Against the Storm: New Cornerstones Added in Camps Update Part 2

Eremite Games deployed the last major patch for Against the Storm not long ago. The Camps Update Part 2 is not as big as the previous patches, but it does offer some new stuff to keep the game interesting.

Cornerstones in Against the Storm are perks that provide players with random advantages. Only one cornerstone can be active per year, so it’s always good to choose the best one from the get-go as it will dictate how the game unfolds later on.

That said, the Camps Update Part 2 introduces four new cornerstones to the game. The first one is called Zhorg’s Secret Ingredient, a cornerstone allowing players to gain 10 Skewers for every 10 Pickled Goods they produce.

The second is called Secure Trail and its effect makes newcomers arrive quicker by 25%. The third one is Stormwalker Tax and choosing this cornerstone will enable players to get 15 Amber each time a new group of villagers arrives at their settlement. However, its downside is that all of the player’s stored Amber will be gone when choosing this cornerstone. Is the trade-off worth it? That is for the players to decide.

The last cornerstone of the bunch is Economic Migration. Newcomers arrive 15% quicker for every two levels of standing the player has with other settlements in trade routes. Unlike Secure Trail, this cornerstone is mediocre early on but ramps up really well in the late game.

Camps Update Part 2 brought some bug fixes as well:

  • Fixed a bug with the Cursed Royal Woodlands not spawning Copper Ore deposits.
  • Fixed a bug with some particles on the World Map not being turned off on slower PCs.
  • Fixed a bug with multiple visual effects (smoke, fire, particles) not being turned off when the “disable complex effects” option was checked.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to destroy a mine during its construction (and broke the save at the same time).
  • Fixed a bug with camps upgraded during construction being blocked.
  • Fixed a bug that made it possible to trade for Amber the player didn’t have (and therefore taking the Amber amount to the negative).
  • Fixed an issue with the first step of the tutorial breaking when camera movement keys were pressed during the loading screen.
  • Fixed a bug with some glades opening by themselves.
  • Fixed a bug with the Finders Keepers Forest Mystery incorrectly stating that trade routes must be started during Drizzle.
  • Fixed a bug with the Blight Extractor perk showing incorrect progress values in its tooltip.
  • Fixed a bug with the Trader Panel always displaying “Bandit Camp” as the reason for trade being blocked.
  • Fixed an issue with the Stormforged version of the Back to Nature perk not showing up on the HUD.

Against the Storm Camps Update Part 2 is available on PC.
