Arguably the biggest patch to date for Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is now available for opt-in beta testing. Frogboy has made huge improvement to many areas of the AI, Commanders get new class-specific items, rival sovereigns are a lot chattier, and balance has gotten a hard look across the board.

LH 1.7, like all of Stardock's patches, will be free for everyone who has purchased the game.
To download the beta, do the following:
Log into your Steam client.
Right-click Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes and choose Properties.
Select the BETAS tab.
In the drop-down menu, choose "1.7 Beta".
Close the Properties window.
Steam should automatically download the update.
Note that saved games from previous patches will probably work with the 1.7 beta, but will be missing many of the balance changes. Start a new game to check out LH 1.7 the way it's meant to be played.
Please report any bugs or other issues you encounter to the LH Support forum[forums.elementalgame.com]
so that we can make the 1.7 release the best it can be.
Thanks as always for your support, and happy conquering!
