patch_26

Awesomenauts patch 2.6 Reloaded has been released! This patch brings with it a whole list of new features, goodies and balance tweaks. Check the official forums for the full record-breaking massive patch notes list. For a list of all the major changes, read on!

Loadout Revamp
The biggest change is the total revamp on how our loadout system works. You no longer pick a loadout before a match starts. Instead, the shop has opened up to allow you to pick an choose items depending on who your opponents are and how the match is progressing. You’re still only limited to three upgrades per row, but you are now able to freely adapt during gameplay!

AI Station 205
Another big change is the introduction of the new AI Station 205 map! This map will replace the old 404 Station in the online rotation and features two lanes and a large fire hazard in the middle! Station 404 will still be playable in Custom Matches and Practice.

New Skins
The top three placements from our “Design a Skin” contest are now all available for purchase in the store! Grim Genji features an all new voice set done by the every brilliant Jesse Cox:

Jotunn Skolldir premieres as a new type of skin. Depending on what team he plays, his looks change from Fire (Red Team) to Ice (Blue Team) changing all of his special attacks and sound effects along with him!

The third skin belongs to Leon who dons his best centurion outfit as Leon Legionnaire!

New AI bots
Playing with or against bots just got a whole lot more interesting! Patch 2.6 sees the introduction of nine new AI enemies or allies: Ayla, Coco Nebulon, Genji, Gnaw, Raelynn, Skree, Swiggins, Ted McPain and Vinnie & Spike. Four of the existing bots received an update making them even more lethally efficient: Clunk, Froggy, Leon and Lonestar!

Profile Screen
The new profile screen is your go-to place for all ‘nauts related stats! Be it killing sprees, winning streaks or Kill/Death ratios. Everything you’d like to know about your playstyle can be found here. The Leaderboards have also been moved to the profile screen.

Improved Replays
Replays now feature all kinds of graphs: damage done, current solar, total solar and much more! These graphs can be toggled per team or per player. The Replay camera also got a tweak and now features an improved Auto-Cam which follows the action letting you sit back and relax with your favorite snacks while enjoying the action.

New Editor Functions
Feeling creative? The AI Editor got a nice upgrade that allows you to spawn custom AI’s. Some of the possibilities that this allows is creating waves of enemies changing a custom match of Awesomenauts into a full fledged survival mode!

You can review all these points in The Vault where we tease and reveal upcoming patch features a few weeks before release, so always keep an eye on it.

See you on AI 205. Bring marshmallows!

Awesomenauts 2.6 isn’t called ‘Reloaded’ for nothin’! Big changes are coming up! When the update hits, your loadout will be a thing of the past and we’ll let you decide what you want to buy during a match.

Of course, this is just the beginning of the updates heading in the consoles’ way. On that front our friends at Abstraction Games are already working on the next PlayStation 4 patch as well as getting the Xbox One ready for action.

Patch 2.5: Shadows of the Void released!

Patch 2.5 has launched and brings you a new character, an AI Editor and is now fully playable in Brazilian Portuguese!

The AI Editor will let users tinker around with existing bots or create new ones from scratch. This means you can create bot behaviour for every character in Awesomenauts! These custom bots can be used in Custom Matches and ,if good enough, may end up in the game itself for everyone to enjoy. The editor already features a wide range of functionality and debug tools but will receive new features periodically for users to play around with. You can follow community progress and find custom made bots in the newly added Modding Forum!

We’re also showing some love to our large Brazilian Awesomenauts playerbase, who brought us gems like the LBA (Liga Brasileira de Awesomenauts) tournament and many other cool spin-off competitions, by supporting their language in the game! Now they can play Awesomenauts in their native Brazilian Portuguese.

This patch also sees the entry of our newest Starstorm member: Skree! This little floating Techno-Shaman has been burrowing around in the deep recesses of the Starstorm Station. Down among the wires and all the crude machine-parts, Skree built many idols to the Robot Tech-Gods he found all over the place. After the Starstorm was accidentally jump-started back to life by one of his many tinkerings his statues did the same, convincing Skree that the spirits of technomancy wanted him to pursue a new vision-quest. This event led him to the Awesomenauts where he uses his gigantic Saw Blade-tossing and Idol-crafting skills to hunt down all non-believers of the Technomancy!
