All You Need to Know About Manor Lords Diplomacy

Wondering how Manor Lords diplomacy works? Here’s all you need to know about it


Manor Lords, a medieval city-builder inspired by 14th century Franconia, has taken Steam by storm. With over 3 million wishlists, it dethroned heavy hitters like Hollow Knight: Silksong and Hades 2 to become the platform's most anticipated game of 2024. Launching into Early Access on April 26th, Manor Lords boasts not only stunning visuals but also deep strategic systems, encompassing resource management, intricate city building, and large-scale tactical combat.

While Manor Lords boasts impressive city-building and warfare, one question lingers: diplomacy. This feature, a staple of the genre, lets players forge alliances and rivalries with AI factions, adding strategic depth and replayability. If you haven’t started the game yet, let’s tell you all you need to know about Manor Lords diplomacy.

Manor Lords fans hoping for diplomacy at launch were left disappointed. A recent Reddit Q&A with a Slavic Magic developer confirms the game won't feature it on April 26th. The reason? Currently, there are no AI lords on the map to interact with, aside from specific bandit encounters and challenges against a single off-map lord for land control.

“Are there diplomatic interactions or alliances in Manor Lords?

There are no on-map AI Lords or other towns with which to interact at the moment in Early Access. At the moment, some scenarios have bandits you can clear, and there is an off-map AI lord you can challenge to control regions as the game progresses.”

So, Manor Lords diplomacy will not be an option, much to the disappointment of strategy players. This might disappoint players who enjoy forging alliances and rivalries. While the developer's statement suggests diplomacy could be added later, the current focus leans towards conquering lands through bandit skirmishes and specific challenges against a single off-map lord.

Without these diplomatic options, replayability might suffer for those who favor strategic expansion over pure city-building. However, Manor Lords still boasts an interesting combat system, but as with any strategy game, the most memorable battles will likely arise from the complex situations that lead to conflict, not just the combat itself.

While Slavic Magic hasn't confirmed diplomacy for launch, they plan to unveil a development roadmap soon. This roadmap might shed light on potential future features, including Manor Lords diplomacy.
