What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

There are a number of reasons why we felt Early Access was the right path for us. Starting out, we were just a small team of avid gamers, working out of a tiny apartment and just barely scraping by. In order to create a game that truly encapsulated feudal life, while also offering an open, freeform and quality experience worth coming back for, we knew we’d have to invest all of our time and resources to accomplish this. Without Early Access, this would not have been possible.

Furthermore, the community feedback has been definitive in helping shape the Life is Feudal world. We wanted to continue to have this relationship with the players. Early Access gives us the ability to collect and integrate player opinions and feedback into the game to help deliver the best experience possible in Life is Feudal: MMO.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Life is Feudal: MMO will launch approximately 12 months after the release into Early Access.

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

The full version of Life is Feudal: MMO will be feature complete. We plan to implement ships and basic naval warfare, advanced AI and hostile NPC encounters. We are continuing to add, finish and polish the siege mechanics, along with all of the many others already included within the game. We are adding more siege equipment, siege engines and a number of other secondary features that the community will choose by voting for their favorites. Along with these new features, players can expect a more polished and smooth gameplay experience in the full version of the game.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Life is Feudal: MMO enables you, along with thousands of other players, to dive into a living, breathing - and ever-evolving - world. Begin your journey by stepping into an enormous 21x21km, fully realized world, complete with naturalistic weather, day-night cycles, and changing seasons. Explore a vast world; choose a suitable location for your humble home, walled city or strapping fort. Level and terraform to perfect the area before getting to work. Meet new friends and forge alliances with neighbors — imagine the possibilities with a team of people.
Some polishing is still ongoing and you can expect bugs here and there, but from a feature perspective, we believe we have an almost complete game. The features that we plan to implement for the full release can be considered as secondary in relation to the core gameplay that is already present in game.

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

We do not plan significant price changes during the Early Access. You can expect the price increase after the EA.

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

The feedback from our players is exceptionally important to us, which is why we want to involve them as much as possible. To do so, we have consistently provided weekly developer news updates and have regularly asked for player feedback on key issues and game mechanics throughout the development process. We will continue to include the community this way as we move into Early Access. Players can also have their voices heard by submitting, voting for, and discussing ideas on our official forum.

(Dev News #134) Tis the Season for Optimization



Hey, feudalists!

This week we focused on optimizing the game using the valuable performance data that we’ve gathered during our series of PvP stress-test events, thanks to all of you who participated! We discovered that our current performance bottleneck is in some of our network protocols and the amount of data we transmit during gameplay.

So in this week’s patch, we have implemented seven (7) different network protocol optimizations that should significantly boost the performance and smoothness of gameplay during massive open world PvP engagement. We had another stress test event yesterday in order to check if these optimizations were helpful or not, so now we are analyzing data received yesterday, in order to find what worked well, what we missed and what needs work. Thanks to all the participants!

We have also tweaked stamina use a bit in this patch. A lot of you have been asking about this, and we are happy to hear your feedback, so hit us up and let us know if you liked it. In case you missed our patch notes, you can check them out here.

Here are the poll results of the latest Avalon poll:



Thanks to everyone who voted, we will take the results into consideration!

The Winter holidays are right around the corner, and while you’re placing the finishing touches on the tree, wrestling with wrapping paper and guzzling mulled wine, we’re working super hard on the new features - not that we’re jealous or anything! Bobik and Amtech, our Lead Environmental and Level Artist (who’s also working with Alexander Maznev (missing from photo) on a super secret project!), are still smiling, though.



Happy weekend, everyone!

O - for Optimizations (0.13.35.1)

Thanks to you - our players and the series of recent open world PvP stress tests we’ve gathered a lot of valuable performance data. It has showed us that our current performance bottleneck is in some of our network protocols and the amount of data we transmit during gameplay.

Thus in the current patch, we have implemented seven(7) different network protocol optimizations that should significantly boost the performance and smoothness of gameplay during massive open world PvP engagements where the amount of players and horses in the same area can count into hundreds of players. We are keeping our fingers crossed for the upcoming stress test!

It is important to mention that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you stay tuned for the next 2 weekly Devblog updates for some important hints and news about upcoming information and the future of LiF:MMO.

Patch Notes (ver. 0.13.35.1):

New Features and Tweaks:
  • Abilities that drain stamina will consume it instantly (and it will regen during the ability execution)
  • The highly detailed landscape setting is now turned off by default in all setting presets

Bug Fixes and Optimizations:
  • Seven(7) different network protocol related optimizations that should significantly lower amount of the network load both on the servers and clients increasing heavy load performance significantly
  • Fixed server crash related to the player’s position saving

About This Game

Life is Feudal: MMO enables you, along with thousands of other players, to dive into a living, breathing - and ever-evolving - world. You can create and influence the history in the land of Abella and have those events ripple through eternity.



Begin your journey by stepping into an enormous 21x21km, fully realized world, complete with naturalistic weather, day-night cycles, and changing seasons. Various areas produce differing amounts of region-specific resources, while the weather alternates throughout the land, and can play a vital role in successful crop growth and availability of natural resources. Each region can offer unique advantages and favorable conditions for brave adventurers.



Explore a vast world; choose a suitable location for your humble home, walled city or strapping fort. Level and terraform to perfect the area before getting to work. Set out to meet new friends and forge alliances with neighbors — imagine the possibilities with a team of people. Excluding the starting city, everything will be built by you - the players, as you cooperate to build majestic kingdoms and thriving communities.



Kingdoms will rise and kingdoms will fall. The pen can be mightier than the sword if wielded properly. Guild holdings can turn into towns; towns into cities and cities into kingdoms, stretching across the land. Do you have what it takes to form coalitions and alliances to defend your lands and rule over Abella?



When diplomacy fails, it is time to reach for the sword. During this era, there was always that bright, shining light of peace and prosperity, but, alas, civilizations were usually mired in the dark, brutal and often violent reality of medieval life. Take up arms against your foes, utilizing the non-target, physics-based combat system. With realistic player damage you can create deadly combos to deliver bleeding wounds and fractured bones, and in the end... conquer the battlefield.



Establish yourself as an entrepreneur; watch your wealth and influence grow as you build an empire with a completely realistic economy. Barter for goods with others through player-built trading posts across the world. Set up trade routes and recruit competent guards to escort you and your caravans, offering protection from raiders and brigands on your journey.

Engage in fun minigames to earn high score results, which you can use in-game to improve mass production actions to maximize the quality of your crafted items results and the speed in which you complete them. If you suck at these minigames (or if they’re just not quite your thing), never fear, you can get your friends involved by simply generating a code on your account to share - you will be able to use these results in your crafting!

Carve out your legacy; be a part of the history of Life is Feudal: MMO.
