WhiteMoon Dreams has just completed a significant upgrade to the game which brings with it a number of improvements. Here is the latest info:
Greeting WARMACHINE: Tactics Fans!
Unreal Engine 4.9 integration —The most noticeable impact to users will be a boost in performance and stability across most computer configurations. Players on lower end spec machines should be able to play the game with much better success now.
Improved Scenario Visuals — Scenario flags have updated artwork and VFX to more clearly indicate when a zone is neutral, contested or under a faction’s control. When under faction control, the flag will change to that faction’s logo.
New Retribution of Scyrah units — Good news for Retribution players! We’ve added the Chimera Warjack and Halberdier, totally free to those who already play Retribution.
Here’s a summary on the new units: “The Chimera Warjacks and the Houseguard Halberdiers join the forces of the Retribution of Scyrah in their fight to save their gods. The ranks of the Houseguard make up the bulk of the Iosian military might, and the Halberdiers serve as the front line for such forces. They serve both offensively with their strong, brutal charges to cut into the enemy, and defensively with shields locked and their halberds set to receive the enemy charge. The Chimera light Warjack is used to help extend the influence of their Warcaster through its Arc Node. To aid in this task, House Shyeel artificers have outfitted it with the Phantasmal Field to help deflect enemy gunfire and spells, and Apparition aids in allowing the warjack to disengage from enemies in order to bring it’s Arc Node where it’s needed most. With these additions to the Retribution’s arsenal, magic wielders all over Immoren have much to fear.”
Wreck Markers — Wreck markers are now in the game! Thanks to new art and VFX, when a Warjack is destroyed it will turn into battlefield debris and affect the game via rough terrain and cover.
Measuring and LOS Tool — Many players have requested a measuring tool, so now you’ve got one! The measuring tool can be accessed by pressing “Alt+Left Click” and is useful for planning attacks, measuring distances between units, and line of sight.
New Splash Screen — We’ve completely overhauled our splash screen to create a better user and community experience. The new splash screen serves as a hub for community information on tournaments, contests, patch notes and much more!
New VFX and visual improvements— Tons and tons of visual effects improvements. The game looks better and more accurately displays information.
UPCOMING — Our next 2 sprints will focus on multiplayer and matchmaking improvements, as well as many new Retribution and Mercenaries units, a new multiplayer map, 2 list format and store browsing improvements, as well as the physical disk for Kickstarter Backers who pledged for the War Chest, and a direct download option for those not wishing to obtain the game through Steam.
