This is a milestone patch! We’re using an upgraded version of Unreal Engine in this patch, so the update will be quite large (Steam essentially needs to reinstall the entire game). There’s also a lot of new art assets, which we’re really excited to add.

Here’s everything in Update 0.4.0.2682:

  2. New minion model
  3. New drone model
  4. New drone animations
  5. Reworked player character model textures

  8. Ghost Cloak ability now shows player and his allies a ghostly shader on their character.
  9. Ghost Cloak net-code is now more reliable.
  10. New resource terminal model

  12. Base Turret Damage Resistance increased to 25 (was 10)
  13. Victory Orb now bobs up and down
