Barbaria 1.0 Launch Update

February 9, 2023

New Features:​

  • New Champion: Krank – Krank’s “Overload” divine juice power creates an energy bomb that will temporarily disable enemy structures where it explodes.

  • New Minion: Cyclotaur – Half cyclops, half minotaur, totally into smashing things. Cyclotaurs move slowly, but packs a wallop and can destroy traps and moving walls.

  • New Weapon: Sword – Did we really make it all the way through early access without a sword? Slice and stab enemies with the pointy end.

  • Cross-play with Quest2 players

Improvements and Fixes:

  • Gladiatrix Recall now has energy pulse that knocks back nearby enemies

  • Carnival: Add Recent Players List

  • Fix Steam VR Guardian not showing up on Index

  • Endless Onslaught: Enemy wave difficulty can now increase past Level 5

  • Matchmaking: Realm options on the map now reset after each attack to use your most recent Mightiness score and get better matches.

  • Various performance and polish improvements


  • Replay Backwards Compatibility: In order to facilitate replay crossplay across platforms, we had to make a breaking change to our replay format.  We don’t block the ability to pull up old replays from the replay stations, but Early Access players will likely notice some connectors/structures out of place if going back to review previous conquests created with the Early Access builds.

  • Virtual Desktop: PCVR Players accessing the game through Virtual Desktop on a Quest headset may notice throw targeting and velocity issues if they turn their bodies during the initial boot flow and view recentering.  Hold down the Oculus button on your right controller for 3s to recenter your view through the Quest system after booting to the Stronghold to fix throw velocities.

Barbaria 0.9.7 Content Update

December 22, 2022

New Features:​

  • Carnage Carnival: New Stronghold station allows you to search for other players by name and attack their base in an unranked mode.

  • Playground: Ever wondered how many spring trap combos you can get? Create and save a Playground realm separate from your main ranked realm. Try other players’ Playgrounds by searching for them at Carnage Carnival.

  • Better matchmaking for early game players

  • Various performance and polish improvements

Note for PC Virtual Desktop users:

  • We have a known issue where boot up view re-centering isn't coming through on Virtual Desktop and can result in throw targeting and other velocity calculations being off. As a work around, once the game fully launches into the stronghold, hold down the Oculus button on your right Quest controller to re-center manually and that should fix things.
