Give a tip:
AGE OF BLOODSHED 2.13 RISE OF THE NETHER KING
Changes from 1.08 to 2.13
+ Campaign Mission 30 "INNER STATE" has received dozens of minor edits and the player now starts with more resources and in the Castle Age.
+ INNER STATE has been made a little easier because it was a brutal and unyielding mission.
+ Mission 30, "INNER STATE" has reduced in difficulty. The mission now goes from "Impossible" to just "Very Hard".
+ Ten new Rise of The Nether King missions added to the Age of Bloodshed Campaign.
+ All new missions are made automatically available without needing to beat the previous missions.
+ A few units have been re-balanced.
+ Earlier Campaign Missions may have also received minor updates and format changes.
+ Total number of Age of Bloodshed Campaign Missions has been increased from 30 to 40.
+ Enjoy Rise of The Nether King!
+ Color 7 "Gray" now has a lighter minimap color that's not white, but a slightly bluish hue.
Color 7 units will now have blue and black stripes to better differentiate between Color 7 and Color 8.
If you are a veteran of Age of Bloodshed, you know that Color 8 is not orange, it is black.
Further testing and experimentation will be required to enable all 15 colors. But for now, remember that Colors 7 and 8 are custom.
