Black Eye Games has released some new gameplay for their upcoming realistic medieval MMORPG Gloria Victis. The footage should do a fairly good job of giving you an idea of how the Mount and Blade inspired MMO will play despite the obvious pre-alpha animations. Players will be able to engage in weighty non target based combat where damage is determined by the angular direction of the attack and distance. The video shows an assortment of weapons and armor and emphasizes that players are free to become proficient in all weapon types without any class restrictions.
There really hasn't been a true low-fantasy medieval MMORPG in well, I can't honestly remember. Naturally, the Mount and Blade series and Chivalry have shown developers there is a desire for tactical sword and board combat, but it has always remained within session based gaming. From the way things are shaping up with Gloria Victis, this could be a welcomed tactical MMORPG with large emergent gameplay perhaps resembling some elements of open world games such as DayZ.
Gloria Victis does not currently have a release date, but if you want to find out more be sure to check out the official page here.
