Free Awesomenauts DLC & Patch Coming Soon
I know we’ve posted about this in the recent past, but a new post over at the PS Blog confirms that the free content patch for Awesomenauts is almost here. The patch will address some balancing issues along with some connectivity issues. There will also be two new characters. According to Robin Meijer from Ronimo Games, “Coco Nebulon and Derpl Zork will join the original six Awesomenauts very, very soon.”
Coco Nebulon – our first female character. She’s a space-surfing chick who comes from the watery world of Okeanos. She is great at harassing enemies with her Ball Lightning, which moves through everything and can be detonated at the press of a button. Whenever the tables turn, she also has a great move to punish chasers: a trail of slowing, damaging lightning particles. Basically, she’s great against everything that moves (but weaker against enemies that stand their ground).
And that’s where Derpl Zork comes in. His primary special skill is to turn his Combat Walker into a static turret with a heavy cannon that deals massive damage. Of course, he’ll be stuck in place until he transforms back — so running away from him shouldn’t be a problem. That is, unless Derpl uses his other ability, which places ensnaring traps on the battlefield. Derpl usually sits around in a field of traps, ready to blast anyone foolish enough to run into him.
Finally, Derpl has one last ace up his sleeve against enemies that try to get within range: the Trap skill actually changes into a Nuke-launching ability while in Turret mode. A large, homing Nuke that deals massive AOE damage — what’s not to love?
Perhaps the best news is that this hefty package will be completely free. Here are a couple of images to hold you over until the patch comes out.
