  • Vikings' hit points increased from 125 to 135.

Fixed bugs


  • 16-bit LE - Missing doodads, missing terrain, and wayfinding in the northwest area of the map have been restored.
  • Backwater LE - Fixed a bug where waves from buildings in the water could be seen through the fog of war before the buildings themselves were in sight of the opposing player.
  • Dark Refuge LE - The terrain at the ramp of natural expansion has been adjusted so that wall-offs are possible.
  • Rotstich LE - The appearance of the crawler has been adjusted so that it is more visible on snow-covered terrain.
