In Wayward, there is a large focus on simulation, survival and openness. There are no classes; there are no levels. Progression of your character depends on individual skill and stat gains by your interactions with items or objects in the world. You are free to play and explore the game in any fashion you wish.
Wayward will continue to grow, expand, and evolve over time to open up new modes of play, add depth and complexity, add content, and further refine the systems presented. You are free to come a long for the ride as we try to make this game a truly unique experience through our iteration and through your feedback.

Today we are releasing what is most likely the last minor patch in the 2.10.x series. We have been working on this release while also working on our next major update to the game, which is why this took a bit longer to get out. We thought it might be better if we do the last minor releases like this going forward so there's less of a gap in between releases. There's plenty of quality of life improvements here and some substantial balance changes among all the bug fixes.Read More
