Update 2.1.0

Update 2.1.0

Posted on Oct 19, 15 By w40admin

Update_Banner_04.pngGreetings Kingslayers,

 

We’re proud to announce our first official post-launch update which includes changes to player progression, game balance, AI improvements as well as some minor bug fixes. Earlier this week we released an AI hotfix, improving the method it was using to calculate its hits and misses in Campaign and Skirmish modes for anyone logged in. With this update, the fix will now be available to offline users.

 

You’ll see faster progression of their Requisition points in both Multiplayer and Campaign modes, earning larger amounts for winning matches and completing objectives. This means you will be able to unlock new factions at a quicker rate and bring their favourite chapters or clans to the battlefield even sooner.

 

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about the people who have already played through the campaign: This weekend we’ll be doing a Requisition and Experience Point Giveaway - Players who log in will be rewarded 8000 Experience and 2000 Requisition points to make up for any they would have otherwise missed out on.

 

We’ve also made numerous changes to both Orks and Space Marines, including buffs to both Space Marine accuracy and a handful of abilities, as well as scaling back some of the Orks’ more overwhelming abilities. For a full list of changes, please refer to the Patch Notes below.

 

Cheers,

Otakua | Game Designer
