King's Arthur Gold is being renamed King Arthur's Gold Classic, as a beta has started for an updated version of the game.
According to the developer, the new version will include naval warfare, drivable siege engines with gunners and drivers, 3 types of bombs, 4 types of arrows, mines and kegs, factories and infrastructure building. It will also include two new game modes, Team Deathmatch and Take the Halls; the devs also promise even more modes including Capture the Flag and Zombies.
The game takes many cues from Minecraft as well, as players can affect the landscape in a similar way, as crafting can create, for instance, fire arrows. Players who purchase the beta will be allowed to access the game engine and scripting as well.
Gamers can check out the game on the official site.
