Gloria Victis - Realistic Medieval MMORPG
July 24 - BartoldGV

Greetings!

For the last two weeks we have been working on two massive features – skills and building system. In few days the first versions will be done, greatly improving the Gloria Victis gameplay.

Let’s start with the building system. First version will offer possibility to the hire mercenary guards or upgrade the existing towns and fortifications with stronger gates and better offensive equipment, such as wooden logs to drop on the enemies heads or pots with boiling water, oil and tar. These objects will be destroyable as well, so the players will have to repair them in co-operation with each other inside their faction in order to the keep defensive structures in good condition.



But the upgrading won’t be limited to only the most powerful guilds – every single player will be able to help their faction by gathering the required resources!

In nearest future this system will be expanded with a possibility to build the whole towns and castles, players will also be able to upgrade the mines or farms to gain better resources spots, build the crafting workshops or hire more mercenaries to defend their lands!



Now let’s say a word or two about the skills. The first version will include dozens of the passive skills, giving the players even more freedom in developing their characters with our class-less progression system. It will also allow to significantly differ the characters and create the unique builds.



These awesome improvements will be implemented next week – at the moment we are testing them to make sure that they are polished enough to be shown to our players.

Stay tuned!

Greetings!

Today evening we will launch a new version of our website shop! Except the nicer and much more ergonomic interface, it offers many new possibilities. Right now in its assortment you can find players and guilds memorials or a chance to design your own content which would be implemented in game, like NPCs or locations – and more surprises soon!

Available packets have been slightly modified as well: as the Journeyman packet was causing many misunderstandings related with a access to the game, we removed it – instead there is a new packet which, except the currently available rewards, contains also exclusive materials describing Midlanders and Ismirs beliefs!

As the game development grows we would implement new packets and items, but we never forget about those who supported us so far – currently existing packets would be also continuously expanded with an additional content!

At the end, few words about the current development stage. In the nearest updates we will implement complex in-game tutorials to introduce new players to the game mechanics, as well as the achievements, being a massive expansion of the Daily Events system, and much more! At the same time, in order to give you more space for gruesome battles, we work on expanding (hah, more than doubling!) the world’s size soon!

New lands will contain a new great city, which players would be able to capture,control, settle in it, upgrade and fortify, as well as a hideout for those who would choose to become the renegades, as freedom of choice is one of the key features in Gloria Victis. They will be able to their belonging to either Midlanders or Ismirs behind, with their suicidal crusades against the Azebs and everlasting conflict caused by the Walter’s Leveling, and live on their own – raid, plunder, conquer and even create their own, player-ruled nation!

With it we would also implement more spawnpoints and an ability to choose a one among the all controlled by a player’s nation, so the PVP will become even more dynamic as the warbands would be able to react much faster to the enemies raids! And last but not least: we are reworking our inventory system to implement various unlockable sacks and backpacks – each with a different capacity – what you were asking us for!

It’s another big step on our way to make Gloria Victis what we and you wish it to become – an exceptional game which belongs to the players as much as to its developers, since your awesome support is the only power which allows us to exist! To develop this project we have to extend the team, but thanks to you our – and yours! – dreams can come true! Thank you for all what you have done for this game so far – and see you in battle!

Gloria Victis – by Gamers, with Gamers, for Gamers!

P.S. The latest update contains new pieces of music – here is the examplary one:

Greetings!

We have a pleasure to present you the next update! With it you receive some signifficant improvements to the territory control system – destroyable gates and pots with a boiling oil!

– Reworked the party system
