Last month Reality MagiQ shared their 2023 Dysterra roadmap with fans, revealing that new content will be coming each month. Alongside new weapons, vehicles and housing features, Dysterra will introduce two new underground areas for survivors to explore in Season 2.
The bunker is a free-for-all space where survivors will face off in tense skirmishes to loot new resources.
The Hyena Den
The Hyena Den is a new private instance dungeon where players won’t encounter other survivors. Here you’ll be free to gather resources and improve your gear without threat from other players, though there are still enemy NPCs to watch out for.
Don’t miss out on the latest Dysterra updates by signing up via Twitter, Discord, and the game’s Steam community page. You can also find out more about the game via its official website.
Out now on Steam, Dysterra is a survival shooter that takes place on a destroyed future Earth. With the discovery of TerraSite, mankind has made rapid progress but, in return, their homeworld faces annihilation. In Dysterra, players need to strategize in order to stay alive, securing food, gear, and shelter to survive on a hostile planet, forging weapons, armor, and potential alliances with other players.
Fans of the genre — and games such as Rust — will enjoy Dysterra’s survival systems, from item crafting to its intuitive base-building. However, unlike some other survival games, Dysterra eliminates those tedious barriers players of the genre often complain about. You’ll start each game with a sidearm and rifle, crucially cutting down the time it takes to engage with enemy players and AI. Your high-tech machine arm will also significantly speed up crafting and gathering resources, allowing players to focus on survival instead of time-consuming tasks. These design choices are aimed at keeping the action focused and accessible to newcomers who might be put off by some aspects of the survival genre.
