Tropical Island North is a survivor-friendly island to the east in the DLC: The Center.


The Tropical Island North is one of the easiest areas for a new survivor to start in. There is a deep, cliff-faced gorge along the shores of a secluded cove—an extremely prized location by survivors—that would make an excellent water pen or naval port. Lots of mid-game resources dot the island's mountain and scenic archways, including large amounts of rich Metal and Crystal.

  • Tropical Islands North and South are the easiest areas to get started for new players on The Center. However, late-game resources will need to be imported from elsewhere.
