New Main Menu Screen

  • We’ve replaced the old main menu with revamped menu UI as well as a flashy new dynamic background!

New Briefing Flow

  • The pre-combat briefing screen has now been divided into two sections
  • Mission view:

    • Incoming mission panel: this panel reports detailed information on the type of mission you’re going into and how difficult it might be. Here, field traits will help you know what to expect and to equip your squad accordingly
    • Enemy garrison panel: here, information about the enemy branch, level, and their combat strategies are shown
    • 🦾 The improved holo-table now reports Phantom Brigade and enemy spawn points, objective points, retreat zones, and the number of reinforcements expected to arrive
  • Squad view:

    • In squad view, you can review the units you’re taking into combat for any final tweaks
    • Sub-optimal units will be flagged with a warning and list hints on how to improve them here

Scenario and Entity Refactor

  • In order to surface the new scenario and spawn point information in the new briefing view, we’ve had to revise and rename scenarios and entities.
    • As part of this, we’ve also redesigned and rebalanced all scenarios
    • We’d greatly appreciate your feedback on how combat feels!
