    it's pretty good. Great combat system, great writing, but lots of technical issues.

    But when i played it, the big bugs are mostly gone. I did got some wacky visual and physics bug in combat where when a dude die, they just froze in place instead of falling down like a good corpse. There is also where a dude float instead of walking and a litttle girl stuck in combat that isnt actually part of cthe combat.

    They donnt really break anything, but cN be annoying and distracting

    I have finished the game - it's awesome. Bugs are still rampant though (some trigger checks are wrong for example the slave quest from Orkney triggers during the attack on Eoforwic and you start combat against 0 opponents). Great game nonetheless and one that is completetly different from it's predecessors.

    Have to wonder if developers have some kind of deal with graphics card companies to fry GPUs, there's basically no reason in the universe why games nowadays should run as hot as they do.

    Frame limiter is your friend. Expedition:Conquisador has similar problem of >9000 fps.

    some games without proper limiter/vsync and some bad coding will run as hard as your gpu can work, so yeah, notvturning on limiter will cause the frame goes over 9000 as work your gpu like it is mining bitcoin.

    But to answer the question why? It is a mystery

    Nn.

    Incidentally, this is a good game, but I strongly dislike the changes from Conquistador. Being more of an isometric RPG drained the immense sense of discovery and exploration to a fraction of what it formerly was. They traded design sensibilities that were fun and thematically appropriate for more theme parky BG2 elements.

    A good example of what I mean is that in Conquistador you have these vague Indiana Jones style encounters with supernatural forces, but you have to dig around for them. Now you get totally on the rails camping dreams with Odin. Can't miss 'em.

    Can't help but feel as though this franchise should be above that.

    I like he direction they took with this game, but I do wish they would have been able to keep some of this

    a little more alive. I would definitely say that I prefer Vikings to Conquistador in general though.

    Hi, I don't understand, 4 of my companions are starving. Even if I camp 4 times in a row, with enough rations and meat, and Eydis cooking, everytime I get the same message after camping : "4 of your companions have not eaten" ! Confusing....

    I had a similar problem. Eventually it went away, I don't know why.

    Word of advice: either ally yourself with one of the factions or go full fantasy heathen fag and conquer britain. The "prosperity" ending is very unsatisfying and you miss quite a bit of content.

    Also, it is possible to make an alliance with Mercia. One of the most obscure outcomes in the game actually.

    The type of wood doesn't really have any bearing on gameplay, outside a few random events.

    I wanted to ask this, but actually my question is if this game is in a PoE 3.0 type state, or ever going to be

    Just finished the Denmark campaign with the 1.05 patch and it makes a world of difference to stability. Entering town is no longer a coin toss to see whether the game will crash or not. Changes like the player bonus formation round and limits on skill progression are all for the better.
