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 1.4 | Vitality Augmentations

Greetings agents,

we have a new update for you! As always, we appreciate your feedback and support as we work diligently to improve your experience.


We’ve introduced Augmentations for the Vitality module: Protection and Tenacity.


Generates a shield equal to 25% of the maximum health which regenerates after taking no damage for 10 seconds.


After taking a fatal hit, the agent is invulnerable for 5 seconds. Tenacity has a cooldown of 5 minutes.


Since the release of Area 51 and Vol’nar, we’ve made a series of important modifications. Notably, in regards to some aspects, like values for Vol’nar and projectile size of certain other enemies have been adjusted. We have also revised the damage metrics from final bosses for a better game balance.

Moreover, we have made some subtle changes to the user interface and color coordination, ensuring that your gameplay is as user-friendly as ever.


As always we’ve been hard at work on squashing bugs. Issues related to the range value for specific elements have been resolved. Achievements for certain augmentations are now functioning as they should, and a glitch that was preventing the unlocking of new locations after progression has been corrected.

Also, we have fixed a number of localization typos and inconsistencies.

These updates mark our commitment to continuously refine and improve your experience. As always, thank you for your feedback, and we encourage you to continue sharing your thoughts and suggestions on our forums and Discord.

Stay tuned for more updates. Happy hunting!

Defend Earth Team!
