While everyone at E3 is focused on games shipping later this year or even in 2018, we’re bringing you great new content TODAY! Awesomenauts 4.1: Dawn of the Renegades is available on Steam now! The best part is: everyone can enjoy Awesomenauts completely for free! This patch introduces a new character, brings additional gameplay improvements, adds additional level editor functionality, and much more!
Rocket’s Renegades are a group of mercenaries on the run from injustice, but they’re out for revenge! Dizzy is the first of them to join the Awesomenauts in this update. Commander Rocket, Smiles, and Qi’Tara will be joining in updates later this summer! Here is the trailer introducing all four of the Renegades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5p5DFP40Fw
Dizzy is a swift character that has the ability to dash multiple times. She can also leave a water-clone that explodes and hits all foes in the vicinity! Dizzy can be bought with Awesomepoints or will be available instantly for All Nauts Pack-owners.
Two new skins!
The long awaited skin for this Bovinion is now here! Meet the brutal Bullbarian Deadlift! Show off your greatsword when playing on the red team or your astonishing axe when playing on the blue team!
Check out Bullbarian Deadlift in the Steam store!
After three gruelling years in the Waxxon Spiral, Dizzy completed her Aqua-Fu training. She had become Kunoichi Dizzy, Master of the Aqua-Fu!
Mod creators are now able to use mechanics that switch you to other‘Nauts and skins in custom maps. It is even possible to play as a creep or droid, if you want! This gives new options for creative game modes, and we can’t wait to see what crazy stuff our community members will make! Check out this small video about the feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xigvHbNIy7M
We’re also adding a new series of in-game medals for players who manage to attain over 250 wins with a character! These are meant to show off the accomplishments of some our most dedicated players, who have been part of our community for years.
Awesomenauts 4.1: Dawn of the Renegades is just the first update that we’ve got lined up for the summer, and players can look forward to more characters, more unlockables, and more improvements over the coming months! In fact, the next character to join the Awesomenauts will be made available in Open Beta next week already!
Get ready to take Smiles to the battlefield soon!
