The summer continues strong for Awesomenauts with the release of a new character in Awesomenauts 4.3: Ready to Rock it! Commander Rocket, the latest addition to the cast, is a squishy, small-sized veteran that comes equipped with a massive rocket launcher that allows him to relentlessly harass his opponents.

With this update we mark the addition of the 32nd Awesomenaut to the playable roster - a huge step up from the original roster of eight that we originally launched with on Steam on August 1st, 2012. Over the past five years, we’ve continued to update the game regularly and developed Awesomenauts from a small indie MOBA to a respectable free-to-play title that has been played by millions around the world. It’s been an incredible adventure, so we’re celebrating this anniversary with cool events throughout the month. The full roster of events that are scheduled for the remainder of the month is as follows:

August 17th, 2017 - August 20th, 2017

  • Quadruple XP bonus for first win of the day
  • Log in to during this time to receive the Digital G skin for free!
August 21st, 2017 - August 27th, 2017
  • ALL Nauts are accessible for free for players above account level 6!
August 23rd, 2017 - August 26th, 2017
  • Visit us at booth A41 in Hall 10.1 at Gamescom to meet us in person, play some games, win cool prizes, and get a free Roboscoop skin!
August 24th 2017 - August 27th, 2017

We’re giving away lots of free skins this month, and all players have to do to earn this is log in to the Steam version! On top of that, all players are able to try the diverse Awesomenauts cast as we make all ‘Nauts available for free for a full week from August 21st until August 27th. This aligns with Gamescom, where we’ll be hosting casual tournaments for attendees and meeting fans at Booth A41 in Hall 10.1.
