This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Build version 0.4.8b, Hero Pack 3, is now available on the Beta Branch. This update contains 3 new wanderer heroes for you to find, some new enemies to battle as you find them, and a slew of balance updates based on recent player feedback.

Steam achievements for the new heroes are not yet available, but will be added when Hero Pack 3 leaves the beta branch.

How do I download the Beta Branch?

Opting into a Beta branch is easy on Steam. Simply right click Time Break Chronicles in your Library, select Properties, and then click "Betas." From there you can select the Beta branch from the dropdown, and Steam will download the files for you. You do not need to enter a beta access code.

Changelog for version 0.4.8b

There's a lot of balance changes, bug fixes, and various other things in this update. We'll separate everything out below into sections:

New Content/Features
