Australia Fire Relief
You asked us to create a way to help you donate to the people and wildlife affected by the Australian bushfires through our games. We love your initiative and so we’ve done just that! You’ll find a special Australia Fire Relief Bundle in each of our games: Rival Kingdoms: Endless Night, Samurai Siege, Transformers: Earth Wars, and Fastlane: Road to Revenge.

All of Space Ape’s share of the proceeds from the bundles will go towards Australia’s Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund, which supports affected communities with evacuation and recovery, and WIRES Wildlife Rescue, Australia's largest wildlife rescue organization. To donate directly you can do so here:

WIRES Wildlife Rescue Emergency Fund - https://bit.ly/2FOGjXl

We consider ourselves fortunate to have a player community that cares and we love that our games can be a place where we rally around a worthy cause together. We’re increasingly looking to do our part and will no doubt support more causes in the future, as our learning and knowledge in this area grows.

The health of our planet and the effects of climate change have been particularly close to our heart. To find out more about the initiatives we’ve embarked upon, please check out: https://spaceapegames.com/green

New Bots: Strafe and Thrust
The next two bots to join Transformers: Earth Wars are Technobot Strafe and Conehead Thrust.
Strafe is a liability on the battlefield, prone to react to any bit of motion or potential danger with a hail of firepower. His incredible reflexes are both boon and bane, as his hair-trigger responses and often inaccurate targeting can do harm to friend and foe in equal measure.

He's a nervous wreck and suffers from what he calls PDSD (post-Decepticon shaking disorder), but sometimes his sheer lack of restraint can turn the tide of an otherwise unwinnable battle.

As a Technobot, Strafe possesses above average intelligence and combines to form Computron.
Following your feedback last week, our team of artists has been hard at work to redo Thrust's 3D model and texturing. Here is the result:
Thrust treats fellow Decepticons who try to be sneaky or subtle with naked derision, preferring to make every effort to announce his presence on the battlefield both loudly and proudly.

He feels a dramatic arrival is half the battle, a kind of psychological warfare, and often pronounces victory long before the first shots are even fired. It's a carefully cultivated image, and masks Thrust's deeper insecurities.
New Power Cores: Glass Gas Mine and Flare Mine
You may have spotted the new Mine Category in the Power Core Lab. The cores will finally go live on Thursday.

Once they are released they will be available through bot duplicates from Bot Crystals and Power Core Chips (including all the ones you may have stored at the Space Bridge!).

Glass Gas Mine
Explodes when enemies are nearby and applies Glass Gas for a duration. Affected targets receive 10% / 20% / 30% / 40% (Bronze/Silver/Gold/G-Metal) more damage. Does not affect Aerials and Gunners.

By upgrading the core, you will increase the effect duration.

Flare Mine
Affects only one enemy making it the focus of nearby defences and reducing its speed by 30% / 40% / 50% / 60% (Bronze/Silver/Gold/G-Metal) for a duration. Can detect bots in stealth mode.

By upgrading the core, you will increase the effect duration.

War Strategy Series
Check out this new video series by Sunstreaker wozza teaching you techniques on how to beat popular base designs!

Twitch
There will be no stream this Thursday.

We’ll be back LIVE Thursday, January 23rd @ 5pm UTC!
