City of Steam Alpha 0.7.2 Patch Notes

The Ultra Marines would probably be proud of that robot.

These are the patch notes from the third City of Steam alpha weekend which happened last week. There no official path notes list available at the moment so I thought I make a list of the changes being made to the game and I will post new patch notes as City of Steam gets updated in the future. This list took a hell of long time to do.

The main additions are new playable classes, hotkey changes, new hairstyles and many quest and bug fixes.
