Update 1.5 for Battle Brothers is here, and it brings the Of Flesh and Faith DLC, along with some balancing changes, general improvements, and bug fixes. Of Flesh and Faith features two new origins: the Oathtakers and the Anatomists.

Battle Brothers is a 2D turn-based tactical RPG set in a medieval fantasy, procedurally-generated open world. You take control of a mercenary company where you’ll engage in complex turn-based battles. There’s a Permadeath feature as well where characters that are killed stay dead even after battle.

Aside from the new DLC, there are tons of other changes in Update 1.5. Some skills like Cascade and Aimed Shot have their costs reduced to 13 and 20 fatigue, respectively. Aimed Shot also has its action points cost reduced from eight to seven.

Weapon prices have been adjusted as well. Basically, top-tier one-handed weapons are now cheaper than before. High-end two-handed weapons, however, got a bit more expensive.

In addition, some issues with certain contracts have been resolved. For instance, the issue with the “Break Siege” contract where allied troops might chase some unrelated enemies is fixed.
