Life is Feudal: MMO’s first big patch includes slavery, PvP battle arenas, and improved religion

Didn’t like the idea of slaves in Conan Exiles? Then you probably won’t dig them in Life is Feudal either. The MMO version of the Life is Feudal games is debuting its first big content update soon, and slavery is among the new bits. It works a lot like Conan’s system too.

“No need in wasting your time on gathering resources manually! Save your time and energy by taking advantage of the new slave mechanic. Players can place up to four slaves per outpost, each additional slave speeding up productivity and earning even more production. There are a couple of ways one can get slaves in Life is Feudal. You can acquire them by controlling the slave outpost in a Red World, buying from other players, or enslaving knocked out players! This feature works only in Red worlds. Now you can make the best of your conquered foes!”

There’s quite a bit more to the patch, including a new PvP battle arena, new religious ranks that allow players to take on the power of the gods, new outpost building features, and a new guild rank system, plus improved music and map heraldry. Notably, the walls between the game worlds will come down, allowing players to move between them and communicate with people in safe or danger zones.

Lets make gaming great again. You can now have slaves. I remember a time when having something like this in a game was considered a bad thing. But not today in 2018. Really freaking disgusting. Gaming is turning to crap.

You don’t actually own a slave, it’s a lose concept of acquiring an item when you click enslave on a defeated player which then can be used to acquire resources faster.

So slavery is where you draw the line but not murder?
Hypocritical as ever

Games follow the demands of gamers. We are to blame. We keep buying lootboxes, we keep downloading nudity mods, we keep slaying innocent NPCs around towns for the sake of… just killing NPCs.

Whether games need to follow each and every demand is a different matter…

enslaving knocked out players!

Wait. WHAT?!

Memory may fail me, but isn’t this the game where a level 8 or something toon called Hitler went around killing people and making a gang? And then they put…THIS?!

Oh for fuck’s sake.

You don’t actually enslave players per se. You just click “enslave” and you get an item called ‘slave’ that helps with resources for some time. There’s no gameplay impact for the defeated player.

Also, wtf are you talking about with that toon thing and what does it have to do with anything?

Funny how no one talks about asian MMOs with actual slavery rather than a temporary buff to a slave owner

I like how we’ve gone from slavery as something wrong to be fought, to a game mechanic to be foisted upon others. What wonderful times.

And you can’t even say that this is faithful to the source material, like it is in Conan Exiles.

Besides, for a medieval-style game, you could likely just call them serfs while keeping all the gameplay mechanics the same.

“Gaming is apolitical”

Sure, and i can shoot pigs out of my ass too.

Serfs are actual players in this game, so no, it wouldn’t be equivalent.

There were slaves in medieval times, and I don’t see how having a loose concept of immaterial slaves is more revolting than decapitation or mass killing.

Reader

Really, so it’s ok to decapitate people and burn the living hell of entire cities, but when you have a loose concept of immaterial slaves that’s going too far? Lol.

Doesn’t stop people from owning slaves in the current year so why would it stop people in the game world?
