Imagine that you are thrown into a world 20 years after violent and bloody events, which swept across the whole continent as a wave of wars, crusades and unexplained assassinations. Now you become a centre of a conflict between ascendants of the first creators of the world.
Choose your side in this conflict, choose your guild, family and chapter, and claim the holy land in their name, taking it back from the usurpers. You can join your friends and follow the path of lost artefacts from ancient legends. You can delve deep into this world’s history and benefit from its glory and wisdom.
Know however that each and every move of yours is followed by enemies who await your moment of weakness. As soon as it happens, they will come and take what is the most precious to you.
Will you dare to accept such a challenge?

What is Gloria Victis
Gloria Victis is an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) with a great focus on classic roleplay. The world is inspired by the medieval Europe and Near East with fantasy elements such as mythical creatures from Slavic folklore.
How much will the game cost in its final version? Will there be a monthly fee?
The game will be free to play (F2P), but there will be so called Item Shop. Yet the items sold there for real-world money will not break the game's balance. They will be purely cosmetic or quality of life items. Few of them may be available for free in game, but they will require a lot of time and effort to obtain.
What about the game's combat system?
Gloria Victis will operate on a non-target combat system. The player will have to aim and attack in the right direction and from the right distance. The missiles will follow the laws of physic and will not be homing. Dexterity and tactics will matter in combat.
Will there be character classes ingame?
No. Player will have freedom in building their character using special stats and skills, but we will generate ready paths for those players, who'd rather follow something premade.
Is there going to be a crafting system and a way to enhance items and if so: will it have visual effects?
In Gloria Victis there will be 10 different crafts to choose from that players will develop as they see fit. Though upgrading an item will not bring shiny auras. It will also be more than just adding on runes.
Can we have our own pets ingame?
Character companions will be mostly animals (like hunting/war dogs, hunting eagles). They will have specific functions and controlling them will require obtaining proper skills.
Will there be magic in Gloria Victis?
Magic in GV will be an elite skill that only few will possess. It will be mostly based on illusion, alchemy and occultism.
How does the Gloria Victis world look like and what nations will be available for players?
The world is varied and open, created after the middle ages; especially their architecture, attires and customs. The nations available in the game will also be based on those, that existed in the real world. Playes will be able to choose between 4 nations: Etherians, Asken, Northern and Nuntians.
How does the quests system look like?
Quests in the game will resemble those you see in the classical cRPGs. They're multi-pathed and sometimes picking one of the paths will significantly influence the gameplay. Following a chosen path wll bring moral and ethical dilemmas as well as change the NPC attitude.
The game will be free of so called "Asian fireworks". Won't it lessen its appeal?
Gloria Victis is being developed for the fans of classic cRPGs such as Baldur's Gate, Gothic or Neverwinter Nights and it's simply different than today's Asian game standards that is predominant in the MMORPG market.
Be aware that this game is in the pre-alpha stage, so the animations, graphics etc will improve (yes animations are bad, thats why Black Eye studio wants to collect some money to make some motion-capture sessions and to improve the overall developement process). Pre-alpha will start soon.
I'm not working for the Black Eye Games, i'm just simple fan of this project so i want as much ppl as possible to know about it
