Forageris arguably too easy for its own good, but HopFrog is raising the stakes with the newly-released Combat update on Steam. Along with endgame tasks like an endless enemy-filled realm called The Void and two new gear tiers (Void and Cosmic), the update also adds buildable railroads – and pets!
I went into this grinding game looking for a chill way to unwind, and it delivered on that front. It always feels like you're accomplishing something. But once you run out of things to craft and buy, that's it.
This new update is combat-focused – you can expect bosses and even common foes to put up more of a fight – but there are also across-the-board improvements that'll affect all players.
Here's what stood out to me in the patch notes:
The Combat update hasn't made its way to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions of Forager yet, so if that's where you're at, hang tight. I skipped the initial Steam release and waited for the Switch port – it's great! If you're in the market, this jells as a lower-key supplement to Stardew Valley.
There's plenty more content on the way, too. HopFrog hopes to continue "for years to come."
