If this is the first time you're hearing about the game, click here to see what it's all about. And if you've been following our progress over past few months, read on to see everything that's changed!

New Things

Legion Hearts Tutorial Dialog

  • ADDED TUTORIAL CAMPAIGN
    We added a new tutorial campaign featuring three simple battles to get new players familiarized with the base mechanics of the game.
  • ADDED COMBAT SEEDS
    Each battle now has a unique seed. Doesn’t do much now, but this will enable saving, loading and sharing battles in the future.

Legion Hearts Battle System Scre

  • ADDED NEW UI
    The first iteration of the new UI is here to match all the gameplay changes we've worked on in the last couple of updates.
  • ADDED MISSING TOOLTIPS
    Campaign tooltips and rewards, as well as the units in the roster screen now carry tooltips.

Legion Hearts Character Collecti

  • ADDED CHARACTER UNLOCKS
    You can now unlock characters to add and remove from your play deck.
  • ADDED APP ICON
    The game executable now uses the Legion Hearts icon. Hurray!

Changes

Legion Hearts V011 Campaign

  • TEST CAMPAIGN DIFFICULTY INCREASED
    The 5 campaign battles have been rebalanced as a consequence and should now prove to be slightly more challenging to overcome.
  • RETRIES ARE LIMITED
    Battle retries in the campaign are now limited to more accurately reflect the intended game difficulty.
  • STREAMLINED CHARACTER ABILITIES
    We reduced the amount of abilities per character to 1. Most characters retained their gameplay identity, but there have been some changes to make sure each class has some representation.
  • ADDED MERGE CAP
    All characters can now inherit between 1 and 3 characters depending on their merge capacity. The doomstack Kali strategy was a little bit too overpowered!
  • MERGES ARE LIMITED
    Character merges after battle are now limited to better reward being conservative with your units.
  • NERFED PERKS
    The heal and attack perks are now half as strong to better compete with the other perks.

Fixes

Legion Hearts V011 Combat Toolti

  • FIXED HUNG TURN PROCESSING
    Fixed an issue where certain abilities would prevent the turn queue from processing, effectively freezing the battle.
  • FIXED CARD DRAW
    Fixed an issue where the card draw would incorrectly reference the deploy limit, resulting in a lower amount of cards being drawn at the start of battle.
  • FIXED VALKYRIE DEATH TRIGGER
    Fixed an issue where the battle retry screen would not appear if the Valkyrie character died against a counter status effect on her own turn.
  • FIXED DEPLOY COST CONSUMPTION
    Fixed an issue where deploying a unit would not deduct its energy cost from the energy pool.
  • FIXED END OF CAMPAIGN LOADING
    Fixed an issue where clicking on the exit node in the campaign would result in an indefinite loading screen.
  • FIXED SUPPORT ABILITY TARGETING
    Fixed an issue where supports with the targeting parameters “Next Ally” would not acquire a new target if their original target was no longer valid.
  • FIXED RELOCATING DURING PAUSE
    Fixed an issue where units could be relocated mid-battle after clicking the pause button.
  • FIXED ENEMY DEPLOYMENT
    Fixed an issue where units could be deployed on the enemy grid, resulting in unit icon being permanently left on the screen.
  • FIXED STUCK UNITS
    Fixed an issue where units carried over from the previous battle could not be relocated on the grid before deploying a new unit.
  • FIXED TARGET PARAMETER LABEL
    Fixed an issue where the target parameters for Next Ally, Own Row, Enemy Row and Enemy Lane displayed incorrect names.
  • FIXED INCORRECT CHARACTER TOOLTIPS
    Fixed an issue where the tooltips for health and power were swapped on character cards.
  • FIXED EMPTY TURN QUEUE
    Fixed an issue where the turn queue would be empty after retrying a battle until it was manually opened again.
  • FIXED BLOCKED HEXES
    Fixed an issue where hexes that a newly deployed unit died on would become blocked when trying to deploy the same unit again after retrying a battle.
  • FIXED TURN QUEUE TOGGLE
    Fixed an issue where the turn queue would display characters in hand instead after retrying a battle.
  • FIXED UNIT ABILITY USAGE
    Fixed an issue where a unit would not use its ability if the target unit died before the ability trigger.
  • FIXED BATTLE MEMORY
    Fixed an issue where the previous formation would not be loaded properly when retrying a battle.
  • FIXED CARD DRAW ON RETRY
    Fixed an issue where new cards would be drawn when retrying or reentering a battle in the campaign instead of loading the same conditions.
  • FIXED DEATH COUNTER
    Fixed an issue where the fallen units counter would not increment correctly.
  • FIXED UNITS REMAINING IN DECK COUNTER
    Fixed an issue where the deployed units would also count towards the remaining drawable units in the deck.
  • FIXED MERGE SLOT CALCULATION
    Merging fallen units that have already merged with another unit now require the respective amount of free merge slots on the destination unit.
  • FIXED STUCK UNITS (AGAIN)
    Fixed an issue where deploying a unit that was already selected in the deploy tab would cause it to become stuck on the grid.
  • FIXED GHOST TARGET HIGHLIGHTS
    Fixed an issue where clicking on empty hexes in the merge screen where an enemy unit was deployed would show a ghost target highlight.
  • FIXED HEAL ON RETRY
    Fixed an issue where units would be fully healed when retrying battles.
  • FIXED STAT INCREASE CALCULATION
    Fixed an issue where certain stat increasing effects would not include power gained from perks when applied.
  • FIXED EFFECT APPLICATION
    Fixed an issue where certain abilities would not apply their status effects to all targets of an AoE attack.
