Patch # 22 - Setting Things Right
Just in time for the official Arcana expansion launch tomorrow, we are releasing Patch 22 and setting more than a few things right. The team has put in a lot of extra hours as we work to fix all the issues that originated in Patch 20, as well as various other bugs that have been in-game since release.
With Patch 22, players will notice significantly better performance, more stable gameplay and improved pathfinding.
One note - if you still have any units that are stuck on your homeland, please move them out to world map and back to your hometown.
With the Arcana expansion out and the game in the best shape it has ever been in, we are starting on our next big project that will change Kingdom Wars forever. It might take us some time to prepare - but it will be well worth the wait. We will provide details in due time, but for now though it remains a secret, just know there are big things on the horizon.
See you on the battlefield!
