Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Delayed; New Release Date

Hack'n'slash game Wolcen: The Lords of Mayhem has suffered a delay. The game was supposed to launch this month, but the creators need more time to polish it up. Fortunately, the delay is small, and the devs have shown the character creation system to kill some of our time.

The visuals in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem are impressive - such effects were possible thanks to the CryEngine 3.

Daniel Dolui, general manager of Wolcen Studio, has informed that the hack'n'slash game Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem will appear a little later than expected. The full version was due to be released in January this year, but as you can find out from the latest video available below, the creators need more time to refine the title. The good news is that the release date has been set for February 13 2020, as written in the official announcement:

"We decided to delay the game by two weeks, bringing it to February 13th because the game needs to be as polished as possible. Internally, everyone is working incredibly hard towards the release of the game, and we are really looking forward to enjoying its content with our players. However, we need to do this right and ensure that we have a high quality, polished experience at launch.

In our current situation, even a day of work makes a huge impact on the final quality of Wolcen. We don’t want to waste several years of development, and the quality of such a strong project, by releasing an unstable version of the game."

Over 40 employees of the studio are currently workin on Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, and it is worth recalling that initially the team consisted of only five. The growth of the studio was possible thanks to the successes the Kickstarter and Steam. The game has been available since March 24, 2016 in Steam's early access and enjoys moderate interest of the players.

To make the wait more pleasant, the creators showed the character creation system in the second part of the above video. There were also short fragments of the game itself. Not much, but there is really little time left until the launch, despite the delay. Let us remind that Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem will only come out on PC.
