Finally SCEA gives light that they are currently in the development stages for patch update 1.3. They did not go into detail about what it will feature, but as one of the game designers said, “it includes some new game stuff...not just fixes. Here's a hint...its not new free layouts like we are releasing with v1.2. It has to do with troops. What could it be?”
PSU will be one of the first to give you the details on 1.3 so make sure to continuously drop by.
