Greetings Harbingers, Heroes, Chosen. It has been some time since the latest update, but with all the recent OS updates and changes, the time has come to do a quick platform update to make sure everything keeps running smoothly. Update #117 specifically includes one bug fix and platform support improvements to keep the game running on all the latest Mac and LInux OS.
We're still working with our patron community to bring the 9th character, Syvana the Witch, to Heroes of Steel. We're posting regular status updates there as her Talent set has now been hammered out and implemented (she's going to shake that meta!). The next update we anticipate for Heroes of Steel will be bringing her to the game.
Our NEXT Turn-Based Tactics Evolution
Our next game, Cyber Knights: Flashpoint successfully kickstartered last year, has been under development for almost 2 years and is coming to Steam in early 2022. Have you wishlisted it?
Heroes of Steel was the tactical turn-based RPG that started all this, with Templar Battleforce following as the next evolution and now Cyber Knights. Flashpoint brings rich turn-based tactical combat and squad-building gameplay you've come to love from the Trese Brothers and pushes it even farther than ever before. Now in the cyberpunk future of 2231, you'll recruit, train and kit out your underworld mercenary company for illicit missions that you'll be able to strategize & prepare for with even greater freedom using our unique heist RPG system.
Mix and match your squad's powerful abilities and cybernetic enhancements to fight, sneak, bribe and hack your way to your objectives and get out before the off-site security starts pouring in. Learn more about the setting and other gameplay elements of Cyber Knights: Flashpoint on its Steam page, or wishlist it right here.
The endless forward march of platforms demands updates for even highly stable games like Heroes of Steel. With Update #117, we've improved our Mac and Linux support for their latest revisions and versions, especially fixing some bugs with Big Sur, Mac OS fullscreen and Linux sound.
A huge thanks to everyone still posting feedback, bugs and suggestions! You're always welcome to discuss build strats and the latest group your running in the #heroes channel of our Discord, or join the hype and build-brainstorming for Cyber Knights: Flashpoint.
