Tweaks to unit consumption, bug fixes and an updated game engine to help the game run better, faster, stronger.
It's here! This latest update has many new improvements, bug fixes, balancing, performance improvements and additions to the editor.. For those of you who have been playing the pre-release, thank you very much for your feedback and patience. Multiplayer is now available for version 1.28, also.
Highlights of this update include the adjustments to arms and oil to make oil more of a relevant and valuable resource, better combat reports, improvements to priorities and choices the AI makes, and a lot of game balancing based on your feedback.
Complete release notes are HERE
This pre-release update affects only the launcher. The issues around Direct X and fogging should now be fixed.
Note new version number for Launcher:
Game: v1.28.35116.170 (unchanged)
We've posted an update to the 1.28 pre-release. Changes are mostly content balancing for arms/oil consumption, some unit tweaks, and AI work. We hope to have reduced some of the micromanagement from the naval gameplay introduced by the idle arms/oil feature - let us know what you think!
As is already probably clear to everyone, we are not releasing "The Great War" in 2012. We are making great progress on it, but we are determined to only release when we feel the game is ready to go. We aren't there yet. We will have more details about the upcoming beta as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will continue to add improvements to MHII.
Thanks for all your feedback and support!
