Lords and Villeins receives Early Access update with Military and Criminality today

From Press Release:

Prague, Czech Republic – June 23, 2022 –  1C Entertainment and Honestly Games are pleased to enrich the Early Access content of their medieval city-building dynasty simulator with today’s major Military and Criminality update. On top of adding a new organization type, Demesne, the Military and Criminality update allows players to unlock and manage military regiments, deal with criminals and sickness, have their villagers ride the newly introduced horses, and much more. Discover these and more exciting features with the new trailer and try out the free update now!

Lords and Villeins is always expanding and improving thanks to regular updates and added features that often come straight from the community. The arrival of the Military and Criminality Update spices up the gameplay even further by allowing players to use various new features and options in their gameplay. The King will now request equipped and trained regiments of soldiers along with his other taxes that need to be fulfilled – your soldiers will go to the King’s war, and some might not return. The ruling family gets their own Demesne, a set of zones and professions fully under their control, and they need to take care of their servants. Horses are introduced – nobles ride them for fun, and soldiers train for war.

New builder professions and Guild zones completely reimagine the construction process and allow you to build the best village imaginable. The settlement’s inhabitants will now fall ill and commit crimes, and the players have to deal with the consequences – build a hospital as well as a jail, task the clergy with providing nurses, while you decide whether to imprison, release or execute your prisoners. This new update also brings a lot of other improvements and balance changes – the full patch notes are available here.

Honestly Games’ commitment to support and expand Lords and Villeins during Early Access continues, with even more features coming in the 1.0 release later this year. Be sure to check out the detailed roadmap for the game on Steam for a full rundown of what’s already been added, and what’s coming next.
Lords and Villeins is available today on SteamGOG, Epic Games Store, and other digital stores and supports English and Czech languages. The 1.0 release is scheduled for 2022. For more information, check out the game’s official website, visit the official 1C Entertainment website, like its Facebook page, and follow @1C_Company and @lordsvilleins on Twitter.
