A Solo Play Discussion:
The Clockwork Expansion allows players to square off against four fiendishly automated factions that can be used in solo, competitive or co-operative games. Compete against the:
- Mechanical Marquise 2.0 – Dodge her marauding patrols as you try to stop her from completing her building tracks.
- Electric Eyrie: Shore up the Woodland’s defenses against this fearsome invader. If they go unchallenged, the Woodland will soon be flooded with their forces.
- Automated Alliance – Police these radicals and raze their bases before a little uprising turns into a massive rebellion.
- Vagabot – Hunt the dastardly Vagabot across the many clearings of the game or attempt to court him with items.
