The Exiled is back on track after disappointing launch

So how are things going for The Exiled? The developers had been quiet for a while, and that’s rarely the sign of good news. Nor was it entirely good news in this case; the latest update on the state of the game makes it clear that the game’s population wasn’t sustainable on its own, so the team had to take on contract work for a while. But they’re still around, and they’re looking to double down on what makes the game work with the upcoming survival mode.

The idea with survival mode is to really push the parts of The Exiled that are the most fun, when players are in a constrained area and struggling for resources rather than being largely alone. To do this, the survival mode servers will be around for only a narrow window each day and will also have limited lives for all characters, encouraging players to play carefully but play quickly. You’ll also have a thirst meter, which makes the game that much more dangerous in action. Check out the full breakdown for more details on how the new mode will work as the game continues on in Early Access.

The game concept that no one asked for, I guess. Maybe Camelot Unchained will get the balance right, when and if it releases.

Even tho game failed, devs have my symphaties for not giving up and trying to find solution. This thread was pretty interesting to read: http://steamcommunity.com/app/332650/discussions/0/1290691937723458139/

Devs should learn that the “crowd” who demands super hardcore PVP full loot games is actually a very thin layer of the whole MMO community.

There is pretty big demand for this too, but people want a game with well thought out systems, not just an empty world where you gank others.

Game’s dead. 1 person playing an hour ago, 4 players top concurrency in the last 24 hours. I can’t say I don’t understand. I’m a PvPer and didn’t find the game attractive enough to try.

Also, Albion Online releases in a few weeks, and is pretty much a similar game, but larger and with more features, and closer to a “real” MMO.

Open PvP with full looting of the killed, full friendly fire, and game worlds that only last a month at most – who wouldn’t love that?!

Tried it out and really couldn’t get into it.

Ouch, currently three people are playing it. Sounds like it’s dead. :( Number one is the big issue for me. If you don’t have the resources to make it a “real mmorpg” then just don’t do it. Which is how I sort of thought they wanted to be looked at as in the beginning? Or am I miss recalling that? Anyhow interesting read down the list.

This game is a total Gankbox, why you still refuse to put the “Gankbox” tag back on it?
