Armello PS4 v1.3 is Now Live!
« on: June 29, 2016, 04:23:16 PM »


After weeks of battling Unity's PS4 bugs, the day has finally arrived...

v1.3 has just hit PSN and is available for download right now!

What's In It?

Make no mistake. This is a huge update. As promised, this is both v1.2 and and v1.3 all in one big hit... but we've also snuck a bunch of stability improvements and bug fixes in from v1.4 too! That's right.

Some keen observers will notice that the header image for this post has graphics from the Stranger v1.2, but it actually says v1.3. This is because inventory is presently a Steam only feature. Both PlayStation and Xbox have no player marketplace or any trade capabilities whatsoever, but we'd love to get the new dice in the hands of players outside of Steam, someway, somehow.  We're currently investigating ways to get inventory onto both PS4 and Xbox One in a fashion that properly suits both the platform and console experience, so you'll hear from us as soon as we lock down plans for inventory on console.

Other than the absence of the inventory system, PS4 players are completely up to date.

v1.4 and Beyond
We'll be announcing v1.4 for Steam very shortly. The good news for PS4 folks is that the PS4 build of v1.4 is already cooking away and will go live no later than the Xbox One and DLC launch.

Once Xbox One is live, we'll be aligning the consoles to be able to go live simultaneously, following Steam builds as quickly as possible.

Patch Notes
For those wanting more detail, here's the high level of what's in the update that went live today.

The Stranger
- A new and peculiar Follower has arrived in Armello and does not abide by the standard rules. When equipped the Hero will be moved to a random adjacent tile upon the start of every turn.

House Rules
- Introducing 6 x new House Rules to keep your gameplay fresh!

Cards
- Introducing 2 x new Items, a new Spell and Trickery card to aid your adventures.

Card Changes
- There have been a variety of changes to the current Cards in Armello for balancing purposes.

Visual Improvements
- Check out the new particles, improvements and more that we’ve added to make your Armello experience even prettier.

Gameplay Improvements
  • +1 Body to all Heroes has been added.
  • Improvements to the Stealth mechanic. 
  • The Mad King House Rule is now part of standard Gameplay.
  • Zosha’s Hero Power now activates on the Palace as well.
  • Overall Explore balance pass. 

Followers
  • Followers that cost Gold are now free.
  • Followers that cost Rot are unaffected.
  • The Prologue has been updated to reflect this.

Audio Changes
  • New audio assets for hovering and clicking  in various UI assets.
  • New audio assets for the Card Gallery.
  • New sound effect for when the King’s Declaration is announced.
  • Bark Skin sound effect.
  • Blizzard sound effect.

Bug Fixes
Various bug fixes have been implemented


Thanks!

That's about it folks! I've personally watched the entire team work super hard to bring you these updates, so we're excited for our PS4 crew to finally get their hands on it.  I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone for your patience. Being a small team is tough, but it's made even tougher when there are things that are entirely out of our control which affect how and when we get things out to you all - like PS4 bugs on the Unity cycle for example.

Much love! You're the best. xoxo

As Trent stated, we're still nailing down how/when we can implement the Dice Collections. Stay tuned for more info.
