Matrix Games, Slitherine, and Western Civilization Software have released this major new v1.5 update for the tactical turn-based World War II game Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear!. The second update contains fixes and improvements to overall gameplay as well as knocking out a few bugs.
This will be the official version for the upcoming Conflict of Heroes tournament at The Wargamer (www.wargamer.com). More information on that can be found here.
Players can look forward to the addition of terrain sculpting controls to the editor to allow them to make more varied and diverse maps on their own. We also added in a new option to show elevations in a more high-contrast style which is closer to the original board game maps while also making the elevations easier to see for players who use the top-down view.
This update includes many other improvements, including fixes for all the reported bugs since release, as well as audio notification for multiplayer chat messages, a new preference to always display units above the terrain, unit tooltip information for carried units, additional damage types (including Berserk) and full implementation of the extra 1d6 APs card for groups.
