To war! To victory! To patching!
The battle cry has gone out for Eternal Crusade founders, who can now download and try out the game’s fifteenth patch. There are two significant changes with this update: the addition of a stronghold game mode (featuring the Imperial Fortress Harkus) and the increase of map capacities to 64 players. The patch also throws in a couple of new weapons, a UI overhaul, and new voiceovers.
Stronghold mode will feature two sides, attackers and defenders. If attackers can take all of the capture points by the end of the timer, they win; otherwise the defenders emerge victorious. Defenders only have a limited number of lives to compensate for the advantage of hunkering down in a fortress.
The team warned players that the patch was put together quickly and is “rough around the edges,” so if you’re trying it out, expect some issues and frequent hotfixes.
