Kingdom Wars 2: Battles Update 1.1 - “The First of Many” is Live!

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
With release weekend behind us we are ready to present out first update 1.01. First of many updates to follow as we have big plans for supporting and expanding KW2B for months to come.

To get things started we focused on fixing the last remaining bugs, as well as including as many player suggestions as we can. Later this week and next week we`ll continue working exclusively on polishing the game, and adding more and more player suggestions - from unit AI to GUI updates and so much more. Later this spring we`ll start working on new content, new maps, new episodes, leading on to release of a first free expansion in the near future.

And so presenting 1.01 “The First of Many”
