    Yes, but only for exploration.

    Combat will be still top-down hex

    Maybe they took it too seriously because it was so cringy to read jokes in previous games.
    I don't know about the localization but in russian stupid jokes and debilistic wordplay intensify in Armored Princess beyond any limits.
    Also i believe there will be tongue-in-cheek moments in this new game.
    But whatever
    We don't have any HoMM on the horizon anyway.

    My second most anticipated game after Vagrus - The Riven Realms. Not many games let you run a slavery economical empire :obviously:.

    I doubt the RPG elements will be interesting.

    Should have just kept the charming style instead of trying to make it serious business and epic.

    I do hope that they are similar to the ones from the other games. They really had an addictive levelling system where you always had a next skill in mind,to get.

    What made the reboot special was how it introduced game mechanics over a period of time - each time a little more zany than the previous one (wives, babies, fighting against equipment, rage magicz), while doing so with good humour. Very nice way to ease you into things.

    The only retarded thing they did and never changed was the random loot. It was impossible to get a whole set,thus making them useless. it is the only thing that i hate about the game,should have been hand crafted/placed.

    The shoulder camera kills it for me, the wonky camera with trees hiding the loot from KB reboot was bad enough but if there is no top down view, they're not going to get my shekels!

    Is it really that hard to take 5 seconds to google something before making silly statements like this. King's Bounty was on Genesis and PS2 (oddly named as a HOMM game).

    This looks like a cross between Disciples 3 and Fantasy General.

    More and more often when I look at a price on a game's steam page, I'm genuinely not 100% sure if this is serious or is someone important on publisher's side retarded enough to actually joke about official pricing for some internal office prank.

    Pricing is regional, so not sure what you mean.

    It's half the price of a overpriced AAA, like Biomutant, over here.

    I don't know how it looks for you, but I'm still fairly certain it's blatantly overpriced for the kind of game it is and will sentence it to more obscurity than it possibly deserves.
