Back to News Listing A community update for Armageddon!

Posted: Monday, October 2, 2017 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

A few months ago Slitherine was contacted by a computer engineer from Turkey (birthplace of the Emperor, beloved by all) called Gunes Kuday. He is a fan of Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon and he proposed to work on a free update for it. There were some aspects of the game he wanted to improve, so we gave him the source code and he has worked since then to expand the game.

 

We are happy to announce that the first community update for Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is now ready!

 

It is a completely free and optional update, one that you can now download easily from this link or this one. It is stand-alone, you just need to have the base version of Armageddon installed on your computer (either the Slitherine or Steam version).

 

To play it, after downloading, unzip the files and put them in a new folder on your hard drive, not in your game files folder, and run ArmageddonGame.exe.

It is a stand-alone: you can just download, place the files in a new folder, and play, without needing to install anything! You only need the base game installed on a different folder on your computer.

 

Thank you so much Gunes for your hard work!

For this occasion, we are also putting Armageddon and all its DLCs on sale for one week! Don’t miss it!

 

 

New features

 

Fourth weapon option to any unit and new GUI

It is now possible to mod the game and add a fourth weapon to any unit, and it will be shown in every screen in the game! Furthermore, Baneblades were given extra weapons to fill the 4th slot, and they are now more powerful than before.

 

 

 

Siege weapon trait

Now the “siege” weapon trait makes it ignore half of the target’s cover bonus, making all siege weapons really good at hitting units in cover.

 

 

Terror weapon trait

Now weapons with the Terror trait will cause 10 points of extra morale damage, making them extremely effective at destroying the enemy morale.

 

AA Weapon trait

AA Weapons will now have 100% accuracy against Flying units. Did you ever find that those deffkoptas were a thorn in your side? Fear no more and use those AA guns!

Aggressors - Dev Interview!

Friday, May 18, 2018

We had the chance to chat a bit with Pavel Kubat, developer of Aggressors, our epic upcoming 4x game set during Ancient Rome!
 
Matrix: First of all, thanks a lot for your time and congrats for the outstanding job with this game so far. What moved you to adopt the Ancient Mediterranean during the period of the rise of Rome as setting?
 
Pavel Kubat: The Aggressors was initially supposed to be released as a multimod game, but I eventually realized that this was simply not possible. Not just because we had a very small development team, but also because the amount of testing required and likelihood of bugs would not let us finish it.
