Upcoming Update: New player experience and a bit more…

Hey all,

We’ve wrapped up the Fall sale over on Steam, and heading toward one of the biggest sales of the year on the Winter Steam Sale. During these two sales, we are getting quite a few new players in the game. With this in mind, we will be spending December concentrating on the new player experience!

This will be a first pass at updating tutorials and general menu flow to make it more intuitive for new players to get into the game as well as make it easier to get info from Uber to players.

What does this mean for you as a current player you ask? Well we’ll do a pass on overall bug fixes and polish throughout, as well as more balance tweaks! We have been listening and taken a look at overall map size for ranked maps. We like the response the current 3 have received, but are looking at some larger maps for the next round and will be adding 2 more Ranked 1v1 maps to the pool. We’ll look at adjustments based on feedback on the 3 current maps, as well as other smaller changes to help help push the metagame to a better level. Based on player requests, we’ll be re-adding the ability to select secondary color and custom landing spots. Oh and then there’s this little thing we’ve been working on…

We will get more information when we have a better idea on release date for the Unit Cannon, but it should be hitting PTE soon for balance testing.

We’re planning on getting the main update out by December 18th, though Unit Cannon may take a bit longer depending on balance tweaks needed (please keep in mind that we are Pacific Time Zone, so those in the rest of the world, may be getting this late in the night or on the 19th your time).

As usual, I will post more details to keep you updated as we move toward the 18th, and feel free to join in the discussion on the Uber forums!
