This patch adds support for custom servers, allowing community members to host their own Mirage servers anywhere worldwide. It also adds spectacular custom game options!
To celebrate, we’re taking a community vote for a new wacky game mod to be hosted on an official server for one week only.
Watch the video for a preview of three mods to vote on:

Issues related to the backend (affecting Training and XP display) are also fully resolved. Previously, the high player population during Mirage’s Steam Free Day temporarily knocked this backend out of service. Any experience earned during this period (and/or anytime afterward) should now display properly, character customization options are back on track and the Training/tutorial level is now online.

On September 6th, Mirage went temporarily free-for-a-day on Steam.
Our primary reason for doing this promotion was to bring new players in, to keep Mirage playable for its (originally) small but dedicated community. We’re very pleased to say that was a huge success.
Player numbers got massive, and much bigger than we expected! Almost a week later, server population is still very healthy, hovering at around 1000 concurrent as of writing.
If you missed the free day, you can still get Mirage for a new low price of $9.99 (down from $29.99 USD).
If you got Mirage for free and want to show us some monetary love, consider grabbing the $10 Special Edition upgrade DLC. This gets you a free copy of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (to the same Steam account), the soundtrack, art pieces, exclusive armor unlocks and more!
Finally, if you have played Mirage and want to tell others about your impressions, please leave a review on Steam!

We welcome players to submit bug reports and gameplay suggestions to our forum.
Patch 4 (August 2017)
The Gladiator Update – Patch 3 (July 2017)
Patch 2 (June 2017)
Patch 1 (June 2017)
Mirage: Arcane Warfare will be Free for a Day on Steam starting tomorrow, September 6th. For 24 hours only, add Mirage to your library – and keep it forever.
After 10am PDT on September 7th, the free promotion will end – but the Standard Edition price will drop to $9.99 USD permanently.
The Special Edition – including a free copy of Chivalry – will remain a $9.99 USD upgrade.
Mirage launch sales were poor. That sucked, and we know it. Our company’s doing fine, and we’ll be able to continue to make awesome games in the future.
More than anything, we’re disappointed for the players who stuck by us and did buy Mirage – but who have struggled to find people to play against. We just want people to play the game we spent years making.
We have faith that Mirage can find a larger audience still, so we’re being aggressive about getting it into people’s hands.
We think Mirage is a great game, but don’t take our word for it – we encourage you to check out press reviews before you commit to trying or buying:
Since launch, we’ve added new maps, new features like bots, new character abilities, more class customization options – and we have set various patches live to continue to improve performance and player experience.
Give it a shot while it’s free! We hope to see you on the battlefield soon.
