Quick Hotfix today for a few localization issues

Hey gang!

We patched the game this afternoon to handle a weird text issue on a few of the translated languages. Nothing serious.

Have fun and enjoy the holiday Americans! For the rest of ya, have fun anyway!

8-Bit Hordes Game Update #24 - 06/15/17 - 14:30 PST

Greetings once again!

As always. we review the forums and emails that come in to our support team on a regular basis. Today, we're releasing a patch to fix some smaller but still potentially annoying issues that you've reported to us.

We think you'll be happy with some of these updates and just wanted to say thank you for letting us know what needed to get fixed. Once again we're very appreciative for all your help in continuing to make the game better.

Let us know how you feel about the update and please send us an email if there's still something that needs to be looked at.

-8-Bit


PATCH NOTES:

  • Added server functionality to clean up old replays after 4 months if they have not been downloaded

  • Updated Master Text Mod file to match all latest new features

  • Superweapon countdown timers will sometimes get stuck in a ready state, or not appear at all

  • The skull and crossbones icon for defeated players doesn't always appear when a player disconnects

  • Occasionally a player may untick ready just as the host has hit start which caused the game to go into an unresponsive state.

  • Fixed a variety of Turkish text length problems

About This Game

The Hordes are Coming!
From the team that brought you 8-Bit Armies comes a new fantasy RTS as fast-paced and friendly as the original! 8-BIT HORDES is a colorful strategy-arcade game that is easy to learn for players of all skill levels. Collect resources, build up and defend your base, amass your army of orcs or humans and ultimately crush your opponents! 8-Bit Hordes features offline single-player missions, two-player cooperative missions, AI skirmish mode, and Player-vs-Player Multiplayer modes running on dedicated game servers.

8-Bit Hordes includes all the following:

  • 2 Factions - The Dark Orcs and their Undead allies versus those annoyingly cheery Humans, Dwarves and Elves of the Lightbringers.
  • 24 offline campaign missions
  • 12 co-op missions to play with your friendly fiends
  • 10 multiplayer/skirmish maps that support up to 8 trolls online
  • Devious AI opponents with multiple difficulty options to play with cooperatively or destroy
  • Classic Base-Building mechanics let you construct the ultimate lair from which to launch attacks against your foes
  • Destructible environments on maps ranging from the underworld to cemeteries and haunted forests
  • A fun and friendly art style even the forever cursed would enjoy
  • Full interoperability with 8-Bit Armies' factions and maps providing endless crossover combat opportunities
  • An awesome new soundtrack by Frank Klepacki
  • From the same team that brought you RTS classics such as Star Wars: Empire at War, Universe at War, and Grey Goo

8-Bit Hordes is for anyone that enjoys RTS games but felt overwhelmed by complicated game mechanics and mysterious unit controls. With hours of solo and co-op gameplay included, there's something here for everyone!
