The Swedish survival game Raft sails out of early access



Raft is being developed by Swedish Redbeet Interactive and has been in early access since 2018. Now, however, it is over, because it reached version 1.0, with its largest update ever.

The update adds above all, the last chapter of the game's plot, and also three new places to visit: Varuna Point, which was a building where the world elite would seek protection, but which was abandoned before construction was completed; Temperance, which is a snow-covered area where the water has not reached; and a third, secret area where we will face the final challenge of the game.

The plot has also been fine-tuned to flow better, and now there is also voice acting. In addition, there are new enemies, characters to play as, clothes, trade items and things to build. The game is sold with a 15 percent discount until July 8.
