Patch 06 Notes – Wardog Fury Update

Wardog Fury, Raiders of the Broken Planet’s second campaign, launches on November 30, introducing new missions, characters and weapons to the game.

These new elements, and the information gathered during the two months since Raiders of the Broken Planet launched, influenced further changes in the game. In this Patch 06 notes we’ll take you through the most ambitious update for Raiders of the Broken Planet to date. 


Missions:

Overall, we are happy with the way the different missions play, requiring different strategies and characters for the best results. We have introduced several tweaks to difficulty settings in some of them to adjust win-rates, slightly reducing the bonus enemy spawn rate during the survival phases, for example.

When using invitations, it’s easier now to understand if the level is playable or not thanks to a new tooltip that displays the availability for every user. Mission-specific changes are: 

Hanging by a Thread

• Increased Lycus' crane health in Solo mode.

• Reduced the enemies spawn rate during the mission’s first and second phases when playing against an Antagonist.

• Reduced the Wardog gunships' health points.

In Shock:

• Increased Shae's resistance to electrocution in Solo mode.
