Hello, it’s Tia! I’m here to share a small update just before the holidays. ❄️️

Today’s update comes with a looong list of fixes. Loads of these were made with the help of our testers - a big ol’ hug and huge thank you for helping us squash those bugs! Now children are less likely to run headfirst into danger and bestowers will get the heck outta there if they’re breathing in poisonous gas. We also added a few tools to help out our modders and community translators do their thing. The changelog is below to read over.

If you want to keep playing on the previous version of 1.4, you can use the Steam beta branch "version-1.4.3563". To do this, r-click RimWorld in the Steam library, go to properties, open the betas tab, and select the version from the dropdown.

2022 was a wild and fantastic year for us at Ludeon Studios. We released RimWorld’s third expansion, ... Read more

Hi everyone. Valve has recently released their new recommended currency conversions for Steam games and many game studios are beginning to implement these.

We are planning to follow Valve’s recommendations and update some of our non-USD price conversions. (Note that none of our base USD prices will change - this is only about updating currency conversion rates.)

In most cases our prices will remain lower than what Valve recommends. The major currencies will generally see increases of 2-10% - this includes Euros, Chinese yuan, British pounds, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars,... Read more

Hello everyone!

It’s Tia - I’m back with update 1.3.3326 which brings full support for RimWorld on Steam Deck!

Before I get into the update, I wanted to share that our developer who was living in Ukraine is now safe in Germany. He’s staying with one of our former team members and we're doing what we can to help him get set up there. Thank you for all the kind comments and for thinking of our team. 💛

Today’s update makes the Deck controls more intuitive, refines the touchscreen interface, improves the UI and keyboard, and adds an easy way to access the Deck's controller config options.

The Steam Deck requires that we use a new version of the Steamworks API which breaks compatibility with a few mods. To prevent breakages, three weeks ago, ... Read more

Hi everyone, it’s Tia. We’ve released our Steam Deck update 1.3.3300 as a beta branch on Steam.
This update has full support for Steam Deck!

However, for that to work it has to use a new version of the Steamworks API, which will break mods that access Steamworks.

If you’re working on a mod that accesses Steamworks, please prepare to update to its new version to prevent breaking the game.

We are planning to release this version to everyone on Wednesday April 6 at around 5pm EST.

Players who want to use Steam Deck should also use this branch for now. Everything except a few mods should work.

To play this beta on Deck or PC: right-click RimWorld in your Steam library list, click Properties, then select the ‘betas’ tab. Select ‘steam_deck - Steam Deck update’ from the drop-down list. Your game should auto-update - if it doesn’t, restart Steam.

To share any feedback or bug reports from the beta, please join th... Read more
