Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Defend Earth: Xenos Survivors » Update 1.2.3 | Lightning Gauntlet!

Hello Agents!

In our latest update, we are thrilled to unveil the addition of a set of brand new Augmentations for the Lightning Gauntlet. This powerful weapon enhancement brings electrifying capabilities to your arsenal, allowing you to harness the raw energy of lightning and strike down enemies.

The Augmentations are:

Voltage, the lightning will jump from the initial target to additional enemies, allowing you to chain your attacks and damage multiple foes at once.

Jolt will stun enemies temporarily, giving you a strategic advantage by immobilizing them and creating openings for follow-up attacks.

We are excited to see what builds you will come up with with these new augmentations.

As always: Have fun saving the world!
