The core of the Gloria Victis team is hard at work making sure all the "i"s are dotted and "t"s are crossed with regard to combat. Polish and testing are central to the work the majority of the team has been focused on lately. Those not involved in that portion of the game have been busy producing new content that will include a new playable nation, the nomadic Azebs.
9 months ago Gloria Victis came to Steam Early Access. Over these 9 months we were able to deploy 50 regular updates and likely 3 times more smaller fixes! It wasn't easy to maintain such high momentum all the time, especially being a small independent studio, but continuous support of our awesome Community keeps giving us a power boost. Let's take a look at the progress done over last 9 months of Gloria Victis development.
