Mercs: Shadows of War is an open and realistic medieval world, sets in Europe in 1225, massively multiplayer online. Most importantly, it will be a free game.

Six different game modes for users eager to action, can fight tirelessly on each server:

On the one hand, we got the three classical game modes most people know, where you could get used to the battle mechanics and gain some experience.

Team DeathMatch, DeathMatch and Duel mode.

On the other hand, we have three other very interesting modes, which are:

Skirmish mode - relentless struggle - Explorers of the armies fighting in exchange for a reward. This reward is based on equipment used by the other team.

Siege mode: Destructible environment, a fortress to conquer and many reinforcements for each team, where you will be able to use artillery and siege equipment, attacking and defending.

Raid mode: Destructible environment. Fight against villagers, loot their bodies and houses. Only one life to get the reward, SO BETTER NOT TO DIE!!!

Starting in the year 1225, during feudal Europe, the armies of the nobles rise up against his neighbors in constant infighting. Only one thing unites them, fight the infidels. Likewise, the Muslim nobility also rises in defence of their territories. Who will you join with?

Mercenary or not, you choose your destiny. From working your land to lead armies or just getting sit on the throne of a kingdom. It's up to you.

Let's begin...

Indie of the Year Awards

One more week with a new weekly report. The combat system is almost ready. This week we will release the new version, needs some work for a few weeks to let it complete and polished. The next step will be make it multiplayer for enjoyment of the community.

Also bring other news, this week we will be writing in the "Features" section. We will explain each feature separately. In these last weeks we have been developing ideas that you will like.

Stone Modular House Modular House 2.0
Modular House Type 1 Interior

Between these images we can visualize a new modular house. We can also see the new version of the house presented last week, and an image of the interior.

These houses do not enter in the tiers. The houses of the tiers are houses, not modular, found inside major cities of the game. We can say that these houses are more protected because they are found inside an enclosure such as those walls.

This video shows different houses we can do, we have pending extend the models, add windows, etc.

until next week!

Support us!!

Kind regards!

Great project! Hope you finish it as planned.
About that dedicated server. Will player be able to host just combat modes or MMO server also?

Right now we have planned to do only game modes for dedicated servers, maybe in the future we do a light version of mmo for dedicated servers. Where you can choose a kingdom, duchy or county as map to play on the dedicated server, with the only limitation on the size of the territory.

In indiedb you will have the full version of the combat system. In Desura we will sell early access to the full version of the game. MMO and game modes (combat system). The game is free to play, so it is a form of financing.

When we have the playable mmo, we'll get into Greenlight. We do not work with dates. Within a few days we will launch a version at Desura, which will be updated every two weeks until we finish the objectives.

I do not know, we can release a mmo version in the first quarter of next year where players can wander around the area of the city of Pamplona. Expanding the territory and adding new features at short intervals.

Well , best of luck bro.
but take my sincere and brotherly advice and MAKE SURE , even if you release this on PAID Early Access on Steam (i have no knowledge of Desura , so i cant advice u on that) ,the game must have AMPLE amounts of good mmo features unlocked and ready since... the community is VERY unforgiving there and if u want this game to bloom , avoid the early downvotes and -ve reviews.
One more concern is , that is the unity engine impressive enough? The UE4 engine that has recently come out at reasonable rates , might be a better option to go for.
This game here :
is being developed by a small sutdio like yours , BUT it was on verge of being released in unity engine , but UE4 became available and they DELAYED their release by several months to integrate better Graphics Engine into their game... You might wanna check out their IndieDB page , their homepage AND FB page to get a better idea.
Im not against using the unity engine , but will the wider audience be so much forgiving.
I suggest you discuss this with your team in GREAT detail and reach the best decision you can
I know ur a small company and i really appreciate your constant communication with me , so i really must say that im impressed by the visuals and i want you guys to work overtime if needed to make this game a big hit!
Just make sure you make the best decision with regards to whats best for this game in the long run!
(Good Luck and ALL the best.)

We stayed with Unity3d, to us seems best to make a project of this size. We know it works and it facilitates the incorporation of new members because of the ease of learning. The new version of Unity is similar in terms of graphics to EU4.

We are currently delaying the arrival of the first alpha because the team member is working offline and we can not contact him except on occasion. Hopefully soon appear with the finished work.

For now we are working on the gameplay waiting to receive the 3D models of the first neighborhood, San Nicolas.

kind regards!
