General information: A huge, long awaited release after 3.5 years of work and inactivity.

☑ Support for new version of Stratagus engine, which includes a lot of new features and bug fixes(OpenGL, running on modern Windows systems and more).
☑ Network and replays work again.
☑ A lot of new units, whereas several old units were removed, mostly with sprites from other games. At least, UAC now have a new vehicle park.
☑ All building sprites were redesigned.
☑ New mode – Doom Wars DeathMatch, which moves original Doom deathmatch in Doom Wars realm.
☑ 2 new tilesets – Earth and Hell, whereas all other tilesets were modified, especially interior tilesets.
☑ Now game supports a pack of resolution modes, up to 1920×1080
☑ Functional map editor
☑ Brand new gameplay – races are a bit different now, each unit has its own advantages and disadvantages. Hell units are able to use marines to create zombies, whereas UAC is able to research anomalies of Hellish technology. A lot of new upgrades, whereas the old ones were redesigned.
☑ Veterancy system – units gain experience and ranks, becoming stronger and tougher and gaining new special abilities.
☑ More efficient AI: 5 difficulty levels, named like skills from Doom; each unit try to target enemy which is easy in defeating. AI now use almost all game capabilities, including superweapons.

☑ New resource system – minerals and energy. Minerals are collected from regenerable patches and energy is collected from generators.
☑ Armor system – UAC armor protects marine from harm by reducing damage but it could be destroyed.
