With the next big testing patch arriving on Tuesday, Worlds Adrift is preparing players for a wipe that will make way for improvements to come.
Patch 0.1.6 will add the new swivel guns, newbie tooltips, and tons of additional visual effects. “These deck-mounted shotguns are effective against players and creatures, and come as a full category of procedurally generated schematics with procedurally generated art (like cannons),” the team said.
The developers also laid out a list of projects that they’ve been working on for the two patches to follow. These tasks include balancing loot tables, updating the island export, improving the Blight’s AI so that it will go after less desirable ships first, better crafting station effects, and of course lots of bug fixes.
