Awesomenauts Patch and Female Character DLC Dated and Detailed
Written Thursday, July 12, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Awesomenauts is set to get a whole bunch of downloadable support in a couple of weeks' time, with developer Ronimo Games planning to address the game's characters that by the dev's own admission "are extremely unbalanced". Consequently, Ronimo has been monitoring the 1.5 million matches played so far and decided that the only way to redress this lack of balance is to release a female Awesomenaut.
Coco Nebulon will be joining the cast of Awesomenauts later this month, with a psycho-electric melee attack, while she'll also be joined by a second new character who'll be in the same patch. Named Derpl Zork, he's an alien that has an IQ below that of plankton and as such enjoys hunting cats using his combat walker.
The patch will be free and as well as adding Coco and Derpl to the roster, it brings a range of general fixes and balance tweaks. You can view the complete patch notes here. Awesomenauts' free patch will be coming to XBLA on July 27th. You can still purchase the game from XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points.
