Pathos Interactive’s medieval-based real-time strategy game, Bannermen, received a major post-launch content update today.
This content update brings the game’s version number up to 1.1.0. Coming with it are a bunch of additions, such as new units, new maps, bug fixes, and other community-requested features. Here’s an entire list of changes, according to the game’s press release:
- Two new unitsare now available: The Vanguard and Ballista. The Vanguard is a semi-armored melee unit with an impressive attack range and even more impressive defensive abilities. The Ballista is a heavy range unit with an unrivaled attack range. Ballista has a special ability that allows them to fire an arrow with a chain attached to the unit. When the arrow makes contact with the enemy, the Ballista pull the enemy in close for an easier defeat.
- A new skirmish map is included in the update. The map can hold up to four players and is designed especially for 2v2 games, but it also plays well in 1v1.
- In-game chat is now available, as requested by the community.
- Tactical pause has been added, as requested by the community. Pause your game, rework your battle plans in response to your enemy’s previous actions, then un-pause and continue the battle.
- A third difficulty level has been added to the campaign, making Bannermen more welcoming to casual players and newcomers to the Real-Time Strategy genre
