Against the Storm Gets New World Events and Major Adjustments

World Events Update Eremite Games

Eremite Games continues to develop on the foundation that it has set on the last major content patch of Against the Storm. This time, in the appropriately named World Events update, the company added five new world events that will surely give you a challenging yet rewarding time.

New World Events

Before anything, world events in Against the Storm are special points of interest on the map that prompt you to make a decision. Currently, these events reward you with additional embarkation goods, villagers, and even temporary buffs.

That said, in this update, the company added five new events:

  • The Gambler
  • Crashed Airship
  • Followers of the Forsaken Gods
  • Wandering Eremite
  • First Dawn Company Caravan

Besides that, Eremite Games added custom illustrations and sound effects to other world events, such as:

  • Hanged Viceroy
  • Commenda Contract
  • Obsidian Loremaster
  • Wandering Eremite
  • Stormbird Egg
  • Cloaked Wanderer

Notable Balancing Changes

This patch also made some pretty major adjustments. You will notice that the range of trade routes has increased by 50%, letting you trade with settlements as far as 15 tiles from your current location.

Additionally, ore deposits no longer spawn under resource nodes. This prevents these nodes from overlapping with each other, allowing you to farm them without issues.

You can find the other balancing adjustments below:

  • Added Leather as a possible bonus resource from trees in the Sealed Forest.
  • Increased the threshold at which the Resolve bonus triggers in the Guild's Welfare effect (in the Guild House) from 60 to 75 Amber.
  • Increased the number of spawned fertile soil tiles around haunted farm ruins (Haunted Small Farm and Haunted Herb Garden).
  • Slightly increased the Obelisk's spawn rate in small glades.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug with the bath House having the same sound effect as a Temple after selecting it.
  • Fixed an issue with the Twitch vote feature sometimes not connecting to chat correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with some individual fertile soil tiles being spawned under trees.
  • Fixed a typo in the Blightstorm tutorial and Encyclopedia entry.
  • Fixed a typo in the Seal tooltip in the Embarkation Panel.
  • Fixed an issue with the "sell Ancient Tables" Order objective showing an empty "obtained by" text description.
  • Fixed a double negative in the description of the Sacrament of the Flame effect.
  • Fixed an incorrect description of the Procrastination Prestige modifier in Ukrainian.

So, are you going to conquer the new world events in Against the Storm?
