The worldmap takes a break and makes place for an intuitive main menu.

We also overhauled the League Tier system and introduced Subtiers to all tiers but Æthermasters.

Other noteworthy updates: Brand new main missions and the introduction of daily missions, and a completely new tutorial.

To celebrate this major Milestone, we slashed all the prices in the game MASSIVELY!

New Features:

  • New champion: Skyblade. A good mid-range offensive character with a whirlwind attack. Skyblade belongs to the faction Aether Junkies, has 6 HP and does 2 DMG in extended melee range.
    - Her Super Skill deals 2 damage to everyone around her and her Ultimate Skill sacrifices an ally champion and does 3 DMG to everyone in the sacrificed champ's melee range.
  • New champion: Taeyang is a new class of Champions. He possesses the passive bonus "hatred against Air Pirates", has 7 HP and deals 2 base DMG (+1 against Air Pirates).
    - Using his Super Skill, Taeyang charges towards his target and deals 2 DMG (+1 against Air Pirates).
    - His Ultimate Skill attack deals 1 damage to all enemies and triggers an explosion on all enemy Air Pirates hitting them and all champions in their melee range for +2 extra damage.
  • New floating texts for better visualisation of when champions/ships take damage and gain aether (and hatred damage).
    Player names and chat messages will be checked for nasty words

    - He will welcome the player back to the game upon login
    - He will inform the player when a match has been found or player has been challenged
  • Two new master images have been added for all players right out of the gate. These do not need to be purchased
  • Every five matches the player gets a rare shell pack of his choosing
  • Two new shell packs giving the player either 10 rare shells or 10 shells with a chance for some of them being rare
  • New master images: one for every champion. Beat 100 enemies with a specific champion and you unlock a his/her master image.
  • Improved Æther gain effects. Now you can see more easily who gained Æther and why.
  • League tiers and progression has been re-worked; gaining or losing a tier or sub-tier is now set to defined consecutive wins or losses (2/3/4/5) and only Æther-Masters will gain or lose League-points(wins).

  • The number of champions rotating as trial characters has been adjusted in correspondence to already owned champions
    - owning no champion - 3 trial champions in rotation

Recensioni

“A mix of MOBA ideas and tactical RPG gameplay, Aerena is a cool game that has the potential to be a hit with fans of both strategy and competitive multiplayer games.”
8/10 – Gaming Nexus

“Ærena is a uniquely accessible and thought-provoking take on multiplayer battles that could easily turn the MOBA scene on its head. And above all, it is damn fun.”
9/10 – GameZone

“Ærena's visuals are a delight to see. Menus and loading screens are filled with entertaining artwork that adds to the vast steampunk world that Cliffhanger Productions has built, especially each champion’s avatar portrait along with their backstories. [...]offering a different experience to those looking for something that stands out within the growing genre of battle arenas. Ærena: Clash of Champions is definitely worth checking out”
4.5/5 – OnRPG

Aerena gioco free to play basato sulla sfida di altri giocatori, con concorso a premi abbinato.
Per trovare una partita basta un semplice click sul pulsante cerca, poi si passa a una schermata in cui è possibile scegliere la nostra nave, selezionare i nostri campioni e le nostre magie.
Le partite classificate contro altri giocatori sono basati su un sistema di rango .
Questo sistema fornisce punti per le vittorie , e toglie punti per le sconfitte.
Ogni giocatore piazza tre campioni sul campo di battaglia.
Dopo di che Il combattimento a turni comincia .
L'obiettivo principale è quello di distruggere la nave nemica .
Aerena è un gioco molto divertente e veloce (una partita dura circa 15 minuti),facile da imparare, ma molto impegnativo e difficile da padroneggiare.
Il bello di questo gioco risiede nel sistema di combattimento a turni davvero ben studiato, ogni partita richiede tattiche sempre diverse, perché ogni avversario usa i vari campioni e magie in modo diverso creando ogni volta delle sfide sempre uniche.
Comparto audio video nella media, con piccoli bug da risolvere.
Nel complesso la produzione soddisfa, sebbene mostri il fianco a qualche critica.
Modelli poligonali, animazioni, scenari, effetti sonori e audio ancora migliorabili, così come i menù che hanno possibilità di settaggi limitate.
Manca localizzazione in italiano, comunque gli sviluppatori sono al lavoro per risolvere i vari problemi.
Avete letto tutto? Bene allora vi aspetto nell'Aerene e vinca il migliore buon game a tutti.
Ciaooooooooooooooooo.

Aerena è un ottimo gioco tattico, molto leggero e grafica che da agli occhi un bel vedere. Un titolo uscito da poco su steam eppure davvero molto bello. E' ovviamente un gioco ad arena (ma va?!) e comprende una classifica dei migliori giocatori, una trovata per me geniale per aumentare la competitività. Per il resto, non c'è molto da dire, provatelo, entrate nelle meccaniche di gioco e sarete più che soddisfatti di questo f2p.

Un altro gioco indie riscoperto grazie al farm delle carte.
Gioco strategico a turni dove l'obiettivo sarà affondare la nave avversaria.
Carino considerando che c'è anche il multiplayer.

CONSIGLI PER L'ACQUISTO: Uno di quei giochi che spesso e volentieri è presente nei bundle. Non credo valga la pena comprarlo separatamente.

Ærena: Clash of Champions isn't your standard turn-based tactical game. Ærena places you directly into the battle for Æther--there's no slow start--things go BANG and BOOM right from the beginning!

If you can, imagine a system similar to League of Legends, where you earn points and use those points to purchase new champions. This is the system employed by Ærena and it does a good job of keeping players engaged.

Not only is the in-game currency/point system similar to League of Legends, but the champions have a similar feel, which is awesome because in most turn-based tactical games you don't command CHAMPIONS but rather generic units. In Ærena, the champions have beautiful, vibrant rendering and their abilities are dynamic unlike the generic abilities units have in most turn-based tactical games.

Ærena is a 100% PvP game, which I love! You can practice with the AI but that gets old, its human competition that drives this game! Similar to other ELO/RP based PvP games, you can rank up from Bronze to Æther Master. The average match takes about 10-15 minutes so this game will not consume your life unless you choose.

Since I purchased this game (Alpha) I've seen numerous updates. The devs are constantly adding new content and they stay in close contact with the player-base. Recently, players voted on a Top-10 list of 'Wanted Features.' The devs are now working diligently to apply as many of the requested features as possible.

Recently a new patch was released. As with most games, a new patch usually means a couple small problems, from which this game is not immune. However, the devs worked hard and fast to eliminate those problems so the community could once again enjoy the game. In fact, my account glitched out after the last patch and one of the devs personally responded to my request for help. He logged into the game and fixed my problem! Talk about service--this is a FTP game!

I'm not sure what more I can say to entice you to play other than, "If you don't try Ærena: Clash of Champions, you're missing a diamond in the rough" (although this game is beautifully polished).

Come find me in the Ærena. I'm on my way to Æther Master. I'll see you there!
