Introducing PHOTO MODE

Commander, we have installed state of the art photo journalist equipment on the Bop Utility Bots! Access the command panel using the menu button, then select PHOTO MODE.

Whilst in Photo Mode you can move around the battle and observe the events of a singularity time frame!!

We should really use this tech to escape the supremacy... But at least we have PHOTOMODE!

  • Warship weakpoints appear more often.
  • Missing achievements added to Hedra and Sovereign.
  • Missing intro cutscene dialogue now appears correctly.
  • Hedra mission no longer says "dh".
