Green Man Gaming and Small Impact games have announced the release of the latest update for their medieval multiplayer title, The Black Death. The Relics update introduces legendary items to hunt down and more. A new trailer has been released showing how the hunt for these artifacts may not be as easy a task as it sounds. Watch this below…
The relics are unique and powerful items forged by a legendary blacksmith long ago and lost throughout the kingdom of Mercia. These items will be limited to one per server and will placed in a random location. Players will be prompted when a relic is nearby, even if it is being carried by another player. This gives everyone the chance to own the legendary item ….. at least for a short while.
As well as Relics, the update also includes new areas added to the game that are filled with bandits, raiders and the Plague. These areas will be the toughest challenges for the game but will provide some very good loot.
This latest update also introduces a new combat system which addresses a lot of player feedback. As a result, weapon swings are more accurate and new animations included to make the action more immersive.
“Since launch, we have continually experimented with our combat system. For the ‘Relics’ update, we overhauled combat from scratch. Not only does this improve the player experience, it serves as a foundation for additional improvements further down the line,” said Peter Harries, Producer at Small Impact.
