Dear Viceroys!

You can now download the new update for Against the Storm - Royal Woodlands Demo. It’s most likely the last update for the demo as we’re entirely focused on the early access version which releases on October 18.

What’s new:

  • Stone Roads
  • Perks & Modifier inspired by Community Brainstorm
  • Minor balance changes
  • Fixes & improvements

You can check the full changelog below. But first, catch up with the latest news from gamescom 2021!

Release Date Trailer & Pre-Purchase

Against the Storm appeared on this year’s gamescom as part of IGN Awesome Indies Show and Indie Arena Booth. We prepared a new trailer for this occasion:

The trailer features the revamped Marshlands biome, new buildings, and dangerous threats, such as Wildfire and Drainage Mole. We also included settlements created by our Discord community as part of the Screenshot Contest.

The game will be released on October 18 this year in Early Access on Epic Games Store. You can pre-purchase the game already and save 10%:


The early access version will unlock for you on October 18. The World Map resources and Upgrades which you acquire in the demo will be available in the full game.


  • Added Stone Roads - they can be picked in the Embark panel once you reach level 3
  • Added new World Map modifier: Barren Lands - there is no fertile soil on the map (Community Brainstorm idea inspired by Aarklight)
  • Added new perk: Back to Nature - kills 2 villagers every Drizzle, but you get more crops from fertile soil (Community Brainstorm idea by Aarklight)
  • Added new perk: Sick Trees - increases woodcuting speed but there’s a chance Woodcutter won’t bring any Wood (Community Brainstorm idea by Epidj)
  • Added new perk: Fragrant Roots - gives Incense for Root yields
  • Rebalanced Short Temper perk - it now removes 3 Impatience Points for every 1 Reputation Point gained
  • Rebalanced Fuel - they now give slightly less Resolve
  • Corrected several texts
  • Multiple fixes and improvements

The current version number is: Beta v0.8.24R

We only added a few perks from the Community Brainstorm but you can definitely expect more of them in the early access version. We just don’t want to spoil you too much ;)
