Raft: The Final Chapter Now Available

Raft The Final Chapter
Raft The Final Chapter Steam

Raft is a game that takes you on an epic yet perilous journey across the vast sea. You can use a hook to gather debris and other resources, which you can use to improve your floating home, craft weapons, and make crop plots. Of course, a man-eating shark will occasionally be present in the vicinity that will eat you at a moment’s notice if you’re not careful.

Recently, Raft received its biggest patch ever called The Final Chapter, telling you the grand finale of the Raft storyline. Also, with this update, the game leaves Steam Early Access because the developers feel that it no longer needs the title.

New Locations

So, what does The Final Chapter have to offer? Well, it delivers three new destinations for you to find and explore. The first is Varuna Point - a place once deemed as the salvation for the elite but was ultimately abandoned because of the unforgiving sea.

The second is Temperance, a place covered in snow and is situated above water. It is home to a reactor built in hopes of addressing the problem of the rising oceans. After the reactor malfunctioned, most people fled for their survival but there are still those hoping to restore the reactor someday.

There is a third place that the developers want you to find on your own. Perhaps doing the new story missions will help give you some clues to its whereabouts.
