They even made a trailer to showcase some of the new additions.

According to the developers, everything from the graphics and the audio to the gameplay and netcode have been significantly remastered and radically improved. They consider it such a significant update, that its practically a sequel. As such, they also warn that it may be a bit more buggy or unrefined than past updates.
