This time, the sessions will be held three weekends close to each other; Sep 29-30, Oct 13-14 and Oct 27-28. In between each session, based on the community feedback, the developers will adjust the unit balance and make smaller gameplay improvements.
“Our goal with these sessions is to test the newest features and come out with a fun and re-playable multiplayer gameplay”, Co-founder Accel Sjöström says.
And there are a lot of new features implemented. A new hero system with three playable heroes has been addded, new units and structures, updated pathfinding, and much more.
