We are currently working on the final major update to Xenia’s Ark before the release. We have completed the development of the final major features. Currently we are doing internal testing to ensure everything is in order and working as expected and soon we will have a new build on the “development” branch on Steam. We expect to have that build available in the first week of February.
Features being added:
- Competitive Player AI: There are now computer players in the game who are competing against you to win the game. You can choose how many you are playing with in the game lobby before launching a new game. These computer players will interact with you in a variety of ways.
- End Game Event: The end game event will now trigger in the late part of the game. You will have options as to how you want to take on this event with the opportunity to work together with computer players or take on this threat alone. Should you survive the end game event, you will be crowned victorious!
- Espionage system: Once you have discovered the required technology, you will be able to train Spies. Spies are capable of offensive and defensive actions. You can send your Spy to infiltrate a foreign city and a variety of missions will become available to you. There are 3 main categories of mission types: Sabotage, Espionage and Covert Ops.
- Diplomacy system: This system will allow you to interact with the computer players in a variety of ways. This is where you can declare war, establish treaties and form trade agreements.
