Land of Britain vows to fashion a completely dynamic game world

Stack this on top of grand promises made in MMO history: The upcoming tri-faction Land of Britain is going to attempt to pull off a fully dynamic game world where both players and mobs can change the landscape.

According to a studio press release, the game will be defined by a world that “constantly changes due to events” including weather, player decisions, and enemy creation actions. Mobs will scale according to player levels and have an artificial intelligence that impacts their surroundings.

Land of Britain devs explain levels, discuss balance, and use the word concatenated in a sentence

If you’re curious about the mechanics behind the Unreal-powered fantasy MMO Land of Britain, look no further than the game’s latest website post that covers levels, styles, and the balance system.

Level 1 through 24 of the upcoming title allow players to learn the game mechanics without having to worry much about character development choices, whereas levels 25 to 50 will see the player evolving styles that he’s already learned. From level 21 to 50, players will earn one balance point per level, which may be distributed among four available balance branches: attack, defense, counterattack, and utilities.

Potato Killer Studios promises to delve further into the balance mechanics in an upcoming dev diary.

Land of Britain creates card game to fund the MMO

Land of Britain may be a long way off from launch, but that hasn’t stopped Potato Killer Studios for developing a spin-off online card game called Fangold matching the game’s world.

Fangold will allow players to build a deck of cards based on heroes and skills in the game. As with Hearthstone, new cards can be bought with real money, in-game currency, or crafted from the remnants of unwanted cards. The card game will feature a variety of modes such as PvE, drafts, and questing.

In fact, the studio says that the card game will not only serve as a good introduction to the MMO but be a source of revenue to fund the development of Land of Britain. Potato Killer says that a website and Kickstarter campaign for Fangold will be coming soon.

Land of Britain takes you through a leprechaun dungeon

Following its conversion to the Unreal Engine 4, Land of Britain is champing at the bit to show off its fantastic new visuals. To wit, Potato Killer has released a new video that takes players on a quick tour of its moody Fen Dhathach dungeon, a place that allegedly contains wondrous leprechaun treasures and a sinister new presence. If the instance has actual leprechauns to go with its treasure, we’re prepared to dub this the best dungeon of all time.

Potato Killer says that it’s preparing a huge news announcement about “an ambitious and exciting idea” that’s coming soon. While you wait on that, check out the video after the break and let us know what you think!

Land of Britain shows off new UE4 screenshots

Wondering why the Land of Britain developers have gone quiet? Probably not, as we hadn’t covered the title before today. Regardless, we have an answer to that question, as the game has apparently been swapping to Unreal Engine 4 and has a few new screenshots for fans to look at. They’re all in the gallery, naturally.

The conversion to a new engine has forced the developers to postpone their crowdfunding push, but when that push finally goes live, it’s going to look a fair bit nicer. If you’re unfamiliar with the game – which is understandable, as explained above – know that it promises to be a fantasy MMORPG set in a mythical land of Britain with a war between three kingdoms and an in-depth crafting system. Seems like a solid premise.
