Patch 2.4: Eye of the Storm will see Awesomenauts add a new character, Sentry X-58, "a tough infiltration robot, specialized at turning enemies' strength against them." He also has a bevy of other abilities like damage absorption and a Black Hole Sun attack, where all the enemies have to listen to the Soundgarden song on repeat until they go insane. Or maybe they just get pulled into a single point until it blows them up. Whatever.
Another addition from the patch comes in the form of replay functionality. A game played is automatically recorded and can be viewed in the replay menu.
Here's a couple of replay video showing off the feature:
In short, that new stuff is: - the Replay System is now available! - Sentry x-58, a new Awesomenaut! Awesomenauts expansion keeps expanding The crowdfunded expansion for Awesomenauts called Awesomenauts:Starstorm received another big update last week with Patch 2.4: The Eye of the Storm. First off, a new character, Sentry X-58, has been added to the Starstorm roster. With this addition the total amount of playable characters for Awesomenauts has risen to 18. Sentry is a tough infiltration robot, specialized at turning his enemies' strenght against them. To this end, he can create an temporary damage absorbtion field around him. He can then save this absorbed damage and use it to empower his Black Hole Sun attack, sucking enemies to a single point until it violently explodes.

Whenever a player plays a match, the game is automatically recorded. These recordings can then be viewed by visiting the replay menu. The replays enable players to analyze their playstyle, share their best moments and even help them create their own little stories in the Awesomenauts universe. To showcase the replay functionality, two exciting battles between some of the best Awesomenauts teams has been recorded and commentated.
