Update 3.0 brings balance tweaks and flashy finishes
Mane6 has released the long-in-development Update 3.0 for its equestrian smackeroonie Them’s Fightin’ Herds — the update, now live on PC, brings with it a fresh balance of bug fixes, a balance overhaul, and, best of all, some lovely looking Level 3 cinematic Supers for the entire roster!
Each and every character can now activate a new Super when their super meter is stocked to its third stage. The new Supers take Them’s Fightin’ Herds to a whole new level, with gorgeous, cartoony, and very amusing attacks to put a big, dramatic finish on your beatdown. From Arizona’s lasso-crazy multi-slam, to Paprika’s ultra hug of death, Tianhuo’s demonstration of their martial arts expertise, and Pom’s Akuma-esque touch of death — these new supers are packed with personality and character.
In addition, all current and future TFH players can now download DLC character Shanty free of charge. Incidentally, the G.O.A.T. herself has perhaps my favorite super, featuring a barrage of cannonballs from her nearby ship, ending in a spectacular explosion. Them’s Fightin’ Herds has spent the past four years building upon its great foundation, determined to prove itself a major contender among its big-budget contemporaries. It’s a great fighter, no doubt, and the console release — officially called for later in 2022 — will be sure to add more than a few new disciples to the herd.
Them’s Fightin’ Herds is available now on PC. It will launch on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms this fall. You can check out the full list of balance tweaks and bug fixes over on Steam.
