We’ve just launched update 7.4 on iOS, Android and PC (GOG & Steam)!
With this update we start the Season of Mahakam with it’s seasonal mode and special, sturdy-as-a-dwarf, rule set:
Seasonal mode: Entrench
Whenever you play a unit, give it resilience.
Enjoy the rowdy, stubborn playstyle of Mahakam until December 8th, 10 a.m CET!
“But wait there's more!”
Additionally, update 7.4 introduces Journey 3 as well as Draft Early Access, a successor to, now retired, Arena.
