Alpha 4.0! - New Island Arena, New Character and More!

Alpha 4.0! Our next big update is here! That's right, we've been hard at work looking at some of the more intricate parts of GOTP but we have also spent time looking at some of the suggestions from our last public event way back in August.

Update 4.0 Trailer

Meet Captain Finley!

Finley, the Captain of The Krakens Kurse (His Ship), sails the seven seas in search of treasure and booty to be plundered. Stolen from his time he is now forced to fight against the other chosen ones in a battle to decide once and for all who the ultimate Guardian will be! Hopefully, you guys will have as much fun as we did customising him, sporting some cool tidal tattoos that match his team colour too!

Obviously, those who've been following us and saw the last major content update would have seen this coming, as every Guardian has home turf where in which you guys can battle it out! that being said the last update contained Finleys ship itself as one of his accompanying Levels! as we already have two levels from The Medieval Realm we figured that a second was in order along with Captain Finley himself!

Take the battle ashore with the new Island map!

Complete with cannons and treasure chests, this map features two adjacent islands connected via a "very safe" ropebridge. Be sure to steer clear of the edges as the shark and piranha-infested waters will most definitely be your demise! and if that wasn't enough cannonballs being fired from every angle should do the trick, get hit by one of those guys and you'll almost certainly end up in the drink.

Finally, we'd like to announce a new game mode that you can check out on all of the existing maps as well as the new ones. Sometimes it can get a little tricky when it comes to setting up the battlefield before you crush your enemies in battle, that's why we've now introduced a more streamlined way of playing.

Introducing Brawl Mode!

Brawl Mode is for players who just wanna get down and dirty and battle right away without worrying about setting up the arena! Digi the drone does all the hard work for you! he'll wander around the map as you play, constructing traps in devious places for you to launch each other into. Digi hates crowded tiles so if somebody is in the way that unsuspecting player will be in for a little shock!

Patch Notes

  • Added new character Captain Finley.
  • Added the abilty to switch characters in the Lobby Menu.
  • Added new map called The Island.
  • Added new gamemode called Brawl Mode.
  • Added collision for cannonballs.
  • Added sound effects to cannonballs.
  • Added a critical launch sound effect.
  • Added in custom mode which allows per map gamemodes to be selected.
  • Optimised online play to help it run better.
  • Fixed a bug which stopped the ship map from being selected at random.
