Erectus stiffens up its competition with the launch of its endgame

While everyone would like to be the great shaft at the heart of progress in Erectus the Game, the stiff backbone around which all other play revolves, only one person can truly be the Erectus King. This is the endgame, and it’s just been thrust into the spotlight with the game’s most recent update, when the Erectus King NPC begins his ritual and surrounds the land with erupting volcanoes. This phase of the endgame takes two weeks, and players must wrestle the king down before his explosive ritual can reach its climax.

Assuming the king is defeated, players will then have to hold and control the king for a time while other players try to get their own hands on the surging lord. Success, of course, means that a new king has risen, so players will have to work hard to achieve a satisfying conclusion. Remember, it doesn’t matter how strong your empire is if you can’t successfully maintain a bid for the Erectus King.

I guess this will be a hard community to be part of.

I mean, competition? That clearly will be a community full of dicks.

As someone who is known for using way too many puns, I was excited by Eliot’s update but after 30+ years in the industry, the excitement didn’t last very long.

Well done Eliot!

It’s hard to keep up the excitement when you’re older.

If you want to give it a shoot make sure to grab an Erectus key.

Will I need both hands to grab it?

Just remember kids, before you penetrate the defenses of your opponent, always get a Blessing of Protection put on you. Don’t want to be getting a Seed of Corruption on you because that thing’s a pita to cleanse.

Ugh. I was just sprayed by someone else’s Seed of Corruption. I hate griefers.

LOLOL. Thanks Eliot and MOP. I needed that laugh today. Doesn’t sound like my kind of game at all, but articles about it should be amusing at least. Assuming that others are able to rise to the occasion and reach the same heights as this one.
