Reparlons brièvement de Turmoil, petit jeu sur le thème original des barons du pétrole pour mentionner la sortie il y a plusieurs semaines déjà d’une première extension offrant une nouvelle campagne et surtout des mécanismes supplémentaires pour forer encore plus, afin de pouvoir par exemple mieux exploiter le gaz naturel, mais aussi aller jusqu’à trouver et utiliser du magma. Oui, de la lave en fusion dont l’intérêt conjugué au gaz et au pétrole est une des surprises de ce DLC, qui semble-t-il globalement offrira surtout un défi un peu plus chaud à gérer.

Update #41 – The Heat Is On!
DLC Day has arrived!
The new expansion pack: “The Heat Is On” is now live! Additionally, the Turmoil base game received some juicy updates and the option for character modding!
The update contains the following:
New campaign, featuring:
– New characters to play. Greenhorns Isabelle and Kai join the oil business and could use your knowledge of pumping and drilling.
– A new village is being built in this area and its mayor wants you in on the spoils. Meet Maeve, Jack and Philip who will help you make the most of your land ownership.
– Three new areas to explore containing magma, a new way to control the oil and gas supplies in a level. Unlock its full potential by buying Jack’s upgrades in the village.
– A completely overhauled stock auction replacing the Dutch Auction of the original campaign. – Overbid your opponents with outlandish piles of cash, or let them fight it out between each other while you bide your time.
– Anthony has started a treasure collection in the Underground. Dig up the treasures found in the land and he will help you out. Missed a spot? Buy the missing parts of your collection on the Treasures Marketplace.
– The professionals are back in the tough as nails expert version of The Heat Is On. Don’t even think about saving up money, you will be glad if you beat them by an inch!
New in-game features (Spoilers! Hover for details)
– Connecting your pipes to magma will heat up your pipe network (requires Heat Conductivity upgrade, available in area 1).
– Heated pipes have increased oil flow depending on their heat level.

When playing the Weekly Challenge you get a small introduction about the area that you are playing in.
You can now buy village upgrades using enter.
Closing a Mayor’s Tip no longer directly exits to the village, instead it brings you back to the overview.
You can now close joints before they have finished building, to make it easier to plan ahead and not spill any gas. Re-opening a joint before it is finished will refund the costs.
Upgrades bought by rivals are now more clearly displayed.
Improved tooltip contrast in the land auction and upgrades scroll.
The village shops will now display a “sold out” text when there are no more upgrades to be bought, including future unlocks.
Several localization improvements.
Decreased the minimum and increased the maximum amount of possible oil, gas and rock for the Weekly Challenge.
Fixed that sound and visual effects were not properly played when selling gas.
Fixed that the game would crash if noone made a bid in the stock auction because the AI was out of money.
Happy drilling! And stay tuned, we’ll soon be back with news about a new challenge game mode!
