Haarlem, Netherlands-based indie game publisher and developer Gamious has announced the release of a free multiplayer update for its popular oil drilling sim Turmoil, now available for PC on Steam. Millions of Turmoil fans will now be able to challenge each other to become the best oil entrepreneur.
The multiplayer mode is a completely new and more compact map, where instead of just playing as NPCs, players will now fight each other. Players will be able to join a random game against up to three other players, or start their own game with friends.
The same areas and technology development as the main game will be used. It is also possible to start the game against only one other player, where the remaining free slots will be filled with NPCs.
“Since the launch of Turmoil, players have been asking for multiplayer. After releasing the “The Heat is On” DLC campaign and porting the game to other platforms and mobile devices, we finally got there. We’re excited to offer this free update to our players, if only because we can’t wait to take part in the competition ourselves!” said Jos Bowman, Creative Director of Gamious. “The Turmoil franchise has been around for many years and is still going strong. The release of the multi-user update will definitely not be the last. Work on new content has already begun, and next year we will share interesting news with you!”
