Following the launch of The Pale Reach last year, The Iron Rig is the game’s second premium expansion and will see players revisiting every area from the base game with renewed purpose.

The Iron Rig expansion adds a new tier of fishing equipment, as well as new characters to interact with, new hazards to overcome, and new world events and lore to uncover.
