    Fextralife streaming early access rn. From the 10 mins I've watched so far it does look interesting. Keeping an eye on that.

    Intro reminds me of the battle for the Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings. A lot.

    Playing it now, so far so good. Combat is fairly typical but it does cover most bases...positioning/backstabbing, ap utilization, overwatch, ap saving, line of sight, etc. The only aspect I haven't seen is elevation yet, no idea if that plays any role or if there's any maps that have different elevations at all.

    Obviously haven't gotten that far yet but looking over the character sheets each character does seem to have a ton of customization options for leveling in addition to items (weapons, armor, trinkets, etc). There's also a really interesting 4-way morality system. You have righteous vs tyrant, and on the other axis old gods vs Christianity. Depending on your choices you go in either of those directions, and looking over it you can unlock new heroes and bonuses, and heroes of opposite morality with leave you as well.

    Not sure how many knights are available exactly (at least in EA) but the portrait ui at the bottom of the screen seems to indicate 12 (yeah yeah, 12 knights of the round table lol).

    Your base is Camelot and there's a HOMM style system where you re-build it over time and get access to new services.

    I like the graphics and tone of the game, it's dark and the VO are fine.

    *edit*

    Okay...first bad part...EA is two campaign missions and takes ~1 hour. There are side missions to play through though so at this point no idea how many hours of content is here but it seems like a fairly small vertical slice. You also get 6 knights for EA.

    Anyways overall I really like it so far and think it's going to be a good game, I just think it may be too light on content in it's current form for most folks.

    *edit 2*

    Should have read the announcement, here's what's included:

    This Early Access version contains 2 story missions, 8 additional points of interests, 7 heroes from 4 classes (with a progression cap of level 5), 3 buildings to build and upgrade in Camelot, and an intro cinematic.

    Based on what I've played so far that's maybe 4 hours of content.

    If it plays anything like the previous games, there were more than 12 knights, but 12 was the max that you could recruit. Which was interesting because they could still leave you if you pissed them off in the late game, when there were no more recruiting options. Looks like they've gone a step further here in that they can permanently die as well. :incline:

    -I hope the Green Knight is in this game. Somebody should ask them how they handle death for him here - since he could sever his head in the first game and still live.

    Another thing wanted to mention, at least from what I've seen so far, is it's not crammed with SJW shit. Most of the knights are dudes so far, and the ones in heavy armor/melee are all dudes. The only chick I have so far is an archer which is cool. Seems a ton of RPG's these days make females into all the stronk tanks/melee which is retarded, and the dude into broken and whiney support characters.

    Was reading the steam forums and one of the devs said there would be 30 heroes:

    "On the other hand, you will be able to control more than 30 heroes and each of them will have their unique traits and appearance!:)"

    Looks p. cool. I'll most likely buy EA to support the development.

    Well, archery does requires lots of strength (longbows) but not as much endurance as running around in heavy armor.

    You can see Joe Gibbs, one of the few people alive today that can shoot a 160lb longbow at full draw, shooting in this video (around 13:30 mark):



    He looks like he could crush things between his shoulder blades.

    The concept of female archers is much easier to pass compared to a female knight. Mostly because of Diana/Artemis/Amazons. By the way, don't expect hyper-realism from the game. King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame had a few female knights, so it's not unlikely that we'll see some in this game as well.

    In reality, in the 5th and 6th centuries it would have been far more likely to find a female knight or a female archer than to find a female that was able to read.

    There were no knights in 5th or 6th century.

    Arthurian stories are set in the late 5th, early 6th century.
