Team17 released the Farming Update last week for console players of The Survivalists, the survival co-op experience set in The Escapists universe. Previously only available to PC players on Steam, the console update introduces crops, widespread improvements on the combat, and a whole host of changes following comprehensive and engaging community feedback.

The update lets players plant and harvest crops for resources (even rare ones) while new, dangerous plants can be grown as a defence mechanism. Monkeys can be taught to help with crops via the Monkey Mimic system, and there are new structures, recipes, and items to aid your arable adventure, including a faster raft to make island-hopping more expedient. Combat as a whole has been overhauled too, giving greater control over direction of attacks for more fluid fighting. Lunge and knockback changes have also been made, and stamina has been altered, leaving players less likely to be worn out during combat and harvesting resources.

Let's take a look at the new Farming Update Trailer!

The update also includes new dyeing and weapon benches, a grindstone for weapon improvements, net and fish traps, a refuse pit to destroy items, and new water and cosmetic features. For a full list of changes included with the Farming Update, check out the patch notes.

The Survivalists' Farming Update is available on consoles and PC!
