Thanks to today’s ease of delivering patches and content to keep games alive, we had the opportunity to take Act of Aggression back to the drawing board. And that’s exactly what we have been doing. We’ve been busy identifying the reasons behind the less positive reviews: what we did wrong, what we failed to deliver, and what was expected from us. And, more importantly, what could be done about it.
So here we are, (almost) ready to deliver this massive overhaul. However, we won’t release this Reboot Edition as a regular patch, as it may change AoA too much for those happy with its current iteration. Instead, it will be made available (for free) to every owner of Act of Aggression, to switch between as they see fit.
There are too many changes coming to list here in their entirety. Instead, we’ve summed up just a few of the major ones here, which we will detail in a devblog soon:
- Single-resource economy.
- Improved unit reactivity.
- Unit facelifts.
- Up-front payments for construction.
- and many more ...
We believe all the effort we’ve put into Act of Aggression: Reboot Edition will address most, if not all, the complaints made about the game at release. Before releasing this edition officially, it will be made available on a Steam test branch for anyone willing to try it and give us feedback!
Four points have already been announced. And I got some questions about it. Naturally, I suppose that Eugen won't answer anything, since it is a fragile subject.
-As the name says, will the single-resource economy replace all three resources?
-What does unit facelifting mean(question that concerns only my bad vocabulary)?
-Will unit formations also be improved?
-Will some units be added/reworked(like a Chimera AT Soldier)?
-Will the zoom level be increased/radar view removed?
-Since the update is free, do you hope that the Reboot Edition will also increase its sales(with good advertisement naturally)?
More questions could follow. I know that some questions don't need to be written down(like release date). But I hope that the majority of these questions will/can be answered. Also, I hope that this Reboot edition will bring back some fans...like me.
