Developer Ronimo announces that the first new characters for their side-scrolling console-based League of Legends-a-like, Awesomenauts, will be free. A patch scheduled to go live on July 23rd will include two new characters: Coco, a melee fighter who rides a hoverboard, will be Awesomenauts’ only chick, and Zork — hey, isn’t that trademarked? — is some mech dude who shoots cats out of a gun. Did you get that? He shoots cats out of a gun. Don’t believe me? Check it out:
The patch will also include a mess of the balance changes you see in any real time strategy game after its first round of contact with the player base. Read more specifics here.
