Video Game Updates & Patch Notes

Mordhau celebrates 5th anniversary with the Demon Horde Update

April 29, 2024  marks a massive milestone for the medieval melee combat game Mordhau, as developer Triternion rolls out Patch #29, introducing the chilling Demon Horde mode and kicking off a two-week 5th Anniversary Event. Fans can participate in celebrations until May 13th, with exclusive rewards.

The launch trailer for the Demon Horde and further details about the update can be found below:

5 Year Anniversary Event – April 29th to May 13th 2024: Players joining the game during this time-limited anniversary event will be rewarded with an exclusive in-game emblem and banner to commemorate MORDHAU’s legacy. Plus, enjoy extra GOLD and XP throughout the event.

Demon Horde: As part of the anniversary patch, the Horde Mode has undergone a substantial overhaul. This classic game mode is revitalised with revamped maps, inventory system enhancements, skill tree adjustments, the introduction of new NPC adversaries, and an array of fresh weaponry. Did somebody say “Blunderbuss”?

New Map Variants: Castello, Mountain Peak and Totenwald have undergone a hellish transformation, infused with demonic energy and swarming with fresh enemies.. Amidst the chaos, the players must navigate through a variety of objectives, each demanding a different approach, culminating in a final battle.

Difficulty scaling – Prestige: We are introducing a new difficulty scaling system in the Demon Horde maps – Prestige. Consecutive wins will increase the Prestige level by 35%, while consecutive losses will reduce it by 20%. This feature ensures that the challenge level dynamically adjusts according to player performance.

Horde Skills rework: Many of the existing Horde skills have been updated to work with the new Demon Horde mode and offer returning players a broader range of options to tailor their gaming experience.

Blessed Weapons: Players will have the ability to bless weapons at Altars for a fee, granting them enhanced damage and giving them new abilities or alterations. We have also introduced new weaponry to combat the demonic forces. Can you find them all?
New DLC Content: Introducing the Adventurer Pack, consisting of four unique armour sets incorporating fantasy elements.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
