Feel the Burn: Summer Update Launches on July 9!

Prepare for fun in the sun in the Summer Update, launching July 9 in War Robots: Frontiers! Grab a Pioneer Pack to enter the fray in Early Access on PC via Steam and MY.GAMES Launcher, now available from warrobotsfrontiers.com and Steam.

  • From July 9, all Garages (Hangars) will be reset, and due to balancing changes, some Builds may no longer be viable for battle. Your saved preset Builds will be transferred to the new Robodex. Save your Builds to presets now before the update so you can rebuild your Garage faster on July 9! 
  • All Legendary Pilots will be removed from the game on July 9, and you’ll be compensated accordingly with Intel (dependent on Pilot level). Until Legendary Pilots return, the “Claim Kate” feature will be disabled from the Founder’s Pack and Intel given as compensation. 

RIP IT UP WITH REDESIGNED ROBOTS

Pilot two redesigned Robots in the Summer Update, each with their own unique Ability.

  • Ares: There’s a new god of war in town! Activate a shield and receive an extra weapon with Ares’ Retribution Ability. 
  • Phantom: Become the ghost in the machine and activate Phantom’s Flashback Ability to place a local Warp Point.

STAY FROSTY WITH NEW WEAPONS & ABILITIES

New Weapons

  • Trident: Deal high-explosive damage with this heavy midrange cannon that also assaults nearby areas. 
  • Fowler: Get to grips with this new heavy shotgun, ideal for those with a little extra patience. Line up your shot for an accurate blast!

New Ability

  • Siphon Link: Bind yourself and the enemy with a beam which does more damage the closer the Robot is to the target.

NEW FEATURES FOR THE WILD TEN

  • Robodex: The Robodex is a new library of all the standard factory Robot Builds available in-game where you can easily manage all your preset Builds and move them directly to your Garage.

  • Workshop: The Workshop is a new tab in the Garage with an additional Constructor section accessible from the main menu. Pilots can create and plan Builds without requiring a Garage slot. Once a Robot is completed in the Workshop, it can be saved to the Robodex for later use. 
  • Classes: All parts now belong to specific Classes to help Pilots better identify the strengths and weaknesses of their abilities, weapons, and Builds, and create Robots that match their preferred playstyles.

NEW IN-GAME TERMINOLOGY

In-game texts have undergone a big rewrite. You'll see lots of new terminology, including new terms for existing features. For example, the Hangar is now the Garage. Get to grips with it and let us know what you think!
