Update # 1 is live!

Dear Players,

We are happy to present the first update for our EA launch. (We were not really counting that hotfix last weekend). In this update, we are starting to pump out campaign mode additions as fast as we can, as well as work on fixing some of the remaining launch issues. Our next big milestone is a planned update on Friday, that will add a lot more campaign features. We are expecting another 4 to 5 updates ahead of us before campaign mode is nice and packed with all the basic features.
