The first major update for Life Is Feudal: MMO is coming soon and indie developer Bitbox has revealed the upcoming new content that will come with it. The highlights of the update are the unification of game worlds, PvP arenas, clergy, new outposts, slavery and guild rankings.
The game worlds will be united so that players can travel between them, but only once a week for regular players and once every two days for premium subscribers. Global chat will allow players to communicate and trade with everyone regardless of which area they reside in.
Manually gathering resources will no longer be as tiring with the new slave mechanics. Players can place up to four slaves per outpost to speed up productivity and earnings.
DJ2 Entertainment has announced a new set of major changes to the recently released Wild West Online. No later than June 15th, a new patch will be deployed that will bring the removal of “Mcfarlanes vs Steele” type of factions, the return of Sheriffs vs Outlaw as core gameplay, a free trial version and more.
Defined faction PvP was added when Wild West Online launched on Steam on May 10th and now they have chosen to remove the system due to its addition of unnecessary complexities to gameplay mechanics. As a replacement to the new “Mcfarlanes vs Steele” type of faction PvP, Sheriffs vs Outlaw will become the new two main factions in the game.

The combat tweaks involve an increase in healing amounts, an increase in damage output of STR, the removal of mana potions and the reduction of base weapon damages.
If you’ve played an MMORPG, an easily accessible world map via the “M” key may be a feature you take for granted. The latest patch to Legends of Aria takes away that function. Instead, players will have the ability to purchase physical maps of the 5 world areas of Celador in towns and outposts. They will also be able to rename and place waypoints on the physical maps.
