What’s Changed - Arena Updates

Updated: Mar 18, 2019


The Axiom Soccer Closed Beta will soon be coming to an end but we have some small additional updates planned for our community!

The Axiom Soccer Federation has been busy updating the pitch to reflect our new competitive gamemode and more, plus new footballs have been issued!

Read on for more details:

Big Features!

  • The Axiom Soccer Federation have rolled out new pitch surfaces for the Skyline Theater Arena, each with its own specific gamemode branding! - Green pitch and light blue highlights for Friendly and Local play. - Red pitch and green highlights for Axiom Academy. - Blue pitch and yellow highlights for Axiom League.

  • New player profile icons! Represent your favorite Axiom Soccer Federation team with unlockable team badges. A small selection are currently available with more planned in future updates.

  • Added an in match options menu! A much requested community feature, this adds the ability to adjust game settings without the need to leave a match. Further improvements to this menu are planned.

Arena

  • Removed Claws and Firebrands logos from the pitches in favour of game mode indicators.

  • Removed some of the team coloring from different ends of the pitch.

Competitive

Gameplay

  • Vertical lookspeed is now the same as horizontal lookspeed! Keeping aiming more in line with other third person shooters.
