Hi everyone! It's Mark here with some news about important changes Glenn and I have made to Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus in the latest update.
Titan configuration has replaced variants-based system
The most often requested change to Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus was that we replace the variants-based system with one that allowed players to customise their Titans by choosing their our configurations.
Today, we have taken the first step in giving you greater customisation by replacing the variants-based system with one that offers greater customisation, and that we can further expand as development continues.
At launch, we deliberately limited the Detachment Builder to a system based on pre-configured variants. We did this because the original 6mm rules were variant-based and following suit allowed us to continue to benefit from the original system's inherent balance.
This design decision did not resonate with many players, however, and—following a long review and due consideration—we have changed direction and replaced the Detachment Builder screen with a new Maniple Builder screen that allows players much greater control over Titan configuration.
Chaos Skirmish mode now available
We have made it possible to play as Chaos in the single-player Skirmish mode.
This feature was requested almost as frequently as Titan configuration. We hope Chaos players will enjoy this addition.
For the next few updates, Glenn and I will be focussing on adding the remaining Titan weapon systems. Following that, we will shift our focus to implementing the single-player campaign, which will come in as part of the second Major Update.
There are other as-yet-unannounced things that we cannot yet discuss. Look for formal announcements about these things as development progresses.
Glenn and I want to thank all players in the Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus community for your continued support for us and for Dominus as we undertake our Early Access journey. Your feedback, your Steam reviews and your enthusiasm is always greatly appreciated.
We hope you will continue to add your voices on our Steam Discussions forum, in Discord, on Facebook and on Twitter, sharing your thoughts and opinions with us, and your suggestions as to how we can improve the game and as a team.
