PIRATES!!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1087340/Age_of_Fear_Pirates_Expansion/

Arrrr! Pirates are coming to Pirates DLC!

As requested, we've added some new units to the game and you can recruit them at Salty Tavern (and also later if you're finish DLC):




I'm really sorry that we have not added these units before. Fortunately, the artists could quickly come back with sprites and we created those short-range/melee warriors (we will also add pirate voices in a few days).

I hope the Pirates adventure will play much nicer now ^^

Take care,
Les & AOF Team

UPDATE RELEASED!! (v5.9.7)

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all the amazing support! We read all the opinions and comments of our players. Based on comments, we add the following features (more are coming soon!):

⭐Battles on the world map will have difficulty index (from one to five skulls). There is a rather complex logic when the engine assesses how your team will cope with enemy:



⭐The Pirates! DLC has been extended for an additional content. We are also collecting assets for pirate units. They should be done within a few days, and then we will add them to the next patch.

⭐A few more traits were added: Fatso, Puppet Master, Corrupted, Greed, Savage and Saint (those traits are given based on your units' actions):



⭐A few people missed an upgrade bundle for original Age of Fear: The Undead King owners. It can be found here:
https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/10760/Age_of_Fear_The_Undead_King_Upgrade/


Thank you for being such an amazing community!

Take care,
Les & AOF team
