To start things off, we just released a free expansion introducing a ton of new content!! We have conniving bots adding spice to both online and offline modes, new arena’s, more than 30 new weapons, updated image effects, and lots of quality of life changes waiting for you as Marooners Strikes Back!
Also, by popular player demand, we made sure you can now select a linear play mode so that you only play one minigame at once.
Along with the free expansion already doubling the content of Marooners, we made some extra goodies too for the occasion; a special 9 song original soundtrack by Dave van Luttervelt and five exclusive weapons, available as Deluxe DLC or combined with the base game in a special bundle.
We also have big news for all you pirates that are stranded on console (pun definitely intended there, much console love). Later this year we are releasing Marooners and all the new content on both PS4 and Xbox One!
Next Thursday will see the release of a huge free expansion for Marooners!
Headline features include heartless pirate bots who are always ready to fill out games or provide competition if you want to play alone, a massive pile of new weapons (double the number!) and other improvements to things like the lobby system.
Now, that’s not all – we have more gameplay content yet to announce, so watch this space!
We're still hard at work on the big Marooners update. We've created about 20-30 new weapons and have a lot of work done on AI and lobby/connection improvements. Above is a preview of a lobby system overhaul, this should help address all issues and confusion when setting up any type of match.
To recap the contents of this update: "Our main focus is the issue of when no other players are online to play with. By adding AI and changing game flow(lobby) and possibly even game mode setup we'll make sure you can always play and more people will stick around in online sessions. Last but not least, we'll also be adding some extra content!"
Thanks for all your ongoing support, please keep spreading the word :)! Join our Discord chat if you want to get the latest scoop about this update from the developers directly.
Edit: Just to clarify, this is not an April fools. This update is coming for real. Sorry for the bad timing!
Now that some time has passed since the official Steam launch we've taken the opportunity to evaluate what Marooners could improve upon best. Thanks to your feedback on the Steam forums we have a very clear picture of what we want to address.

All of this will be released on Steam Q3 2017. Your feedback for this update is very welcome on the Steam forums.
Last week we officially launched Marooners and we're very happy with the results and support so far, thank you!
With the help of your feedback we've addressed the most important requests: You can now switch server regions to play with friends on a much faster connection. Furthermore various bugs have been fixed. Lastly we continue the free steam key offer, but have raised the unlock requirement to two hours for new players.
Added new server selections. Default is America (as before), but you can now manually switch to EU, Asia or Australia based servers under the multiplayer options
The free steam key now unlocks after 2 hour of gameplay, however, all existing users only need to play 1 hour (although the in-game text will still mention 2 hours)
