Awakening of the Rebellion 2 is something completely new compared to version 1.1, as you now get an improved techsystem which is linked to the shipyard system, story events that let you reenact famous situations from the moves, as well as a completely overhauled balancing. Videos, voiceovers, new sounds as well as particle effects let AotR 2 become the most intense StarWars experience you ever had.
Here's a proof of concept we've been working on to bring something fresh to EaW ground buildings. You will now be able to upgrade certain buildings to give you larger garrisons, better production capabilities, and more credits.
However, each unit is planned to have a certain amount of weekly upkeep. If you find yourself a bit short on cash, you can downgrade a building and receive the difference back into your galactic reserve (and have a cheaper upkeep as a result). This is just a simple prototype and we plan to do a lot more with this system in the future!
