The Muckingham Files (Update 1.2) – Coming April 18th 2023

Players may remember the mysterious Mauka Aitu Desert from jobs in the base game, where they were tasked with cleaning an ancient statue, an imposing monument and an old steam train. Well, it’s not just full of aged relics but also home to some more advanced technology – namely a Solar Water Plant and a huge Satellite Dish. It’s down to you to dust off all that sand, for a satisfyingly sparkly finish.

A short reprieve from the dry, dusty desert will transport players back to the lush green of Muckingham’s recreation ground, where a filthy food truck is spoiling the view. Once you’ve finished, it’ll be the shimmering centrepiece of the park.

For those looking to brush up on local lore, the pre-existing bonus jobs have had new stories added that supplement (whilst not continuing) the main story – bringing them in line with this update and any future updates in the Muckingham universe. Replay them for more tales and trivia from your favourite filthy town.

Hop in the van, we’re going on a road trip! Throughout 2023, we’ll be taking you to places near and far in a range of Special Packs and updates that traverse Muckingham and beyond. Check out the roadmap below for some hints of what’s ahead, which will be updated with each announcement.
