    Finished! Britain has been crushed and my legacy is secure. Upon meeting the required Power resource I was half dreading an abrupt cutscene signalling the end of the game, but to my surprise I was able to take part in the invasion. Glad to say the improved stability does extend to the second campaign. If anyone has been tentatively nibbling their credit card waiting for Expeditions: Viking to reach a playable state, now's a good time to pull the trigger.

    The next patch 1.0.6 is going up for beta testing soon. It'll include more customization options, support for custom portraits and support for custom random events, and a few other things as well as hopefully fixing the last crashing issues (We had to update the engine for this, which is why it's taking longer). The new difficulty settings and ironman will be in 1.0.7.

    Managed to run it on my cousin's system.
    Damned good fun Bros.
    Dane-axes are the shit. My Viking of 10 10 1 4 4 stats can mow down most archers, berserkers and spearfaggots in a single blow. Had only two hard fights so far though, logic and grainne.

    The new patch(BETA - 1.6) sure is sweet. I guess right now the game is pretty close to being in a "finished" state.

    My opinion hasn't changed. I dislike the viking setting but the game is so good I am going to replay it.

    Bought it on release, but will most probably only start playing the 1.07 version.

    Make it the best as possible, aye!

    I finished it twice on normal, it's an enjoyable game but way too easy (when I find it easy, that means it's seriously easy). BTW, there is a huge difference in number of quests in Picts vs Northumbria. I liked Picts better so found it very dissatisfying that I have very limited number of quests to complete for them which was also reflected in reputation. By the time I was done crushing Northumbria, I still had higher rep with them than Picts.

    20 hours in the game. Very decent. One of the best games of 2017 (could be my GOTY if there were no Persona 5) and much better than TToN.

    We haven't broken even yet, but in time we're confident we'll get there. We're not ready to talk about what's next, but the next game is already in pre-production.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's something different, like what they did with Clandestine, but maybe an RPG.

    In hindsight, Clandestine was an insane thing to do and I doubt we'll make that big a departure again.

    Wow, I helped picts crush Northumbia and missed almost all the Northumbian quests. The only thing left is Althing. I tried to finish the game but I felt underleved and poorly equipped under siege (though I had no problems in any prior fights). I still have several months till the deadline. Are there any ways to gain more experience/get better equipment/get any help during the siege?

    That happened to me in my first playthrough. I don't think there's opportunity to level... but you can still earn $$ by pillaging churches (I believe all of them belong to Northumbria) and win the game by enough prosperity or you can buy scrapes to upgrade weapons/armour before heading to Althing.

    Have you done the quest involving the stone slabs that you find across the continent? Completing it gets you the best sword in the game. In general you can improve upon all your equipment by just gathering salvage and hides and crafting (assuming you have a unit with max crafting skills).

    If you've done all sidequests for the Picts I doubt you're really underleveled. Combat in this game is too easy and the final battles are not particularly hard anyway. Just make sure every one of your people has a weapon and armor equipped because one of the final battles will involve all of them. Use the extra time to gather resources so you can finish upgrading your village (get either prosperity or power as high as you can).

    Finished the game yesterday. The hardest fight was the one when you defend your village after Althing. Though after upgrading the fence it became much easier. Final battles were a joke.

    Fun game overall. Once again :salute: to Avonaeon and everyone in Logic Artists.

    Thank you! After we release 1.0.6, the next patch (1.0.7) will focus on an extra difficulty slider, as well as some other quality of life stuff, like being able to turn off the camera following enemies and increasing the combat speed.

    Heh. It was much needed, but too late for me.

    So far the best RPG of the year. We'll see how Larian does.

    Hmmm i might play this year from release, given how much patching they do. Still i hope they will somehow replace the trashy loot barrels -looting all of skane[the first danish city on the south in act 1] was fucking abysmal.
