What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Of Kings and Men implements many experimental ideas not seen before. Community feedback is crucial to designing, testing and sometimes even discarding those elements. The development team works closely with the community to figure out issues early and to adjust plans accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Of Kings and Men is planned to release the final version and leave Early Access after 1.5 to 2 years”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • The combat system will be extended to feature Horses, Throwing weapons, as well as Siege Engines.
  • Players will be able to design their own weapons by combining different parts.
  • The game will hold tournaments and competitions with ranking systems
  • Players will work together to capture castles, establish diplomatic relations to other player factions, implement a feudal hierarchy , running a player-driven economy, upgrade fiefs, and fight as mercenaries for the different factions.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At Early Access, the game contains the combat system and various game modes for it, as well as an early implementation of the war system called Raid Mode; which will allow players to recruit armies, attack villages and castles, and fight as a soldier or mercenary within those battles.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the game will increase in price after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“To participate in the development process and to brainstorm with the team, the forum is the first stop. Players and developers are having healthy discussions there about features that are going to be implemented and have already been implemented. Also, direct communication and discussion with the developers happens regularly on the games Discord channel.”

Exciting Nightly Testing

We started testing De Re Militari on our nightly this week, and would appreciate all the feedback and (occasional) bug reports if you would like to test it with us!



There are still some minor things that will be added in the next nightly update like an upkeep for clans and visual improvements, but the first version of the mode is mostly finished, and will be available in live next week.


Joining nightly is quite simple:

1.Go to your Steam library and right-click Of Kings And Men.
2.Select Properties and open Betas tab.
3.Enter the code: ofkingsandmennightly
4.Click Check Code and select nightly instead of None.


In order to create a new Stronghold for your clan and start a conquest, you would need at least 8 members, but there are many established clans with some territory, so feel free to join them for testing!

About This Game



Notes On Early Access:

Of Kings And Men is coming to Steam's Early Access program. This means the game is still in active development, and will be subject to change.

Persistent Medieval War

Air thick with the stench of death. Bleeding hands fumbling over heavy, rusted swords. The sharp swish of an arrow as it pierces the air. The cry of a dying warrior, his scarred arms flailing as he crashes down against the dirt. He cries for help, but it is muffled by the sound of combat. No one can save him.

This is life now in medieval Europe. War has arrived.

Join the ranks. Don’t back down. Slaughter, or be slaughtered.

Key Features



  • FIGHT ALONGSIDE LOYAL COMRADES

Our featured Strategic Map allows you to experience a real-time medieval war campaign set in a persistent world. Now you can gather your clan, plan your attack, and brace yourself against the enemy.

Join a team and work your way up the ranks as you battle it out with up to 150 other players in a fight. Learn the ropes, and someday you might even try your hand at leading your own army...

  • GET INVOLVED IN DYNAMIC COMBAT AGAINST OTHER PLAYERS

    Experience a realistic combat system based on the study of historical European martial arts and medieval manuscripts. Fight with a fast-paced, intuitive combat system that will leave your heart pounding.

    Meet and chat with fellow players in our Lobby. Socialize and get to know one another by choosing to play in fun modes, or risk you life by venturing into the wilderness in search of adventure.

  • HONE YOUR SKILLS

    Level up in combat, and choose which stat points to upgrade. Make enemies cower in the face of your strength as they tremble under the ferocity of your sword. Or maybe you're quick and nimble, preferring to snigger at your foes as you pierce them with your arrows from afar. You are in control.

  • UNLOCK REWARDS

    Unlock new gear, from full plate armor to two-handed swords. Create and customize your own unique warrior. Stand out, and make them remember you.


    Draw your sword, and march forth into battle with your head held high. It's time to claim your place as the most powerful lord of the realm.
