Awesomenauts Assemble! PS4 Patch 1.5 is Live, Brings New Characters, Free Stuff, and Plenty of Fixes

Goodness, it’s been a long wait, hasn’t it? It seems like forever since Ronimo Games updated the PS4 version of its brilliantly infuriating MOBA. The PC version has been heading the way with new updates and fresh content from the Dutch studio, but with the new release of the Xbox One edition of Awesomenauts Assemble!, Ronimo Games has released a new update for the PS4 edition, too.

So, what’s in version 1.5? It’d be easier to ask what isn’t. There’s a ton of new stuff. There are new characters – some of which are free – and even a new map to battle it out on. There’s also some new DLC as well as a ton of general fixes.

Ronimo has been kind enough to provide some details on Awesomenauts Assemble! version 1.5, and you can find all the relevant details down below.

PS4 patch 1.5 Patch Notes

NEW FREE character: Rocco
When a job’s too dirty for The Intergalactic Police Department to take on, they call Rocco. This old Bird’s the most relentless, gruff and tough-as-talons hitman vigilante this side of the Milkyway. Rocco is feared by the most dangerous solar cartel gang bosses, Shisu mobsters and other crazed alien psychopaths for his “ravenous methods”. Not shunning any kind of weapon, Rocco prefers his ACOG Blackout G-Mag Laserbow, which has got him out of a tight spot more than once. Rocco’s aggressive behaviour did result in a lot of powerful enemies however, including a corrupt Galaxial congressman who made him a wanted man, and forced him to quit the force. Instead of a retirement at the Kentucky Friends and Poultry Retreat he joined the Awesomenauts to plot his next move on his path to rid the universe of all space-scum.
This is a FREE new character added to the base game.

NEW FREE character: Ksenia
Ksenia was once the best hairdresser in the galaxy. Year after year she won the renowned Venus hair style tournament with her outrageous hairstyle creations. She enjoyed the great fame that came with the status as master hair dresser, unfortunately her father Vladimir Pewchenko a rich weapons manufacturer on planet Russia (formerly known as the moon) had other plans for her. With a virtual reality hood dryer showing her a hair cutting simulator, he made her into one of the best assassins in the galaxy. While thinking she was cutting hair, in reality she was cutting down Pewchencko’s enemies. With no competition left her father assigned her to the Awesomenauts, where she still wears the VR hood. Many suspect that Ksenia is actually just watching soap opera’s on her hood and perfectly knows what she is doing.
This is a FREE new character added to the base game.

NEW character: Professor M. Yoolip
As a scientist professor Milton Yoolip loves to create wondrous inventions and contraptions. One day after combining the time machine into some comfy slippers, he teleported to the Mesozoic era and got stuck with the dinosaurs after losing one of his teleportation slippers. He spent years to craft a new slipper to travel forward in time to return to his beloved granddaughter Ayla.
Yoolip is part of the Overdrive expansion and is sold as a separate DLC.

NEW character: Chucho Krokk
Chucho comes from a rich, if slightly shady family called the Krokk. He has taken up the family mantle of being a BAD-ASS BOUNTY HUNTER. This self-styled “Time Krokk” is on the hunt for an Awesomenaut who has been illegally travelling through time.
Chucho is part of the Overdrive expansion and is sold as a separate DLC.

NEW character: Jimmy And The LUX5000
Jimmy, Amy and the LUX5000 Toddletron are a mighty team. They have won numerous fights in robobrawls held in the many arenas and slums of Circuit City on Calias. Being big fans of the Awesomenauts they skipped the seasonal diaper league tournament and joined the team for some grown-up fights.
Jimmy is part of the Overdrive expansion and is sold as a separate DLC.

NEW: Lonestar’s new graphics
Sheriff Lonestar got a brand new attire! His visuals and animations were completely redone resulting in cooler, crisper and much more awesome art! Sonic Picnic has even extended his theme song and killing spree music. The theme song is over twice as long now!

NEW: Starstorm map
The massive Starstorm station is ready for battle! On this map there’s two big new factors to keep in mind: warpholes and bottomless space! Leaping into one of these wormholes will conveniently teleport you to the top of the map. Bottomless space is less convenient however as it tends to kill all Awesomenauts who fall into it…
This is a FREE expansion, playable for everyone who owns Awesomenauts!

NEW song: One Happy Galaxy
Together with the Starstorm map comes a new song in the regular gameplay soundtrack on all maps: One Happy Galaxy! Bounce along those awesome beats by Sonic Picnic!

NEW FREE skin: Augmented Ayla
There was a time when the Killer Koalas were as legendary as the Awesomenauts are today, and one of their members actually came from the future! Ayla used one of Yoolip’s inventions to travel back in time, and she became the youngest member of the Killer Koalas. They gave her a pretty neat eye-patch to help her focus her psychic abilities. She became known as one of their most feared members and was nicknamed ‘The Eraser’.
Augmented Ayla is a FREE skin added to the base game.

NEW ultimate skin: Electronic Supersonic Cybertronic Rocco
There are countless dimensions that are quite similar to ours, yet with subtle differences. In one of these dimensions, wars are not fought with weapons, but with music. One of the DJs enlisted in the ranks of the great music syndicate known as the Awesomenauts is called Rocco. Cybertronic Supersonic Electronic Rocco is now one of the most prominent DJs in the galaxy, and uses his music to bring peace to worlds ruled by dissonance.
This is a paid DLC and comes with custom voice lines, custom music and special in-game music effects.

NEW ultimate skin: 8-Bit Yoolip
Professor Yoolip’s most dangerous invention is probably the 8-Bit Game Cartridge-to-Reality generator, which is capable of reading any game cartridge from that ‘80s and turn the world contained within to reality. When he first tried this invention, it unleashed an 8-Bit version of himself… just sitting there, waiting for someone to take control of his destiny. Now he and his Robo Dinos are ready for some old school action!
This is a paid DLC and comes with a fully customized voice set, a new jingle and killing spree, and fully customised sound effects and graphics!

NEW premium skin: Sentry Specimen X-58
When Sentry infiltrated the commercial space ship Nostrilmo he found a gross pulsating egg. He quickly imprinted his consciousness on the embryonic alien within. Years later, the Nostrilmo crashed into the Starstorm station and unleashed a never-before-seen horror upon the Awesomenauts!
This is a paid DLC and comes with a fully customized voice set!

NEW premium skin: Skull Chopper Chucho
After slaying the last demon in Europe in a dark forest late in the fifteenth century, the legendary demon hunter got atop his steel horse and set off to another world in need of his services. One of the villagers saved by the man said he had a face pale as bone and introduced himself Skull Chopper Chucho, and that he would return if our world was ever threatened by hellspawn once more.
This is a paid DLC and comes with a fully customized voice set!

NEW premium skin: Wicked Coco
Witches were hunted down throughout the middle ages, but one of them managed to escape to a place where the inquisition was unable to follow her: a planet near the outer brim of the universe, called Okeanos. On this world she was finally free to practice her magic. Over time, the Witch traded her trusty broom for a more modern combat waveboard and updated her wardrobe, but every once in a while she still dons her old outfit.
This is a paid DLC and comes with a fully customized voice set!

NEW skin: Dragon Huntress Ksenia
Only one dragon remained in this world, but it would fall to her blades all the same. She leapt forward and killed her opponent with a single blow. Pieces of armor, weapons, and gold dropped all around her, but she cursed as the ring she had hoped to find was nowhere in sight. “Dammit, now I’ll have to grind this part for the seventh time.” Ksenia was already browsing through the menu to restart this particular chapter of her favorite game: ‘Warrior Princess: Dragon Huntress’. Ksenia played the game whenever she had a few minutes in between the clients that visited her barber shop – she was a Dragon Huntress at heart!
This is a paid DLC.

NEW skin: Cosmic Captain Ksenia
At the Hairdresser Academy Ksenia was chosen by a cosmic force along with four fellow students. They were tasked with fighting evil monsters that threatened the galaxy. Sadly, the ‘cosmic force’ turned out to be some hacker kid that had been rejected from the academy a year earlier, and Ksenia’s fellow chosen-ones were squished when a 20-story tall monster waltzed into town. Ksenia still managed to defeat the monster on her own, and even though she never heard from the ‘cosmic force’ again after that, she continued to hunt down giant monsters as a part-time job during her time at the academy.
This is a paid DLC.

NEW skin: Shinobi Rocco
Rumor spread of a new, hooded figure dispensing justice to the injust. Where they were once hunted by Rocco the Lawman by day, they were now hunted by Shinobi Rocco by night. They say Evil never sleeps, but they never told you that’s because the Righteous made Evil afraid of the dark.
This is a paid DLC.

NEW skin: Sun Wukong Skree
A merchant travelling to the western edges of the Galaxy once met a strange being on an asteroid. The being came into this world by the name of Sun Wukong, and claimed to wield unimaginable powers. The merchant scoffed at his new companion, and told him “You look like a Monkey, but if you truly are a primate you would be a King among them.” Sun Wukung glared at the merchant and zapped him with lightning, burning to him to a crisp. “They called me the Monkey King once, but none remain to do so now. I have become Skree, and I am free!”
This is a paid DLC.

NEW skin: Clockwork Yoolip
Professor Milton Yoolip has made many inventions, but his best work is quite possible a fully-sentient robot that mimics his every move. Whenever duty calls but Yoolip would rather spend his time tinkering on new gadgets or go to the park with his granddaughter, he sends Clockwork Yoolip to take his stead. Few people even notice the difference, given the Professors eccentric personality and the many tools he usually carries around.
This is a paid DLC

NEW skin: Sir Jimmy Lionheart
The Lionhearts are forged for battle, so the everlasting peace they had brought to the realms grew boring after a couple of years. That’s when they heard about the Awesomenauts, a band of mercenaries embroiled in perpetual war, and set off to a land far far away to once-again fight side by side.
This is a paid DLC

NEW announcer: Ghosthouse
Shadow falls across the land – the midnight hour is close at hand. An Army of the Undead has risen from their graves and Baron Dreadfort himself commands the ghosts and ghouls that wander the streets. He speaks to you from beyond the void, sending shivers down your spine, yet beckoning you to participate in a game of Awesomenauts. The battlefields you have visited before appear as from a nightmare, and it feels as if on this particular night, there is so much more at stake than just your life…
This is a paid DLC.

NEW announcer: Rockstar announcer
Zippy Starburst is undoubtedly the biggest rock legend on this side of the Galaxy. His long and colorful history includes the introduction of head-tentacle banging and the ground-breaking album ‘The rise and rise of Zippy Starburst and the Worms from Sorona’.
This is a paid DLC.

NEW announcer: The Mind Collection
From deep within the unexplored corners of the galaxy comes a threat called The Mind Collection – a clustered, shared awareness spread over countless assimilated species. This force will slow for nothing, and neither strength nor technology can keep it at bay. It seeks only to expand itself and slithers from system to system like an oil spill, leaving nothing but itself in its wake. Pray that The Mind Collection never reaches your world.
This is a paid DLC

NEW announcer: Skree
Lookit all deez puppets, man! Dey be fightin’ and scrapin’ over all deez here shrines Skree built. I is gonna spy on dem and see how dey be goin’ after each other in da battle station. Dis gonna be fun, ja, ha, ha! Yes, yes, Skree’s own wicked commentary gonna add to da fun, live from da control chamber! My people, dis gonna be a great day for da gods!
This is a paid DLC

NEW: random announcer option
Use this option to make the game select a random announcer at the beginning of every match! This only uses the announcers you own.

NEW game system: Leveling
Awesomenaut teams will now level up during games based on the experience they accumulated. Each level will increase their damage and health. The new system will make damage and health upgrades less dominant in games, improve the flow of games by smoothing out the damage/health curve during a match, reduce the length of long games and overall make it more fun to play!

Reworked balance
The XP system brings a complete rework of the balance of the game. There are so many changes that we can’t list them all individually here.

NEW: Sharper characters and levels
-Increased the resolution of Froggy G, Leon Chameleon, Raelynn, Clunk, Derpl, Yuri and the team-droid. Their in-game art is now just as sharp as the art of the newest characters.
-Increased the resolution of the level art in all the levels (only on High/Medium graphics quality, Low remains as it was).
-Optimised and restructured textures so that peak texture usage is only a little bit higher than it used to be on High/Medium graphics quality, and unchanged on Low graphics quality

NEW: round collisions
Most area effects now have round, instead of square, collisions. In several instances, graphics and area of effect radii have been tweaked. This change will make skills and visual feedback a lot more precise. The most notable improvements include Clunk’s Explode, Derpl’s Nuke, Ayla’s Rage and Yuri’s Timebubble.

NEW: Better tooltips
Tooltips in shop have been updated. They should be easier to read and have more detailed information.

NEW Custom Games options
Lots of new options for Custom Games! Including some really crazy ones like slipperiness, stealth for everyone, spawning a Solar Boss on death, dealing knockback on every hit and even not being able to walk back.

Fixes and improvements
This patch comes with hundreds of smaller fixes and tweaks to all aspects of the game! Too many to list them all here!
