DLC.

Yay, finally we get to see what blackwater is all about! No continuation of the main storyline yet, it seems. Just how many expansions have you planned already!? ;)

Also, what are your plans for Underrail updates? Will there be new patches to the base game once Expedition is released, or will future updates be through the expansion?

As many DLCs as we feel like, as long as it's profitable.

We will continue to release updates for the base game as well. In the next update, you'll find that, in addition to fixing bugs, we've done some improvements as well. But more on that in some future dev log. ;)

Bravo! Cannot wait!

Happy to see the announcement finally drop. I was holding on to a sliver of hope that the expansion would come sooner, but the wait is now easier after having an idea of what's coming.

That's an amazing piece of news, thanks, Styg!

I see a lot of spiders on the artwork and screenshots. Please, please, please don't let us see too many of them. I know it may sound dumb and entitled, but hey, it's a real condition. I already had a lot of trouble finishing the main game because of that, I don't want it to taint my experience with the expansion too :(

Keep up the good work!

Words cannot express how beyond ridiculously excited I am about this expansion. I don't care about the price; an Underrail expansion is worth more than gold to me! :D
Everything looks stellar so far. Bravo, good sirs! Do continue! :)

The new environments look awesome, I'm stoked to delve back into Underrail when this gets released!

I hope we get our own boat to cruise the waterways.  :D
