Studio Wildcard has unveiled its roadmap for new maps in Survival Ascended. Remember, each map is free with the base game. However, they also offer small DLCs that not only support the release of new maps but also provide additional content, enhancing your gaming experience.

However, you need to know that they delayed the release of The Center map and Shastasaurus dinosaur multiple times due to the map and the new dino not being ready for release.
