Readers will recall that the original hook for the survival sandbox Last Oasis was that the sun keeps burning the heck out of the planet, meaning survivors had to keep moving within the habitable zone. Starting on May 20th, that game mechanic will finally arrive.
In game map terms, this means that oases on the westernmost side will begin to decay, while new oases will pop up on the easternmost side. Players that happen to be caught in a fully decayed oasis will be moved over to a nearby oasis, regardless of whether they’re online or not. Additionally, up to five Walkers that have been flagged as favorites will also be moved offmap to a nearby oasis just like players will, but that’s where the leniency ends; everything else, including non-favorite Walkers, unpacked bases, and deployed Proxy Walkers will be lost forever.
