Team17 has released the Farming Update for the console version of The Survivalists – the survival co-op experience set in The Escapists universe.
The update brings crops to the islands, combat improvements, and other changes that have been requested by the community.
Not only can you grow your own crops, monkeys can be taught to help harvest them via the Monkey Mimic system. Combat has been adjusted to allow for more control over the direction of attacks for more fluid fighting.
“The update also includes new dyeing and weapon benches, a grindstone for weapon improvements, net and fish traps, a refuse pit to destroy items, and new water and cosmetic features.”
No word yet as to when this update may be making its way to the mobile phone version of the game.
