Developer Triternion's online medieval hack 'n' slash, Mordhau, originally released back in April 2019. The title since then received a major expansion when it hit one million units sold in June, a few months after its launch. The developer teased another significant content update coming players' way earlier this month, and it is finally time.
Update #17 brings a plethora of new content, new features, modes, skin sets, a new map, and much more. Most importantly, the studio overhauled Mordhau's Duel mode, resetting everyone's duel MMR, adding leaderboards, introducing rank decay for high ELO players, and giving players the luxury to put their rank emblem on display on their profile whenever they queue up. Not only that, but the development team also reworked the loadout system, upgrading its capacity from 16 to 48 points, giving players the ability to try out more diverse builds and ease Triternion's work when addressing individual weapons and items. The following is a brief list of additions to Mordhau, including the new Invasion map, Battle Axe skin set, and so much more.
