Assemble Entertainment and developer Gentlymad Studios confirmed a 17th May, 2022, Steam and GOG launch date for Distant Places. The all-new Endzone: A World Apart DLC brings new story missions, new buildings for settlement expansion, exotic new food items, and most importantly, a means for aerial travel.
Along with the release date announcement, the developers have revealed a batch of never-before-seen screenshots (available below). These images showcase the new environments awaiting players. In Distant Places, exotic, bountiful lands beyond the safety of the settlement’s borders are waiting to be explored. Life in the settlement finally began to flourish in the preceding DLC, Prosperity. Now survivors are ready to set off on an air-balloon journey to discover the “distant places” their legends speak of.
Distant Places takes place centuries after settlers managed to regain a foothold on the surface of Earth. After having been in subterranean bunkers for over 150 years, the humans escaped the radioactive hellscape on the ground above. Featuring 12 narrative-driven expeditions, settlers of the “endzone” will fly to four unknown destinations far beyond their usual borders. Their journey in search of other displaced survivors, new food items, and brand new building blueprints. The results could be perfect for expanding settlements into (primitive) metropolises.
