Hamburg, Germany, 07 October 2011 – Steel Legions, the free 3D-Browser-MMO from Splitscreen Studios will get a spectacular update titled Warfare with exciting new features and items on 2nd of November. The Warfare expansion brings even more firepower to the fights and intensify the conditions between the empires on the battlefield. One of the most important elements is the dynamics of the game map on which players struggle to keep as many as possible of their empires buildings functioning.
Players’ tanks can now be equipped with new modules which unlock a wide variety of powerful bonuses over a certain time period. The Warfare update brings the first type of modules, the experience modules, into the Steel Legions universe. The experience modules have an especially strong effect, particularly in regard to fast upgrades, because the points earned can be quickly doubled or tripled. The experience modules can be earned through outstanding achievements of an empire or the Dominator of the Mission. In addition as the most successful player of the winning team, the Dominator of the Mission will now receive up to five bonuses from the gold coffer per day, instead of just the previous one.
The new marketplace
The new marketplace will open in the headquarters of each empire. There, players can purchase effective item sets and various premium offers and at the same time exchange their hard-earned medals for extensive advantage packages. The offers in the marketplace will be expanded more and more over the upcoming weeks and months.
New weapons systems
With the Kinetic Deflector, the engineers of the mighty battle behemoths have entered new territory. The Deflector allows pilots to reflect enemy projectiles so that enemy tanks get a taste of their own salvos. The tank being fired on does continue to take damage, but weaker units in particular can defend themselves much more successfully against well-equipped rivals. With the new Mazer Cannon, on the other hand, pilots can take an active role in the war and fire electromagnetic waves, massively affecting the attackers’ firing precision and making them fire at nothing.
New oil refinery
In the Steel Legions universe, oil is the most important raw material. Without it, the mighty steel constructions of the empires would not be able to fight. The competition for the control of the oil rigs is even more essential for success. The team which has the most active oil refineries will receive regular experience boosters and can thus equip their units even faster.
Victory and defeat will have an even more merciless effect on the competing empires in Steel Legions.
