Critical May Developer Update

Fellow Terrans!

CRITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT: All save game data will be wiped with the latest update due to improvements that have been made to the method the game client uses to save your profile data. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience this will cause our Beta testers and Kickstarter backers.

With the recent announcement of a July 14 release date for Infinium Strike, we are also pleased to announce that we will be offering the game in 7 languages at launch: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese. All of us at Codex Worlds and our publishing partners at 1C Company are extremely excited to launch Infinium Strike worldwide less than 2 months from today!
