Life is Feudal: MMO is a large-scale group-focused RPG, that places players in a highly realistic, non-magic, medieval world where danger lurks around every corner. It's up to players to work together to find resources, craft tools and team up to build a fully functioning feudal society in an unforgiving, archaic world. Players may find a place in society as a vassal, a knight, a farmer or even royalty, as their guild builds and expands their medieval societies.

While players may start their adventure alone, as they gather and craft supplies needed to make it to the next day, they will quickly meet up with others to form groups, guilds, and finally, work their way up to complete medieval societies and nation-states.

Life is Feudal: MMO aims to be a realistic social experience, where the best way to thrive in the world is to work together and build a fully functioning society, where everyone has a place, from the most basic hunters and gatherers to farmers, soldiers and civic leaders.

On December 18, 2020, the game's developers announced that Life is Feudal: MMO would shut down on January 18, 2021, just after the game's third anniversary Steam Early Access release. Th developers blame a conflict with another company that has left them being unable to pay for servers and other services, like GM assistance. It was also announced that a final patch would be released before the game sunsets to provide a "fresh experience" for players before the servers officially shut down[1]


Terraforming & Construction[]

Deform terrain - Dig tunnels, raise or level hills, and build structures like stone towers, castles and more. Battle formation system: Players can be grouped up into battle formations to fight better together and gain damage bonuses.


Create tools, weapons and more from resources found in the world.

Realistic Player Damage[]

Combat damage depends on weapons used, armour worn, your character's current physical condition, etc.

Weather Effects[]

There are five climate zones with distinct weather and length of seasons. Weather and climate have a real and meaningful impact, For example, trees grow better in colder temperatures and farming is best in warmer climate zones.

Survival Gameplay[]

Players must take into account things like hunger, blood loss, frostbite, and wild animals.

Complex Food and Cooking System[]

Multiple ingredients when mixed with cooking skills create recipes to help keep players strong. Higher quality food equals better skill bonuses. It pays to keep a cooking master in the group since their meals can provide bonuses to everyone!

Separate Health and Stamina Bars[]

One HP bar measures physical health, and the other measures consciousness. Lose all soft HP and you pass out, but lose all hard HP and you die. The "Hard Stamina Bar" determines how long you can run long distances, while the "Soft Stamina Bar" measures sprinting and short duration endurance.

Persistent world[]

Explore a massive, no-loading screen world that spans 49 servers and would take several hours to cross on foot.

Private property/land claims[]

Players and groups can lay claim to territory, which will protect the land and buildings on it from random looters.
