Yesterday, Ronimo Games patched up Awesomenauts. Two new Awesomenauts (Coco and Derpl) were added in this extensive update that has now gone live for all players – for free. If you’ve purchased the game on PS3 or Xbox 360 the game should automatically patch the next time you hop online. Apart from the two brand new Awesomenauts the update also contains lots of balance tweaks and some connectivity fixes that players longed for, as well as additional prestige levels. This is especially good to hear since balance issues were my main complaint in my review of the game 2 months ago.
The new FREE characters consist of Coco Nebulon and Derpl Zork. Coco Nebulon is the first female Awesomenaut and she specializes in psycho-electric melee abilities, lightning trails and detonatable lightning ball. Derpl Zork rides a transforming combat walker. You can see these new Awesomenauts in Action here:
Awesomenauts is currently available on Xbox 360 and Playstation Network for $10, but is also making its way to Steam shortly. You can learn more about the game from the game’s official homepage.
