                                          I expect you're here
                                  to find adventure, not asylum."

                                                        7th. Century British Isles is going live!



The final stages of testing multiplayer has begun.
And so before long we invite you to grab your war-gear, raise your shields and join us on the field of glory.
There is blood to be shed and stories to tell... stories of stouthearted men and their deeds.



"...in the morning when the daylight
shone, the mead hall was stained
in gore, the hall wet with
the blood of battle. And I had
a few less loyal men.
Sit now and feast,
glory of warriors,
and speak your thoughts
as your heart tells you."

I can't believe it, this has epic written all over it.

Will it be a battle server, or Persistent World type MMO gameplay?

It will be classic battle server, similar to native but with some new features and items.

Beowulf Poem  :grin:

Doy Fe, Dun Tauro Scene is big and awseome. We were testing yesterday and I am  :shock: yet.

I think that is ideal scene for 150 attack. and 75 def.... or more, maybe we should add some bots for do more impresive assault.

Notice I have made more multiplayer scenes than just Dun Taruo.
So far all based on single player scenes that are edited. But let's keep them as surprise.
The plan is to replace all native multiplayer scenes.

It's a fairly new, more 'free' translation of Beowulf. So the language is closer to today's English.

We want do a multiplayer addon, but players can do events or they wish.

We want do Dun Tauro assault soon for test and enjoy.

Will all the faction be there or will be them joined up in one?

EDIT: Like all the saxons in one faction, all the britons in one faction etc
 

Idibil

Each kingdom is a faction (total = 31 factions)

For Dun Tauro Siege idea is that defend team are pictish and attack team Bernaccians.
But you will have news soon, when Adorno and me finish last testing.

When will this add-on be available?  I'm excited to play multiplayer Brytenwalda.  Will it require Battle Time and WSE?

No, you can play it with normal warband.
However, We will add WSE option too.

We hope give a release date next week.

You should try to make a MP only download, so people who only likes MP don't have to download things that only SP uses
