This release includes some bugfixes and balance fixes, as well as episode 5 of the Fallen Spire story campaign. The Fallen Spire story is really coming together at this stage, and this also has a lot of refinements to the prior episodes.
Also of significance is that the model for how big waves are has been completely redone. Fear the high AI Progress — for real this time. In general this is attempting to bring back some of that “high AI Progress is super bad” flavor from AI War 2.0 and prior, while removing the insane difficulty of the earliest waves in the last few betas.
