Northgard Patch Notes – May 4, 2022

UI

Northgard menus had some inconsistencies regarding the way information and choices were presented depending on the game modes.

This prevented certain things such as, but not limited to: playing in Extreme difficulty on a classic map, playing in co-op with an AI clan in single player mode and being able to search the existing lobbies whilst being in one.

The aim of this version of the UI is to unify the different options and elements of the different game modes, thus adding new game options and providing the player with complementary information about those options.

Multiplayer

Here are the first steps towards, what we hope, will be a fairer system that will distribute players more evenly.

We are now using the full scale of our GP system, which means that you will be able to go from 0 GP to 1000+ GP, and no longer get stuck in your progression after hitting 400GP.

As we have previously stated, this is the first iteration of our new multiplayer & GP system. Improving it further will take time, experimentation, and cooperation.

Military

Previously, strategic choices offered by the military path weren’t all as viable from a competitive point of view.

Shuffle things around and give you the possibility to choose a Military Path, much earlier on in a game, that best suits you, or your clan’s playstyle.

Reduce the cost allowing players to forge more than one weapon.
