Backpack Battles Update Patch Notes 0.9.1 Mar 15

Breakout hit Backpack Battles is still in Early Access, and the developers have released another balance adjusting patch on March 15

Early Access auto battler, Backpack Battles, has taken Steam by storm with its inventory management gameplay mechanics. Complex systems like that often have to be fine tuned a fair bit before they can be considered properly balanced, and the latest patch for the game does exactly that–adjust the balance.

The full patch notes for Backpack Battles patch 0.9.1 on March 15 are below:

 

Hi everyone,

Backpack Battles was released exactly one week ago!
Thank you so much for playing :)

By the way, the game is still on sale for another week with a 10% discount!

We feel like enough time has passed to judge balance for the first time, and made some adjustments to bring the new classes more in line with the old ones. We will see how these changes affect the game and make more adjustments soon accordingly!
