Worlds Adrift Shop Guide/FAQ

As part of the Update 29 cycle, we have introduced the first iteration of the Worlds Adrift Store. This is a very early version of what the final shop will be but we like to think this is an exciting start. It's worth repeating at this juncture that all items on the store will COSMETIC ONLY, we're maintained from the beginning that we never want Worlds Adrift to be pay to win and are committed to that vision.

Here's a guide on how to access the Shop and get your purchased goodies!

  • For now, the Shop is accessed via the UI on the main menu before entering the game. Clicking on Shop will launch a new browser window:


  • This will take you to the Steam Shop for Worlds Adrift where you browse the cosmetic items we have available. The options available will expand over time.


  • Item colours denote rarity, any item with a grid-like background is a schematic.
  • You can click on an item to learn more information about it and proceed to add it to your cart.


  • Proceeding will be the final step before purchasing. [REFUND YES/NO]


  • Once an item has been purchased it will move to your Steam Inventory and also your in-game Stash inventory. Schematics will be automatically learned on all your characters.



  • Items purchased from the Shop will not be tradeable until a certain amount of time has elapsed, you can see this information from your Steam Inventory.
