Elemental War 2 1.1.3 and fixes a few issues and integrates some of the feedback I got at Polaris.
During the last October weekend I was at Polaris in Hamburg and there I presented Elemental War 2. Of course that way I got a lot more direct feedback than from all the other players that might find problems, but never report them. So update 1.1.3 is mostly feedback from the convention.
Not every feedback is possible to integrate easily and so some things will not be integrated into EW2 anymore, but we will keep them in mind for our future games.
There are few convenience features like 1, 2, 3 on keyboard being assigned for the speed levels now and that you can zoom out even further now to get a better overview. The remaining stuff are mostly bugfixes for issues of any kind, bigger bugs so you can’t complete quests under certain circumstances and smaller stuff like some tooltips being cut off in long languages like German.
You can also check out the new What’s New video of the 1.1.0 release if you haven’t yet:
The next planned regular update is to meant to ensure everything works fine on Steam Deck. I got one last week, but already had to sent it back as during my first test I noticed the display being broken. But I already noted a few minor things and will do more extensive testing once the replacement arrives.
