V1.6.7 - Multiplayer Beta & August Frontier

Hi everyone!

[h2]Multiplayer Beta[/h2]
If you've always wanted to play The Colonists against your friends then good news, multiplayer is coming! There's a beta now available for anyone to try, just switch to the 'multiplayer' beta on Steam. The beta is still in development and is currently PvP only. Co-op modes along with further gameplay tweaks to be added soon. Please let me know any comments, feedback or bug reports in our Discord server or to [email protected] - thanks!

[h2]August Frontier[/h2]
This month the brewery bots have gotten creative and brewed up a special concoction - chocolate stout! This beer is so powerful it can power L3 miners and lumberjacks instead of L3 Energy. It's a race to mine and sell salt, quartz and gold - good luck!

[h2]Featured Workshop Maps[/h2]
Here are this month's five specially selected player-created maps - go check them out and let the creators know if you enjoyed them!
