    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.

    Great!

    I think following are worthy ideas to consider:

    Expeditions: (Ant)Arctics, give it a Cthulhu mythos touch by combining Amundsen + Beyond the mountains of madness
    Expeditions: Congo; Make it about Solomon's mines in Congo, take inspiration from the original and the Michael Chrichton book.
