Meridian: New World enters Early Access Phase 4 today

Dueren, Friday 8 th August 2014  –  Today Meridian: New World entered the fourth and final Early Access phase before its final release. Just like in the other phases, there will be numerous updates and some new content to explore.

The central new features are the ‘Vanguard’, a slow but extremely powerful unit and the ‘Charger Cannon’, a weapon which has yet to reveal its special abilities. It’s a very different weapon and gives players fresh overall strategy choices. Also, the commander level cap has been raised 10 steps to level 35, so look forward to new commander abilities, too. Last but not least there will be ten new achievements for you as well as a new difficult skirmish map called ‘Conflict’.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank all participants of the Early Access campaign for their personal contributions. Without your feedback and discussions Meridian: New World would not be the game that it is at this point.
