After six years of slugging it out in early access, medieval PvP MMO Gloria Victis is finally ready to make the jump to full release. Developer Black Eye Games has confirmed that Version 1.0 is on track for release on February 7th and the studio couldn’t be happier.
“Those of us who founded the company had to find extra jobs so we could afford to officially register the company,” recalled the team. “What a rocky start to developing the hardest type of a video game possible! But we managed to create our dream game – an open-world MMORPG that stands out with its non-target melee combat, epic large-scale PVP battles and sieges, and player-driven economy – and now, after years of hard work, we can proudly share the great news.”
Black Eye also confirmed that the existing servers will not be wiped prior to the game’s official launch, but they will be offering both old and new players a chance to start over with a clean slate in its upcoming New Beginning servers.
Hopefully, the game’s full release will bring more attention to the game which has seen an average monthly peak concurrency of just around 600 players. Note that Gloria Victis is a buy-to-play game and will continue to be buy-to-play following its transition to Version 1.0.
