STOCKHOLM — November 3 — Paradox Interactive and Iceflake Studios today released Shattered Hope, the second expansion for their survival colony builder, Surviving the Aftermath. This expansion builds upon the game’s world with the Shattered Moon calamity, adding both the ability to boost resource production and the task of maintaining survivors’ hope. Surviving the Aftermath: Shattered Hope is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC at a suggested retail price of 9.99 USD / 7.99 GBP / 9.99 EUR. In Shattered Hope, the Moon is destroyed and pieces of it descend to the Earth’s surface. This disaster has a silver lining in the form of moon rock deposits, which can be gathered to increase resource production. Survivors must also come together to find hope to persevere, or else they will be plagued by anguish. Balance resources and survivors’ resolve in this human nature-centered expansion to Surviving the Aftermath’s colony management gameplay.
Surviving the Aftermath: Shattered Hope Key Features:
Face the Moonfall and use it to your advantage with the new Building Boost mechanic The Moon is shattered in the sky and its fragments are crushing down on Earth leaving behind them devastation - but also moon rock deposits. You can refine lunar fragments and obtain lunar dust which will be used to increase the production of your buildings for a limited time. This new building boost mechanic is called overtime.
Keep your hopes up, and feast! Hope is a new global value that decreases over time and when catastrophes happen in the game. If kept too low for too long, it will trigger a new condition called anguish that, if left untreated, may turn your colonists hostile. So, keep your hope as high as possible by holding feasts at the new colony square building.
New production chain: take care of your colonists When colonists experience anguish, you can help them by building a trauma center where they will heal. They will recover faster thanks to a brand new medicine called antistress. To make it, you’ll have to grow raw resources on the mushroom farm, then refine them into the actual medicine in the med hut building.
