The World Expansion III free content update gives the players access to:

  • Fungal Swamp biome – a complex ecosystem localized in a vast river delta. The warm temperatures and high humidity make it a perfect place for mushroom growth.
  • Two new Survival Mode scenarios taking place in the new biome. Fungal Forest map is a classic Riftbreaker Survival experience – you explore the map, fight for resources, and build a sprawling base. The second scenario, Fungal Swamp, takes place on a flooded map with limited building space and limited resources, encouraging changes in your approach to gameplay.
  • New gameplay mechanics: build new, specialized buildings and defensive towers on water, cross pipelines with two different liquids using pipeline junctions, and feed a special neutral creature – Poogret – for gameplay rewards.
  • Multiple new species of creatures, unlike anything you’ve seen before. Fight hordes of fearsome monsters lurking around every corner.
  • More than 70 new research items and technologies to further enhance your base and Mr. Riggs’ abilities.
  • New weapons and defensive towers. Build powerful weapons that will obliterate anyone threatening your base. That includes brand-new, massive, community-inspired 3×3 defensive towers with insane firepower.
  • Numerous quality-of-life improvements, performance optimizations, and balancing changes.

Purchasing The Riftbreaker: Heart of the Swamp paid DLC additionally offers:

  • Experience an exciting new branch of the Story Campaign taking place in the Fungal Swamp biome.
  • Investigate the massive Great Mushroom Tree – a 100-meter-tall fruit body of a massive fungus that looms over the entire biome.
  • Expand your Campaign Mode technology tree by researching unique technologies that can only be acquired in this biome.
  • Collect information on new creatures, vegetation, and other curiosities found only in this underground environment.
  • Bring the Great Mushroom Tree back to its former glory by helping it eliminate the parasites that seem to be swarming it.
  • Adapt your base-building methods to make the most out of the limited building space in the flooded Swamp.
  • Face fearsome enemies that will test your skills in all kinds of combat.
