Key Features:

  • Play Social – The Co-Op main menu button has been updated to make room for more social features, including the Content Browser and visibility to weekly Co-Op challenges when those are running. We’re keen to keep adding more fun ways to play together and share creations, so watch for more here in future updates!
  • Odyssey Creator & Browser! You’ve been able to make your own Challenges – now put them together in player-created Odysseys! Use all of the features you’d expect from Challenge creation but put them together with a theme, Odyssey difficulty (including Extreme!), and Crew restrictions and make the best Odysseys you can dream up for friends and community.
  • Monkey Teams: Stick to the chosen team to earn extra rewards! To mix things up with an alternative to the Golden Bloon, Monkey teams will be assigned to a random map in each category similar to the Golden Bloon, however for this event players have the option of beating the map using only their hero along with 3 randomly selected towers. If the game is completed without breaking this team rule then a small monkey money bonus will be awarded. Monkey Teams and Golden Bloon will alternate for variety, and both can be running while Collection Events are on.

Big Changes / Additions:

  • Freeplay rounds from 121 to 140 have now been added in the default round set, so like the recent 101-120 additions, these will now be consistent rounds. Interesting, I wonder if Ninja Kiwi is up to something…
  • Minor tweaks have been made to the previously added 101 – 120 fixed freeplay rounds.
  • Player regions in Co-op are now labelled with their name

Bug Fixes & General Changes:

  • Performance optimizations made to tower targeting
  • Localization corrections made – native and fluent speakers please keep flagging non-English translations that are bugging you!
  • Resolved an issue where towers would sometimes not have a complete range circle
  • Default & Reset towers in Challenge Creation will now default to select hero
  • Resolved an issue where the Hide Completed filter in the Challenge viewer would only be able to hide a maximum of 1024 challenges (so awesome that some of you were having this problem!)
  • Hitting the send round button in races will no longer trigger a flag animation if all rounds have already been sent (if you liked just waving the flag, let us know if you want that or some other trophy store animations to play during races, especially if you’re making videos)
  • Resolved some minor UI loading issues when changing menus
  • Resolved a visual issue with Ravine’s Sword Easter Egg after restarting
  • Resolved an issue with Lotus Island flowers not recharging correctly after use
  • Quitting and loading a save on round 100 should now award Instamonkeys upon completion of the round
