Released earlier today, Armored Warfare 0.32 keeps the game in the Spirithaven season but brings the long-awaited Enigma's Legacy Battle Bath into the picture, as well as various under-the-hood changes and fixes. A few new vehicles have been included as well, but they will only be available for those who choose to play the new Battle Path missions, which cannot be accessed for free.
The four Asian vehicles that will come with the aforementioned Battle Path — scheduled to kick off on June 2 — are the following: Type 74 (tier 5), Seongun-915 (tier 6), SBS Pindad (tier 8), and the top-tier Type 10 Hitomaru. In addition to them, the tier 9 Hunter AFV will come as a part of the Enigma Loot Crate.
Leaving the premium goodies mentioned above aside, Armored Warfare 0.32 comes with the following changes that will affect everyone: overhauled spotting system and explosion sounds, harsher penalties for deserters, Mechanized Infantry improvements and a new deployment animation, performance tweaks, various user interface optimizations, as well as many minor bug fixes.
In my opinion, this title can still get back on track, but not with US$400 packages in a market place full of uber-expensive cosmetic items that bring no real depth to the in-game user experience. It would be a pity to see it go away because there are some unique PvE ideas here that must not die. What would you change in Armored Warfare?
