"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."

"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.

In this amazing game you can build your own castle, filling it with- We're sorry, but this review crashed unexpectedly.
You can also customize your hero and use them to raid other- We're sorry, but this review crashed unexpectedly.
Invade other players' castles in your own mighty quest for- We're sorry, but this review crashed unexpectedly.
This game also has the unique feature of being the first game ever for me that failed to report a game crash because the game's crash reporter crashed while reporting a crash. Nice one, Ubisoft. Recommended only if you have plenty of patience, because when you can actually play the game, it's very fun.

Ugh this game is ok.


The reason I hate it is because it purposely keeps it running in the background when you close it just to put more hours on your account... Disturbing.

This is an entertaining concept, and I hope it only grows more refined over time. It's frustrating to bump into limitations as you design your Gauntlet of Doom, but rewarding as you unlock new elements for it by besting other players' attempts to keep you out of their treasure room.

Some players are very clever and creative with their use of traps and placement of monsters, while most just slap down everything they can and hope for the best.

I've only played one class so far, so I can't tell you how they compare, but the fighter does a good job steamrolling through a lot of situations. The game's writing and atmosphere are fun, plainly not taking itself too seriously, a good match for the Dragons Lair-esque cartoonish art style.

I would have liked to have kept playing it. But then I realized I had better things to do with my time and money than pay to win.

My fiance thanks you, Ubisoft.

69/10. Would pay to win with her any day.

Wait...that came out wrong.

durring Beta, this game was grindy, but playable. Castles needed some work and carful balancing due to the competative nature of the leaderboards. This company lacked that skill, and in turn drove away players. Come release, the game became pay to win, to increase their profits, while only drove more away. now all that is left is a hollow shell of a game that has been micro transactioned into a pay to wait game.

This game was great and very enjoyable in the past and seemed to have a great future... But... In the end... Ubisoft fell prey to pay to play and ruined an amazing game.

UGHH...
I really liked this game though. I'm speechless. I remember when I started playing this game (In BETA) I was having fun, but now it's literally PAY-2-WIN...

Ubisoft! YEY

This is a very good game, I like the idea and the format. The only problem I have is that after a while it narows down to whether your willing to pay, or just quit playing. over all a great game.

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!
