Songs of Conquest 2023 Roadmap Reveal

Lavapotion, the team behind the Heroes of Might and Magic-inspired Songs of Conquest, brings us an updated early access roadmap for their game that promises three major updates throughout 2023. The third of those is currently scheduled for late Q3 2023 and is set to mark the game's full release.

But before we get to that point, we'll be getting a number of AI improvements, a new artifact market, more Skirmish maps, two additional campaigns, as well as new neutral units, artifacts and unit traits.

Here's more on that:

Greetings Wielders!

2023 is going to be a big year for Songs of Conquest and for everyone here at Lavapotion. Not only is this the year when we will launch our full game (at the end of Q3) but there are many exciting features and things planned throughout the year that we are thrilled over!

Fully refreshed after a Swedish winter holiday we have dived into 2023 with vigor. Plans have been drafted and a new roadmap has been finalized for your enjoyment!

Now, we want to emphasize that this is a living document. Things might be added to the plan as we move forward, but the things listed are the key elements towards the full release.

So what exactly are the key elements?

In the first quarter of 2023 we are introducing a much asked for feature with the new artifact market where Wielders can buy and sell their hard earned items. We are also improving the Beacons so Wielders will be able to use them as portals and travel across the adventure map.

We will be adding more skirmish maps of varying sizes continuously throughout the year. Some of them have been under construction for a while now and we are eager for you to try them. A coming highlight includes the launching of our largest skirmish map yet!

The second quarter of 2023 is all about the Barony of Loth. We’ll be releasing our third campaign and you’ll get the chance to understand how and why the Barony became the necromancers they are today. We are also introducing brand new unit traits and abilities for many of the faction units as well as more hostile neutral units.

During the third quarter our eyes turn towards the sandy dunes of Barya as we introduce our fourth and final campaign. Our mercenaries, scientists and contract-following merchants finally get their time in the sun (literally!). You’ll get to follow their Wielders as we tie together the story that started with the Arleon campaign.

We will also be adding many new artifacts and introducing support for creating fantastic campaigns of your own through mods. Of course we will be adding achievements so that you can really brag about all that you have accomplished!

And what about AI improvements? For sure! They are on-going and will be portioned out with our monthly updates. Enhanced strategic reasoning, battle tactics and difficulty parameters are just some of the improvements planned before release.

We are overwhelmed over the love and support that we are getting and we hope you are as excited for the year ahead as we are! If you have any questions we recommend our active and fantastic Discord Community where you can ask questions, share tactics and hype. But do feel free to drop a comment here on Steam. We read it all and try to reply as often as we can!
