If you’re anything like me, you tend to avoid sandbox PvP activities and instead focus down on being a gatherer or crafter to fuel the war effort and make money or reputation off of it. Life is Feudal farming is definitely no different and, as explained in a new video, is the lifeblood of any good player settlement.
Agriculture in Life is Feudal MMO is vital to keeping settlements stocked with provisions, so players are going to want to be nice to their farmers unless they want to see their town shrivel up. The process of farming in Life is Feudal MMO covers a variety of activities, including standard food growing and animal husbandry.
For those who want to plant crops, you’ll need to consider the climate of the area you’re in and determine the fertility of the soil. Location will also be important, as farmland will need to be near your guild’s claim area to prevent it from being vandalized. Once you’ve selected your land, either use a shovel or plow to ready the soil, gather or purchase some seeds, and fertilize your crops.
For those seeking to raise animals, the Animal Lore skillset will be needed, found in the second tier of the Hunting skill branch. Players can start by building a small coop and work their way up to rearing other animals like rams, cows and horses, though they will need the help of a skilled mason to build them the required buildings.
All of the specifics on how to live a farming life can be seen in the video below.
It sounds like the agricultural life in Life is Feudal MMO is one that will require specified focus and determination. Which is just fine, because splitting your time between raising crops and fighting rival factions sounds like way too much work.
Sometimes you want to build a home and live out your life, other times you want to shed some blood, either way there’s a place for you. Life is Feudal MMO launched on Steam Early Access over the weekend, opening up a vicious medieval world for Steam users to join and forge alliances in this dangerous land.
The Early Access launch brings Steam users and Open Beta players together for the first time, with all of the same features, in what Bitbox call a hardcore “living, breathing, and ever-evolving world.” If you want to build a home, forge a career in crafting, join the battle as a knight, or even rule the kingdom, you can do that.
“Life is Feudal: MMO is a realistic social experience, where the best way to thrive in the world is to work together and build a fully functioning society, where everyone has a place, from the most basic hunters and gatherers, to farmers, soldiers and civic leaders.”
Check out the Early Access launch trailer below!
You can pick up an Early Access pack from Steam today.
While reviews on Steam are currently mixed, we’ve been following Life is Feudal for several years now and are excited to see the game as a fleshed out MMO world. We’re sure the Bitbox team are working hard to get things fixed and working well for all of the game’s players, but meanwhile, it’s awesome to see Life is Feudal MMO on Steam!
While lots of MMOs are celebrating the season in a number of ways, a new Life is Feudal holiday video is offering a different approach; a message of the spirit of giving removed from or otherwise not announcing any specific seasonal event.
The video in question is something of a machinima created from within the game and tells the story of the Shoeless Boy, a new arrival to a guild who…well…doesn’t have any shoes. In the spirit of giving, members of the guild band together to create some warm clothes for the new arrival while preparing a holiday feast for all to enjoy.
On the development side of things, the most recent dev blog outlines development focus on fixing problems that have sprung up thanks to the additional players added with the game’s open beta launch. “Approximately 90% of our development team is dedicated to fixing the issues that have been discovered,” reads the post. “We are truly sorry that we were unable to discover and fix these issues before OBT. We thank you for your patience, understanding, support and that you have kept your faith in us!”
You can watch the video below to get you into the spirit of the season.
No, this video isn’t a herald of some sort of holiday goings-on arriving to the game. If anything, it appears to be an illustration of how this game lets its players create their own things. It’s certainly a move that goes against the grain of expectation, but perhaps fans of Life is Feudal: MMO already expected as much.
After a series of apparently successful closed beta tests, it looks like the “medieval life simulator” is ready to expand its horizons. The Life is Feudal MMO open beta is upon us, granting those desperate to live in a horribly uncomfortable time period their opportunity to do so.
Life is Feudal MMO lets players arrive into a sandbox of a historically accurate, fantasy-free world where they’ll have to work together in order to survive and thrive. The game urges cooperation, remarking that every person plays their part in what is being called “a realistic social experience”. “The best way to thrive in the world is to work together and build a fully functioning society,” reads the announcement. “There’s a place for everyone in Life is Feudal: MMO, and a world ready for them to explore!”
Exploring that world will, of course, cost you, as Life is Feudal MMO is a buy-to-play title. Three different packages are on offer, priced at $29.99, $39.99, and $99.99. Specifics on what each package offers is expected to be posted on the game’s website.
Open beta for Life is Feudal MMO kicks off on Friday, November 17th.
All kidding about the setting aside, Life is Feudal MMO should be an engaging enough setting for sandbox fans. That said, stressing to people the importance of working together and cooperating could also lead to things devolving into utter slaughter and chaos. Time will tell to see if there really is a place for everyone in the world of Life is Feudal.
