Community Announcements - Mitaki

Hey everyone, we announced our plans to remove the ability to chat with your opponents in matchmade games last Wednesday. Since then, we've received a lot of feedback from players.

Based on this feedback, we've decided to let this feature be as it was. We'll tell you a little more in the announcement below:

The Beta for Awesomenauts 3.5: Unleash your Power has been live for two weeks now and we've seen lots of great maps and other creations uploaded to the Workshop already! Take the Flying Seas of Okeanos by Nikey9, a cool Awesomenauts map with an underwater segment, or The Breach of Omicron by Blatoy, which is a single-player map that really blows your mind, for instance!
We showed off some of these community creations on the Streamisho earlier today. If you missed it, catch the show on Youtube:
We're amazed by the content that has been created so far, and can't wait for the level editor to go live for all users in Update 3.5. We have yet to set a date for this update, but can promise you that more features will be added to the toolset before then!

Cross-team Chat
On the Streamisho today, we announced that Awesomenauts 3.5 will also introduce an important change to the way the in-game chat works. When the update goes live, players will no longer be able to use the in-game chat feature to talk to their opponents in matchmade games. We're doing this because we continue to see a large amount of abusive comments and general toxicity in cross-team chat, and very few positive interactions, so feel like this change will make it a more pleasant experience for everyone. Of course, you'll continue to be able to use cross-team chat in custom games.

We look forward to hearing your feedback on this change.

ALWB: Intergalactic Warfare
During the show, we also discussed the upcoming new ALWB Tournament, dubbed the Galactic Warfare! In this tournament, four teams will be drafted by Ronimo team members from the very best Awesomenauts players. These teams will face off against one another, leading up to the eventual playoffs. Players who have not been drafted will be able to compete in the same tournament, in a separate ladder! For the full details, please visit or catch the interview we did with Bets, the host of ALWB, in the Streamisho VOD.

Tune in to the Streamisho next week as Kewn, Jasper, Davey, and Robin from the Ronimo Games team draft these four teams!

Awesomenauts Arena League
And while we're talking about the competitive scene, don't forget that the Arena League playoffs will take place this weekend. Ten teams have qualified, including Team Keznia, Pushback, HDTV, Dank Wankers, We can do this, Team Brunch, Knockout, AKI, Little Boys, and Spade &his incredible team. The matches will be covered during a stream on Sunday at 20:00 EU / 19:00 UK / 2PM ET / 11AM PT over at

The Scrim Show is back!
Tomorrow, the Awesomenauts Rumble will bring back the community-favorite Scrim Show over at at 18:00 EU / 17:00 UK / noon ET / 9AM PT. During this show, scrim matches between community teams will be covered and discussed, so it'll be a great show to catch if you're interested in getting into the competitive scene!

For more details, and two showcases of community maps (the Flying Seas of Okeanos by Nikey9 and Omicron City by Vikrithegamer), catch the full Streamisho:

Deadlift reveal!
The new ‘Naut, Samuel ‘Deadlift’ Gains has been completely revealed during the Livestreams. His gameplay, skills and voice lines were all shown during several streams. He is now ready to demonstrate his strength!

Level editor and Steam workshop integration are live!
The level editor is now available in Beta for anyone who owns a copy of Awesomenauts. The level editor has Steam workshop integration which allows you to play levels made by anyone through the Steam workshop. There are easy-to-use options for simple level designs and more advanced features like AIs to make more advanced levels. Try whatever you like and let your mind be free!

New custom game browser!
The custom game browser makes it possible to play with friends and find specific games more easily. This can be combined with the new level editor in order to play different levels and even game modes (for now the Beta only allows you to share maps though). Just make sure the maps are uploaded to the Steam workshop!

Skills unlocked from the start!
In this Beta patch we are experimenting with unlocking your character’s 2 basic skills right from the start of the game without having to buy them in the store. This is something we want to experiment with and we would like to receive feedback from players on this.

How to get the Beta version?
The beta is downloaded next to the main game, so you will have both on your computer at once. This means you won’t have to download updates whenever you switch from beta to standard.
To access the beta:
  • Right-click Awesomenauts in your Steam Library and select "Properties"
  • Select the "DLC" tab and make sure "Awesomenauts - Beta dual-load" is checked.
  • Wait until the beta is downloaded (this can take a while).
  • Start the game
  • Select "Play Awesomenauts Beta" and hit "PLAY"
Patch notes
The full patch notes are uploaded on the Awesomenauts forum. You can find the full details of the patch in the link below:

During the Streamisho last Wednesday, Jasper and Joost talked about the new features of the Awesomenauts 3.5 Beta, which will go live during the Streamisho next week. The amazing possibilities of the level editor were also shown!

The newly revealed character goes by the name of Samuel ‘’Deadlift’’ Gains, who was a young calf during "The Great Bovinion Wrangling" and escaped aboard a dairy transport bound for the Flexon, where all inhabitants are incredibly muscular! A Kremzon took him in and put him on a rough training regiment, to prepare for his revenge on Sheriff Lonestar.

During the stream of February 8th, 17:00 CET, 16:00 UK time, 11AM ET and 8AM PT, we will show gameplay of Deadlift and reveal his voice lines for the first time, and experiment more with the level editor and the custom game browser.
