Update #76: Grenades Target Ground, Shield Rebalance, Relics!



This week, your mighty Templars can throw grenades at any spot of open ground that they choose. It seems like a simple thing, but without it, grenades have been restricted for too long. Free the grenades! This new improvement makes grenadier Templars far more powerful and versatile, especially as all grenade attacks only cost 1 AP.

We've also made some tweaks to the balance two shields (thanks @drspendlove). To help sweeten the deal with the story characters Luthor and Nyra, both have received a special relic that they carry into battle. Nyra carries the mighty Renown Kit and Luthor the Bearheart Tact which grants him endless counterattacks.

Finally, we made some more fixes in the combat log to get all the values properly printed and fixed some issues with some of the big bosses in the late game.

Thanks to everyone leaving a review!

Save 50% and Update #75: Weapon Improvements!


Thanks to all of our players making suggestions, commenting on balance and asking great questions this week! We've pulled together a weapons focused update, including a new Gear Level 7 Needle Viper for Scouts. The new Needle Rifle cause a ripple of improvements up to the Rubicon Needler, the relic in the class, making it a more impressive weapon for its Gear Level 9 cost. To match the rebalance, the Stealth Naga Rifle has also shifted up to Gear Level 9, where it belonged, with a small increase in stats to compensate for its additional GL cost. The new Needle Viper is in Stealth Operative 4.

We've added a new Ordnance for the Berserk class, which will resupply the three new Talents that were added at the time that Berserks picked up Dual Axe wielding. This one has been added to "Wrath 5" RQ level.

We've improved consistency with the application of debuffs that drive an enemy's armor negative. If an enemy's armor rating is negative, they recieve an additional +50% Negative Armor in damage (-8 Armor = +4 Dmg). Before this patch, this rule was being skipped for Penetrating hits. Now fixed, always applied! Even better!

Thanks to all of our players and thanks for leaving a review!

v2.6.37 -
- New Weapon: new Needler Viper for Scouts, Gear Level 7 Needler

The Templar Knights are a revered and storied martial order who were the elite forces for the Star Traders during their most challenging conflict: the Galactic War against the Guild.

Their unchallenged prowess derives from two key factors:
  • Leviathan Battle Suits - They pilot 10 foot tall battle mechs known as Leviathan Battle Suits. Once designed for high-pressure environments and exploring gas giants and deep space, these mechs have been adapted for war.
  • Templar Lineage - Templars descend from a Zendu bloodline -- a unique heritage that gives them the ability (with proper training and ritual) to pass all of memories from their lives (and any memories passed down by their ancestors) to a newly born child. This memory gift is known as a Templar’s Lineage – and it is what gives Templars their immense advantage in combat, tactics, engineering, and the ability to drive the hulking Leviathan Battle Suits. The player takes on the role of a Templar Captain who hails from a storied Lineage reaching back 87 Templars -- and who pages back through the memories to help cope with the dire situation at hand.

The Templar Knights are a martial order sworn to protect the Star Traders – the last known free humans. Under the guidance of the Templars and the prophet Shalun, the Star Traders departed the ruins of the Galactic Core, leaving behind desolation wrought by the great Galactic War. Guided by the prophet, the Star Traders sought a new home among the stars. Across the multi-generational journey of the Great Exodus, many ships have been lost, fallen behind, or splintered from the main fleet -- scattering the Star Traders to the galactic winds.

With the Great Exodus coming to an end, the Star Traders founded new colonies on the few remaining habitable worlds. The Templar Knights are called upon once again to defend the Star Traders and their new colonies from an ancient threat.

Templar Battleforce is the fourth Trese Brothers title set in the Star Traders universe. The game follows Templar Assault, the Trese Brothers’ original squad-based warfare game in which players lead squads of Templar Knights against the Xeno threat. Templar Battleforce inherits not only the rich story of its predecessor, but the game’s high tension and corridor-to-corridor combat style. Games created by the Trese Brothers are known for challenging difficulty progressions, so you’ll have the option to play on easy and normal difficulties -- or crank it up into multiple gears of insanely challenging combat!


Trese Brothers Games is one of the premier indie game development studios for desktop and mobile RPG and strategy games. Andrew and Cory Trese founded Trese Brothers Games in 2010 from a shared passion for challenging, highly replayable games. With more than six games on major game platforms and markets, Trese Brothers Games has more than 2.5 million customers . . . and counting.

Come join the family!

You can find our team interacting with gamers every day on our forum about everything from features to new content.

We make games we love -- and we hope you’ll love them, too!
