Raft Renovation Update Patch Notes - New Decorations and Blocks

Get prepared for some serious renovations in Raft.

June 21, 2021

Raft Renovation update is your best chance to give a fancy look to your raft and design in the way you love.

Raft is a survival experience on a vast ocean that can be played either solely or with friends. Awoken on a small raft, your mission is to go across the ocean and find land.

Before reaching land, you need to survive and keep expanding and improving your raft, which is the only thing that keeps you away from the wildlife beneath the water.
