Week 59 Update Steam

Developer Rocketwerkz deployed a new patch for ICARUS recently. The Week 59 Update is a godsend for those who use the dedicated server feature because of the many bug fixes and improvements the company has made.

The dedicated server list gets refreshed automatically so that new servers pop up as they appear. Furthermore, the max server results that show up on the list is raised to 10,000, giving players a boatload of servers to choose from.

Additionally, those who like to play ICARUS locally will be happy to know that there’s now a LAN feature for local connections, complete with its own “LAN” tab.

The Week 59 Update also brings a plethora of bug fixes, especially those that impact the core gameplay. For one, the issue with the Healing Boost Module not always applying the aura that helps nearby prospectors heal from afflictions faster has been fixed. Moreover, the annoying bug that caused the sort options on containers to not work as intended has been resolved.
