Kingdom Wars 2: Battles Patch 0.9.2 is live!

By Rebecca Smith, 8 months ago
Presenting Kingdom Wars 2: Battles - Pre-Release I build. With this massive update - we are ready to start the countdown towards eventual release.

KW2B is now full feature complete - and we can finally join our players in playing the game, while fixing last remaining bugs, and improving things there and there.

We will continue with at least two huge updates prior to release - and we expect to fix every single bug remaining - count is over a hundred right now, but with our hands finally free from content creation, we are confident we`ll get things running smooth and bug free.
Thanks for your support, and we are looking forward to reading your reports and suggestions in our forums.

Also we wanted to mention, that as the game graduates from Early Access, we will continue work on new content as well as polishing and improving KW2B for months to come.
