Level Zero: Extraction is a brand new game that for the time being has only been available in closed beta. But as with any live service game, there are lots of planned updates on the horizon which promises to improve iterate and build on the game currently. The developers at Doghowl have already provided a fairly comprehensive development roadmap outlining some of the updates they're already working on. For now, here's a look at the Level Zero: Extraction Roadmap so you can check out what's coming down the line.

30 April 2024 - Page checked and updated with the latest information and news.

Level Zero: Extraction 2024 Living Roadmap

Somewhat bizarrely, we seem to have two roadmaps for the game. The latter (seen further down) is based on the in-game roadmap players might have seen. However, following the Closed Beta, the team also released a 'Living Roadmap' for 2024.
