Calling all Mechanics! 2020 is coming to a close and we’re here to end it on a
good note with a special devblog! Here are some of the things
we’ve been working on since the release of Scrap Mechanic’s
Survival Mode earlier this year.
To start, we have
been hard at work on the next chapter and we will be
announcing its official name at a later date. But until then,
here are some of the things we managed to liberate from the
Scrap HQ’s secret drawing board!
Going underground This new location includes new adventures and gameplay
options that we can’t wait to share with you! This new chapter
of Survival Mode adds new quests and NPCs that will take you
to the next stop in your journey: the mining island. For the
first time in Scrap Mechanic history, you will be delving deep
into the planet’s mines, to uncover new, big secrets! Here’s
a sneak peek into some features and concepts of the
underground that are currently in progress.
Trash Bot It’s a good thing Scrap Mechanic doesn’t come with
Smell-O-Vision! Introducing the biggest bot we’ve made so far:
the Trash Bot. This smelly clanker is the very first
boss of the game! Rumour has it that you can find it on the
Warehouse rooftop, collecting junk. If you do run into
him, you’d best have your spudgun at hand or you will end up
in the trash with the rest of the smelly produce!
Sticky wheels New update, new parts. And these wheels will be a lot
of fun! With the help of the new Sticky Wheels, you’ll be
putting together vehicles that can dig and drive in every
direction, so you can go deeper than any mechanic has ever
Red Guy A new challenger explodes into the
scene! It’s the latest addition to the Totebot family,
the Red Totebot: those canisters on its head explode on
contact, so make sure you keep this one at a distance. Pro
Tip: Try getting it with a few well-placed spud shots before
it gets too close for comfort.
Hot Chilis With great chili, comes great responsibility. This
plant is definitely going to bring the heat on you and your
farm! So make sure to give your base's defenses a boost
because those chilis sound like trouble! Just watch out for
the kind of bot it attracts. It sure looks like a handful.
Plasma Drill The basic drill is a great tool to attach to your
vehicle for digging, but it can’t break through some of the
tough layers of rock in the underground. Thankfully, it
looks like the devs have got you covered: introducing the
plasma drill; a new part for your vehicle! With its added
power and improved reach, you can bore through the pesky
underground bedrock. Did we forget to mention that it’s more
comfortable to use than the basic drill too?
Warehouse changes! It looks like the devs
are planning to update the Warehouse. They’ll be giving
it a bit of a rework, by changing a few things around and
adding some new elements. For example, parts that mechanics
find inside are not removable at this moment. However, they
will be after this update! But that’s not all: the new
Warehouse will be including additional quests and story
elements. Best watch out, because things are going to get
dangerous. A WARNING FROM THE DEVS: the new update might
cause the old warehouse key to turn into a circuit board. We
will be introducing a new warehouse key in its place when the
next chapter is out.
Wardrobe What’s an update without some
brand new threads for your Mechanic? The next chapter
will be introducing a lot of funny shirt designs, along with
some special rare outfits. For example, take a look at the
welder outfit that will be included in the next chapter:
all we’ve managed to slip under the devs’ noses so far,
Mechanics but remember: this is a just a sneak peek into the
mother load of content that the next chapter is going to
contain. The devs have a lot more irons in the fire and
they’ll be bringing them out in the following dev blog, so
stick around for more awesome news.
Happy Holidays Mechanics! We hope you have a creative
2021! See you next year!
