David Benefield Posted June 28, 2018 Share Posted June 28, 2018 Hello Beta Folk! The Team has been working hard on getting Version 1.2 ready. This is a bigger patch stuffed with a bunch of fixes, some new features, and some balance changes (see notes below). Windows and OSX version are now available on the beta branches on both Steam and GOG. Linux needs to have an issue resolved before we can add that to the beta for Steam. We'd really like your help in making sure that these changes & fixes are not having any unintended effects on your game. Specifically, please keep an eye out for: Cases where click-ables cannot be clicked (related to our Fog of War changes) Class/abilities not working correctly (related to our changes for Mod support) Thank you so much for your help in testing out these beta patches!
