Release Version 1.4.0 - Shifters Expansion

Patch 1.4.0[edit]

Additions (Shifters Content)[edit]

  • Added Pearls of Auriga. A pure outgrowth of Auriga, they distil the living essence of the planet. Both powerful and beautiful, the Pearls appear only during the Dark Season and can be put to many wondrous purposes, such as impacting the effects of the Dark Season or building beautiful new districts.
  • Added Allayi Faction. To survive the horrors of the Dust Wars, the Allayi scattered themselves to the cold places of Auriga. Now that the Guardians have awakened they are coming together, hoping to save Auriga and rebuild the life they once had.
  • Added Altar of Auriga screen. The Altar of Auriga is a sacred building to those who live upon her. It is a centre of ancient power from the times even before the Endless.
  • Added Blessings of Auriga. By bringing Auriga's Pearls and unlocking the Altar's Blessings, powerful magical effects can be applied to a city, region, or empire.
  • Added a new season management and new Winter difficulties, available in the Advanced Settings of a new game (old system remains as a game choice)
  • Added more Winter effects. Coastal water and lakes can be frozen during Winter, making them passable

  • The cost of stockpiles no longer depends on the game speed
