Patch 2.0.5 Release Notes

War for the Overworld

v2.0.5: “Relentlessly Researched Ravines”

Release Notes

Darkest Greetings Underlord,

As promised in our previous post we are unleashing Patch 2.0.5 upon the world. This update comes with a number of tweaks and improvements to the game, chiefly a set of additional Unit VO for units which were previously overly quiet. As always we’ve also addressed a number of bugs which you have reported to us over the past few weeks and months, including a fix for a significant issue which affected GOG users on the installer version of the game.

We thank our fans for your patience as we address your reports, although WFTO is now in maintenance mode we still take your reports seriously and encourage you to report any issues you encounter to our Userecho support site. This will allow us to triage and subsequently address issues if we can.

Don’t forget that our first Community Spotlight since 2.0 released is on its way this week so keep your eyes peeled Underlord! We’ll be bringing you a selection of great maps to add to your ever growing collections.

Now onto the Release Notes!
