Hell has frozen over! After two years the new version of of Mental Omega has finally been released. While 3 out of the 8 final missions are still in the works, the big everything else has already been finished, and thus, after deciding to split this release - version 3.3.5 with its major campaign overhaul is now out!
All of our singleplayer and multiplayer missions have been heavily revamped, with their visuals, script and even bits of lore reworked to various extent. We have further adjusted the difficulty of the campaigns, making sure that Easy setting, now known as Casual, becomes more accessible to everyone, while Mental retains, if does not up the challenge a bit. In addition to this revamped campaign, we have prepared 6 new Special Operations and 1 new Co-Op, which replaces one of the previous maps.
- Allied Special Op Mission Digital Demon
- Allied Special Op Mission Convergence
- Allied Special Op Mission Parasomnia
- Soviet Special Op Mission Trophy Hunter
- Epsilon Special Op Mission Fallen Ashes
- Epsilon Special Op Mission Split Seconds
- Epsilon Co-Op Mission Monochromatic
What's more, new Challenge maps have been designed and added to the game, four of them.
- Aberration Challenge against all 3 Allied subfactions with a tech level switcher
- Ironwall Challenge against the armies of China with a powerful experimental weapon
- Gladiators Challenge where your enemy has advanced weapon-disabling effects in use
- Judgement Challenge where a mysterious force is capable of perishing all of your bases
There's been a whole lot of balance changes, new units, structures and powers added to the tech tree, as well as numerous other additions and bugfixes. The changelog for this update is the largest so far, with many of its additions possible by AlexB's continuous efforts with Ares DLL. See the full changelog here.
