New Content: Weapons, Vehicles and Map Expansion in Deadside Update 0.5.0
New vehicles: The first big addition in Deadside’s upcoming 0.5.0 update is boats. The new watercraft are hovercrafts rather than traditional motorboats. Each of these boats can transport multiple players and must be fueled and maintained. In addition, the boats are server-side, which makes for better performance. Another item closely related to the boats are new islands in the north of the map.
These are especially easy to reach with the new watercraft. On the islands, there is a larger harbor area, an oil depot, as well as some larger military areas that don’t exist anywhere else on the map. Some new assets have also been added especially for the new areas. Thus, you will have to get used to the new environment a bit first.

Map expansion: Together with the boats, the developers of Deadside have also expanded the map. You can now explore 2 new islands with your boat. One island is located in the northwest of the mainland and one in the northeast. One of the islands can be reached via a bridge, but it doesn’t offer good cover.
New items: In the new Deadside update you can now drink water from wells. Apart from that, you can now also find packaged water bottles. There are also new items that you can get when harvesting bushes. To do this, you need to cut a bush with your knife.
Adjustments & Improvements in Deadside Update 0.5.0
Adjustments to the economy: the developers have revised the entire market structure for the new patch. You can now buy high-tier loot in the safezones. In turn, everything has become more expensive (gosh, it’s just like the real thing!). The currency should thus have a greater value for players, even in late-game. To balance this out a bit, the rewards of various PvE events have also been adjusted.
Other: In addition, the corpses of defeated players and AI enemies are now highlighted. This helps immensely to locate the just killed enemies in tall grass, for example. Because nothing is more annoying than winning a fight and being caught by someone else looking at the lifeless body of your victim like a startled chicken. Last but not least, the developers have added a full-screen window mode and fixed some bugs.
