Ancient Frontier Patch 1.11



Greetings Commanders!

This is a small follow up patch to the release of the new DLC, and only makes two changes:

First, we have performed another round of optimization. This should allow the game to run better on people running with only 8GB of RAM. You also may notice slightly shorter loading screens.

Second, we should have fixed a bug that could cause the "Launch" button to become obscured on some resolutions with the new DLC.


We hope you enjoy these updates, and thank you for playing our game!


** Edit: Also fixed a bug where when loading old saves crew were not available for purchase. You can now purchase crew from the store in your old saves as well as new games.

“If you like traditional, hexy turn based strategy there’s no reason you won’t enjoy this and there’s quite a lot of it to go through.”
