Update 1.3 is LIVE!

 

New free content, bug fixes, and significant performance upgrade!

 

Hello Prospectors,

We proudly present the 1.3 Update, which includes:

  • New equipment.
  • New features.
  • New lacquers.
  • Performance upgrade.
  • Bug fixes.

New Equipment

Gold Nuggetator – save precious time by washing multiple miner’s mosses (big and small) at once.

New Water Pumps – we introduce new pumps, adapted to the changing needs of the gold mining operation. Depending on the scale of your activities, choose from Big Water Pump, Big Electric Water Pump, or the top class Big Electric Water Pump.

New features

Online stores – with Online Equipment Store and Online Machines Store available on your laptop, you can make your life easier and spend more time digging gold instead of shopping.

Rotating objects – not only for perfectionists. Additional precision will allow you to create your perfect setup.

Claim reset – now that you’ve gained experience, you can start fresh and use your know-how to run your gold mining operation more effectively.
Important! Machines from the claim will go back to the Shop, but Equipment will be lost.

And more – Excavator’s mouse digging mode, Notification’s tab on the laptop, Season 1 trophy, and other are waiting for you in Gold Rush: The Game. Go check it now!
