The Leviathan-class Ice Worm is ready to stalk you across the Arctic Spires as you explore the vast biome. Make use of your Thumper to distract the creature and escape quickly to avoid an aggressive encounter!
Due to continued community feedback, we’ve been working hard on bringing you a higher stakes introduction, as well as fleshing out the mid-game story. This Ice Worm update includes all-new, text-only dialog throughout. Voice overs will be coming in a future update.
Explore this new and vast frozen landscape, broken up by narrow crevices, tunnels, and huge spires of ice. But take care, though this area appears deserted you are certainly not alone!
Explore the impressive floating lilypads as you gather essential resources and encounter creatures like the Lily Paddler.

Don’t worry. This huge Leviathan-class creature can’t get to you from behind its frozen encasing. But just what was Alterra chipping away at the ice to discover…
You are not the only inhabitant of 4546B affected by the weather! As the climate changes from rain, to hail, to lightning, and more, Pengwings will react accordingly and take cover when needed.
