Distant Places takes place centuries after settlers managed to regain a foothold on the surface of Earth after having been in subterranean bunkers for over 150 years to escape a radioactive hellscape on the ground above. Featuring 12 narrative-driven expeditions, settlers of the “endzone” will fly to four unknown destinations far beyond their usual borders in search of other displaced survivors, new food items, and brand new building blueprints, perfect for expanding settlements into (primitive) metropolises.
Key Features of Endzone’s “Distant Places” DLC Include:
A Story Untold: Experience 12 story-driven, large-scaled global expeditions that take you to four varied, yet unseen places of the world. Suited for only the most well-equipped adventurers, they offer uncertain but very rewarding outcomes.
Brick by Brick: Support and expand the settlement with new buildings by discovering blueprints during treacherous new expeditions
Beyond the Mysterious Beyond: Driven by an insatiable quest for knowledge and resources, settlers can take to the skies aboard their purpose-built hot air balloon in search of new opportunities
Exotic Treats: Give the gift of scurvy prevention, by letting settlers experience the unique tastes and merits of six all-new exotic seeds like coconuts and bananas
