The Gloria Victis team has sent word that the latest update has been applied to the game that brings a number of overhauled mechanics on board as well as some new mechanics as well.
Players can look for a new feature with the ability to fortify buildings with walls, towers, gates. These fortifications can also be upgraded over time to increase a town's or castle's defensive capability.
For players, kicks and feints have been added to combat, both of which can break an enemy's attack. Not to give an unfair advantage to players, NPC-enemies also have the same abilities.
Lastly, the team gave a bit of news about the next patch:
At the moment we are doing the very last polishes before releasing the another massive update – a total overhaul of the inventory and guilds systems. Within the next few days we will start the final tests of those systems; meanwhile we have started working on the survival aspects! When the basics are done, we will be able to implement hunger, alchemy, toxicity and dynamic weather’s influence on the characters – it will greatly increase the immersion, which is crucial in Gloria Victis. This feature is expected to come within the next few weeks!
