Hammerwatch 1.4!



5 Years ago on this very day, or at least around this day, Hammerwatch was released.
Today we are releasing the 1.4 patch which contains features from the console version released last winter, including the Sorcerer class and twin stick/mouse keyboard support! Several skills have been re-balanced or reworked and a lot of bugs been fixed, we also added a much wanted mana-regen in the combo store. See the list below!



Patch Notes 1.4
  • Added Sorcerer class!
  • Added twin-stick controls!
  • Replaced Wizards Ice Nova with Fire Nova and Frost Shield with Fire Shield
  • Priest beam isn't blocked by other players, now it goes through and heals
  • Replaced Warlocks Lifesteal Nova with Summon Gargoyle
  • Warlocks Lightning Strike can now hit the same target multiple times for diminishing damage
  • Wizard can now move slowly white spraying fire
  • The Lich boss in Castle Hammerwatch no longer instantly shoots after teleporting, there is now an animation so the attack can be avoided
  • Lives now cost more the more you have
  • Added a combo upgrade for regenerating mana
  • Updated visuals of characters
  • Fixed some small visual issues
  • Editor no longer runs extremely slowly with modern NVidia drivers
  • Editor now works with Intel graphics cards

To enable twin stick, enter the control options and set mouse aim, then you will want to rebind the skills to mouse buttons.

If you don't like these balance changes and tweaks and still want to play the previous version, you can always roll back this change in the steam options for the game.




Other news

We have great plans for our current game, Heroes of Hammerwatch (the roguelite), which is getting a bigger update soon with more floors and later with a real DLC with a new campaign, class and tons of new stuff. Just check out this Troll here! A lot more news about this soon!

And finally, a small environmental picture from Hammerwatch II, day, twilight and night, with some rain too! Enjoy! We can unfortunately not show a proper video of the game yet, but in time we will!
