The developers were clearly to make a lamellar armor that could both pass for Mongolian or Eastern European. The determining factor is player intention and other armor combinations, rather than the armor itself. This is a really good way of designing things I think

I don't know what they were trying to do but it clearly doesn't pass for both. The one they showed was mongolian.

I mean jeez, Derfurst, out of all people I thought you would be able to tell the difference between different cultures and ethnicities lol.

August is fast approaching and with it, the alpha testing for Mordhau is getting ever closer. In this month's update, we'll show off some recent additions to the gear, as well as an idea of what to expect from the alpha, and when to expect it.

Check out the album of this update's in-game shots here!

An alternate skin set for the greatsword that is themed on the Scottish claymore has been added. More armor pieces, including gloves, pauldrons, and a set of lamellar armor has made its way into the game. With each added piece, the combinations possible become more and more varied. We have over 150 different pieces of wearable gear in the game already!

The alpha will begin with a focus purely on smaller scale melee combat, with modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Last Team Standing, and will also include expansive character customization. As the alpha goes on over the following months, we will start including more content such as ranged combat, vehicles (including horses) and bigger modes. We decided this was the way to go for several reasons, one being that it focuses players on testing what we feel we can use feedback on. The second being that it allows us to polish up remaining content before it is added for testing.

So, when? We're aiming for end of August, if all goes according to plan. Sometimes delays are inevitable because things can break spectacularly at the last minute, but hopefully that won't be the case. We'll keep you updated should the situation change.

You're going to question my ability to understand culture based on my limited knowledge of the differences between armor worn by Mongolians and Eastern Europeans, who lived next to each other, fought with each other, and culturally and genetically intermixed with each other, hundreds of years ago? You're picking fights over petty reasons. Mongolian and Eastern European armor have very similar aesthetics...

When the Mongol Horde went into Eastern Europe, they mixed with Turkic and Eastern European populations, creating what's known as the "Tatar" people. Their language is a mixture of Mongolian and Turkish with many borrowed words from Russian and Arabic. The aesthetic of the armor made by the Tatars was naturally a blend of Mongolian, Turkish, and Eastern European.

This dude illustrates that point perfectly:

If you say "that armor looks Mongolian," you're most probably thinking of the Golden Horde Tatars, whom you could say were part of the Mongolian Empire, but whom were not strictly Mongols themselves.
