Incoming optional client update

 We will be releasing a new app version starting September 6, with the following changes:

  • Fixed bug in White Star Time Machine where certain visual effects would not show up. 
  • Added support for linking Corporations with the upcoming BATTLESHIP APOLLO game (all members of the Corporation will receive crystals after a successful link)

You do not need to update to this version to continue playing the game.

On mobile platforms, the update will be rolled out gradually over 7 days. You may not see it immediately available on your device, and the devices picked to offer the update each day are random.
