Game Balance Adjustments
Both the PHC and the Substrate have had their units and buildings carefully balanced against each other, focusing on each unit having a unique role to play.
Improved Visual Effects
Many visual changes are present in the update, including unit size adjustments for better scale and visibility. Certain weapon and explosion VFX have also been updated.
The benchmark has been updated in order to stay current with evolving technology. Redundant units and armies have been removed, more unit types are showcased, and new camera angles and views were added.
Two new maps are now available! Desolation, a 4 player map perfect for 2v2 team matches, and Aetheon, an 8-player map that can play host to some wild free for all fights.
Several back-end updates will make the game run more smoothly and look better than ever before.
To keep up with the rest of the game balancing, certain campaign scenarios have also been adjusted to accommodate. Challenge levels have been raised and lowered accordingly, and many miscellaneous fixes also went into several campaigns.
The v3.0 update is ready and waiting for you! Don't forget to check out the full changelog here.
