Reality MagiQ, Pangyo — Jan 5, 2023 | Following its successful early access launch on Steam, Dysterra is gearing up for a new year of exciting updates. Players of this innovative sci-fi survival game can expect game-changing new features and content, all detailed in the Dysterra 2023 roadmap.

Since the game’s initial PC release, Dysterra’s development team have been working hard to improve their survival shooter, while also creating a pipeline of upcoming content for players to enjoy. In the short term, the team’s immediate priority is to fix bugs, optimize performance, and improve in-game balancing, listening carefully to community feedback. Over the next two months, players can expect quality-of-life features such as emotes, chat enhancement, and ping system improvements.

Looking further ahead, future updates will expand every aspect of Dysterra’s gameplay:

New Content

New Dysterra content will be added regularly throughout 2023. Players will have more gameplay elements to experiment with thanks to new events, resources, items, and NPCs. These will also help expand the game’s backstory and world-building.

New Weapons and Items

A variety of weapons and supplemental items will also be introduced every month. New guns and auxiliary items will increase the number of loadout options possible, allowing for more varied playstyles and combat scenarios.

Housing Features and Decorations

Something you cannot miss in a survival-genre game is housing. New decorations and housing features will allow players to further customize their Dysterra base for better comfort and protection.

Clans and Vehicles

Responding to player feedback, the developers will add a Clan system to Dysterra in a future update. This will enable larger scale team fights between players as they battle over territories and servers.

There will also be more ways to navigate Dysterra’s dynamic in-game worlds thanks to the arrival of new vehicles. The studio has some exciting new vehicle designs planned, complete with mounted weaponry and improved attack capabilities.

Don’t miss out on the latest Dysterra updates by signing up via Twitter, Discord, and the game’s Steam community page. You can also find out more about the game via its official website.

About Dysterra

Out now on Steam, Dysterra is a survival shooter that takes place on a destroyed future Earth. With the discovery of TerraSite, mankind has made rapid progress but, in return, their homeworld faces annihilation. In Dysterra, players need to strategize in order to stay alive, securing food, gear, and shelter to survive on a hostile planet, forging weapons, armor, and potential alliances with other players.

Fans of the genre — and games such as Rust — will enjoy Dysterra’s survival systems, from item crafting to its intuitive base-building. However, unlike some other survival games, Dysterra eliminates those tedious barriers players of the genre often complain about. You’ll start each game with a sidearm and rifle, crucially cutting down the time it takes to engage with enemy players and AI. Your high-tech machine arm will also significantly speed up crafting and gathering resources, allowing players to focus on survival instead of time-consuming tasks. These design choices are aimed at keeping the action focused and accessible to newcomers who might be put off by some aspects of the survival genre.
