Steel Diver: Sub Wars has been updated to version 4.0 today. The free to play game for the Nintendo 3DS has had a number of changes according to director Takaya Imamura after he shared the message with fans on Miiverse.
The biggest change, perhaps, comes with the removal of play coins for online battles in the free version. In previous updates to the game, players would have to store up a number of play coins in order to battle others in multiplayer mode – initially two which was then reduced to just one play coin. However, if you bought the full version of the game, play coins wouldn’t be needed. Now, Version 4.0 removes play coins all together, much to the delight of those who continue to play the free version.
An option to remodel any sub from the Submarine Selection screen has also been added. For £0.89, director Imamura says you can remodel subs to expand their crew-carrying capacity, which now equates to a six crew members for any selected sub. For a full rundown of what you can expect in the update, check out the list below. And to download the update, head on over to the Nintendo 3DS eShop or simply launch the software to start the update automatically.
Tweaks for Version 4.0:
- Submarine diving and surfacing angles
The angle of a sub when it dives or surfaces will not be as steep, which makes it easier to evade frontal attacks.
- Durability balance
In order to improve game balance, we’ve adjusted the defensive strength of submarines with a durability stat of six or more.
- Crew appearance in single-player missions
In single-player missions, crew that you’ve already rescued will not appear, making it easier for you to recruit new crew members.
- Matched Skills
Battles Players between level 30 and level 49 can now match up in Matched Skills Battles.
- Starting positions in Internet Battle The starting positions in Hot Springs were returned to the Version 1.0 settings.
- Play Coin requirement
We have removed the Play Coin requirement for Internet Battle in the Free Version.
- Bug fixes
We fixed a bug that inflicts damage on you when you sink an enemy.
Needs a wii u release
Seriously it got boring in the first 5 matches.
More and more, they make me regret buying the premium version. Not much point now as far as I can tell.
Am I the only Nintendo fan out here who thinks this game is fucking boring? It sucked as a 3DS weak ass launch title and it sucks now.
