Gloria Victis has updated with a new PvP arena and an attacks power bar. The latter allows players to control the strength of their blows and bowshots. Theoretically this makes battles more tactical, as enemies may opt to get up in your grill or perform some sort of counter while you’re charging your boomstick.
The arena is exactly what it sounds like: a controlled environment for consensual PvP that can handle friendly sparring or tournaments. The latest Gloria Victis changelog also mentions that the developers are starting to implement new passive and active skills.
