8-Bit Armies Game Update #28 & FREE UNIT VOICE PACK! 12/02/16 - 10:30 PST

As promised, we're releasing our Unit Voice Pack for 8-Bit Armies today for free! All you need to do is just download it here on Steam and then add it to your collection.

This new DLC rounds out our Unit Voice Support that we are adding to all our games. 8-Bit Hordes was updated just a few weeks ago, and our upcoming 8-Bit Invaders game will have support for Unit Voices in just two weeks when we launch!

We've also made a number of other changes to the game in preparation for 8-Bit Invaders cross-play support.


GAME IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Game modified to accept Voice Pack DLC for both 8-Bit Armies factions (Guardians & Renegades)
  • Enable Cross-Play support for upcoming 8-Bit Invaders release on December 16th
  • Audio fix to ensure that Superweapons will always be heard by enemies and allies
  • Updated Mod support to work with new Unit Voice Packs. Player mods will override built-in or DLC verbal unit responses
