Top 12 Games Like Life is Feudal (12 Games Better Than Life is Feudal in Their Own Way)

Games like Life is Feudal
Now everyone pose for the picture!

What are the Best Games like Life is Feudal?

Life is Feudal is mediaeval life simulator that boasts about its realistic night/day cycle, natural weather, and region exclusive recourses, all of which affects the way the player can gather things like food and resources for crafting. It also brags about engaging PVP combat in which a player can overtake another players territory or encourages them try diplomacy if they don’t want to immediately start clashing swords. While that is fine for most players, there are some players who’d much rather spend their time storming the castle than crafting it. So here are 12 games that put the life (not to mention fighting) back into mediaeval life simulation:

12. Gloria Victis

Gloria Victis gameplay

The main goal in the low fantasy game Gloria Vicitis is to gain and rule over your territory along with other players you form guilds with along the way.  Choose your class from several options like soldier, assassin, farmer, and many others, each with their own perks. Combat is fluid and dynamic, forcing the player to use tactical rolls and shield blocks instead of just hacking and slashing like a traditional simulation game. Players are also encouraged to storm castles of other guilds in order to take over more territory. Have fun storming other player’s castles and defending you own!

This brings a whole new meaning to the Castle Doctrine.

No matter what class you choose, you’ll get some snazzy armor to go along with it.

11. Chronicles of Elyria

Chronicles of Elyria Gameplay

Chronicles of Elyria takes a different approach to the genre by having the player character age throughout the game and eventually dying before being reborn for another round of the game, like a sort of Medieval Sims Edition The players are encouraged to choose their own goals if  becoming a king (or a tyrant in some cases) isn’t appealing to them and ever small thing the player does, from farming for years to smithing for a few hours, matters in the game. Not a moment goes wasted in this MMORPG as one simple action is guaranteed to open up several narratives unique to your game. Your destiny is in your hands alone.

Soon… the castle will be mine.

There’s nothing better than a good round of jousting.

10. Conqueror’s Blade

Conqueror’s Blade gameplay

Conqueror’s Blade focus is almost entirely on combat with little to no daily life activities. The main goal is to form the ultimate, unbeatable army in order to win battles. And these armies aren’t just from medieval Europe, but from all over the world from Swiss Halberdiers to even samurai from distant Japan. Use class advantages to defend your own fortress or take over other fortresses  in order to expand your territory. It’s the Ultimate Showdown of who’s who in medieval combat.

Someone didn’t get the memo that they’re supposed to be facing the way the rest of the army is facing.

Now you can have your own epic samurai fight.

9. Rustler

Rustler gameplay

Rustler takes an even different approach by being not at all historically accurate at all and throwing in a bunch of modern pop cultural references. Instead of becoming a brave, daring hero or an all-powerful king, you get to be a rampaging thug who does whatever they want to do.  You can do anything from stealing a horse, to slashing knights with your sword and having a chase, to becoming corrupt city guard who falls asleep on watch duty and accepts bribes. Nothing is off limits- everything is permitted.

“So, you wish to surrender to me? I accept!”

Would running people over in a wagon be considered vehicular manslaughter?

8. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance gameplay

In this game, you play the character of Henry, ordinary son of an ordinary blacksmith who goes on a quest for vengeance against those who destroyed his village by helping Lord Radzig Kobyla against the invading forces of Hungary. You are in full control of what Henry can become, from noble knight, to sneaky, cutthroat archer. There are consequences to your actions in this realistic open world, some which lead to skill improvement, perks, or poor Henry’s death. Henry’s life is in your hands, will he rise or fall?

This is Henry. He is not having a great day.

Still better than getting pecked to death by chickens after you hit one.

7. Mount & Blade: Warband

Mount & Blade: Warband gameplay

In a country torn by war, the player seeks to become a ruler of one of the warring faction in order to, well, rule. You can collect loyal vassals along the way, marry a lady for love or money, and spend money for equipment upgrades to help you in battle. Manage your troops by keeping morale high, engage in combat that allows you to easily to move from a sword to a javelin if needed be (so you can skewer that pesky archer that keeps hitting you before you get to them), play matches on random maps, or create your own. It’s your war, fight the way you want to.

Time traveler Napoleon theory confirmed.

I bet club guy wishes he became a farmer instead.

6. Mount & Blade Bannerlord 2

Mount & Blade Bannerlord 2 gameplay

The sequel (and prequel) to the previously listed game, Bannerlord 2 offers sieges machinery, secret criminal empires, and diplomacy as ways to obtain power. Terrorize your enemy’s towns with your warhorses and laugh as they helplessly watch it burn to the, . Form historic peace treaties and then stab the one you made the treaty with in the back if you want to later on. Every choice leads to worldwide consequences that will either help your factions or hurt your enemies, or hurt you if you’re not careful. Run your economy so that you can use money to buy more things to go burn more of your enemies’ villages. What will you do in your conquest for power?

The cavalry has arrived! Literally.

On my way to seize your castle.

5. Valhall

Valhall gameplay

Play as a dead Viking warrior seeking to stop Ragnarök after surviving the last battle of Odin’s army by retrieving Odin’s very own blade! Too bad there are a bunch of other warriors wanting the blade for themselves. The edges of the map crumbles away as the battle goes on, forcing combatants closer and closer together as the land shrinks. Choose to view the battle up close and personal, or separate yourself from it a little bit if you need a bit of visual space. May Odin be with you.

One shall stand…the rest shall fall.

Maybe if I stay over here, they’ll ignore me.

4. Mortal Online

The latest installment of the infamous hard-but-fair Dark Souls series offers even bigger and badder monsters and environments than before. Allow yourself to be engulfed into the darkness of the game, with a combat system that requires you to learn from each defeat in order to beat each enemy. Sometimes, running away will be your best option and sometimes you will have to backtrack to find that one weapon or set of armor you really need. But one thing is for sure, your journey will be epic and you will slay giant monsters. Just be careful not to stand under them when they do fall.

Of course, there are giant freaky spider monsters…
