You can now play as a female and male in KAG and customize your character looks! Other than that we brought you: new platform bridges, better sword fights with swords clashing, fixed collision bugs and jumps and the usual pile of fixes.

Good news for anyone who's paid for the full version - you're getting new stuff for your money now!

Remember this?

I'm sure you do ;)

Gender swapping is available to everyone using the Misc [BACKSPACE] menu.

Head customisation is now available to all paid players in-game in all servers. Enjoy wearing flashy hats, helmets and haircuts in-game! For those that have been hoping for a more custom (Do-it-yourself) form of customisation - patience! We're contemplating adding that but will need to figure out a way of making it ergonomic for you guys...

Knight combat has been changed fairly significantly:

  • Two colliding hits will now bounce off each other!
  • Getting hurt interrupts charging (this applies to archers too)
  • Jab no longer stuns but does push away (this applies to builder hits too)
  • If two knights jab or slash at each other they clash!

    Not actual game footage.

Other key changes include bridges being two way platforms and not blocking arrows (allowing for quite complicated team-only structures and elaborate traps, not to mention disguised pathways and more intuitive elevators than doorladders as well as being pretty crap for skybridging now as you can be shot with ease).

Just press [S] (crouch) on a bridge to fall off it.

The camera is now fixed on the player. You can scroll by moving your mouse to the edge of the screen. This change is mainly for new players (especially ones that never played Soldat). You can easily return to the old camera system in main menu -> Player.

An arrow indicating bomb throw direction, many UI improvements (catapult menu especially), a bunch of things to assist in making guards lives easier including the name of anyone causing a collapse in the console, and the usual pile of tweaks likely to garner a thousand complaints ;) (although we tested these for nearly a week to make sure they are good)
