Welcome back!

aa3ca8554eda63b76fccde5acebd124c

This latest update includes a host of improvements and features to MORDHAU - starting with duels, we’ve now implemented our first iteration of ranked play, a variety of gameplay improvements, map balancing to Crossroads, quality-of-life improvements, new cosmetics and more!

This update is the first of multiple coming to MORDHAU within the coming weeks; we’ve decided to break up our incoming additions into smaller updates to ensure that we can release new content without excessive delays. Expect iterative patches coming in the very near future that will build upon what’s currently available, and stay tuned for even more content and features soon, such as new maps, modding support, more gameplay adjustments and improvements for weapons, shields and archers, the new Invasion game mode, ranked 3v3 mode and more!

If you’d like to read all the changes for this update, check out our changelog:
https://mordhau.com/forum/topic/19609/patch-09-changelog-30082019/

As said above, we've decided to break up the content and features we’ve been working on for the past few months into smaller, progressive updates that will gradually build upon the base game. This will allow us to release specific things when they are ready, instead of holding up progress until all of these features are complete. We expect to have a much quicker turnaround between our latest update and the next; while we don’t have a specific timeline, a reasonable estimate would be a matter of weeks between these updates.

You can look forward to (in no particular order):

Maps

Feitoria and Castello are nearing completion, and should be ready very soon! To provide a bit of insight, these two maps are in different stages of completion, with Feitoria being closer to a release. Expect these maps to come along with other updates, but it’s likely that they will come in different patches.

Invasion

The Invasion game mode is an asymmetrical attack-defend mode with a heavier emphasis on teamwork, objective interaction and a more focused experience than what you’d find in Frontline. Progress has been great on this mode, and at the moment we’re currently play-testing it on Camp, so we can further refine the mode before adding it to other maps. We plan on polishing this up in the coming weeks, and implementing the mode on all maps that currently have Frontline enabled.

Ranked

With our latest update, we’ve launched 1v1 duels in a “beta” state to further refine our matchmaking, Elo system and to gauge interest in the game mode. Once we’re satisfied with the state of duels, we’ll be expanding this mode to include ranked 3v3’s as well. It’s important that we ensure duels play well first, and make sure that the gameplay and “meta” is in a good state before opening up the team variant.

Mod Support

While making a Software Development Kit (SDK/mod tools) is a big priority for us, it’s also a major undertaking that will require quite a lot of development resources, and ultimately quite a bit of time as well. To help support our wonderful modding scene, we’re currently in the process of implementing mod auto-download features - server owners can simply select what mods they want, and players only need to join the server to download these mods!

These are just the main areas we’re currently addressing, but more progress will be coming in the future as well. Thank you for your patience, and we’ll see you on the battlefield!

Patch #04 Changelog: 08/05/2019

With this patch, we are rolling out the gold compensation for our rocky launch. It comes in the form of 10K gold, and you can choose to accept or decline it when you launch the game. We have no way to know who was affected, so it is extended to all current players. This is a one time thing. If you decline it, it's gone. You will be able to claim this compensation until (including) Sunday UTC.

Networking

  • Matchmaking improvements
  • Joining a server will now reserve a slot in advance, fixing the issue of being booted after loading.
    Server owners will have to make sure that the beacon port (15000) is reachable; it can be overridden on the command line with BeaconPort=<port>

Maps & Gamemodes

  • Fixed players being able to get out of bounds on Mountain Peak
  • Fixed some icicles not dropping on Mountain Peak
  • Weapons/projectiles no longer collide with bounds on certain maps

Visuals & Misc.

  • Fixed spectators being kicked for AFK even when moving
  • Fixed fire kills not being tracked
  • Fixed pyromaniac achievement not working
  • Fixed Whack A Mole achievement
  • Fixed couched head kills not being tracked
  • Potential fix for a rare(?) crash (could also crash the server)
  • Added m.ThirdPersonDeathCamera by default it is disabled, added it to settings as well. Does what it says, forces 3p camera on death. Can help for people who get motion sick.

Audio

  • Increased volume of human footsteps and horse galloping, increasing sound awareness
  • Catapult & Ballista firing sounds can now be heard from further away, increasing awareness
  • Fixed horn on camp being too loud at certain times
  • Increased volume of low stamina breathing and made it more even across voice sets, making it easier to notice in fights
  • Lute is now louder

UI

  • Added friend UI marker - can be toggled with H, in the options or m.friendlymarker console command. Has 3 states (friends & party, all teammates and off).
  • Frontline spawn screen now shows friends and party members as orange dots
  • Added “Show Killed By” toggle in the options or m.ShowKilledBy, can be used to turn off the killed by panel
  • Tutorial reward message on main menu now hidden when it is completed

It's been one hell of a ride thus far, and it's only been 7 days. None of us would've expected this reception in our wildest dreams.
As of today MORDHAU has sold just shy of 500.000 copies and we have reached a peak of 60.000 concurrent players yesterday. These are just mindblowing numbers to us, and we still haven't fully realized that MORDHAU is currently among the top played games on Steam.

Unfortunately the launch wasn't as smooth as we had hoped. Server performance was abysmal and reward drops such as Gold and XP, as well as unlocks were not functioning properly. We are still in the process of seting up new servers in regions that need them and as a result the Matchmaking can still be spotty. There's also some other Matchmaking related bugs that prevent parties from joining the same game, or BR lobbies to populate very slowly, but we're on top of that. All things considered, the majority of launch issues have been resolved. As for compensation of the lost Gold and XP. We have not forgotten about it and will be shipping it via the next patch.

Right now we are addressing some of the more frequent and critical issues, like the "Ghost Bug" among others, as well as some map exploits. These past few days had been very hectic for us, but things are starting to somewhat get back in order.

Looking ahead for future updates, we've got a couple new maps in mid-production: Castello and Feitoria. Here's a few impressions on the latter.

On top of that we will start looking into Ranked/Competitive modes, starting with duels. However we cannot give an exact timeframe on when you can expect these updates to be rolled out yet. We are terrible when it comes to estimating things, I'm sure our alpha players can attest to that.

Additionally we will keep adding new armor pieces and weapon skins here and there, as well as some new character customization options.
Goals further down the line would be to release Modding Tools, as a lot of you seem to be very eager to create some custom content.

We've got lots of ideas for improvements to the maps and gamemodes. There's also been some amazing feedback and suggestions coming from you guys. When it comes to balancing and tweaking of mechanics, we are pretty happy with how things are looking right now, but we will start tweaking some things soon.

In closing we'll take this opportunity to give some shout-outs.

Thank you

  • to all the Kickstarter backers and alpha testers. Without your constant feedback, suggestions and nitpicking the game would not be where it is now.
  • to G-Portal/zeuz and their amazing support. You guys were super helpful and assisted us a bunch to keep up with our launch woes.
  • to all community server hosts. You really saved our asses to provide servers for all these players while we were struggling to spin up our own.
  • to our promotional launch re-stream: You guys knocked it out of the park and delivered some sweet first impressions right on the storefront.
  • to all the content creators out there creating videos and streaming. MORDHAU spread like a wildfire, which wouldn't have been possible without you.

What a ride! The day of Mordhau's release is finally here. Our target is to go live today April 29th @ 10 AM PDT. We will be launching with a base price of $29.99 (Steam currency/regional pricing applies!) and a 10% launch discount. Besides the base game, for those who really want to go the extra mile to support us, you'll also be able to purchase the Supporter Pack containing the soundtrack, Medallion (necklace) wearable cosmetic and Mercenary banner. Those who wish to purchase the Steam key to the game on our webshop, will be able to do so here when the game is released, and a lot more money from those sales will go to the developers, as Steam won't take their cut.

Anyone who backed the game at $40 or more (Beta level, which contained the Soundtrack) will receive the Supporter Pack as part of their pledge via Steam key on the account you've registered on our website. So please keep this in mind to avoid purchasing the Supporter Pack twice! Please give us an extra couple of days to supply these Supporter Pack keys to you, as we ran into some delays there.

All backers should have received their rewards by now (except the soundtrack). For some of you, we're still waiting/adding the things that require your input (custom emblems, etc.) so make sure to fill out all forms on our website. If you have not yet received a key please do the following before contacting us. Check your emails, most of you that contact us have already activated your purchase back in 2017, but have not checked your forum account for the Steam keys. The keys have been waiting for you there for some time :) If you are sure you haven't received any activation link, and have never activated your purchase on our forum/website, then get in touch with us via a Kickstarter private message, or send an email to [email protected] from the email you used to purchase, and we will sort you out.

If you would like to purchase just the soundtrack (and it's a good one!) directly from the composers, you can do that here.

Thank you so much for supporting us and making this project possible. It's been an absolute blast to work on, and we hope you'll enjoy playing it!

See you on the battlefield!

We know a bunch of you guys don't receive any Gold or XP rewards. It must sound like a broken record, but we're looking into those issues.
To make up for the inconvenience we will compensate all of you with a little bonus once the problems are ironed out.

The server stability problems somewhat contained and under control. However there's way more people playing than we expected so we're a little short on server space and we're working with our partners to expand with the demand.

Thanks for all your patience so far!

My guess is 6pm -8pm CET

When will user submitted emblems be inclued in the game?
When do we get our gold teeth?
Will i have my Duke title Ingame on Scoreboards, or even ingame at all?

Can we get some more variety on shield customization?
Why is heater shields already worn out in the paint?
Why cant i remove the ugly studs in targe shield?

Why is achievments completed in a match only given to you once the match is finished? Why not instantly? If you complete an achievment then leave server before it's match is finished you won't be rewarded with completion.

i dont accept your guess its to late for me I WANT IT EARLY.

but its literally a fucking monday

do you not have, like, work

Good estimate, probably around 4-8 PM CET, we're aiming for 6 PM CET.

When will user submitted emblems be inclued in the game?

Depends when they were submitted, things that were submitted really late (like 1 months ago) might not be in, rest should be there on release.

When do we get our gold teeth?

We shipped them silently, but it's possible they're not available yet in the current build (will be by release)

Will i have my Duke title Ingame on Scoreboards, or even ingame at all?

You get the Duke in-game badge/banner (the thing people see when you kill them), but it's not spelled out specifically, it's just a way for us to refer them by.

Why is achievments completed in a match only given to you once the match is finished? Why not instantly? If you complete an achievment then leave server before it's match is finished you won't be rewarded with completion.

Fixed next build
