G’day Forts fans!
We hope you are all staying safe and well in these unprecedented times. While we’re all busy social distancing, we’re happy to announce the release of new in-game content, the Pro HUD.
This interface can be purchased as DLC and provides the player with a whole new graphical skin and sound effects for the in-game HUD, including the main console, reactor readouts, commander gauge and replay panel.
Additionally, those who show their support with this purchase will also receive an in-game supporter’s medal. Head over to the store page now and receive a 20% discount for the first week.
Furthermore, we have made several important updates to the game, including a customisable profanity filter. Also, if you enjoy playing ranked but want to practice while waiting for a match, you can check the ‘alert to new lobbies’ button in the ranked match screen. You will get a notification when in single-player modes and can join instantly. See below for details.
