        Release Notes: The biggest feature is the new multi-player mode. It allows you to have fun with players all around the globe. The new tutorial is quite detailed and covers the most important parts. It is especially aimed at new players, but players of the former UH versions will also find new information. Performance has been increased by 50-100% for most players. The game now is completely translated into: German, French, Italian, Norwegian, and Estonian. Some other translations record good progress: Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish. There is a full translation of the tutorial in German.
