Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand-hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! It's the Personality Patch!

After many hours of hard graft below deck, after training with our axes for many days and nights without a stop for a drink or a toilet break, and after months of bloody toil at the big white forge in the sky, the 2.4 update is finally here!

We've been blabbering about it for months, so here's one last bit of gabber for you to absorb whilst Steam updates the game for ye. This update is chiefly about new unique voices for each class, the new game mode, Trinket Wars, the return of an old favourite map and a shipload of bugfixes.
To view the complete list of changes, click 'ere!

Over the year following version 2.3's release, we've been hard at work expanding our team, improving the game, and adding new features for all 'ye landlubbers to sink your teeth into. We know you've all been patiently waiting for a preview of 2.4, so here it is!

One major feature of our new patch will be the introduction of a new game mode called Trinket Wars. Trinket Wars will replace the current Holy Grail mode, and bring a new level of team-oriented combat to the game. The mechanics are simple - each team has its own trinket to look after. As each team scores kills in the presence of their trinket carrier, they earn points toward victory. Killing an opposing team's trinket carrier awards your team a point, subtracts one from the enemy team, and replenishes health and armor to those who witnessed it. Today we introduce map tw_Temple with updated Captain voices!...
