Besiege is a physics based building game in which you create war machines and lay waste to peaceful hamlets and lonely outposts. You must build a machine which can fulfil multiple objectives, from razing windmills to wiping out battalions of brave soldiers and transporting valuable Ore Stones. Create a trundling behemoth, or take to the skies, and let loose in fully destructible environments. Ultimately, you must conquer all Kingdoms by crippling their castles and killing their men and livestock.

Hello Everyone!

Today we’ve got another Besiege update for you, Version 0.42. V0.42 brings with it 3 new blocks, updates to existing blocks and several bug fixes.

The new blocks added by this update are the Crossbow Block, Log Block & Vacuum Block. The Crossbow Block allows you to fire large arrows at enemy targets and has 30 rounds of ammunition before it is depleted.
The Log Block is… well, it’s a log. The block is three times the length of a single wooden block for use on larger scale machines.
The Vacuum Block creates a suction force that pulls; enemies, objects, debris, etc towards it. This block was designed with both environmentally conscious players in mind (To help them clean up their devastation) and also for those players enjoy obscene levels of chaotic violence.

We’ve also been gradually working our way through some of the game’s original, more dated looking blocks, updating them with improved textures and models.
As previously mentioned in our development post, we have compiled and uploaded a skin pack to the workshop which contains all of the original textures and models for the blocks, for those who wish to continue using them. They can be found here: Steamcommunity.com
Development on other areas of the game is continuing to progress well and we’ll hopefully be announcing some new pretty major features soon! But for now we really hope that you enjoy these new blocks and look forward to seeing what you use them for!

Cheers,

Von

PS: The machine used for the Gif was created by Phantom and can be found here: Steamcommunity.com
