Patch 1.2

Posted on Jul 01, 15 By w40admin


Patch 1.2 Is Live!

The latest patch for Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is officially live!
The new patch includes new Maps, the Raven Guard and Snakebites factions and even more glorious gore so you can see your being enemies utterly decimated.
Also, if you don't spend initiative points during your turn you will keep them in your next turn! We refer to this as IP Retention. You can now save up to spend five Initiative Points in a single turn.
This patch also includes the long awaited HOTSEAT mode. Hotseat is a local multiplayer mode where two people alternate between playing the game. So called because players will jump in and out of the playing seat.
Multiplayer now has an inbuilt timer in order to prevent some shadier players forcing you to wait forever or forfeit the game, all random online matches are now timed so no more skipping out!
We just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to you all for providing so much feedback and support, we're proud to have such an incredible community backing us and - most importantly, the game!
If you've not yet purchased the game it is available in Early Access through the Steam Store here for Windows. We hope you enjoy playing this game as much as we enjoy working on it!
