The biggest changes are new maps are coming in 2020. Many players have already thoroughly memorized the layout and naming conventions of the maps in the game right now.

This will also be joined by better accessibility options, like colorblind support, as well as a bunch of features to make the game less annoying in other ways. A feature to report hackers is coming as well. The other major update for this improvement is the addition of better localizations to expand international appeal for the game.
Finally, we’re getting a full friends list option added in over time. Players will see the ability to communicate and play games with friends added over time. The feature set will likely “barebones at first,” but will be more refined as time goes on. That could be in as early as December.
