We are glad to inform you that we are in the home stretch with transferring Gloria Victis to Unity 5! The engine upgrade allowed us to highly increase game performance, so even more of our players will be able to enjoy the smooth running game. Test results are awesome – FPS increase reaches even up to 50%!
At the same time moving to Unity 5 allowed us to significantly improve visuals! Many of them, like high quality textures or advanced lightning effects, have already been implemented, but even more will come in the future!
What’s new? Territory control system will be expanded in the next update. To take over the most important strategic points players will have to cooperate and show their brilliant combat skills. It will highly increase the role of team play. As an example we can bring the headquarters of Brotherhood of Lord’s Wrath, a faction of swordsmen recruiting both from Midlanders and Ismirs, for ages training in order to fight their common enemies – Azebs. To gain their respect and access to their keep, players will need to coordinate actions of a few teams, so they will be able to complete a series of smaller objectives in a specified time. Of course dealing with such a challenge will bring an appropriate reward, so this land will soon become an arena for thrilling PvP battles.
As a response to many requests from our players we will implement an optional FPS camera soon! Playing in this mode will allow for deeper immersion into the atmosphere of Medieval world and greater excitement during exploration and combat!
Big changes will also come to crafting system – it’s window will be fully reworked and expanded by additional options, like e.g. recipes sorting. In the near future, party and equipment windows will also be improved, so there are things to wait for!
See you in battle!
