ÆRENA: Clash of Champions Relaunches on Steam Early Access with New Progression System
February 20, 2014 – ÆRENA: Clash of Champions has relaunched on Steam Early Access, bringing new content, a new interface, and a progression system with rewards to the tactical game of multiplayer combat.

Available on Steam Early Access:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/247830/

With the launch of the new progression system, players can perform special tasks to earn badges that unlock new content, including access to new ships, increased AI difficulties, and Æther shell packs. There is even a badge for taking down last season’s top player (good luck with that).

All in-game cash is earned by playing matches and completing objectives. Inside the new Shop are ships with unique abilities, specialized packs of Æther shells, and champions to add to your roster – starting with a huge discount on fan-favorite, Martel.

New Features:
• Player progression with XP and level-ups.
• Player profiles and achievements to unlock content.
• Opening of the Shop with Champions, Ships, and Æther Shells.
• New UI and in-game chat.
• Two new Ships with unique abilities.
• Multiple, upgraded AI difficulties.

About ÆRENA: Clash of Champions
In an alternate history of mad-science gone awry, two teams of champions enter the arena to battle for control of the world’s most powerful energy source; Æther. Rather than twitch-based combat or flavor-of-the-month heroes, ÆRENA is a turn-based game that encourages players to create their own styles of play by creating unique teams of champions, supporting ships, and Æther shell abilities.
