The Gloria Victis team has sent word that a new update, the one that will move the game into alpha, is being deployed today that will see several significant changes incoming. Players can look forward to an overhauled inventory, guilds, NPC shops, buff improvements, performance enhancements, new locations and NPC enemies to name a few.
The buffs system also has been redesigned, so now players can use dozens of meals, beverages and potions to earn helpful effects. Buffs for conquering and controlling the locations have been implemented as well, giving an additional reward for domination in the war of nations and greatly increasing the meaning of the territory control system. The latter received numerous improvements as well, such as implementation of the fortifications repair mechanics or a reworked upgrades window.
