    A feature that is best turned off.
    I mean there is contract that can spawn siege but settlements can go puff as their HP is tied to attached location and their garrison is easily wiped as they all lack fortification(where my city defense maps?) and allies not support each other(they spawn hundreds troops in noble war but undead or green invasion they don't give a fuck).
    I would say that is all tied to fucked up economy system and one contract at time(with contracts spawning stuff).
    >oh player earn to much money from contracts and from loot
    >let lower contract pay a lot
    >they still earn to much cash from loot
    >lets make that enemies don't drop all items on death
    >oh now players struggle
    >well increase spawn rate of enemies and their lairs
    >now they level too fast
    >lets increase level caps and add levels over 11(with no chance to hire experienced troops) then so reaching end game will take longer
    All lead to plenty of battles that have little influence of global map and increased grind that minimize risk taking.
    Instead of rarer battles when player can take a risks and take losses. Making events happening originally on global map but with enough time for player to react to them would be ideal.
    >anyway, will we get new battle maps?

    And even if it's a small thing, being able to better influence the colour of your Brothers' equipment is something I always wanted.

    I hope it won't trade the mercenary for a Witcher vibe, but it's still welcome that they didn't abandon the game. I'd have preferred an expansion of the low-fantasy elements, but still will buy the DLC. Hopefully they will flesh out the vague announcements like "new possibilities", "exploration" a bit more in the dev diaries.

    Hopefully they implement the interior tilesets from the early screenshots/concepts.

    Wolfmother was a prequel novella.

    Show Spoiler
    It is heavily implied that the kid - whose name keeps going unnamed - is the captain in BB. At the end of BB another man takes command and he's known as a 'brash' leader who often goes into situations headfirst. His first order is to go seeking a certain brigand in the nearby areas.


    I'm considering expanding the pre-BB universe through novellas or novels, particularly on the events concerning the Battle of Many Names which was an apocalyptic event for the setting.

    Game will be 100% moddable.
    Why? Because they will introduce beasts.

    Beast-->Polar Bear-->Knut-->You can edit CNUT files now

    Everything sounds pretty good to me. A few days ago the game was abandoned and now we are getting a free patch and a full expansion.

    sser any idea how much will be added in terms of expanding the late game crisis and adding more "objectives" so to speak? New enemies/variety will improve the game a lot sure, but endgame is one of the things really needing improvement.

    The beast hunting sounds cool but I wonder if it will really be the worth the risk. Given the length of time it takes to develop a quality bro, do you really want to risk them against a Yeti? It could be new exercise of the 3-skull contract problem.

    I'm glad we're getting new content though. Will be a D1P for me unless the price is outrageous.

    They said you'll be able to craft stuff to equip your Bros with from the beasts.

    Since hunting for new gear is the main motivation for many players (maybe after beating all crises), fighting those things will be more rewarding than taking a random three skull contract.

    Cool stuff. In particular I'd love to see more events, special areas, unusual items, that actually matter - the little vignettes we have now are delightful to read but almost negligible for gameplay.

    Bitch please, it took me one second to find an interview where they stated that they were burned out. I also remember other places where they stated that.

    My bet is, their new game (which might be way better than Phoenix Point regarding inventory and gameplay) is taking longer than expected.
    Which means they are running out of money.
    Maybe they are getting tired of development again (which resulted in a lot of scrapped gameplay elements on the release of BB).

    As had been said several times, BB could haven been a great game, an instant classic, if they had included and fleshed out all they had planned.

    That being said still looking forward to the DLC, but I rather do not get over-hyped, as the last time I was, they didn't deliver.

    Reason for BB DLC might also be that they think that market for modern/sci-fi tactical games is way more saturated than fantasy genre.

    True, personally I would rather see them developing their new game, than going back to BB, after a year, after stating no DLC's.

    The sad part is, I do think they are talented.
    I hope they do not mess up, again.

    They are not burned out anymore. At least what I have been told. They are glad to be doing BB stuff again.

    Only time will tell how quickly they get burned out again (or already are with their new game).

    You say it like getting burned out is some kind of unusual crime that only the particularly weak-willed are susceptible to.

    Well, it's a bit different now since they are working on the game as a studio and not doing stuff in their spare time after work.

    Well you are not going to become a marathon man (or iron man) or anything else (successful) if you quit early.
    Also the game industry is a fucking though business with lots of expected overtime.
    You have to be strong willed (and passionate).
    They have quit early once (upsetting a lot of their fans).
    People have pre-orderd their game as they trusted them to make the game they talked in detail about in their excellent dev-blogs.
