Against the Storm, a thrilling dark fantasy city builder game, is getting ready to leave early access next month with a game-changing 1.0 update. Publisher Hooded Horse has recently announced that the official release date is set for December 8th. Excitingly, Microsoft has also secured Eremite Games’ roguelite city builder for PC Game Pass, guaranteeing a larger audience for this captivating game.
In Against the Storm, players embark on a thrilling journey to rebuild civilization in the midst of apocalyptic rains, taking on the role of the Queen’s Viceroy. Leading a diverse group of survivors including humans, beavers, lizards, foxes, and harpies, players must reclaim the wilderness and secure a future for the remnants of society.
One of the most intriguing additions to Against the Storm’s full release is the introduction of a new game mode called Queen’s Hand. This mode presents a unique challenge for experienced players, with specific rules and rewarding gameplay. Players will face their toughest obstacle, as they will have only one Cycle to reforge the Adamantine Seal.

Hooded Horse has worked tirelessly to introduce new features, species, and mechanics through bi-weekly content updates. Notable additions include the introduction of the Fox people, exciting endgame enhancements, and revamped strategy layers and Blightstorms.
