    They don't seem to have published their preview yet.

    "The turn-based, faintly Jagged Alliancey combat is serviceable too. It feels a bit wooden and bloodless..."
    This sounds very familiar to me, the combat on the first expeditions had the exact same problem, I have not followed closely the development of this game, but feels like they have been listening a lot to peoples feeedback, I hope they tweak the combat a litle bit and make it more substantial.
    In Conquistador, combat had a tendency to the boring side, the extremely limited options regarding items and skills are to blame.

    RPS preview is just a big pile of shit, not even talking about the propaganda spread all over the place, but the article itself is pure garbage.

    Skipped through a few of the videos. The Scandinavian gameplay looks quite Baldur's Gate-y (not in a bad way) although I haven't seen one use of rest yet. Is that function limited to England or something ?

    Resting is for staving off fatigue (and feeding your people), as well as crafting, tinkering, repairing, etc. A lot of these features were not in the preview build. In the final game you'll be able to do all of it in both campaigns.
