Post news RSS Customization Update v1.1.0 Is Live In Public Beta!

Great news Lords and Ladies! The awaited Customization patch is finally released - but a little differently than we've done previously, so please keep reading! We apologize for the delay, as our team faced complications with the development and transitioning into a new chapter for Lords and Villeins.

Posted by on

The patch is now ready. However, the customizable difficulty that it brings with it, introduces an extensive level of variability of game play. This makes testing and verifying issues in a simulation based game like ours even more complex. While we did our best to identify and fix any problems prior to release, in this case we decided to take extra precautions and launch the patch initially in public beta only.

In order to join, simply right click on the game in your library, select Properties, Betas and find the "customization_update" branch. We can't wait to hear your feedback, please come share your thoughts about the update to the discussions or our Discord server!

And don't worry, this is not the end for Lords and Villeins. We will continue improving the game, and are already hard at work on the next patch - details of this update will be revealed in the next few days!
