Eador. Imperium — Update 2.64.1 (Preview access)

July 27, 2017  |  Eador, Эадор

Hi everyone,

Today we’re launching a new update in the preview access. We always need your feedback, but this time — especially! The update fixes a few bugs and, ideally, improves the game’s stability. However, that’s not the most important about this one — more on this below. The update itself is available in the closed branch on Steam, it’s not officially out yet.

To access the branch, select Eador. Imperium in you Steam library, right click, choose ‘Properties’ and head over to the ‘Betas’ tab. Enter this access code: Y4T2pM245ndC. After that, you’ll be able to choose ‘Public preview’ branch ‘from the drop-down list.

Tournament maps

We’ve added new special scenarios for those who consider themselves the best at Eador. They can be found in “Campaign” -> “Arena”. The player who’ll manage to finish a scenario in the least number of turns will be declared the champion. If this event will prove to be of interest within the community, we’ll be happy to provide some prizes.

While the update is in the preview access, the results on these scenarios won’t be recorded. We just give some time to try them in advance!

Speeding up the progress

Might be a controversial thing for some , but at the same time — very useful for others. We’ve added 4 rituals that greatly speed up the game’s pace. Here’s how it works: in 3-4 turns since the beginning of the game you are able to summon a powerful hero with the army, or get huge riches, or hire good guards. But in this case, your AI enemy gets the very same advantage as you.

Why do all of this? This can be of use for those players who are tired of the early game — building a barn, a library and a smithy time and time again — giving them an opportunity to get into action right away.

If you don’t want to see these “booster” rituals in the game, they can be turned off in the Sandbox setting. Needless to say, these rituals won’t appear in Imperium’s campaign.

We do have some worries about balancing these rituals, so please let us know what you think. Thanks!
