Lichdom: Battlemage 1.2 - Hotfix 2014.12.02.70219-Release_v1_2_3 Now Live!

We have just released a hotfix to our latest build for Lichdom: Battlemage 1.2. This 415MB patch includes the following update:

  • All loot machine events can be replayed when fast traveling in NG+
  • Increased loot rarity drops in NG+
    • As players move through NG+ rarity increases on random drops (not pustules, loot machines or chests, for instance) so that Common and Uncommon are removed from the lists and Rare becomes the baseline.
    • Lieutenants, Minibosses, and Bosses have a much better chance for a Legendary drop in NG+
    • Some ‘gift’ drops in Old Drivasser will still be awarded, but those drops exist outside the random loot drop system

It might be fun to play for some people, but it wasn't for me.

Lichdom: Battlemage is basically a first person shooter with magic. The advertising goes like "be a mage with unlimited power, no cooldowns or anything". Having unlimited power, the "mage" feels fairly limited. Not only does your magic often enough feel incredibly weak and slow, the entirely unnecessary base damage/health value increase over the course of the game makes fighting a lot more annoying than it is fun.
The game starts off being rather easy. Enemies in the first two regions of the game (Drivasser City and the caves underneath) are pretty easy to defeat. However, during the course of the third region the player is introduced to (the snowy Greyteeth Mountains) difficulty tends to spike and reach a level where combat becomes a tedious chore and no fun at all anymore. Increasingly large groups of enemies dotted with more and more "miniboss" or "empowered mob" kind of foes start applying a headache inducing number of rapidfire CC effects on the player, which are terribly hard- to often impossible to dodge or deflect. For example, there will be a low powered ranged-attack mob shooting arrows that freeze the player. While damage to the player will break the ice, those mobs shoot these arrows in rather rapid succession, freezing you on every hit. This combined with CC effects of other enemies that usually spawn in tow of these can lead to the player being frozen, stunned, slowed or otherwise impaired litterally for minutes before there is even a slight chance to break such a chain, given that the player survives it at all.
That said, the players very few own useful CCs are usually frail, weak, slow to deploy and outright unrelieable. For example freezing: You can usually freeze most enemies with a simple Ice-beam spell or an ice shot, which usually works on trashmobs with no to little special effects. However, enemies which you would actually NEED to be frozen for "Combat Control" (which is was CC stands for after all) are either not affected, or the effect works only for maybe a half to two seconds, which doesn't really give you time for a worthy followup. That said, all enemies (especially bosses, minibosses and empowered mobs though) seem completely randomly immune to CC effects like freezing or being held in place by a kinetic spell, which, as mentioned before, makes these spells utterly unrelieable. The fact that enemies tend to spawn around and right next to you, doesn't really help you keep control or fight systematically.

Combine all that with a completely unnecessarily complex and unrewarding spell crafting system (granted, the smart inventory crafting system helps a little but it has it's limits), unnecessary difficulty spikes through utterly over-powerful enemy types being introduced, and a completely off-putting story and storytelling.
Story... I have yet to experience something of the sort in this game. Basically it goes: The Cult of Malthus is your enemy because it's evil. Go and murder as many as you can and kill their bosses. Oh and they have undead. Enjoy.
That not being enough, the "mage" (player character) called "Dragon" in this game, isn't actually a mage, but some random person the Cult has done wrong by, which is handed a pair of magic bracers that allow throwing spells, make you unkillable (if you die you get revived by waypoints without loadscreens and regular dying is actually part of the lore), and give you shields. The player character has actually no frickin idea how his/her magic works and is magic-wise generally a dumb n00b.

Personal note: I don't feel like playing a "mage" when the "mage" is just some random idiot with enchanted weapons and hasn't worked for their magic power by study or training AT ALL.

Anyway, now for the positive aspects of the game:

Amazingly beautiful environments. Seriously, the game world might lack some of the fidelity and dynamic effects of for example Crysis (this is a Cry-Engine 3 game after all), but still it is extremely beautifully crafted. Surroundings look entirely awesome, that much must be said. Characters, enemies and most special effects like spells or fire also look very nice (ice/freezing being the possible exception), but a game is not just about looks.
Sadly however, for all it's good looks, there's very little one can do in the environment. Shoot a few glowing plants or ice crystals here and there, and find a book or a scroll for some journalbound lore now and then, but that's largely it.


The soundtrack is decent, yet largely unremarkable.

The most positive aspect of the game for me is that, however in a game like this most people would maybe consider it unnecessary, the player get's to choose if the protagonist should be male or female, while the game is actually completely voice acted for both player genders. It might be a minor detail for some, but I find it very nice and would wish for more games to include that option.


So.
Very bad and annoying combat gameplay, unnecessary damage/healthrange increases, needlessly complex crafting system (with the recent addition of an automated crafting system which is alright), really really beautiful graphics, not mentionworthy story that doesn't really make too much sense, player choice of gender.

I cannot really recommend the game, but if you like first person shooters with a "challenging" gameplay in a fantasy setting with little in the way of a compelling tale and you don't mind retrying a lot, sure, go ahead.

This is a hard game to review, one one side you see wasted potential and in the others what marvelous thing they accomplished. First off, they are right, never before has being a mage been taken to this extend as far i know. you craft your own spell from components, and each spells can be influenced in 9 different ways, some with varying results. Some spell can behave completely differently depending on their focus while others barely register a change. But this is because some spells are better suited for some things, Control fire is inherently less. interesting than say control frost, but destruction fire on the other hand.... The game feature a large quantity of spell sigil, a decently long campaign with a new game +, challenging boss fights, i for one thought i was too strong for as moment, and the boss put me in my place. Being an immortal mage never been this fun and i hope to see a Lichdom 2 someday. Takes everything that's great with this game and improve on the rest and its GOTY material. as it stand the game is not too pricey and you will get a good bit of fun. The game strength is not its story, it is its mechanic. The graphics are pretty decent and it is one of the only game that force my computer to work for them, noticeably. If anyone need a comparison, this is the Serious Sam of magic games! It is one of the game i will/have taken the time to finish. Blast away!

On my second playthrough of this game and I have to say it is unexpectedly beter than I thought it would be.

If I had to try to classify it, I would say it is a mix of the old school magic FPS games like Hexen and Herectic with some Diablo loot collecting and some crafting thrown in for good measure.

Requires a decent rig, but it is great fun once you understand the mechanics of the game.

With 8 spell schools to choose from(each with 3 spell types) and three spell attunements to apply to each of those spells, there is a huge variety in what you can do.

The game is also more tactical and less twitch than I initially thought it would be which is also a good thing IMO.

In short, give it a try. Freeze, burn, shock, phase, corrupt, force and necro to your heart's content! Oh and craft new spells too...

I'd like for it to be very clear that this is a review coming from someone who only played it after it was released. It is not limited to only 3 types of spells - it's more like 8. you can only use 3 elements at once, but there's enough complexity to more intelligent builds that it is plenty.

I've heard people complain about how it isn't as interesting a spell process as Skyrim. As someone who has played more than 150 hours of Skyrim, I can honestly say these people are wrong. Could it still use some things from that game? Perhaps so, but if I had to choose one over the other, I have found Lichdom's magic FAR more entertaining. Just don't do the standard DPS only spells, and you will see what I mean. Using spells to fill your enemies with insect larvae, then use mindcontrol to buy you the 10 seconds you need for the larva to mature before setting fire to the right mob... Well, that's just not something you can do in Skyrim, and it's a blast juggling it like so.

Yes, it's quite linear - this is true. Only a few branch off options to do fights for "loot". They are worth it, are a blast, and are often a great challenge.

Give this game enough time for you to get to the first boss fight and get at least 2 interesting spell types in your inventory. You will find trying to build the perfect spell build to be very enjoyable. I seriously hope this game gets a sequel!

I realy want to love this game, I did at first.
It has spell crafting, a variety of abilities and promises to let the mage be the focus of a game for once. What I got was a slow, disappointing and frustrating FPS where you are limited to 3 guns and 3 utilities with interchangeable colours where everything you do is delayed by having to either charge your attack for 2 seconds a shot or dodge hordes of brutal opponents who can corner you, stun lock you and kill you in very few hits.

The Game totes the idea of being an all powerful battlemage but if anything it just reinforces the stereotype of the pasty faced mage hiding behind a barbarian's muscles. It took me a while to realise this but the spells just aren't fun. There are clearly correct combinations I'm meant to be using and if I stray from this path I find myself penalised, not only that but you lose your experience points and levels BY experimenting, forcing you to commit to your choices. An equivalent would be if call of duty reset your progress with rifles just because you played one game with a shotgun.

In essence there are 3 targeted weapons, 3 AOE weapons and 1 perfect block. These are then either turned into either a non-damaging control spell (status effects or tactical control), an all damage destruction spell or a middle of the road, does some damage but not much mastery spell. you then augment this further by picking an element to give it colour. So what's the difference between a Destructive Fire Missile and a Destructive Kinetic Missile? The latter is purple and does half the damage, the same goes for all comparisons, they're identical safe for particle effects and damage numbers.

But this just means that the only spells that harm are your destruction ones so you will always need them to actualy get the kill. You might think then you use a freeze control spell followed by a destruction spell. That works fine when you're fighting 1 enemy but is impractical when you're facing 5 at a time with ranged support. You will find yourself running round in circles charging your ranged attack because all the spells are bloody mega-man style charge up guns and hoping not to get sniped in the mean time.

The enemies are tough, brutal and tanky, meaning that they will all need betwean 2 and 4 shots to kill, some also have disabling attacks such as freezes and knock downs which will leave you helpless on the floor or having to drop that spell you were charging to defend yourself, thus forcing you to start charging all over again.

I REALLY wanted to like this game, but I just couldn't. It seems like it would be super fun, but after a handful of hours, I was purely bored and frustrated with the game. I'll investiage some of the changes made in the new patch, but I'm not expecting much.

It was pretty because they obviously spent a lot of time on the visual aspect of the spells and what they could do, but that was the main redeeming factor.

Gameplay was clunky and basically devolved into walk backwards while throwing X spell with Y particle effects until enemy is dead. However, you cna completely ruin your ability to play by crafting spells that don't do damage if you're not paying attention like I was at one point.

Sound and voice acting were fine; I'd say at least on par with most games.

I'd say pick it up if you can get it for ~10$, but that is about all it's worth. The story isn't interesting and the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

This game is really fun until you realize that you are bascially using the same spell effects over and over and over. This game had a really nice concept, but fell short of what it could have been.

At full price I would pass, but if it ever goes on sale think about picking it up.

Its not bad, but its not great. Its just average.

I have 44 hours on this game and I can say that it has to be one of the most repetitive and unsatisfying games I have played in a long time... The constant spamming and blocking really make for a dull ride, even if it looks nice. following a linear path just to constantly have enemies pop out of the ground makes it even worse. The story is the not so original revenge story. The spell system would have been nice if they actually made the spells more fun to use, without that it's pretty pointless. I understand that people worked really hard on making this game and I respect that, but you dont see me pooping in golden pouches and selling them saying "this will make you feel like a badass". this game in my honest opinion is nothing but a polished turd.

Good idea, horrible execution.

Lichdom Badass!

If your superpowers, like kinesis or electricity ... or corruption, aren't nearly as good as you want them to be ....

means: you must get up and walk to your coffee.
means: your toaster will not work applied to a tree.
means: you pay full.

In this case you may try some alternatives or get some playtime as mage and roast some *sses!

Great game! Great skills! Great crafting!

Playing it since EA and the game is still updated / improved & i am not bored.

Many bad voices about difficulty (enemies or crafting / mastery) - so Xaviant made it easier and adjustable.
For myself i never played this on easy or normal and i like the difficulty. Sure, i will die sometimes before i finish but that's the game.

This game is a new genre, I can describe it as Action-Magic FPS.

Its not like most RPG games, I didn't play much RPGs, but its totally different from skyrim and others alike.
everything is about making your spells and mastering them, upgrading and so on.
Its more like a classic shooter FPS games, but not with guns, with cool spells and magic.
So to enjoy the game you have to try different combination of spells, different abilities.
Gameplay is solid, sound effects are great, story sounds OK or generic so far.
Its built on CryEngine3, the graphics are very good.

So when you want to buy, consider what I said above, don't expect a casual RPG game, this is how to be a Battlemage.

The game does well in what it describe itself, however it seems many have expected different things about it, and that's why there are negative reviews, and some just couldn't understand its mechanics as I said its a new thing. (also could be the price, I got it on sale so I won't talk about that aspect)

When I first started and didn't know how the game works, I just died a lot, but when I got into it, I had a good time, spells and shield change the gameplay. (see community guides if you need anything)

In short, if you like to try another kind of old school shooter with better graphics and some spell crafting, get this one. Otherwise, don't .. you won't like for any other reasons.
I will add more details later as I advance in the game.

I loved the graphics and the game concept. However, the "smart upgrade" system doesn't do a good enough job of creating spells that are viable against the bosses you run into. I ran through the game at least 8 times in order to build up enough spell power to take on the second boss and still failed. The key to progressing through this game is to master the rather complicated spell creation process, which, for me, detracts from game play. Consequently, I gave up in frustration at the extremely high level of hit points you must damage in order to get past the super-tough bosses.

Many games balance the game play styles by allowing multiple levels of difficulty. This one doesn't. Ideally, a player should at least be able to downgrade the difficulty level to get past a particularly challenging point so that they can at least get some of the value they paid for with their hard-earned money. Some game developers just don't get this.

If you're an avid/hard core gamer and you like this kind of fantasy RPG, then you'll love it. If you're a casual gamer or one that doesn't like to get mired in micro-management then stay away from this one.

The graphics are beautiful, similar to Skyrim. Don't buy this for the storyline, the storyline is confusing and relatively cheesy. Make sure to get it on sale, too. I feel they delivered on the "invincible badass battlemage" but you may have to adjust the difficulty and craft some good spells before you feel truly powerful. The crafting system is ok, there are a lot of spells, but most of them are very similar. Lichdom is not very RPG-like and I don't think it should be considered one. Lichdom is one of those games that I'd rather listen to music and shoot some fireballs at a walking corpse then try to follow the story line. 7/10 recommended but gets old after a while

First off, let me say that Lichdom is amazing! If you love wizards, magic, or just want experience what it would feel like to be one... this IS THE ultimate spell caster simulator. On top of that... the game is very well polished, looks and plays amazing and is very fun. As you can see there is a ton of negative comments and feedback but these neighsayers have not looked deep enough into the game to realize this is NOT Call of Duty... or your typical FPS.

Lichdom is a RPG spell caster simulator. You are gifted with the power of magic and learn how to craft and wield it to work toward your goal. There are no vast inventories of items like armor and weapons... you are a mage... you collect Sigils... and that is all. Consider sigils the magical essence of a soul that only you (a wizard/sorceress) can harvest. That is your currency... that is your lifeblood... Learn to get them, learn how to use them, learn how to craft and make them better. You take a simple lightning bolt and make it into a lightning ball ... you can take that and make it an area effect explosion trap... then you could add in chain lighting. Seriously, once you learn how the sigil system works... it will click and you will see that this is a really deep crafting game to your design.

The enemies so far have been challenging and every new area surprises me with something new and deadly each time. The graphics are top notch and very well done... down to the back grounds that go on for miles and miles.

The game is mostly linear but having a world open sandbox might be too much initially. Regardless, I love it.

Now, it can get some what overwhelming to learn the sigil system... an Idiot's Guide to Sigils would help as would a Mage Mastery Spellbook (hopefully these will come out in the future).

So far the environments have been beautiful and deadly to traverse... and I just made it to the 3rd area... and can't wait to see more!

I notice the team is very quick to put out fixes/patches and add new items for the game owners... I respect that.

Just to have the ability to create any type of spell you want to use in your arsenal over time... and blast through levels and have fun doing it... mastering the game itself is just as fun!

Boss monsters? Oh yeah... they are tough and they can be tricky! Some thought and uniqueness has been designed with them also... Kudos!

You can even craft new spells and go back in previous trodden areas and test it out (and get loot while you do it)...

Sure it could play like Call of Duty or Skyrim but the main focus is you are a mage... you cast spells and you design your own spells. No inns, no taverns, no swords or bows you can get... no chainmail or leather armor you can don... You are your own weapon... you have a mission... DO IT! :)

After dealing with the disappointment that your "badass" mage has a whopping three spells available to him at any one time, the inability to describe how anything works really keeps you from enjoying the game. Not to mention, your mage is squishy as hell and can get killed by trash mobs if you're not careful. Then the disappointment that you're only walking around in a corridor fighting the same enemies over and over until you get to the boss who's only more difficult because it's a massive bullet sponge. This is Lichdom: Battlemage.

Xaviant started off well with some impressive looking spells in nice looking environments, then shot their own foot where it counts; making the game interesting. Instead, you get a generic revenge story with mystery man who gives you magic. As you run around, someone else drops in and out of the game telling you some useless garbage that's supposed to get you interested about whoever you are supposed to be fighting. It doesn't. My first though about this individual who seems to have much better magic was, "Can't you just teleport into wherever and kill that guy so I don't have to play anymore?"

Instead, we wander through one level to the next following one corridor to the next while the devs refuse to tell us how to play their game. Their instructions go as far as telling us the three buttons we can use while we should be learning about the different spells we create and what each of them work. It would be so easy to get an explanation every time we pick up a item. Nope figure it out for yourself. We have things that do this and that but it isn't until we actually craft them that we realize that cool freeze ray we crafted only has a range of about three feet, or that "Strategic" shield is different than the "Tactical" shield is different from the "Agile" shield and the only way to figure out the differences is to test them out and die.

After enduring the corridor run for a while, you also pick up additional effects such as Fire, ice, lighting, kinesis, etc., but they don't seem to matter much. Fire burns, ice freezes, lightning shocks but it doesn't seem to matter what you use. You would think a "badass" mage wouldn't be so squishy either. Originally, I kept telling the devs the "tutorial" level was way too hard for first timers to figure out. Supposedly they made it easier in a recent patch, took them long enough, but at the cost of getting sigils.

TLDR; Walk around in linear corridors pressing the left mouse, the right mouse, and the two mouse buttons together until you die.

This game is so much fun, love it. The crafting system is challenging but worth the time investment to learn, the power it makes you feel is awesome. Love the improved crafting sytem and guides btw. The story is basic but well done, graphics are awesome, but most of all the spell combos are amazing and super fun. Great job.

Amazing game. The effort and imagination that was put to make this game is outstanding. It is very unique in what you have to do, the gameplay is awesome. I have been playing this for some time now and can easily say that it's an outstanding game, graphics are one of the best, gameplay is crazy, sounds, music background give it atmosphere. what else do you want? perfection? i would say that it's not perfect but then again, nothing is. if you are a gamer and not a wanna be gamer then play this and see if you can hack it.

ladies and germs, i'm old school here and I should know a thing or two.

Good work to the team and I hope you come up with other unique games in the future.

This game was meh... It was really pretty and the effects were cool looking, but honestly I was on the fence when I started. I played as the girl until I got to the first part where you can actually select a new spell line, but after another hour I got bored with Necromancy and decided to try something else, was equally disappointed with Lightening on the male as well. I think it mostly comes from the long charge times on spells in general. I understand for a more powerful boom that it takes a few seconds but omg. Even just quick clicking them instead of charging takes forever. A lot of my friends that played said "it's like a FPS but with magic", uh, yeah no. I don't remember any gun having several seconds to wait after pulling the trigger for it to actually fire something. This was obviously not the only issue I found with the game, but it was enough to make me stop playing after like an hour each time I tried. Playing the game is pretty easy but holy god the crafting system to upgrade spells. I had to just let the auto upgrades do its thing and just look at the results, if I liked the upgrade I used it, if not I waited until I got something else... if you're going to make a crafting system that almost requires the auto-upgrade system to figure it out, why bother even having it? Even the tutorial hints at "hey just use the auto crafting, it's easier". With all that in mind, when it comes down to it, if a friend asked if they should buy this game, I would likely say no. Glad I got this on sale with a 50% of coupon through Loot Crate else I might be pissed. Still a waste @ $12 IMO. Sorry.

This game is boring.

The plot is rudimentary at best. Gameplay is awkward and the controls are incomprehensible.

Instructions and tutoring is minimal so you learn what works early on and repeat it until you are bored.

After 4 or 5 hours of cumbersome gameplay having little or no plot to keep your interest you ask youself, 'why?' and move on to something that makes more sense and is more fun.

A few weeks ago, this was rating 79 on metacritic, today it is 68. The game is beautiful and gets high marks eary on. But as you progress into a game it takes more then pretty pictures to keep you playing. This has nothing behind the graphics so as you progress it just gets confusing, anti-climactic, repetetive and boring. Watch for the numbers to continue to drop on this 'game'. By the end of the year it will be rating in the 50s and the price will be < $20 USD.

It still won't be worth your money.

Gameplay / combat

Lichdom: Battlemage is an action RPG where you control a single character from a first person perspective. You are a badass mage on a personal revenge quest and you've got a wide range of spells to choose from.

You've got traditional fireballs and AoEs as well as grenade like "lobs" and "rays" that are short range constant beams. You don't have any melee weapons but you can block, and if timed correctly, this will trigger a "nova" which damages everything in a radius around you. There's also a very useful dodge move. There is no mana limit or cooldowns so you can cast as frequently as you desire.

Each of these spell "shapes" can be given an element which identifies the basic damage type, but also has unique bonus attributes. For example ice can freeze your enemy, lightning can chain its damage to other nearby enemies, and kinetic can hold an enemy in place. And this is just a small selection - there are several others to choose from. Its kind of like the magic equivalent of Borderlands' guns.

Enemies include Human warriors and mages, undead archers and powerful demons. Many of them have access to the same range of spells as the player, as well as special abilities that allow them to shield allies, summon minions, teleport behind you, slow you, freeze you and more.

Lichdom is approximately 25 hours long and is heavily focused on combat, but with such a wide variety of spells and enemy types, there's a fantastic tactical depth and I honestly never got bored.

Level design is mostly linear, but many of the areas are quite wide so it doesn't feel too restrictive. You have room to approach enemies from different angles and plenty of objects to take cover behind. There aren't any side quests, but there are some hidden areas branching off the main path where you can find challenge rooms - kill multiple waves of enemies to be rewarded with lots of loot in the form of spell crafting components.

Crafting

You gain new spells by crafting them. Each spell requires an element and a shape, and these components are rated from "common" and "rare" to "epic" and "legendary". More powerful components have bonuses to damage, critical chance, casting speed, etc. Sadly I found the crafting system to be very confusing. Whenever I tried to manually create a new spell, it was always weaker than the one I currently had equipped ... even if I was crafting with top tier components. So after a while I just let the game automatically upgrade my spells when a better version was available.

Story

Its not as detailed as most RPGs, and the player doesn't have any control over dialogue, but there are a few interesting characters. I especially liked the interactions between the two heroes, Dragon and Gryphon, and two villains, Hedaro and Hedira. There is some excellent voice acting from the likes of Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect), Troy Baker (Bioshock Infinite), Gina Torres (TV's Firefly) and Jaime Murray (TV's Defiance).

Technical

Lichdom uses Cryengine3 so as you can expect, the graphics for environments and spell effects are gorgeous. However, its also quite demanding in terms of PC spec.

I'm running an i7 2600K at 3.4 Ghz, 8GB ram and a GTX 770 with 4GB Vram - well above the recommended specs listed on the Steam store page - but I can't maintain a constant 60 FPS on maximum settings (very high) at 1080p. The early areas seem fine, but after a few hours I started to encounter fights with lots of enemies which killed my framerate. I hate screen tearing, but with Vsync on I was getting dropped to 30 FPS.

For the last few hours I've dropped everything down to high, and enabled adaptive Vsync in Nvidia control panel. Its still not perfect, but performance has improved, and it still looks pretty good. I'm not saying this as a massive critisism, it hasn't hurt my enjoyment of the game too much, its just really a heads up to expect to have to do some tweaking.

I haven't suffered any crashes or noticed any bugs. Controls are fully rebindable and work great with mouse and keyboard.

Recommendation

If you're a massive RPG fan like me, I recommend buying Lichdom at full price. I don't like using numbers to review games, but lets just say the 69% Metacritic average shown on the store page is too low.
