Today we’re announcing that a big update for Awesomenauts is hitting Steam next Wednesday, September 2nd. This update will contain a bunch of cool stuff, including a free new playable character called Ksenia! This hairdresser-assassin from space is in fact the 23rd playable character in Awesomenauts, which means that the roster has grown by almost 300% since we originally launched in May 2012. Long-term support over these three years in the form of meaningful free and purely optional premium content has definitely helped to keep the community alive and growing throughout that time!
To celebrate the impending launch of this update, we’re giving away a free Steam key for the full game to all those who attend PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend and pick up their showbag! If you’re there, make sure to drop by our booth at the Indie MEGABOOTH to take Ksenia out for a spin!
We’re a small studio, but we’re dreaming big for Awesomenauts. So even though we’ve been regularly launching new content over the past three years we’ve got a lot more cool stuff lined up all the way through 2016 and beyond. Not bad, right?
The full press release for this update is included below, as well as an image that summarizes what’s included in the patch (which we’ve dubbed Awesomenauts 2.12: The Cutting Edge). The final bits of content will be revealed in the days leading up to release.
