Awakening of the Rebellion 2.7 is the upcoming Version and its a massive Update and Improvement then the actual release Version 2.6. The AI is almost rewritten and will be a challenge as ever before There are new Story Events and reworked existing ones. All Space and Ground-Units are updated and/or replaced with new Models/Textures. New Soundeffects and Music-Tracks, a New Galaxy Map that is almost Canon and new Space and Groundmaps.
Today we are showcasing one of our favourite new mechanics, the Hero Prisoner Mechanic!
With Permadeath now in the Mod we noticed, that some missions that require major heroes can't be finished if the hero dies, so we thought, how can we change that.
Our solution: When a major hero gets killed he will be imprisoned by the enemy! To get him back you have to conquer the random target planet.
This mechanic took some inspiration from Star Wars Rebellion and is a more interesting way to regain heroes than to just wait, atleast in our opinion.
Also if you look closely you will notice that the current Space Tech Level is now show in the buttom right corner as an Objective, so it's easier to know what level you are on.
With that said, stay tuned for further updates, but mostly unit updates since mechanics are now close to being finished.
Best regards MaxiM
