Update 4.0 is due out for the game with free content for APICO on Linux, Steam Deck, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the talented team of both ellraiser and TNgineers. Available on both Steam and Humble Store.

We have some good news for all of us who like APICO. This May, we’re getting the final free content update, and it’s packed with new features.

First up, on May 20th, Linux and Steam Deck players will receive Update 4.0: A Hive of Industry. This update also brings a fresh automation system, new events throughout the year, new items to craft, and—my favorite part—pets. Imagine having a tiny dinosaur as your companion.

APICO Update 4.0 – Release Date

There’s even more good news: a brand new soundtrack by Mothense will be available on Bandcamp starting May 7th. It’s perfect to set the mood while you explore all these updates. Details for its release on other platforms will come soon.

Let’s dive into some of the highlights of Update 4.0:

  • Automation Machines: You can now craft things like the Auto-sawmill and Auto-centrifuge, plus eight more machines, using the new Crystal Workbench. Get ready to make your beekeeping more efficient!
  • New Resource – Honeycore Crystals: With a new tool called the resonance meter, you can play a mini-game to find different types of crystals. These can be used to craft items like crystal chests and tools.
  • Pets: There are 16 new little friends to choose from. Whether it’s a tiny dinosaur or another adorable creature, you can have a companion on your adventures.
  • New Seasonal Events: Celebrate Hivemas in December and Hallowbeen in October with new decorations and items. You can even toggle these events on and off in the settings!

Plus, Update 4.0 also offers new quests, decorations, events, and bees. For those who dive deep, there’s a surprise behind the Hive Mother’s door for reaching 100% completion.

Stay tuned for more updates, and everything new is coming to APICO this May! Remember to mark your calendars for May 20th, and let’s enjoy these updates together. Coming to Linux, Steam Deck, Mac, and Windows PC. Still available on both Steam and Humble Store. Priced at $19.99 USD / £15.49 / 16,79€.
