With the June 1 update and the release of the new Season, Conqueror’s Blade: Sengoku, we're working on new additions and improvements, including what Honour can be used for, tutorial changes, and new options for character customisation. Read on to find out more about all these changes, as well as upcoming improvements to the game's performance.
We're adding a new Honour Shop which unlocks at Level 100, giving you more opportunities to buy useful items with the Honour you earn.
Inside the Honour Shop, you'll be able to spend honour on Unit Mastery items (subject to a weekly purchase limit), a Mace Sergeants Token, and Doctrines exclusive to the Unit (subject to a total purchase limit).
We'll continue to update the stock available at the Honour Shop, so stay tuned!
Our effort to improve game performance doesn’t just end with the start of a new Season. We made adjustments throughout the Eternal Season over the past few months, and the standard test computers we used (configuration below) saw an average increase of 10 FPS as a result.
- Monitor: 1080P
- CPU: Intel i7 7700K
- GPU: GTX 1060 (6G)
- RAM: 16G
- DirectX 11
New: Fullscreen Exclusive Mode
By playing on Fullscreen Exclusive Mode (Settings - Graphics - Display Mode - Fullscreen Exclusive), you'll have an overall smoother experience.
Improved: Unit Overhead Info Loading & Display Logic
By splitting up the information load of Heroes and Units (HP bar, name, defence values, etc.), we have reduced the amount of information that loads at any one time. What's more, by improving the information of visible objects rendered in real-time, we have also reduced the resources the game takes up.
New: Option to Hide Dead Units
We've added an option to ‘Hide Dead Units’ under Settings. The models of dead Units will now be removed after a while to further reduce resource usage.
Improving performance is a long-term effort, and we'll continue to share information with you all as we make further improvements.
New: Team Colours
Following feedback we've received regarding teams' Unit colours, we've added the following colour options to (Settings - Unit Colour):
- My Units - Red
- Allied Units - Burgundy
- Enemy Units - Slate Grey
Conqueror's Blade is a game that can be challenging to master and caters to a specific audience. It's been quite difficult for us to find a way in which to quickly help new players get accustomed. With the new Season, players entering Conqueror's Blade for the first time will experience an all-new tutorial that'll hopefully allow them to learn the ropes quicker than ever.
We've made the following changes to the tutorial:
- All PvE stages are more focused on teaching the player about Units, touching upon brace, damage types, and battle strategies.
- We've also added a tutorial for each related action, making them an integral part of the stage itself.
- We've also used tooltip boxes to touch upon other features, enabling newer players to come to terms with these faster.
- We've also made a new Unit for the tutorial, the Mace Sergeants, and they have exclusive Doctrines and Mastery available to them too. By guiding new players to focus on training this one Unit, they'll better understand what makes up the core of Conqueror's Blade.
Players who created a character before the start of the Sengoku Season can purchase the Mace Sergeants Contract and their Doctrines from the Honour Shop.
Our old character customisation options have gone mostly unchanged since the games launch, and we felt it was time to add some new options with the upcoming Season. We've improved the detail for character faces and hair, and added new face presets.
Characters created before the new Season can speak to the Warden to receive 1x Disguise Kit. None of our old customisation options are going away, so you're free to use them if you prefer those.

See you on the battlefield when the new Season, Conqueror’s Blade: Sengoku, launches on June 1!
