Awesomenauts Deploys Patch 1.1

Scheduled to be released on July 23rd, Romino Games will be launching patch 1.1 for Awesomenauts, featuring two new playable characters and some balance changes.

On the back of 1.5 million games having been played across Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, the first major content patch for Awesomenauts is just about here and has plenty to love.

The game’s first female character will be one of the two new heroes for players to choose. Coco Nebulon is a melee support who’ll be flying across the map at quick speeds on top of her electric hoverboard. The second character is a ranged tank, Derpl Zork. Derpl’s focus will be snaring enemies in place and then launching deadly holocats at them. You heard that right. Holocats. Explosive holocats to be precise.

In addition, the patch will feature various bug fixes, as well as countless balance updates to all heroes already in play.

Here’s the full patch notes straight from the Awesomenauts website:

Coco Nebulon
Hailing from a psyonic race on Okeanos, Coco is known as the cosmic waveblazer. Describes herself as hot & cool at the same time.

Excerpt from her spacelog: “It’s just like, dude, I was cruisin’ the galaxy, you know, in this totally tubular space-van, searching for the best cosmic waves man.”

Fast, melee, support.

Skill 1: Blaze
Temporarily, Coco’s hoverboard leaves a trail of electricity.

Skill 2: Ball lightning
Shoot a ball lightning. Detonate it any time with a second press.

Main attack: Shock
Channel Coco’s psycho-electric powers through her unfortunate enemies.

Movement: Ollie
Hoverboard jump, with a chance to do a front-flip. Tubular!

Derpl Zork
Riding his combat walker onto the battlefield, comes Derpl Zork. The nephew of Blabl Zork, president of Zork industries, Derpl lacks his uncle’s business-smarts. In fact he lacks any kind of smarts: his IQ is even rated under the level of plankton in the official galaxial IQ test. He loves hunting cats, though.

Medium speed, medium ranged, tank.

Skill 1: Grid trap / Nuke
Deploy traps that will ensnare enemies, locking them in place. Nuke in siege mode.

Skill 2: Siege mode
Transform into a static siege mode, enabling deadly weaponry.

Main attack: Cat shot / Gatling fire
Mew enemies into oblivion by shooting explosive holocats. Fast shooting gatling fire in siege mode.

Movement: Jetboost
Derpl’s walking desk has a temporary jet boost. Hold [ABT_FACE_BOTTOM] to ascend!

There are now 10 levels of prestige, each with its own unique icon.

General fixes

-Many fixes to the leaderboards. Since rankings were very broken before, they have now been reset, while played/wins statistics will remain in place. New rankings numbers will be around 10,000 instead of around 1,000.
-Several network fixes to reduce the number of Network Errors.
-PS3 only: Fixed a rare crash when a Clunk with very low health who is charging his Detonation skill is interrupted and killed by Leon’s tongue. This only happened on PS3 and only on the server when at least one of the two was a bot.
