    This shows that they are great spies, doing it all in an open, convincing people that being spied on it's not a big deal are signs of spies extraordinaire .

    I have WL3 installed... but I can't be bothered to play for an hour and then replay everything again in 2 months. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That must be the alpha tier. Beta tier is 28 dollars and above.

    The final game is being released in two months, so I'll play it then.

    It works on W7.
    It has a party initiative and party turn. Like BG 3. AFAIR in W2 every party member had her own turn.
    Six party members max (instead of seven as it was in W1 and W2).
    Smart Ass skill is removed. Some other skills are renamed or removed. Some new are added.
    There are perks which are tied only to skills.
    There are quirks and biographies.
    You create only two characters in the beginning. But then after the tutorial mission you can create more.
    Graphics is good. Writing is edgy.
    The atmosphere works for me.
    Quests are so-so.
    Gameplay-wise it's good enough.
    I like W3's combat more than W2's even if I hate this party initiative/turn thing.
    Skillchecks are now deterministic and fixed.
    The inventory is shared.

    Int/Cha seems as wildly ahead of the rest of the core stats(save Luck to an extent) as WL 2 at a glance---Cha perhaps even more vs 2's implementation. I guess it'll have to come down to the fine grain of skills and perks/quirks to avoid falling into the same build traps as WL 2 in the full release.

    To be more precise: up to 4 selfmade members, usually two NPC members PLUS the vehicle in some battles.

    Thanks. I saw all those screenshots of 3 Rangers + Scotchmo and I was starting to think it would be a 3+1 game.

    To be fair, this looks like heavy streamlining.

    How do you guys feel about the deterministic versus rolled skill checks? I'll admit to save scumming some skill checks in W2, but not that often. On the other hand, deterministic skill checks might make me hoard skill points until I know what the checks are, like in Age of Decadence. How does it feel in the game? Also, any more thoughts on character building? How does it feel compared to the original?

    Deterministic feels better in the case of W2 and W3 comparison.

    I've not played enough to talk about character building, but in W2, 3 of my 4 characters had similar combat abilities, except my skill guy. I think that W3 will be safer to make more varied builds.

    I'm fine with deterministic checks. Be an adult, face what life gives you

    oh wait, this is a game actually

    yet somehow still fine with this

    I don't have time in my life for reloading saves. A good game should still be interesting if you fail a check...

    The IGN preview mentions that despite all the omnipresent white particle shader effects that threaten to slow my PC to a crawl, the weather and environment don't seem to be a factor in tactical nature of the game's battles. Now that can't be true, since in one earlier preview on Fig I read that snow in fact affect accuracy. I mean, with all the snow and blizzard, one would think that there'd be some survivalist elements where at least the shooting and movement are affected...I'm not asking for some mandatory hot cocoa chugging here.

    Is it because it is in fact all snow and nothing but snow outside, that the shooting mechanics will not model any event not under extreme weather? How about battles that happen in the interior? Near source of fire?

    I'm currently playing Jagged Alliance 2 and that game seems to have rain, storm, thunderstorm, dust storm, and snow that effect one's targeting, coupled with a day night cycle and climate ranges. And it was released over twenty years ago. Could I expect a little more environment modeling in a tactical turn based game set in snowy Colorado aside from pretty shaders and sounds, is it too much to ask?
