ICARUS: Week 70 Update Adds Two New Vegetables with Unique Perks

Week 70 Update
Week 70 Update Steam

Developer Rocketwerkz launched a new patch for its popular survival game ICARUS. The Week 70 update adds two new vegetables: the Kumara and the Rhubarb.

New Vegetables

Unlike the other vegetables in ICARUS, the new Kumara and Rhubarb can only be acquired by completing SMPL3 (Simplified Mission Prospector Liaison V3) missions. Not only that but it is also subject to RNG, meaning you’re not guaranteed to get missions with either vegetable as a reward. Anyway, use the Short Range Radio to receive an SMPL3 mission to get things started.

These new vegetables can be cooked into scrumptious meals which provide useful buffs. For example, the Shepherd's Roll, requiring pastry, Kumara, raw meat, and carrot, gives the following:

  • +150 max HP
  • +150 max stamina
  • +15% health regeneration
  • +15% melee attack speed
  • +15% projectile damage
  • +10% XP gain
