Awesomenauts 4.0 has been out on Steam for over a week and we are happy to read about all the feedback you gave us. We’ll give you a full rundown of all the news covered this week. If you prefer to watch the Streamisho on Youtube, you can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s73jBDe_bQ
After receiving feedback from a large part of the community, we decided that an offline mode is very much wanted by the community. Some people think we’ve removed botmatches and splitscreen with the latest update, but that’s not the case: you can still play with and against bots in Update 4.0, and you can still play local splitscreen multiplayer. The only change here is that you need to have an internet connection to start the game, since your unlocks are now stored in the cloud.
We’ve decided to permanently leave an offline-only version of Update 3.5 available on Steam. And the nice thing is: it’s available already!

New Founder Reward
You are a founder of Awesomenauts, if you owned a copy of the base game on Steam before April 26th. We decided that we will add another Founder Reward for the people that supported us for such a long time. We have not announced what this reward will be, but this will be done on our social media channels in the near future. Be sure to keep an eye out!
