    Bit of both. What we choose is not up to me, but Viking definitely appealed to my inner Dane.

    Let's hope for less barrel smashing in the next game. I liked the HOMM style of the first one better than the RPG style of the second game.

    Dumping Unity for the 3rd game would probably be a plus. I'd love to see Expeditions: Zulu but I'm guessing they're going to avoid anything remotely controversial now that they're under the big publisher umbrella.

    Their games don't try to be historicly accurate ( which i like), so if they make a game about Africa they will give you the chance to be nice to the locals like in Conquistadors.

    If they do Africa, then I would like to see Expeditions: Congo. Although my first choice would be Expeditions: Vandal.

    It'll probably be set in China. Huge market, a decent setting (plenty of stuff to take from "Il Milione").

    If this was not "historical" historical series, Journey to the West with more historical flavor could be cool.

    Russian conquest of Siberia could also be a fun campaign. And they can reuse all the snowy assets from Viking to boot.

    EIR is the obvious choice of course.

    Somehow Rome excites me even less than Vikings - probably because Rome was the subject of far too many boring high school history lessons, while Vikings were not.
    Well, I'm actually going to Rome for Christmas, maybe I'll change my mind after the trip.

    V_K , I recommend some reading on the Punic Wars to get the blood flowing.

    Carthage was my pet army back when i first wanted to get into ancient wargaming. The Punic Wars are a great read.

    I recommend this book if you wanna get in the mood. Although it’s mostly Carthage based, it’s still a good way to get flavor. It’d be like reading a book about Orks if you were gonna play a Space Marine army vs Orks in WH40k.

    Too late, the damage's already done :lol:
    Besides, I'm not very interested in wars anyway.

    The game will most likely be about the expeditions in Gallia or Germania. It will be fun putting all those barbarians to the gladius!

    I cannot wait for all those female Centurians and Senators that will show how progressive Rome was.

    That's actually a valid point. It's not entirely impossible to imagine female battle leaders in Viking culture or in late Renaissance, whatever the manlets here say, but in Rome where they weren't even given personal names? Gonna be harder to spin. Unless of course the game is the fall of Rome and you're playing for the Germanic tribes.
