Citadel: Forged With Fire Free Weekend Going on Now

It isn’t quite the weekend yet but that is stopping the Citadel: Forged With Fire free weekend from starting right now. The game officially launches on Friday November 1st on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam, but the developers are offering you the opportunity to try it out for free this weekend on Steam.

Blue Isle Studios also has an extensive roadmap of free content updates for the game and they’ve announced that the first DLC is slated to launch in early 2020. This first DLC will include narrative driven quests, the most widely requested feature from the community, and hours of new gameplay.

Citadel: Forged With Fire is rated T for Teen and unlike so many other games these days you can actually find physical editions of the game in some stores around the world. Or if you prefer, you can just order it on Steam where it has been available in Early Access since mid-2017.

In that time the developers have been posting patch notes and working on developing the game and getting it ready for launch. The most recent update which was released yesterday brought in moving mouths when using VoIP, a new mini-boss, and 8 new server types which you can find listed below.

– PVP – veryfast-reset: 5x exp 5x gather, server reset every 90 days

Citadel: Forged With Fire to Get Reignited Spellcrafting and Progression

The magic-powered sandbox MMO Citadel: Forged With Fire is promising a sweeping series of changes to several systems with the Citadel Reignited update, which will change progression, spellcrafting and more by the beginning of next month.

citadel reignited update

Reignited plans to overhaul the game’s spellcrafting system, introducing new ingredients that let players modify a variety of spells to encourage experimentation. The update will also overhaul and rebalance raids as well as add a raid notifications system; add a new quest system and introduce more quests to the game; introduce farming and cooking; and rebalance gameplay, progression and visuals.

Specifics on how these features work were not included in the announcement, but the game’s test server does have many of the features arriving with Reignited available on the game’s public test server for those who want a little additional open beta in their early access game.

The full Reignited update is due to land in Citadel: Forged With Fire on Friday, August 3rd. More details are expected to come later, but for now there’s a trailer looking to hype things up that can be seen below.

Our Thoughts

While the announcement was pretty slim on specifics on how these rebalances and overhauls will actually pan out, we’re glad to know that pretty integral systems to the game are getting an adjustment and we suspect players of Citadel are looking forward to them too. In any case, we’re looking forward to hearing and learning more as the Reignited update approaches launch.

Questing Arrives to Citadel: Forged with Fire

While playing in a sandbox MMO is a great deal of fun, some people just need a guiding hand to aim them at some PvE encounters. In the latest update to Citadel: Forged with Fire, players can now get that guidance in the form of a new Citadel quest system, offering the all-too-familiar exclamation marked NPCs for both low and high-level players.

citadel quest system

The new quest system introduces quest givers at each of the game’s three starter zones in order to send new arrivals on a variety of adventures, as well as a daily quest system from those same NPCs. If you’re among the higher-tiered players, you’re not out of the “!” loop either, as a quest giver will also be located outside each of the boss shrines.

Naturally, completing quests assumes some rewards are waiting at the end, and Citadel’s questing is no different. Players will be able to collect a variety of crafting resources and large experience boons from regular quest givers, while high-level quest NPCs will be dishing out valuable and relevant rewards.

According to the last post on the game’s Steam page, this is the first iteration of the game’s quest system and will continue to expand in the future.

This latest update to Citadel: Forged with Fire also introduced optimizations to improve performance for structures that house a lot of crafting tables and other functional constructs, visual improvements to Mana Generators and their links to magical structures, and a variety of other smaller improvements. All the details are here.

Our Thoughts

We’re of two minds here; on the one hand, it’s good that a quest system is being put into place in order to help players not feel too overwhelmed, but on the other hand, this could perhaps dilute the overall sandbox purpose a bit. Where do you sit on this matter?

Citadel: Forged with Fire Introduces the Broomstick League

I’m not in the mood to get myself or anyone else sued by J.K. Rowling, so I’m going to not mention Citadel’s upcoming Broomstick League game mode’s resemblance to a certain soccer-like magical broomstick sporting event and just tell you about Citadel’s soccer-like magical broomstick sporting event.

broomstick league

In the Broomstick League, players will be teamed up in two teams of up to five players and whisked away to a special arena for a five minute match. Players must pass a ball to each other and make shots into three different hoops, with the large main net worth one point and the smaller horizontal nets worth two points.

The arrival of the Broomstick League will introduce new armors and broomsticks for players to craft and equip outside of the game mode, while new Net and Ball Pedestal structure items will let players build their very own Broomstick League arenas in the open world using Citadel’s building tools.

This new sporting event that is absolutely not what you think it is so don’t even say it is arriving to Citadel: Forged with Fire on Wednesday, March 7th.

Our Thoughts

Obvious comparisons aside, this definitely seems like the sort of non-combat activity that a sandbox MMO could use, especially since players can put together their own arenas. Can you imagine a player-run season where entire teams of players travel to different stadiums to play Qui–er…I mean…Broomstick League?

Citadel: Forged with Fire Adds a Unicorn

The most fabulous horse ever devised by mortals is coming to sandbox MMO Citadel: Forged with Fire. That’s right, you can now ride a Citadel unicorn mount in the latest update. There’s also a new set of armor too, but let’s be honest with ourselves; it’s all about the unicorn.

citadel unicorn

In addition to the pretty pony and the new Tempered Iron Armor set, the latest update will also allow some previously non-functional worlds to come back online. There are also a number of small fixes to several spells and structures, some minor UI tweaks, and a few other optimizations added in this latest patch.

But, again, unicorn mount. Look at it. Look at it.

The devs of Citadel will be hosting a livestream today at 4pm EDT where the new Marble Set will be on display, along with some castle building and other in-development features. That can be seen on the game’s official Twitch channel. You can also peruse the update’s patch notes on the Citadel: Forged with Fire Steam page.

In the meantime, let’s look at the unicorn together in the video below, shall we?

Our Thoughts

Look at my horse. My horse is amazing.
