We've released several minor patches over the past few months culminating in our second major patch live now. Thanks to our players for being patient as we continue to develop and update Exo TD. We're passionate that we can achieve a better experience and will continue to work hard to deliver on expectations.

A look at the new UI with integrated tooltips in the new build menu and removed icons from the health area. You can now select active turrets to view the stats.
