Default Patch # 20 - Pathfinding & Arcana Expansion Preview

The long awaited Pathfinding Update is finally here, in Patch 20, bringing with it improved performance and a new way of controlling units. Also included as part of Patch 20 is an early release full preview of the free Kingdom Wars: Arcana expansion - giving current players a chance to try out the new units, spells and buildings before the official launch of the expansion to coincide with a big promotion later this month. Please keep in mind that this huge update is and early access release - thus containing some bugs, and stability issues. We will follow up with a patch in a few days to fix most of potential crash issues and other balancing problems and bugs.
