The Black Death will launch on to Steam’s Early Access program. This means the game is still in active development and is liable to change. The Early Access program will not only allow the player enjoy the fantastic gameplay experience that is The Black Death, but will also allow the player to make a real difference to how the game progresses.

The Game:

Welcome to the gritty medieval world of The Black Death. The plague has left a trail of destruction across Western Europe. Those who endure struggle against sickness, scarce resources and other desperate survivors.

Start as a beggar and work your way up to a number of realistic professions, each with their own ways to survive. Enter a huge multiplayer open world, set in 14th century western Europe. Trade at fisherman’s ports, loot disease infested cities, hunt wild animals in dense forests, fight in bandit camps, upgrade your properties and much more. Loot, pillage, craft and survive in an epic struggle against The Black Death.

The Black Death reviews and comments

Early Access Review The Black Death ... Death and Misery have afflicted the Kingdom. "Black Death" is an ever-present Danger, and the Country's Survivors are simply trying to survive in this Severe period. In other words, another Survival game, which in my Opinion stands out significantly from those I have played so far (Reign of Kings, Life is Feudal). In my Opinion, the biggest Difference here is the Game concept. Unlike most other Survival Games, "The Black Death" doesn't build a stock/a base/a Fessert out of Nowhere. The World has prefabricated Settlements, cities, Castles and Baits. In addition, many more or less remote houses spread over the Map. If you want to settle somewhere, you have to earn money first in order to be able to buy a small Hut within the named Villages, or even in the Wilderness. Thus, "The Black Death" focuses primarily on playing your own role/Charter. It doesn't matter if you are more adept at PVE or PVP or EVEN in the Direction Of Roleplay (for which I Think the Game is predestined). Both numerous NPCs, be They Bandits, wild Animals or Traders in the City, or a server populated By other Players, offer enough possibilities for everyone's Taste. At the beginning of each Adventure, however, the Choice of class is coming up. You have the Choice between Militia, Blacksmith, Knight, Merchant, Monk, Farmer, Hunter, criminal (That would all have to be = D). Depending on your Choice of Class, you have different Options when It comes to Crafting and Skills. Thus, the Milical is of course at the advantage of the Trader when It comes to fighting. For this, the Merchant, the one who is the durhc Crafting and the touting of his Goods, can earn a golden Nail-out. But of course this does not mean that the Trader can not also grab a Sword In order to blow one over the Turnip to the Day thief who wants to give him a purse. On The other hand, of course, the Militsin can fry his Flesh over the Fire. However, if he wants a daging stew, he should probably ask someone who has done so many times;) All in all, I have to say, this Game has a huge Poteential In my Opinion and is already Fun. However, it has yet to develop. Both in Feature Development and Fixing Bugs. The Game is still in its Infancy, but this is normal; After all, it is also an Early Acces Game. However, I recommend to anyone who stands on such SPiele to Buy it to support the Developers financially and thus thus, the step Is pushed. In the SInne, I hope I was able to help you with my terse Review. Lots of Greetings and a lot of Fun when Zocking!
