Welcome to our new developers update for Men of War: Assault Squad 2
We have been working hard on the next update that comes with major engine and gameplay changes.
Finally we will introduce DX10 over DX9c and once it is well optimized we will be able to add new and better shaders to the game. Weaker systems should also see an improvement in performance thanks to DX10.
Read more about the major new features below.
Each individual soldier collects XP and levels up during combat. Vehicles do not gain XP but the crew inside does. The more advanced your soldiers are, the better they get at handling weapons and vehicles. They will also get stronger and more resilient to enemy fire. Taking care of your soldiers and saving your tank crew is more important than ever before.
Your soldiers have different vehicle skills now. Tank crew are experts at driving and shooting tanks, while ground troops are better at handling artillery. It's now a key to success to use the right type of infantry instead of the cheapest. But don't worry, your crew efficiency is being displayed in the interface, so you will learn quickly which infantry is the best one to pick.
We introduced a new multiplayer selection. The host can now pick between different groups of units and design his own multiplayer mode by including or excluding certain type of units. Together with a great amount of MP and CP options, there is a huge amount of varation to choose from.
Replays will be part of our next DLC, however you will get access to spectators as a free feature in the next update. Hosts can determine whether they want spectators or not. Spectators do not influence the resource distribution or other balance mechanics.
A new event log that helps you to keep track of what's going on has been introduced. If you missed out on an event, don't worry you can open the event history log and read up all events. Also, you will get notified of important events during the game, like whether your team is winning or losing.
The beta patch will be available next week. ːhonorː
