  • New Push Game Mode: Today you can finally play the latest core game mode “Push”. In Push, teams compete on a symmetrical map to take control of a robot in the center of the map. A team can bring the robot to enemy lines by staying within its perimeter and making sure the enemy team doesn’t fight by getting too close. Barricades will be scattered around the map, which will slow down the robot as it continues to push towards the enemy.
  • Six new cards: Enjoy breathtaking sights as the battle moves to new locations in Queen Street, Circuit Royal, Midtown, Colosseo, Esperança and Paraíso. Play all your favorite base game modes in these new and exciting locations. In addition, many existing maps received new day and night variants that allow you to see your favorite areas in a new light.
