Ancient Frontier - Patch 1.10 (Steam Achievements)



Happy New Year Commanders!

We hope everyone is having a great start to the New Year. This week we bring you Steam Achievements and a few bug fixes:

Steam Achievements

At long last the Steam Achievements are live. Many of them you should earn when you load an existing game as most of the achievements the game was already tracking. A few of the achievements will only start tracking from now forward. Good luck out there earning them all.


Bug Fixes
  • Changed the "Launch" button on the Deployment screen to always work even if something draws over the top of it somehow.
  • Fixed the backup saves if Autosave is on. The Backup saves were not updating if Autosave was on after you started a new game, leading to a situation where progress could be wiped if you accidentally loaded from them. Going forward the backup saves will track the main save when Autosave is on, so you have four backups of your latest progress.


That's all for now. We are going to keep reading all of your feedback while we work on the upcoming DLC.

Thank you to everyone for playing our game!

Free DLC "The Crew" - Progress Update



Greetings Commanders. We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.

We continue to work on the Crew DLC. The artwork is coming along well and we are excited about the new options this will open up to players. Creating everything is taking us a little longer than planned, so we are pushing back the launch date until after the holidays.

We are currently on track to release the new DLC in early January.



Here is the information on what to expect from this DLC:

There will be a total of fifteen different crew members to choose from, with unique artwork for each faction. Crew members will be able to repair ship hulls during battle, increase accuracy or damage, boost dodge and much more. Crew will be awarded in some story missions, can be recruited from the Store, and will also be earned in some optional missions.

We think that this expansion will add even more depth to fleet management and provide players with even more options to customize their ships.

Best of all we will be releasing the new DLC for FREE to everyone as a thank you to the community for all of your support.


Thank you to everyone for playing our game.

“It is easy to sink dozens of hours into Ancient Frontier, and by and large I enjoyed my time with the game”
8 – Chalgyr's Game Room

“If you like traditional, hexy turn based strategy there’s no reason you won’t enjoy this and there’s quite a lot of it to go through.”
75 – Old Grizzled Gamers

“This game is an excellent example of what game developers are capable of when they are given a chance to create something they truly care passionately about.”
