The developers behind Mordhau are under fire for its toxic community as well as its unclear stance regarding a so-called "ethnicity toggle". Triternion has been under the microscope after a recent PC Gamer interview where the issue of adding customization options including non-white skin tones and female playable characters came up. While Triternion has plans to do so, developers have also responded to loud outcry from its playerbase and indicated that it would add a toggle to turn those off.
The latest Mordhau patch has been deployed, the seventh since launch, and it brings with it a number of new content additions. Players will find a new large scale battle map called "Crossroads" that features "horses, mortars, and a dangerous single objective to hold in the center". In addition, the team announced that over a million copies of Mordhau have been sold since launch a month ago.
The Mordhau team is celebrating the game's first week of release with the big news that it has sold over 500,000 copies of the game and that peak concurrency during its first seven days reached 60,000 players. Even in celebration, however, the team acknowledges the difficulty with the game's launch and lists out a number of areas that have proven frustrating for players. The letter wraps up with a look at what is being worked on for both the immediate and longer term.
