Veil of crows leaves early access on the 18th of October, 2018!

We are excited to announce real-time strategy sandbox game Veil of Crows is finally leaving early access! Veil of Crows has been in early access for a year and a half, and as ready to break its shackles and reveal version 1.0 to the public.


Release features.

On release day a number of features will unlock, allowing fans to experience the game in a new light. Some of these features include.

Customizable armies.

At launch, players will be able to customize each of their units how they see fit. Not only can all weapons and equipment be upgraded, but players can also change how their coat of arms is displayed, or select a different breed of horse for their cavalry.
All upgrades come at a cost, and different variations may impact unit movement speed, momentum damage, and resource cost when training. Will you go light, cheap & nimble? Or will you unleash an army of heavily armored juggernauts?


New worlds to conquer!

Veil of Crows will launch with a number of new realms, each with their own climate, resource impact, resource limitations, and frequency of invasions.

Each realm plays a little differently and will require the player to make adjustments to their strategy during seasonal changes. The far northern Island of Norseguard is frequently attacked by Vikings and has a winter that will freeze not only your crops but your very hopes of living a peaceful existence. Stock up on food or be forced to rob other factions just to keep your people happy and loyal.

Three worlds will ship with Veil of Crows, but there is plenty of room for additions after launch.


Completely randomized factions.

No longer will you be forced to battle the same factions over and over, all AI factions will be completely randomized at the start of every fresh campaign. Not only their name and coat of arms, but their armies equipment will be too. No two factions will be the same.


So there you have it!

Over the next two weeks, we will be highlighting some of the major changes that have occurred during the early access period. At it's humble EA launch, VOC was barely a fraction of the game it is now, and are extremely excited to finally leave early access.

We could not have come this far without you, the fans. With your feedback and support, we have shaped the game into what it is today. Pat yourself on the back, strap on your helmet, mount your steed, and get ready to charge into battle!

Veil of crows launches on the 18th of October, 2018!
