Release date announced!


Hello everyone! The official release date and leaving Early Access will happen April 1 2017. We understand you were expecting the game a bit sooner so we will tell you what changes will be made in this long period of time. In Legends of Eisenwald you will find everything that you like in computer games. The game will be a multiplayer, so it will require an Internet connection at all times. You will have to fight other online-barons not only in the hard battles but also in dance balls with an ability to change in detail the appearance of your hero for in-game currency. We came up with an interesting mechanic where your diplomatic decisions directly influence what is happening in the games world. So, if you say “Yes”, one thing will happen, if you say “No”, completely another. System of global magic will allow you to use terramorphing of the enemies lands so they become unsuitable for living. But remember, this can cost you a lot.

A new hero - Ueberzombi

A fourth hero will be introduced in the game, so in near future you will be able to play in Legends of Eisenwald for a zombie. And here is the most interesting starts, because as “ueber-zombie” you can rule over the minions of zombies and other undead, whose goal will be to disturb other players when you are getting near to eat their brains. Online matches with shooting zombies with hand cannons will be singled out into a separate game in our game setting. Silver bullets will cost more than usual ones.

Name Change

Because of the fact there are too many games with a word Legends in a title and with desire to emphasize a zombie part, we will rename the game into LegendZ of Eisenwald.

Survival, crafting and digestion

We are following modern trends and we assure you that our game will have elements of survival like necessity to buy food at markets, to have a cook that will make nutritios meals for your character out of products you bought (there will be a mini game for a cook, where you will have to choose quickly ingredients, place them into a pot and stir until it’s ready). Our game will require an advance digestion system where for each meal you eat you will have to roll 3 dice and have result of 15 and higher so you will not get food poisoning. Is it difficult? Medieval times were much harder! You will have to eat 2-3 times a day, and the game will count how much food and armor you are taking with you, so getting a horse sooner will be very essential (to make life easier, we will provide an opportunity to buy a horse for real currency).

Cherry on top in LegendZ of Eisenwald will be a possibility to build your own castles. You can draw it in your editor for tablets that will be sold separately and then piece by piece you can build your own castle using all the colors of a rainbow. All these amazing things you can start doing in just three years!

Merry wishes,

All of us at Aterdux

      Sorry that your programmer has to go through that. Best of luck to them, and I wish them a speedy recovery.

      btw: I would have preferred a rainbow unicorn. Just saying. :D

    3. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ on April 3, 2014

      hehe I'm late to the party but knew it had to be a joke. ;-) Looking forward to the next update and in all seriousness I hope everything goes very well for said programmer and family.

    5. Creator Mentoliptus on April 2, 2014

      Whew.....almost believed it (because I saw it today). Good one guys ;)

    6. Creator TanC on April 2, 2014

      Well done guys, you actually got me fuming for a moment there..."always online!?"...till I saw the date. Thanks, you've made my day! Keep being cool, Aterdux! :)

    7. Creator Nikolay Donets on April 2, 2014

      Спасибо за вызваную на моём лице улыбку.

    8. Creator Alex Podgoredsky on April 2, 2014

      Отличные первоапрельские новости! :)

    9. Creator Nicholas Russell on April 1, 2014

      For future reference announcing the release date as April 1st of any year, especially at the start of your joke? Kind of ruins the trick. Try something like:

      "Legends of Eisenwald, we regret to say, is being canceled. We faced market realities and decided our game, which lacks any bird slinging action, simply isn't viable enough to be profitable. But don't despair: you all will recieve a free copy of Goat Simulator as compensation.

      April fools!"

      When you spell out your thing as a prank at the very start it just becomes too boringly obvious is all. Good luck next year, when Gamepro's Gouken joins the Eisenwald universe.

      Well played Aterdux....well played! :P

      Many years ago I had a job in DP (the IT acronym had not been invented yet) in California. There were frequent layoffs, management did not like DP and thought it cost too much money, morale was very bad. On 4/1 they announced that they would open a new processing center in Texas and only those who would be willing to move would get to keep their jobs. Of course it was an April fool's joke. Management thought it was hilarious. The rest of us just hated our management even more. Funny joke.

    12. Creator endirasae on April 1, 2014

      I admit it, you got me for a second there :p (I blame not having finished my morning coffee yet...)

    13. Creator David How on April 1, 2014

    14. Creator Sleet on April 1, 2014

      Great humor, guys! Thanks for the update, and I'm looking forward to the next serious one as well.

    15. Creator Daerdor on April 1, 2014

    16. Creator Avarchillion on April 1, 2014

      Great! Love the humor! :-D

    17. Creator Zackary Rhodes on April 1, 2014

      This is greatness! Just... just pure greatness.

    18. Creator Darklord on April 1, 2014

      Hah hah haaa! Love it. ;)

    19. Creator Voronwer on April 1, 2014

      Yeah, so you had me for a moment there when I saw the date until I remembered what day it is.

    20. Creator Wolf Neumann on April 1, 2014

      LegendZ and Ueberzombie?
      That's wunderbar!

    21. Creator Jani Jereb on April 1, 2014

      Whoaaah? What? Are you kidding me?! That's really rushing it. There's no way the game will be finished by then.

    22. Creator Patrick Watson on April 1, 2014

      Very good had me for a minute until i thought oh its April 1st lol.

    23. Creator Patrick Marchand on April 1, 2014

      Haha good one, I wasnt aware it was april first before I got halfway there xD

    24. Creator Yemeth on April 1, 2014

      I am bit bummed out that this will be a Aprils fool joke, it sounds like a fantastic idea. How about you put in some pink pony bosses with big eyes and even bigger eyelashes, I think it would add the immersion...

    25. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on April 1, 2014

      Thanks for your comments! Brian, silver bullets are for getting more money, who cares about killing zombies :)

      Bryce, we will post an update soon, but one programmer in our team will have to undergo a heart surgery. Needless to say, this is not going to speed things up. Replacing him (or anyone) is virtually impossible now, the code is very complex and huge.

    26. Creator daquack on April 1, 2014

      muahaha....awesome update.

      Took me a second to remember the date.

    27. Creator Bryce on April 1, 2014

      OMG so not funny. I was ready to lambaste your deal with that publisher. Seriously though any eta on the release? :p

    28. Creator Brian Watzig on April 1, 2014

      one small issue I see. silver bullets aren't for killing zombies, so why would anyone buy them?

    29. Creator Zerotown on April 1, 2014

      Oh, I wish I could double my pledge :)

    30. Creator Dave, Shadowrunner on April 1, 2014

      Oh man you guys really had me going for about 1 excruciating second. Well done.

    31. Creator Celeir on April 1, 2014

      Will you add a robbing caravans option? I've been waiting for it for 2 years!

    32. Creator Chad Wallace on April 1, 2014

      YES!! I LOVE zombies!! Totally worth the 3 year wait! Good going,guys!

    33. Creator Gabor Domjan on April 1, 2014

      You almost got me in the first sentence. But you don't fool me. :)
