MF: Welcome to Season 18!

New this week in Mars Frontier:

Welcome to Season 18!

Welcome to Season 18! Going into the new season, all Leaderboards and PvP Points are reset, meaning that it’s a fresh start for YOUR Alliance to be the new the dominating Alliance of the Season, and win the Seasonal Clan Tournament Grand Prize of 10,000 Gold for your Alliance at the end of the Season in 3 months from now. Does your Alliance have what it takes?

For a sneak peak at what’s coming up this season in Battlehouse games, check out the Developer Roadmap in the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Game Improvements

We’ve also made another high in community demand quality-of-life improvement to the settings menu interface!

The immersion based “screen shake” effect that occurs after a building is destroyed is now optional, so players who are sensitive to the screen movement or players that experience additional game lag from the effects can turn them off if they choose to do so.

Head on into the settings menu, scroll down to the new “Enable Screen Shake” preference, toggle it over to “No”, and then hit “Apply” if you want to turn the effects off at any point.

To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Mars Frontier Voice of the Commander Tracker.

Good hunting, Commanders!
