Prague, Czech Republic – September 30, 2021 – Lords and Villeins, a medieval city-building dynasty simulator developed by Honestly Games and published by 1C Entertainment, rolls out the tapestries for new ruling families today on PC Early Access via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, and other digital stores.


Check out the Lords and Villeins Early Access launch trailer here:


Develop a budding medieval settlement, complete with a growing populace of villagers to work the land. Influence the daily lives of individual serfs as they form families, creating long lineages specialized in professions such as butchers, tailors, blacksmiths, bakers, and more. Each family has a highly developed AI simulating entire lives in each household, creating thriving townships full of life, and guided by the Lords and Ladies of the governing family.


Create harmony between royalty and vassals. Find a middle ground when negotiating with groups of liegemen. Care for them by meeting their needs, collecting taxes, and training an army to keep the realms safe. When villeins are supported, Lords and Ladies can direct their subjects to tame, feed, and care for four types of domesticated animals.


Lords and Villeins is a feudal experience inspired by medieval history featuring different fealty types, taxing hierarchy, distinct seasons with seasonal-themed soundtracks, and the same wildlife and animal threats feudal Lords and Ladies encountered during medieval times.


The Early Access version includes the majority of the core mechanics, a number of peasant zones to develop production chains of over 90 resources ranging from food and commodities to building materials and equipment, and full customization of the ruling family, including physical attributes, sex orientation, number of children, and more. Many new features and improvements are already in the pipeline to be released via regular content updates during Early Access. A detailed list can be seen in the game’s public roadmap.


Lords and Villeins is available today for $19.99 USD / €19.99 EUR, with a 15% launch discount available during the first week. The game supports English and Czech languages. The 1.0 release is scheduled for 2022.
