The latest update for Gloria Victis greatly increases the immersion experienced by players!

Posted by on

Greetings!

The latest update for Gloria Victis greatly increases the immersion experienced by players! The most important change is implementation of fights between NPCs – foxes sneak towards the farms to hunt chickens and gooses, poachers hunt wild animals and mercenaries serving one nation rush on the another faction’s guards in sight in Valley of Death. In the upcoming updates various groups of NPCs will start waging their wars against another ones, bringing even more life to the world of Gloria Victis!

Moreover, gone are the times of inexhaustible resource nodes – with this update players are able to deplete them and they will be replaced with other resources, so the gatherers will have to continuously seek the best spots. In effect, actions performed by players have even bigger impact of the surrounding reality.

We have also refreshed the character selection menu to improve the newcomers experience – not only it is looking much better but also brings much more immersion from the very beginning. Meanwhile we continue the launcher rework and implementation of the dynamic events, which will greatly increase the meaning of actions performed by players, we are also working on filling up the world with breathtaking points of interest. Stay tuned!
