Life is Feudal: MMO’s latest update unveils the realm of Godenland, introduces new challenges

    
6

Gritty medieval sandbox Life is Feudal has introduced its massive new 0.2.0 update, adding a whole new map to explore, a heavily revamped progression system, and new PvE and PvP content. The new map, Godenland, is nearly three times the size of the original map with “a wider variety of various landscape features.” Here, players can discover new rare resources and interact with the enigmatic natives of the land, whose villages can be raided in search of resources and treasure.

The update also overhauled the game’s progression systems, providing players with a bit more flexibility to pursue the activities that appeal to them without having to sacrifice progression in other areas. Now, all experience is consolidated into one of three pools: crafting, combat, and mining. Players can use the experience accrued in these pools to raise the level of any skill that falls within that pool’s purview. And on top of that, there’s now offline progression as well, allowing players to select a skill to continue improving even when they’re offline — as long as they have enough experience stored in the associated pool, that is.

In addition to the many new features and system overhauls, the update also brings with it an array of one-time challenges for players to complete as a guild, as a team, or solo. These challenges include being the first guild to upgrade its guild monument to tier four, being the first guild to cpature a free province, being the first player to visit all the regions of Godenland, and so on. To participate in these server-first challenges, players must take screenshots proving the challenge’s completion and submit them to the devs for verification. The first players and/or guilds to complete these challenges will receive as-yet-undisclosed rewards for their triumphs.

To get the full details on the new Godenland map and all the content that comes with it, be sure to check out the official update page on the game’s website.

This is the closest the game gets to an official relaunch, considering ALOT of the core mechanics have been reworked. I really like the changes they have made to the game. Putting most of the population on one massive persistent world like EVE, with your fiefs aka assets being vulnerable during certain windows that you choose based on your guilds timezone.

How often your assets are vulnerable depends on how big and affluent your guild is. A small guild might only be vulnerable a couple hours every weekend during their primary selected timezone, while a massive zerg guild that holds many lands will have several hours of vulnerability during weekday and weekend across multiple timezones.

There is a roleplay server, that is going to be rebranded as a super roleplay ultra carebear server, but right now its pop is almost non exsistant as almost everyone has moved to godenland.

Offline skill progression? like EVE in a way?

That’s the idea. I think the idea is to incentivize playing the game, rather than just finding the best way to afk grind, which is what the game used to be.

They have, from my understanding, done a lot more than that toward that end. Currently fishing is the only long term afk-able activity that gives XP (and supposedly that will be changed at some point).

I do find it interesting that the game is a lot more friendly to those who want to live peacefully as well (although the peaceful areas there require either a horde of alts to do much, or working with neighbors).

Yes its inspired by eve and he even mentions it was inspired by a certain space sim mmo in one of the dev blogs. The new judgement hour vulnerability mechanic was also clearly inspired by the vulnerability windows for EVE citadels. Modified to meet the needs of LIF.

Yes I can see that. I think EVE does have some very nice ideas in general other sandboxes could “steal”. Of course they had their misses too but a lot of good features too
