With Halloween just around the corner, there's no better time for releasing the 9th patch (v.126.96.36.199) for Mordheim: City of the Damned! The Undead Warband have completely overtaken this patch and are looking for brains!
The new Undead Warband DLC offers 7 new unique Warriors, 8 new original campaign missions, as well as new skills and spells. The patch also comes with various optimizations and updates.
- New Undead warband DLC available for purchase! Undeads will appear as enemies if not bought.
- Veterans can now start a Rank 5 warband: When starting a new warband, you will be prompted with a window that will offer the option between Rank 0 and Rank 5. Starting Rank 5 provides you with all the benefits unlocked at this Rank, such as being able to hire all types of Warriors for the warband or having more reserve slots unlocked. This doesn’t provide additional benefits such as extra gold or equipment. Note: This feature becomes available to new Warbands after reaching Veteran Rank 5 with a Warband.
- Accelerated Turns: A new option can be activated in the Gameplay section of the Options menu. It has 2 purposes:
- Accelerate Player Turns by 15% (movement, animations, etc.)
- Accelerate AI movement and athletic actions taken by 50% during AI turns
- This is only valid while playing against the CPU (never against another Player)
- Veteran Skill “Re-spec”: Everyone will get a free “re-spec” for Veteran skills. This will remove every Veteran Skill learned and allow you to learn new ones.
- Each warband starts with 1 Re-spec.
- At the end of every year and before the next year start, on Witching Day, the warband will get a new Re-spec (i.e.: one additional Re-spec per game year.)
- Re-spec allocation is retroactive to all warbands.
- Detection of Mission progress corruption: If a save is corrupted, it will reset the mission progress and send the warband back to hideout without consequences. This process takes place in the main menu.
- New option to turn tutorials off in the hideout. It is located in the "Gameplay" section of the Options menu.
- New layout when selecting "New warband" in the main menu.
- Hired Sword rotation: Adjusted to have a better balance between Leader, Hero, Henchman and Impressive Warriors. This ensures that, most of the time, there is at least one of each type available after a rotation. Will start to take effect on your next Hired Sword rotation.
- New Campaign Gold: Initial money has been increased to 500 gold (was 250 previously). This doesn’t take into account Veteran bonus.
- Witch Hunter Story mission 3: Reinforcements have been reduced for this mission.
