"At its core, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot shows a lot of promise. I love the dungeon building and the quick and instant gratification the hack n’ slash looting gives."
Destructoid

"The name may be a bit confusing, then, but there's no mistaking the warmth lurking within wonderful chunky art and the neat dovetailing of complimentary systems."

About This Game

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a brand new game from Ubisoft Montreal that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!

As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players!

Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!

Key Features

  • Castle Looting: Prepare your hero for battle and charge into one of many player-created castles to test your skills and might! Oh yeah, and don’t forget all the loot and gold waiting for you in the treasure room at the end of the castle.
  • Castle Defense: Protect your treasure from the greedy hands of your neighbors. You and your friends can build custom castles with majestic rooms and fill them with deadly monsters like fire-breathing dragons, nose-picking Cyclopes, swarming vampires and more. Then, surprise your foes by boosting your castle’s defenses with fearsome fire cannons, spike traps and other surprises. The more enemies perish in your castle, the higher the reward.
  • Variety of Heroes: The outlandish world of Opulencia has an eccentric cast of characters ranging from the knight, Sir Painhammer, a good-natured tough guy to Blackeye Bowgart, an archer with a chip on his shoulder. More will be available in the near future.
  • Character Customization: Plain armor is out this season, shiny metal is in. Use your well-earned gold to shop and customize and level up your heroes in style.
  • Showboating: Think you are the baddest of the bad in all of Opulencia? Prove it by creating different challenges for your foes and compare yourself on the leaderboards.
  • Intense Action: Play on your own schedule. Short sessions means you can play when you want to. It also doesn’t hurt to have others playing at the same time, but you don’t need them playing simultaneously to experience looting at its best.

Man I loved this game! You won't get to play it though, it caught a rash of hateful little nosebleeders who would rage against players as 'pay to win' horribles and so without anyone supporting the game it is being turned off now. May all those brats have children that are just like them! You'll never get to try this particular flavor of fun, your life has been deprived of it so why not curse those brats along with me and then go buy something in your own favorite f2p game to show those punks who's got work, gets themselves paid, and rains tigerblood winnings on their funtime like a boss. Cheers!

It's a good game fun to play in your free time. But what I hated the most about it was that every 30 minutes or so it would crash and I lose part of what I did. Other wise Great game 8.5/10

This is a good strategy game, with a bit of money management, but overall is a fun game, especially for a free game. I enjoy it and I recommand it. Enjoy !

Farewell Mighty Quest.

I wanted to like you, I really did.

I tried my best to overlook your ever-growing list of flaws, your increasingly money-grubbing ways, I lowered my expectations until they were subterranean. But in the end, I realised it's not me, its you. So long, and don't let the door hit you on the way out Ubi.

Wish I could say it had been fun, but then I would be lying.

Cons: Ubisoft, low dev, money eaters, commercial fail

This game will be online as long as it will give them money. Devs wont upgrade this game, this is Ubisoft's game. Patches and updates will be very minimal, in most of cases they will add more premium content, this is Ubisoft's game.

When enought players notice this ♥♥♥♥, Ubisoft will throw this game into the trash and you won't hear about it anymore, becouse this is Ubisoft's game.

I recommend this game to everyone who's enjoying that policy.

I was browsing trough my steam when I found this game, I remembered that I had played it for a little bit but for some reason I did not have it dowloaded; I found it odd for usually I leave games dowloaded even if i I don't use them again so I dowloaded it again.

I quickly came to realize why I had deleted it, the controls are sloppy, there is no way to change absolutely anything related to them and there are a lot of mecanics in the overall game which quickly get onto your nerve within the first few minutes of playing; end of story it is deleted again and now I am making a review so I don't forget why I stopped playing it again.

This game is perfect evidence of how bad controls can run a possibly fun game.

I think you should get this game it is a lot of fun but just a tip when being shown how to upgrade the heart of your place only do it once if you try doing it again the your game will bug out and not start up again pro tip haha and yeah I know it's shutting down.. it really sucks! I haven't played in so long then started up a new game and then boom I see it's being closed.. rip boy's rip.. it was a good run! SOOO much fun on this game I hope they bring it back later on down the road or even some one else make it again heh I'll really miss this game :( but even in it's time of closing I still say play it while you can it truly is a fun ggame in my opinion and I'll miss screwing around with my friends on it

Free to play always makes me suspicious.
While I had fun for a bit, it wasn't worth paying for and the shop was all pay-to-win.

Now I see it is being put out of its misery on 25th October.
It's a shame, yet good riddance.

I'm only giving this game, which i played a lot more off of Steam than on, a thumbs down because it is yet another game Ubisoft is killing.

I'm not sure what happened to this once great studio, but it certainly isn't the Ubisoft that I supported for years, and has went from one of my favorite studios, to probably my least favorite. Well right above Wildcard anyway.

Was a really fun game, and was not bothered by the fact that people willing to put money into it, came out with better stuff in the end. That is how capatilism works. Especially in a free to play game.

Like many games of its type, free vs money will always put you at a disadvantage, much like the real world...and TCGs. God the amount of money I spent on MTG is simply crazy, but...I had a lot of really cool cards...cards that won a lot of matches.

Update: Dec 5, 2014 patch added a way to buy and sell items on the Steam Market!
Game is blatantly pay-to-win as you can now buy and sell castle defenses on Steam Market. If you have a disposable income and you're looking for a shallow game where you can just buy your way to the top of the leaderboards using Steam Market then this game is for you!

TLDR: Game is a decent dungeon-maker / dungeon-raider, but is highly Pay-to-Win; be prepared to grind countless hours if you don't want to use the real-money cash shop for "boosts", "item packs", or just outright buy the good defenses from Steam Market. Also Ubisoft DRM (U-play) sucks!

Has lots of potential to be a great game but sadly won't live up to it's potential due to developers focusing more on Pay-to-Win content instead of balance.

This game had been in closed beta for almost a year and had a major rework due to backlash and criticisms over their shoddy mobile-games-style "pay-dollars-to-not-wait-X-hours" business model. Amazingly, it took them almost a year before they realized their business model ain't working for a PC game - despite the constant complaints and whines of the players.

Game got rework and released open beta on Febuary, 2014. It was buggy and unbalanced, but that was expected for a game that was on beta. What's not to be expected though, is for devs to start shoving DLC, advertisments for other ubisoft games, and locking characters behind a paywall - when the game is supposed to be testing for bugs and balance. Isn't the whole point of a beta to flesh-out the kinks of the game? Not "try to milk as much money from your players before the game even gets a full release".

My major complaint about this game is the terrible pace of balance fixes. Patches usually come in a bi-monthly basis. People have listed problems with the game's balance ever since the start of the open beta - problems that made the game repetitive, stale, and boring. The devs even acknowledged these problems themselves even as early as March - yet they barely touched the balance when it comes to patches; it's usually 1 minor balance change followed by more DLC, content disguised to entice you to spend money on blings (pets, costumes, crafting patch), or more advertisements.

The slow pace of balance changes results in "flavor-of-the-month" setups where people will just resort to the most imbalanced setups that's currently available. This is what makes the game a repetitive and boring choir, as 90% of the time, you'll find people are just using the same setups with little variations in their defences. This trend had been going on for over a year - and looking at how the devs are more content to shove DLC on your face than listening to players' feedback - then this game ain't going anywhere.

Update: (August 2014 - Crafting patch)
The crafting patch has turned the game into Pay-to-Win, again!.. This patch introduced crafting rare monsters and equipment by collecting rare materials - these materials are so rare that most players who don't spend money on the cash shop will only be able to craft very few rare monsters and equipment; those who use the cash shop have a clear advantage over those who don't.

Update: (October 2014 - Release)
Game got released and it's still Pay-to-Win; I tried attacking castles but those who have tons of rare monsters seem impossible for me to win against. Meanwhile, my castle with only a few rare monsters get rolled over by other players.

Update (December 5, 2014 - Added the ability to buy and sell items on the Steam Market)
Game is blatantly pay-to-win as you can now buy and sell casle defenses on Steam Market. If you have a disposable income and you're looking for a shallow game where you can just buy your way to the top of the leaderboards using Steam Market then this game is for you!

This game was fun but the past few months its more pay to win than ever. Unless you grind like there is no tomorrow you can't build the traps. The old ones you had already spent time and money on they put as diseased and are basically depowered trash. And now there are special double/triple traps or monsters to make. but they need so many epic parts that you need to buy loot bags for a chance at an item...of which you will need 3 or 4 to make. The game was fun. even with the people with glitching and trap castles. now its just pointless if you want to go in and do anything. It is still fun if you want to log in and take on a castle. Maybe you will find a fun one. Usually not. Now a days its spring trap into enraged juiced baddies or so many bought creatures that its unwinnable. Recently what finally did it was another mage nerf to make his key spell faster but now it does no damage. What was a fun cute game quickly turned into who can spend the most cash. Ah well on to the next game in the vast steam libary.
