Pax Nova 1.2.0 is now live!

This update brings a few fixes and changes, but more excitingly: an all new FREE DLC for Pax Nova!

Announcing Frostborn, a brand new FREE DLC

We’re super excited to announce the release of the very first DLC for Pax Nova: Frostborn.

This DLC comes with a major graphical update, new content and a brand new planet and biome type, which, as you might guess from the name of the DLC, will be very chilly.

This theme will permeate most of the new content, which includes new unit powers, artifacts, a new creature type, new weapons, technologies and more.

To go with this, we’ve also been hard at work on a new visual upgrade which includes the implementation of temporal AA, several image improvements that include more vivid colors, a subtle new image filter, improved textures, and a distance fog effect which makes the whole game look much crisper, cleaner and generally more pleasant to look at.

We really hope you enjoy it, and as always we’ll be paying close attention to your feedback.

But that’s not all. In case you paid very close attention to what I wrote above, I did mention “first” DLC didn’t I?

But wait, there's more!

The last updates and Frostborn hasn’t been the only thing we’ve been working on. We’ve also been hard at work on a bigger expansion DLC that will add major new features, a brand new race, new factions and a lot of new content, set to be announced soon™ as well.

In addition to all this, we’ll also keep working on updates throughout the year as well as more cool stuff to be announced later on, and we’ll be keeping a very close eye on our community channels looking for any feedback you might have.

In the meantime, we want to thank the community for all the support and we really hope you enjoy this update!
