Update 51 is focused on iterating on Inferno features, with new quality of life changes, optimizations, and content to support existing features like trains and fire. For further details on this update, please check out our latest Devstream.
FIRE ENGINES In the last update, fire weapons were introduced which allows structures and entire towns to be set towns ablaze. Fire Engines have now been added to help players fight fire.
Each faction has their own unique Fire Engine variant, with the Colonials getting the R-12b - “Salva” Flame Truck
and the Wardens getting the Dunne Dousing Engine 3r
CABOOSE One of the biggest pieces of feedback we got for Update 50 was how difficult it was to maintain railroad networks. To help alleviate this, the Caboose
car is being introduced, which will automatically repair tracks when driving over them, removing the need for Maintenance Tunnels
The Caboose can be attached to any train and consumes either Construction Materials
or Garrisoned Supplies
to repair decayed tracks.
FACILITY UPGRADES Facilities have been expanded with new upgrades and structures to help players overcome challenges and to add additional utility to them. They are summarized in the image below.
FIRE UPDATE A comprehensive pass was done on fire mechanics to address various player feedback. The summary is that infantry flamethrowers have been buffed, fire rockets have been tempered, and the experience of putting out fires has been improved.
There are a lot more under the hood changes to fire that's worth noting. For full details, please watch this timestamped portion of the Devstream
