A third test run of the MMO Closed Beta is up and running (and will be available until May 18), we are getting tons of feedback and continue to improve game stability and address bugs.
Please note, there will be no Judgement Hour this week - we really are sorry for the inconvenience. We are tackling performance issues during large scale combat with many players and horses in close proximity, and are working very hard on the solution to this issue. Your precious belongings are safe for now!
On top of this, we’ve been writing some exciting lore, which will give an insight into the beliefs, traditions and customs of in-game folk. We’re excited to share this with you soon so keep an eye out!
We also want to add a quick shout out for our friends at Big Way Games, who have developed and launched their steampunk hardcore RPG game, Steam Hammer on Steam Early Access.
Utilizing our game engine, Steam Hammer offers an immersive open class system, action-packed combat on the ground and in the air, and awesome sandbox aspects in a gritty Victorian open-world setting, filled with jetpacks, customizable airships and other wondrous machinery!
Just as a reminder, we want to be completely clear that we have only licensed the Life is Feudal engine - we have not helped develop the Steam Hammer game nor are we its publisher!
We hope this patch will significantly increase the quality and satisfaction of your gameplay, by removing almost all crashes some of you might have encountered. We have quite literally provided over 100 crash fixes in this patch! We really hope you’ll be happy to see the difference!
We also started the development of the HOW TO modding guide, which is available here.
You can expect a patch with full Steam Workshop support to be released soon!
