Let’s Play – Worldmap Update, Episode 2

Our new Let’s Play series in anticipation of the update coming on Monday, the 29th, continues with episode 2 today. We make some crowns on the side by trading and take on our first contract to hunt down bandits. Sadly, not all Battle Brothers shall return unscathed…

Preview Twitch Stream with ZiggyD

Youtuber and Streamer ZiggyD will do an exclusive preview live stream of the update. Depending on where you’re at, it’ll be on Friday the 26th (today!) at 7:00pm PST, or Saturday the 27th at 3:00am GMT / 2:00pm AEDT.

At least one of us developers will be hanging around in the Twitch chat as well, so if you want to talk to us or ask us anything about the game, this is a great opportunity. You can find ZiggyD’s Twitch channel here: http://www.twitch.tv/ziggydlive

Last Warning!

The upcoming update will break savegames! If you want to keep playing your current campaign you should disable automatic updates on Steam for Battle Brothers!

    Is loot working the same way as the Amber Shards you’ve acquired in Blankwasser? I mean, is the value of the treasure shown only an estimate, not the actual price you will get when selling it in the city?

    I really like how it looks and that it effectively increases the gold gain from managing to accomplish a task. The contract money alone wouldn’t be worth enough for such severe loss of brothers in battle and that was some pretty hard battle do, judging by the equipment of your foes.

    You liars! There are some changes to the perk tree after all! :)
    Hold Out switched places with Nine Lives and Fast Adaption switched with Head Hunter.
    Very good changes! In fact I was planning on writing a post about perk tree balance and switching Hold Out for Nine Lives was exactly one of the changes I wanted to propose. I’m glad I waited until the update hits :P.

      Yeah. We’ll do real work on the perk system later on, but we still wanted to fix some obvious balance problems right now. There’s a third perk we changed quite a bit on: Perfect Focus.

        BTW, what your plans for the perk revamp? What are your goals? Make some perks more popular?

    I sharpened my ax. I am waiting. And a couple of my friends – streamers too. I do not even know that it is more difficult – to defeat the orcs for 7800 or to wait …

    I am at work, but I will be hitting refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh and refresh again on the site today :D —– cannot wait.

    My hopes:

    1) Goodies look excellent, I hope I will enjoy them as much as it seems
    2) That the balancing has been improved from the last update, almost invariably my party did not make it through the first Orc or Goblin battle last update… those 2 factions were, simply, overpowered, and the undead underpowered after the removal of the Necromancer.
