Good news for players of The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation. Indie studio Supercube officially revealed the latest roadmap for this space survival sim, and for the remainder of the year, players can look forward to updates that's sure to make the gameplay experience even more exciting.

For example, one planned addition is a new vehicle called "The Bear," which is actually a rover with large wheels. This gives players an easy way to move from one point to another across the moon. Now, this isn't the Earth's moon but Jupiter’s Io, where the game is set.

New character classes are also planned for release this year and these are the Pilot, Engineer, and Engineer II. New station modules will be added as well which should let players diversify what they want to build. These are the hangar, command center, and emergency room.
