Arenas Negras Menu Background with Old Acquaintances Release
20 Jun | 10:00 am

Old Acquaintances is now live! As part of the release, we have included a telling menu background, one which many vagri will be familiar with, especially those who have played the Pilgrims of the Wasteland scenario. The Black Sands and the distant ruins of Arx Mortis is, after all, where it all ended – and where it shall begin anew in the new DLC – for Sedarias.

Let’s keep it short and sweet: our new Old Acquaintances DLC is now available on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store!

We hope you’ll enjoy the expanded lore, characters, and hirelings on offer – all have been a pleasure to work on.

Old Acquaintances DLC: Meet the New Hirelings
06 Jun | 10:00 am

As part of the release of our upcoming Old Acquaintances DLC, The Freelancers’ Guild – or Collegium Mercennaris – will be added to the game, extending hireling options for aspiring vagri. Known across the Riven Realms for their neutrality, the Guild operates under a strict Imperial mandate, which allows them to lease out mercenaries to private persons. Collegia Mercennaris also prides itself on a diverse offering; ex-gladiators, legion veterans, and even Kal’rish warriors number among their ranks, as do licensed Necromancers who do not serve the Church for one reason or another.

‘Old Acquaintances’ DLC Release Date and Trailer
30 May | 10:00 am

The time is finally nigh: we have a release date for Old Acquaintances and a fresh release trailer to boot!

The DLC will drop on the 12th of June, 2024, and those of you who have already played the ‘Pilgrims of the Wasteland’ scenario will surely recall the identities of the two returning companions. For those who do not, the man by the campfire is Javek, a remarkable telepath and sorcerer with unique abilities, while the bony hand that pushes through the black sands of Arenas Negras belongs to Sedarias, a Knight of the Black Sun and defender of the Empire.

New Build Is OUT - Patch: 1.166 Codename: Dissonant
23 May | 2:00 pm

Hey everyone,

This time, we come to you with a huge package of changes to the game. The first order of business:

The Prologue (Demo)

This scenario offers players a fixed timeframe within which they can play Vagrus without purchasing the game. Since its release in May of 2023, we’ve been eyeballing it for quite some time, and have finally overhauled it with many of the quality of life improvements the main game has seen. See our Steam post here for more information.

The Latest Quality of Life and Design Improvements
16 May | 10:00 am

As we close in on the release of our Old Acquaintances DLC, the portions of the team that are not busy drawing or writing have been hard at work on a plethora of miscellaneous QoL improvements, the fruits of which have now been made public.

Mercenary Tasks

We’ve always endeavored to make some sweeping changes to how Mercenary Tasks work, and happily, we’ve now had the time to implement them. These tasks have always had time limits, yet now, they function far more logically. This is to say that after you complete an elimination or defending task, you may return to the faction that gave it to you at any time after you do so, while in the past the time limit was still active, even after you had completed but haven’t turned it in.

While the changes are wide-ranging and significant, we’ve broken down each batch into easily digestible sections, the first of which is the Outpost and its coming update. For those of you looking for an abridged breakdown of what we’ve been working on you may simply scroll down to the patch notes.
