Patch Release May 11th

All units! A small update is rolling out today with improvements and fixes to a few issues the team has been tracking. Here's what's included with this patch:

  • Added Single Player Campaign Leaderboards.
  • Added support for keyboard text to toggle between global (/g) and team (/t) chat.
  • Text chat sender names are now colored according to player color.
  • Fixed various graphics errors that sometimes occurred when a large number of units were on screen at the same time.
  • Optimized CU download sizes. Any future CUs will be much smaller.
  • Fixed a few small crashes that were happening in obscure scenarios.
  • Added an anti-trolling fix. Any player kicked from a lobby will not be able to rejoin for a period of time.
  • PC Leaderboards should now say LEADERBOARDS (FRIENDS) in the header to help clarify that Leaderboards on PC are friends-only.
  • Corrected an issue that was preventing PC users from setting desired AA values for cards that support 16x.
  • Fixed a bug that meant changes to Graphics Options resets were occasionally not being saved.
  • When typing chat messages, camera control will no longer be affected when using keys that also control camera movement.
  • Fixed a crash that sometimes occurred during excessive chat messaging.
  • We’ve addressed an issue with texture resolution changes when switching from Low to High or High to Low graphics settings.
  • Game language will now be based on whatever language is selected in the Steam client.

As always, thank you for your feedback and continued support of Halo Wars: Definitive Edition!
