Changelog V1.77-1.89

New option: Gameplay Speed
- I have a good news for everyone, who found this game a bit too fast paced. There is a new requested option: 'Gameplay Speed'. It effects on the speed of units creation, base building, resource extraction, avatar’s level.

Limit Of Units
- Now limit of units is dependent on the quantity of captured or created Energy Sources. On start your limit is 100 units. For each new Energy Source after 10, you will get 10 additional unit points (up to 200).
Note that different units has different crew coefficient: for soldier-class units it is 1, for tank-class units it is 2-3, for battleship-class units it is 10.

Game Chat
- Now you can use chat even in the action mode: press button '`' to enable chat mode, then press 'Enter' to send message or exit chat mode.

Requested Key-mapping changes
- Keys for rotating strategy camera: ‘Q/E’ or ‘Left Alt’ or ‘Mouse Wheel’ button.
- Activate button has been changed to 'F'.
- Find button has been changed to 'C'.
These and other keys can be changed in the launch menu, input section.

Experimental Functions
- I just added this new option in the settings menu. It unlocks some new but not well tested features. So, you can use them at your own risk;)
The first of them is the ability to order buildings and airstrikes in the action mode. How it works:
Press F3 and you will see icons of bildings on the bottom-right side of the screen.
Then press button 1-8 to order a building.
Press F4 and you will see icons of orbital strikes on the bottom-right side of the screen.
Then press button 1-5 to order an airstrike.
You will see the progress on the mid-right and will be informed when it is done and ready to deploy. You still need to go to the strategy mode to deploy it.

Hidden Enemy Troops
- Now hidden enemy troops are available in the multiplayer

Balance Changes
- Starting level of energy increased by 20% for all the combat avatars.
- Attack speed and range of Berserks was increased.

Bug Fixes
- Fixed bug with AI stats and progress.
- Fixed with teams and factions in the multiplayer.
- Fixed bug with difficulty in the multiplayer.
- Fixed bug with the game physics.
- Fixed bug with camera for vehicles.
- Fixed bug with scrolling hosts list.
- Fixed bug with chat in the multiplayer.

More updates you can see at the official development blog.

Thanks for playing and have fun!

About This Game

WARSHIFT is the unique mix of the Action, Strategy and Role-playing gameplay elements that forms an innovative game genre. You can build base, manage troops, and then come down to keep your enemy at gunpoint in the dynamic battle and customize your main characters. This unusual gameplay requires a complete change of your play style.

The game is developed just by one person, who is both game designer, artist and programmer in this project. He worked hard for more than 5 years to implement a lot of his and the game community's ideas.

VIDEO REVIEW by GamingTaylor:


In 2062, the colonial planet “Enigma” was invaded by an aggressive alien race Atroid’s from the parallel world that has gone into our universe through the hypothetical “Gates of Chaos”. This non-material beings were forced to clothe their energy nucleuses in the strong physical shells (exoskeletons), as they needed to have impact on the environment in our world. As a result, they created an army of alien droids which are capable to fight in any environment and at any temperature. The fortifications of the planetary defense line turned out to be not effective against the powerful energy weapon used by the aliens. Soon, the biosphere of the planet felt the destructive power of their deadly attack, and a half of its surface turned into a lifeless desert. The miner colony garrison that was made up of volunteer soldiers suffered huge losses and was urgently evacuated. All resource extraction works on the planet were suspended, and corporations began to bear huge losses. But, after numerous antiwar protests, the government of the Colonial Republic did not want to risk human lives, and scientists had to create an entirely new army of intergalactic operations. The republican fleet and the assault battalion “Delta”, consisting of cyber-guards, heavy machinery and robotic drones-transformers was sent to the planet. The Commanders who have telepathic skills control that steel armada while being aboard the ARKS. For the purpose of their own safety, they are forbidden to leave the ARK. However, they can be directly involved in battles as operators of combat avatars (unmanned combat robotic vehicle).
If any combat avatar gets a critical damage, it will be immediately evacuated and, after a quick repair, again will be sent to the battlefield. But, if the aliens are still able to destroy all the ARKS, the Colonial Republic will lose control of the planet forever..

"I want to thank the game's community for all the feedback, suggestions and support they have given me during the Early Access period. Everyone who helped me make it as awesome as possible, I thank you very much!
I came up with idea of this game a long time ago. Once, I'm decided to stop just to dream, but to make it real. Being a professional artist, game designer and programmer, I spent 10 years of my life working for many game companies. Finally I decided to leave my last job, staying home like a hermit for a while, and focusing on my own game title. The game you see here is a result of my personal day to day hard work over a 4 years + 1 year in the Early Access. That was my personal challenge, but I'm pretty sure I can do even more with community’s help. Cheers, Cyril"
