    The third of Kingdom Come: Deliverance's four DLCs, Band of Bastards, is out today. It's a combat-focused adventure where Henry joins up with a band of rowdy mercenaries to deal with Bohemia's bandit infestation problem. Alongside it, Warhorse have also released the "Combat Academy" documentary video that was promised in last year's DLC roadmap. It joins the game's Making Of documentary that they released in December. Here are the trailers for today's releases:


    You can grab Band of Bastards on Steam or GOG for $8, which is $2 cheaper than the previous DLCs. I guess that makes sense, coming a year after the original game launched. You can read about the DLC's accompanying Patch 1.8.1 here.

    I wonder if the price drop reflects the amount of content in the DLC. Not sure if I want to pick it up or wait until it's reduced by the end of the year/during the Summer Sale.

    Dealing with bandit infestations? Sounds like half of the base game. :M

    More likely it reflects the flak they caught with the last DLC, mainly coz of a bug that shortened the plot.

    The whole thing is retarded anyways, people pay this kind of money for a hat or a gun paint but they think it's too much for a piece of content that took dozens of designers and actors several months to make.

    People who pay for guns and hats are very likely different people than those that play games like KCD. And in the KCD realm, people are spoiled (rightly so) by Hearts of Stone/Blood and Wine, which are incomparably more "bang for bucksy" than KCD DLCs.

    But there was plenty of grumbling about that too. There must've been a hundred pages of complaints across several GOG threads about the announcement of those DLCs. These included absurd accusations that CD Projekt had held back content from the main game, waited six months, and then repackaged it as expansions.

    Just goes to show its not merely the gormless idiots who spend £5.99 on the colour blue that we have to worry about. Some people couldn't recognise a good deal if their lives depended on it.

    Sure, but after they played them, very few people were still bitching.

    That has to be the least exciting premise to anything in a long time.
