Last Oasis is one of the more interesting survival MMOs that released this year. It lets players wonder through a dying planet using impressive wooden ship structures. To stay alive, players must look for resources, fight off threats, and stay away from the blistering sun. \n \nUnfortunately, it didn't have the smoothest launch. Server issues have caused a lot of problems for gamers, so much so that they were eventually taken down. Now it seems like the game has a little more momentum behind it. There's even a new update that just went live. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=6Yp6kvi7tRA \n \nTitled the Volcanic update, this patch adds a new map to the open-ended world. As if miles of desert weren't enough, now players will have to brave volcanic ash, lava, and rocky structures that go on for miles. \n \nBased off the cinematic shots and visuals in the trailer announcement for this update, the environments seem pretty harsh. You'll have to be even more on guard if you wish to survive the new perils that await in Last Oasis. \n \nThat's not all. The Volcanic update also adds a new creature called the killin. They resemble dragons, boasting large wings and a presumably veracious appetite for human flesh. According to patch notes, they're attracted to walkers. Players will thus have to be very careful when traveling around these volcanic regions. \n \nThey aren't just to be viewed as threats, though. You can use a grapple hook to catch a ride. Seems like a pretty decent way of traveling around these environments while you plan your next move. Just be careful. If you upset them, the killin can become even more dangerous. They're not creatures to be messed with by the looks of things. \n \nLastly, the new region is adding new weapons for players to craft. That should give you a little more motivation to brave these environment and creature threats lurking about. \n \nThe Volcanic update seems pretty noteworthy and capable of making Last Oasis a better survival experience overall. The game didn't have the smoothest launch, but it looks like the developer has it back on the right path. That's promising for those who've stuck around to see what improvements could be made. \n \nThe game hasn't been out for very long, so it still has plenty of room to grow and become something truly extraordinary. That's particularly true if the developer keeps these updates going and refines gameplay as best they can.
