After S2Games gave a group of volunteers permission to maintain and update “Savage 2 – A Tortured Soul” on their own – that team now released their second and third hotfix.
Here is what you can find in versions 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168:
- Two new maps (MirChul by Dark_Strider and Akamrostu by Envor)
- Long overdue bugfixes (Sentry bats of the beast horde can now reveal electric eyes)
- New Tutorial System to ease the learning curve for beginners
- Eyecandy (spawn effects for hellbourne units, persitant items now summon a colored groundsprite effect for as long as their effects last)
- and NUMEROUS bugfixes.
You can find the complete changelog here.
As a second important step Savage 2 is now also being hosted at Desura.
Desura is a community driven digital distribution service for gamers – like you might know from Steam – but Desura already supports linuX and there are rumors that MAC might be included soon.
All this results in a slowly but steady increasing playerbase which will hopefully will help Savage 2 to get recognized by the masses.
