Every since hitting the Steam world in Early Access earlier in 2020, Last Oasis has ground out a bit of a name for itself. The mostly positive recent reviews over there totally confirm that statement. Now though the team behind it – they of Donkey Crew – are looking to push on over to the console scene, hoping to deliver the sandbox survival title to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, with full cross-platform support in early 2021.
Q1 2021 is the exact window that Donkey Crew are aiming for, and it should be around that time that Xbox players – on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S – get the opportunity to witness what has taken the PC world by storm. With cross-platform support in house, this should see positive vibes for Last Oasis, especially as it has already amassed a large player base and thousands of positive Steam user reviews since its launch into Steam Early Access.
The critically-acclaimed Sandbox Survival is being fully optimised for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S whilst updates on all platforms will also be synchronised, moving forward.
Alongside the Xbox announcement, Donkey Crew has also revealed today that Season 2 will begin in Last Oasis from November 22nd 2020 and even though this means a full server wipe, all the latest features have been tested rigorously by the Last Oasis community via the game’s Beta Branch on Steam and have been greeted with rave user reviews.
If this is the first time you are hearing about Last Oasis, then let us set out some facts. Last Oasis is set on a devolved, post-apocalyptic future Earth, one in which a cataclysmic event has halted the planet’s rotation, splitting it into two extreme and deadly environments. Only a narrow region between the burning and freezing halves of the planet can support life and it is here where the last human survivors must outrun the scorching Sun to survive in a massive Open World.
In order to keep moving, the remnants of humanity have built nomadic machines, and a walking city called the Flotilla. Nomads traverse the world on Walkers: wooden, wind-powered land ships, inspired by Theo Jansen’s amazing strandbeests, that can be adapted for travel, transportation, harvesting, and combat. The remnants of humanity survive only by sending unwilling Nomads into the passing oases to face warring clans and gather the necessary resources to keep moving. Not many return alive.
If that sounds like your bag and you’re limited to the Xbox eco-system, then come Q1 2021, Last Oasis could well be something you are getting involved in. Hit up the trailer below if you wish to know more. We’ll be sure to follow up with further developmental details as and when they drop.
