Life is Feudal patches its survival sandbox variant with (some of) its MMO features

We don’t often see co-developed MMOs and survival sandboxes where the game that’s smaller in scope gets the content second, but that’s exactly how Bitbox is working on Life is Feudal’s MMO and its “Your Own” version. Last week, the studio patched up LIF: Your Own with the big changes already in the MMORPG.

The patch includes a total redesign of the combat skill tree, a balance pass for armor, “optimized and partially rewritten AI system,” parallaxed terrain textures, chopping damage, damage to moveable objects, siege torch weapons, terrain effects on horse travel, tweaks to the diurnal cycle, pavement flattening for structures, and a whole bunch of adjustements to weapons systems. Players say that not everything is in yet (diplomacy and trading posts are still high on the wish list), but it’s something.

Or, you know, you could just go play the MMO, which is currently in beta.

Beta isn’t running at the moment. They have the servers down until the end of the month (or so) working improvements. This patch did, however, work a lot of the optimization into YO so that it isn’t as rough to play, raising fps for people nicely.

There’s certainly still a fair bit for them to do, and a lot of player feedback to consider. :)

Still waiting for that Beta invite.

For those playing, is it still WURM Online-like slow when doing…anything, or have they sped it up?

It’s slow, and very much a social game. If you don’t have a group, you won’t get far… and it will likely become boring without chatter. *At least, that’s how I see it.*

I would be more than happy to play the MMO version, if only I could get into the Beta.

They do a pretty much monthly giveaway that they post on facebook (or have the last few months at least) that you can look for. If you own the YO version, the MMO should hit open beta soft launch in summer-fall time. If you aim for a key, good luck!

I do own the YO version. I have signed up for the Beta, but I guess I don’t watch Facebook enough (or ever). Thanks
