Should I play Stormworks: Industrial Frontier in 2024?

The good

It seems that fans of the game were excited to receive a new update with additional content, such as a new island to explore. The game delivers exactly what it promises, which is important for some players.

The bad

Some players have expressed disappointment with the lack of significant changes or improvements to the game, considering the price point of $9.99. They feel that it should have been released as a free update rather than a paid DLC.


Based on the reviews, it seems that the game still has its enthusiasts who appreciate the new content. However, I’m forced to conclude that this update might not be worth the price tag for everyone. If you’re a huge fan of the game and are desperate for more content, it might be worth the cost. But for others, especially those who are not as invested in the game, it’s better to wait for a free update or a more substantial DLC.
