This one has the usual bug and balance fixes, as well as three new monster types: two regular monsters, and one miniboss.
All three of these new monsters are primarily for the ocean shallows, replacing the underwater-only types of monsters that were previously used there (and which are now deeper-ocean-only). Although the oceans are also getting these new monsters seeded into them, too.
In general we're working on revamping the ocean shallows to have a better feel and to be focused on monsters that are equally at home in and out of water, based on a lot of player feedback we had on ocean shallows in the last few weeks.
This release also has a number of balance changes for some missions, including the meteor shower missions that were introduced last release. And there are a couple of new graphics settings options for helping to narrow down performance problems that one might have.
More to come soon. Enjoy!
