UPDATE RELEASED (v5.3.8): COOLDOWN AND LOCATIONS!!



Hi all,

This patch is full of enhancements, optimisations and improvements - we have been working hard over a number of months to make the game look better. We also continue to work on Global Events, Player Bases and a few novel mechanics.

It’s all thanks to community inputs - thank you, you guys rock!

Also, special thanks are due to Cornish Knight who did a comprehensive LP and review - more details of his channel are below.

We have added:

  • new COOLDOWN mechanics - majority of spells have a cooldown. This has been introduced mainly to encourage the use of a variety of spells (not just Fireball-Fireball-Fireball). I hope this will make series more interesting:


  • update: all LOCATION ICONS were coloured and replaced in AOF2 and AOF3. The map is much more colourful now:


  • new item type: HEADGEAR - all crowns, helmets, face masks, etc. go there (so amulet slot remains free). There is a number of additional items in progress:


  • new icons for: Royal Guard and Greater Banshee

  • new: Wasp Nest - it’s similar to Wyvern Eggs but spawns Wasps when destroyed:

    Killer Wasp and Nest

  • new: Petrification for Nagas - instead of being killed, the unit is turned into Stone (with 1 HP and physical resistance)

  • new: Marker for targets if unit has MultiAttack and has moved (helps to see which units are targeted between Undo-ing)

  • update: unit will regenerate Morale if it’s left idle and unblocked at the end of a turn

  • update: Luck gives unit a 50% chance of surviving a killing blow (Goblins + Dryads)

  • update for goto-random-battle and goto-random-shop - now you can specify the next level (or on-win and on-lose levels for battle). This is for modders only - therefore you could now use those commands to build a whole procedurally generated campaign if you wish so :)

  • update: Imps are recruitable in Chaos campaign (they are also summonable)

  • balance: Unicorn appears earlier and is balanced better

  • balance: Power Concentrate immediately gives +3 MP and then regenerates +3 MP per turn

  • balance: Divine Shield gives physical resistance, mind spells immunity and also gives 3 HP (temporary). Magic Points cost lowered to 3 MP

  • balance: Magic Burn Attack immediately burns 3 MP and the following Magic Burn has -3 MP for 2-4 turns. It should finally become useful

  • balance: all Demons have Fire Resistance (native or as upgrade)

  • balance: Stoneskin, Hypnotise, Weakness have reduced duration to 2/3/4 turns

  • balance: Holy Light and Curse have Attack bonus -2 (from -3)

  • balance: Magic Resistance/Magic Immunity prevent 1 Magical Damage

  • balance: some units have Magic Vulnerability (+1 damage received from spells)

  • bugfix: dead units were regenerating magic points

  • bugfix: healing spells don’t work on Demons

  • bugfix: items’ dependency chain (if item is removed, other items will be removed too if they depend on skill generated by first item in chain)

  • bugfix: attributes on killed polymorphed unit will expire normally


    Also, Cornish Knight has finished AOF3 LP! The whole series is here:

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
