Mon, 24 January 2022

Hey Everyone,

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm this winter. We are back with another major update as we continue with our quest to polish and improve every area of the game in the coming months.

Today`s update was long time in the making and includes major updates to most of the large towns seen in game. This includes full redesign of the inner town walls to full stone. We also worked on campaign map level design, repositioning some towns and locations, updating town names to better match history and geography of 14th century Europe.

We will continue with another large update in early February. More great things are coming.

With that said, lets take a look at what this 29th update
includes

    Improved the look of desert hamlets during winter
    Gate Crank is larger and more visible for all types of gatehouses
    Fixed Gerona and Pamplonas world map positioning by renaming them to Lourdes and Perpignan - other important centers of the time period with same location
    World Map town changes - renamed Maidstone to Battlesbridge in the Kingdom of England
    Update Toledo and Madrid historical and geographical inaccuracies on the world map
    Major town renaming for towns in Spanish to be historically and geographically accurate
    Made Barcelona town start larger on the world map in new campaigns as level 3 hamlet instead of level 1

New Update Incoming
Thu, 24 March 2022



Hey Everyone,

Hope everyone is well during these difficult times. Apologies for the lack of updates over the past two months, and I`m happy to say that I`m back to prioritizing KW4 updates, and just finishing work on the big update 1.17 that can be expected early next week.

As part of this update I`ve focused on fixing one of the major complaints we had - misusing personal time in ways to accumulate too many resources that greatly unbalances the game when used well. In addition there are some good improvement son AI and a lot of balancing work for both the RTS and campaign modes. All in all game will be a lot more challenging and interesting to play after this update. In addition there are a lot of fixes and smaller updates across the board as well.

Once again thanks for your continuous support, and sorry for the delay in the update schedule. Can`t wait to share this update with

New Update Incoming
Mon, 28 March 2022



Hey Everyone,

Hope everyone is well during these turbulent times. Sorry for the delay in our update schedule for the past two months, but I`m happy to say that I`m back to work on more MKW content and updates. Work is nearly done on the major anniversary 30th update, and we are expecting it sometime next week.

The new update includes some visual improvements as we reformat all the interface art to look better and sharper, as well as reworking the game light to be a lot more realistic and to effect gameplay less (like very dark rainy nights). World Map AI and difficulty is getting a lot of work and balancing. In addition update includes dozens of fixes and balancing for various smaller issues and remaining bugs. And finally including another big update streamlining the tutorial to make new players feel better with the game, with easier to get started.

Once again thanks for your continuous support, and sorry for the delay in the update schedule. Can`t wait to share this update with you next week, and more to come this spring!

Update 31 - Sieges, Stats and Improvements
Tue, 21 June 2022

Hey Everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying warm summer days, and still has time for a bit of gaming now and then.

We have another solid update today that focuses on improving various aspects of siege gameplay, as well as re-balances unit stats and various combat mechanics; a lot of other improvements across the board. Siege combat is now more fluid and faster, as before it would take AI or even players a very long time to get past defenses, especially for larger towns with several levels of walls. We also got around to polish up some of the localization correcting quite of a text errors. And finally we looked to address a couple of rare issues that could stop your armies from responding correctly.

You can expect the 32nd update towards end of the month - and that will be a big one!

And now lets take a look at what this 31st update
brings:

Changes and Additions

    Some main menu improvements making it work better on different resolutions
    The Change Language button is now very well visible in the main menu and has a title - too many players couldn`t find it before
    Rebalanced siege weapons to be stronger, a bit faster and more accurate
    Update stats on walls, building and other defensive structures
    AI is now somewhat like 20%-30% more effective and faster with breaching walls
    Reworked range units shooting at moving targets, it`s a lot more efficient now
    Same time made ranged unit be less effective at hitting charging cavalry
    Adjust prices of some diplomatic actions
    Fixed one rare bug game breaking issue where player could loose control of some battalions
    Fixed another rare bug where interface would become completely unusable and game had to be restarted
    Some more work on the camera being effected by some hamlet levels with high mountains around
    Fixed several locations on the world map
    Added more trees, rocks and other props to the world map
    Tried to fix some of the late game achievements, but this might need a bit more work
    Corrected dozens of spelling and other errors in various tooltips, unit descriptions e.t.c
    Improved localization in majority of supported languages (correcting spelling, grammar, and some incorrect lines)
    Rebalanced piked units to be a bit better in melee, and even stronger vs cavalry
    Rebalanced basic units like peasants, hunters and militia to be a bit stronger to stop early game raids
    Fixed couple of issues with catapults projectiles flying all over the place

Royal Blood/King Maker DLC page is coming soon.
Thu, 28 July 2022



Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to share some exciting news. With work nearly complete on this new amazing DLC for Medieval Kingdom Wars - we are getting ready to show it off. You can expect a full announcement once the Steam page for it is approved. It will include all the details and previews - expecting this towards the weekend.

This gameplay transforming DLC changes how you experience and play the game. This DLC comes with tons of new features effecting both early and late game, new content, new music and just one hell of a good time. Everything has been reworked from loading screens, main menu, campaign creator, all the way to mid and late game features.

The best thing - with the work nearly complete we are releasing this DLC before the summer`s over. Will be running a lot of promos as we launch this DLC, so expect to see quite a bit of new life in both the original game, and these playing with the DLC.

Just waiting for Steam approval as we launch the steam page and we will finally be ready to properly announce this DLC to you later this week.

Can`t wait to share all the details with you later this week, but I think you can guess some of the features this DLC will bring from the title Royal Blood, (working name of the project was The King Maker)

Royal Blood DLC launching this week!
Tue, 16 August 2022



Hey Everyone,

We are glad to announce that Royal Blood DLC will be released later this week. This DLC allows you to experience the game from a different point of view, starting the game with a King with all new abilities and scenarios to explore.


Medieval Kingdom Wars - Royal Blood



https://store.steampowered.com/app/2110750/Medieval_Kingdom_Wars__Royal_Blood/


This is our first time releasing a DLC for Medieval Kingdom Wars, so we wanted to do it right. Royal Blood doesn`t just add a few new features, but brings a total makeover to MKW. From brand new main menu, loading screen and visual updates, to new music and gameplay features. But most importantly - the gameplay and experience is drastically different.

According to our stats only 3% of all MKW players have gotten to experience the game as a King, and even then the late game options when playing as a King were quite limited, and by then usually players have conquered half the world.

Royal Blood allows players to start the game as a King, and instead of focusing on building up each and every town, and slowly grinding to the top; Players now gets to experience MKW on a whole new level. From the get go you will need to command your Lords, and work together with them to protect your territory and wage war against other kingdoms. Diplomacy with all expanded options available to the King also takes critical importance - as trade and alliances become key to overcoming other Kingdoms.

In some campaigns you will only fight the most important battles, spending majority of your time controlling your Kingdom and lords on the world map.

And just as with all our previous releases you can expect free updates that will add even more content to this DLC in the coming months.

There will also be a big loyalty & launch discount combination - more details on this on launch day, but we`ll be sure to take care of community that always supported us, and not follow practices of other companies like doubling the DLC prices.

As always - thanks for all your support, and can`t wait to share this DLC with you - expecting it to be released in a couple of days.
