Chaos Reborn v1.13.2 Update, Dec 15th 2017

This update adds Brazilian Portuguese localization, and some bugfixes. We're continuing to work on new content for the game, but have nothing major to release yet.


Game is now translated into Brazilian Portuguese.
Added Discord web link button to profile screen.

Major Fixes:
Sometimes, if you spectated, played async games/realms while queuing for a live game, the live game would start without you.
Clicking enemy units during the enemy turn now displays damage bars in Law Mode again.

Can request allies now during realm-testing; invasions are still blocked.
Some of the talisman descriptions got swapped around as a result of localization - this is now fixed.
Wizard names were sometimes invisible in chat log in custom lobby - this is now fixed.

Minor Fixes:
Spectate panel was displaying placeholder "gameID" instead of actual game ID numbers.
Added space to event log between "X cast Y" and "and succeeded" (/"but failed" ).
Submitting a forged staff with a name that already exists as a bodygear in the equipment database will now unambiguously tell the player to change their staff name (previously, it said "that bodygear name is already taken". Similar fix for bodygear name.

Some Simplified Chinese text was not being displayed.
Activating a mana bind talisman now correctly displays +X mana above the wizard's head, rather than -0 mana (0 cost).
Typo in single player campaign "You also you find a mysterious amulet with with figure of a small dragon carved from sapphire."
English game-text typos:
"...creature combate is determined by a kill probability with not hit points."

“Chaos Reborn is quite simply the best strategy game on PC this year.”

“Chaos Reborn is already a brilliant update of an absolute classic ... There's every reason to be excited about Chaos Reborn's future but, unlike too many other Early Access games, it's a game worth being excited about right now as well.”

“I like it a lot, and it’s barely begun. So far at least, Chaos is well under control.”

About This Game

From Julian Gollop, the designer of the original, award-winning XCOM game comes Chaos Reborn - a turn-based wizard combat game with single player Realm Quests and many online options. Between 2 and 6 players can challenge each other to magical duels in a variety of arenas using a spell deck of interesting spells and creatures - including the Gooey Blob, Shadow Wood, and more. There is a monthly league system and several game modes with live or asynchronous battles. You can explore the Realms of Chaos fighting Wizard Lords and Kings, and invite players to join you in co-op battles, or act as an invader in someone else's realm. These Realms can be designed by player Wizard Kings and rated by other players.
