Players will be able to dive right back into MINTROCKET’s Dave the Diver with today’s free update to the game.
Included as part of this update are novel missions in the Blue Hole’s Glacial Area. Players will also be able to discover additional nighttime fish species, utilize crab and lobster traps (and enjoy a Lobster Party event), and unlock a powerful new event boss after collecting all Marinca.
A novel VIP customer, The Wandering Merchant, will also make an appearance. This mysterious fellow will provide new secret recipes and crops. In the case of crops, new farming automations and tools will give players the chance to have Sammy to help with tasks on the farm. These include setting up a chicken feed dispenser and egg storage box.
Finally, improvements have been made to Dave the Diver’s load times and performance, along with miscellaneous quality of life additions. Steam players can also collect new items from the Steam Points Shop, including trading cards, profiles, emojis, and badges.
