One of the most popular survival games on Steam is now getting its biggest update yet

The survival game Raft is not only known for being a relatively easy-going representative of the genre, but is also one of the most popular games of its kind. Now the game is finally “finished” and is getting its biggest update so far. We at MeinMMO summarize.

What kind of game is this? The survival adventure Raft started on May 23, 2018 in Early Access on Steam. Since then, it has continued to receive new updates and has become increasingly popular among fans. A whopping 93% of the current 148,119 user reviews are positive, which puts it in the ranks of the most popular survival games on the platform.

You start in Raft with nothing and you have to build a life from there and if possible not die. Animals and even sharks pose a danger to you, because you spend a large part of your playing time on the eponymous raft.

You can always build up this raft and turn it into your floating base, with which you can move through the world and take care of yourself. The graphic style of Raft is colorful and inviting and exudes a little calm.

My colleague Maik Schneider explained what makes the game so good.

There are numerous new features and an end to the story of the survival game that fans have been waiting for for a long time. There is also the following new content:

  • New locations, including a city under water, a village in the snow, and a high-tech city in a dome, and even skyscrapers
  • New playable characters
  • Lots of new Quality of Life improvements
  • New enemy types

Otherwise, you can just expect more of what made the game great before.

Is Raft leaving Early Access? Although the update completes the story and brings many new features, it is currently not known whether the survival game will also leave Early Access on Steam. It is conceivable, but not yet officially confirmed.

  • N0T_NOVA writes: “I’m so hyped! Raft is an amazing game with a cool narrative and a great progression system. One of the best games to play with friends.”
  • Matt Voelker writes, “I started way back when the radio tower was the end of the story. It’s been a long road and a fun outing. It’s always nice to see that a game that you initially gave it a chance makes it to the end. It feels like I bet on the right horse.”
  • OPolo704 says: “Let’s go! Raft is one of the best experiences I’ve had with video games. I’m so excited for the final chapter and will grind it so hard!”
