New Content.

■ 86K-c “Ranseur”

○ Class: Assault Tank

○ Faction: Colonial

○ This evolution of the “Bardiche” is fitted quad-mounted RPG launchers paired with a high-velocity 12.7mm cannon. The “Ranseur” indicates progress in Kraunian design as they continue to leverage outdated equipment to create deadly, modern armour. ■ Gallagher Highwayman Mk. III

○ Class: Cruiser Tank

○ Faction: Warden

○ Colm Gallagher’s engineers designed a variation of the Outlaw that features an independently rotating MG turret sitting atop the main armament of twin anti-tank cannons. What it lacks in raw firepower compared to its older sibling, the Highwayman more than makes up for it with versatility.


New Features.

Fully tracked vehicle controls have an alternative control scheme that can be toggled in the options menu.

■ Localisation has returned and remains a work in progress for the following languages. ○ Chinese.
