New Update for The Other 99 Increases Difficulty & Improves Performance

Publisher Deck 13 and developers Burning Arrow have announced a new update for The Other 99 that dramatically improves the Steam Early Access title.

Based on the feedback received from players, this update to fixes many of the concerns that were expressed while also making The Other 99 a much more challenging experience.

Here are some of the improvements:

  • New Starting Area
  • Massively reworked Balancing
  • Better interaction for survival with the world (e.g. now you can drink water from rivers, etc.)
  • Rework of the Survival Guide (Hunger & Thirst related)
  • Overhauled the island with new props populating the environment
  • Rework of the combat

Burning Arrow has also released a new trailer showcasing The Other 99’s backstory and showing the intensity of exploring the dark and unnerving island, along with some of the fierce combat and menacing locations featured throughout the game.

We played The Other 99 in January and while our first impressions of The Other 99 were mostly positive, Burning Arrow is clearly dedicated to making the necessarily improvements to make The Other 99 a quality title on release.

The Other 99 is available on Steam Early Access for £14.99.
