A new playable character, Spectator Mode, reworked visuals… it’s all here in Awesomenauts update 3.4: Prime Time! Max Focus, a flying reporter-gone-mercenary who presents the evening news on Channel 7 Galactic News, has been added to the line-up of characters included in the Awesomenauts: Overdrive expansion. That makes him
To celebrate Max Focus joining the Awesomenauts, the Overdrive expansion is currently 35% off on Steam. (http://store.steampowered.com/app/425540/)
In addition to this new character, the Prime Time update also adds a fully featured Spectator Mode to Awesomenauts. Players can now watch live gameplay from their friends or watch any of the featured matches during the day. Replays for all games will be saved online, allowing any player to watch gameplay from top players and their friends even after these match have been completed.
This new Spectator Mode allows players to enjoy more great Awesomenauts content, even while waiting in the matchmaking queue, and highlights matches from the highest-rated players in the Awesomenauts community.
Update 3.4: Prime Time also brings a visual rework of Clunk, one of our longest-serving Awesomenauts. This character has been redrawn from scratch, with new animations, new effects, and an updated theme song! Even all the skins for this character have been completely reworked.
We’re already hard at work on Awesomenauts content for early 2017 and have been making good progress on the Level Editor and Steam workshop integration that will be coming to Awesomenauts in the new year. 2017 is going to be the best year yet for Awesomenauts, and we’ve got plenty of unannounced content to look forward to!
