BATTLE TASKS & PLAYER BASES!! (v6.1.5)

Hi everyone,

This patch adds a number of game-changing features, namely Battle Tasks and Faction Bases (to all games in the series). In addition to these, there were many patches and other updates (listed below). I am very happy that we have such an active Community that really motivates us to develop the Age of Fear series!

CHANGE LOG:

  • NEW: Battle quests have been added to both campaigns in Age of Fear: The Undead King Gold. Each battle has several optional objectives (usually time-limited).


    Battle Tasks


  • NEW: All factions now have bases! There is the Orc Village for the Greenskins, the Demonic Portal for Chaos, the Stonehenge for Forest Folk and the Mountain Fortress for Dwarves. Faction bases follow the pattern from Age of Fear: The Undead King Gold, where upgrades unlock additional units and special buildings.


    Faction Bases

  • UPDATE: We have finished recording all the voices of the units and, I hope, this will improve the quality. In this patch, we have replaced the voices of the following units: Fairy, Witch and Succubus.

  • UPDATE: new portraits for Ent, Corrupted Ent, Troll and Troll Thrower:

    Ent

    Troll

  • BALANCE: Giant Scorpions are no longer capture-able - this is to fix early-game exploit whereas those unit are too powerful.

  • UPDATE: Mutagen Potion will keep modifying unit’s traits (also remove existing ones).

  • BUGFIX: Wild Mage trait is now only affecting spells with Failure Rate.

  • BUGFIX: Time-shifted archers can attack after move.

ONGOING FEATURES:

  • ONGOING: Invisibility mechanics are already coded in, but require more testing to make AI aware of this feature. Invisibility will add an element of surprise to battles and mess up your tactics! Prepare for the unexpected!

  • ONGOING: More localisations are coming too! We have started with French (thanks to targus929!), but once this update is stable we will look into other languages.

  • ONGOING: The Age of Fear 4 - the main story is already written and we are working on scripts and game flows. The release is planned for 2020 and we will surely push out more news before that.

YARRRR'S MOD!!

Hi again,

I must point to incredible work by Yarrrr. Both mods already have pretty good descriptions, thus I will copy the most relevant bits:


https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1765826932
The Swarm is a quantity-based faction; They have a large team size and about 3 unique units can summon minions. Most of them boast high offensive power and speed allowing you to quickly overwhelm your enemies coupled with the fore mentioned team size. Their main drawback is that the faction lack supportive abilities and many of the units aren't very versatile due to being focused on melee offence, thus can easily be destroyed when it comes to survival or stalling. Good thing is that the core units come cheap, and you could use summoning to compensate the potential losses.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1804539548
This mod adds 12 new heroes (2 in each faction) and expands the hero upgrade choices of the original heroes rather than the traditional ones (e.g. Orc can be upgraded to Black Orc instead of Chieftain only).
  • The hero upgrades are based on the hidden or alternative upgrade choices that are possible in the game (So non-hero variants can get that upgrade).
  • Several units are edited to have hero-only upgrade (e.g. Bowman, Skeleton Warrior)
  • Excluding starting heroes, there will be 44 unique heroes you can choose to play as.
  • You can still get the achievements of all the original heroes.


I can only say - Dang! That's a good piece of work. Creating and balancing a faction takes months. Plus Yarrrr created a original way of advancing heroes where you can select the next class. This is something we will definitely use!

Reviews

“Age of Fear succeeds because of its combat: using units to protect fragile allies, incorporating hex-based mechanics without the geometric restriction. The result is some satisfying strategy (...)”
6/8 – Out of Eight

“Age of Fear 2: The Chaos invokes the spirit of early 90s strategy games, before real-time strategy became the fashion and reflexes became more important than tactics. (...) it's not perfect, but it is fun, playable, and challenging, and it shows every sign of rapidly improving itself!”
4/5 – PCWorld
