Warbanners version 1.2.5. ‘Death Speaker’ DLC now available in Chinese!

Warbanners v1.2.5 adds the Chinese translation for the game's ‘Death Speaker’ DLC. Many thanks to Project Gutenberg |游戏 古 登堡 计划!

Work continues on the translation of Warbanners into French, Spanish and Italian. The transfers are carried out by the efforts of volunteers, so we're not yet able to name the approximate terms of their completion at this time.

Other changes:
- Corrected an error related to when the enemy breaking the barrel with the powder died of the explosion (in fact, we corrected it a week ago, just forgot to write about it in that post).
- Added a damage display that will be applied when using the "Throw Grenade" skill.

Warbanners version 1.2.4.


- Changed the algorithm for equipping enemies with potions. Enemies now have less potions thrown, but more potions drunk. This will reduce the number of debuffs that are imposed on the player's units (due to the fact that the number of thrown potions is less).

- Barrels of gunpowder now explode with one blow. Enemies are now more likely to approach barrels, as well as break them when it’s advantageous to do so.

- Arrows, potions and stones loosed from catapults now move along more natural (parabolic) trajectories.

- In Russian and English versions, the names of the difficulty levels have been changed. "Easy" is now called "Casual", and "Normal" is called "Classic". By default, the game offers to start playing at a "Casual" level of difficulty.

- The amount of gold obtained at the "Casual" level of difficulty has been slightly increased.

- The cost of Brondrin's assistant, who allows you to hire dwarfs, has been reduced from 70 to 50.

- The number of Necromancers in the "Where the dead things are" mission have been reduced at the casual and classic level of difficulty.

Gameplay Tips

- In the second mission, many players don’t seem to understand the importance of using "Liquid Fire". Illumination is one of the key mechanics of the combat system: Please, throw at least one potion at the enemies – you’ll see how your chances of success dramatically increase!

- Another hint with the Necromancers in the "Where the dead things are" mission – we’ve noted many players do not try to address the necromancers first. Necromancers are much more dangerous than zombies or skeletons, destroy them immediately for better results!

If you have suggestions for how we can better illustrate these or any other key mechanics/features, please let us know here on the Steam discussion boards, or on our Discord: https://discord.gg/EQ3VbRd -- and of course if you enjoy Warbanners, please consider telling others that might be interested, posting a review, etc. to help us continue to get the word out. Thanks for your support!

“Warbanners is challenging, tough, and occasionally frustrating. But each victory is as satisfying as it is hard-earned, and well worth the struggle.”

About This Game

Warbanners is a turn-based, tactical strategy game with role-playing elements. Managing a squad of mercenaries, the player will experience the story campaign's 42 missions, battle through a meticulously crafted fantasy world, and achieve the ultimate goal: become a true legend!

Key features:
• Create and modify your unique, well-prepared army; hire and equip soldiers, develop their fighting qualities, and learn new exotic skills.
• Hire assistants! They will not participate in battles themselves, they never engage in dangerous activities, but they will provide you with several bonuses and options. Expect a catapult, poisoned enemies, increased morale, and much, much more.
• Immerse yourself in a multi-faceted battle system that takes into account a variety of factors, including landscape morphology and lighting, each unit's field of view, morale, and even fatigue.
• Manipulate the battlefield environment to gain tactical advantages! Freeze rivers, chop down and burn trees, dig trenches, construct bridges and barricades, and so on.
• Choose the optimal level of difficulty for your tactical fantasy RPG experience; from easy for beginners, to nightmarish for sophisticated tacticians.

With every step you take in Warbanners --each and everyone marked by blood and iron-- an invisible but deadly threat will become more tangible. Darkness itself, brooding in the corners of your soul, shall become ever more palpable.
Who said earning your place among ancient legends would be easy?
