Thanks for Participating in the 8-Bit Armies 2nd Year Celebration!

Hey all!

We just wanted to say thank you to everyone that played, created, and competed over the last month to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary for 8-Bit Armies.

Congratulations to all our winners of the various Steam Gift Packs and Game bundles we handed out. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Everyone should have received their goodies by now, but if you didn't please feel free to let us know and we will look into it.

As you can see, we continue to support the game, so this is by no means the end. While not as frequent, more updates are coming down the road so check back often to see what else is in store for the series.

8-Bit Armies Update #50 - 05/09/18

Welcome to all our new players and all our die-hard fans!

We've just released a patch to re-enable harvester crushing, something many of you remember from our launch and have asked for. Harvester crushing now works in the following way...

  • Multiplayer Quickmatch / Ranked games preserve the no-crushing rule for Guardian and Renegades Harvesters
  • Skirmish and Custom Multiplayer Games now provide a checkbox option for turning harvester crushing on/off.
  • Single & Multiplayer Co-Op campaigns have Harvester Crushing Turned on by default.

Please let us know your thoughts!
