Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Updates incoming…

We have great news for all Gladius fans!

The team got some vacation and they are now back at work, really busy finalizing some exciting features.

 

First off, they have been working on a new free update which will go into open beta any day now.

Among the usual balance changes and minor fixes, that’ll bring two major changes that we feel will greatly please players.

First off, the world builder has been greatly improved. You can now customize your maps to a much higher degree, to the extent that you can control the biome size and density. Do you want to play on a desert planet? You can. Would you rather play on a completely arctic world? You can definitely do that now. It is extremely flexible.

Secondly, the AI has been completely revamped. It is now much better than before. It’s been improved decisively in several areas: resource collection, building priorities, combat… you’ll see that the AI will be much tougher than it ever was.

But that’s not all…

There are DLCs with more content in the pipeline. We will announce the first one very soon, and it’ll be a smaller one while we prepare for bigger things. The team from Proxy Studios is working hard on implementing a new race, one that’ll have a completely new type of gameplay… but all in due time. 

We are excited to see that so many people liked Gladius. It’s been a success for us and we are looking forward to expanding the game. This is just the beginning. There are many directions where we can go from here, and we can’t wait to hear your feedback about it. Please let us know what you would like to see added in the game.

Aggressors – Dev Stream – Military Command

This Friday we are going to start the first stream of a series of developer streams for Aggressors: Ancient Rome.

The lead designer himself, Pavel Kubat, is going to stream Aggressors live, focussing every time on a different aspect of the game.

All of these streams will be extremely detailed and in-depth, offering deep insight on the game’s mechanics.

This time he will focus on Military command: how warfare works, how to get the best performance out of your units, how to exploit terrain to your advantage, how to wage a war from a strategic point of view, and more. 

So join us on our Twitch channel this Friday on September 7th at 9 pm CEST.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock – The Tournament Final is here!

We’re almost there: the two finalists in the Battlestar Galactica Deadlock Tournament are about to challenge each other for supremacy!

 

Who are the finalists? Well, none other than Sproge and Sir Wagglepuss III! They both won previous competitions and are absolute masters when it comes to fleet maneuvering and wiping out enemy ships.

They will fight each other in a live event on Twitch this Saturday on August 25th at 5 pm BST. Don’t miss it – it’ll be a best of three final. 

The prize for the two finalists, as previously announced, will be a copy of the upcoming Battlestar Galactica tabletop game published by Ares Games called Starship Battles . The winner of this tournament will also receive two expansion packs for the game.

There’s more, though. We have prepared something very special for the winner. As you might have heard, the producer of the game, known among the community as Shards, is retiring… but not before bestowing a special prize on the champion. He is going to give away his Battlestar Galactica Commander pins, the very ones he wore in the first ever Deadlock live stream. The champion will have the honour of wearing them and become a Commander of the Colonial Fleet.

Who is going to win? Come to Twitch for the final this Saturday and find out!

So say we all!
