What’s new?

Travel around the map in search of amazing tales. With Collectible Stories you’ll learn more about the world of Gold Rush: The Game. There’s also a ridi-cow-lously nice reward for such effort.
More breakable parts = more challenges on your way to becoming the richest miner in Alaska. The threat is even more real, as from now on it is possible to see a “Game Over” screen, when you fail to pay your debts.
But that’s not everything! See changelog below for more info.


Open Beta branch is a voluntary option and it may not reflect the quality and content of actual Update 1.4.4.
Save files from Open Beta version won’t be transferred to a live build.
