I do not think so it is gonna be terrain system but I hope it will be something good because it is alrrady pass time, @Duh_TaleWorlds, @mexxico do you guys know something about itI'm wondering the same. Surely one would think it won't be too long considering TW seems to have released a patch each month on average.
Hopefully the next patch has a major addition -- such as spear bracing and the terrain system/keep battles -- or a major improvement, such as armor damage model, siege pathfinding, influence actually mattering in voting, or lance cavalry AI targeting. These issues have mostly been around since launch and desperately need fixing.
And if they really have no interested in adding voice over then they should remove the istiana's voice over as well because it is gonna looked very weird for tge playes who is playing it for first time.The devs seem swamped by urgent tasks and are late with everything they do. That state of mind is not conducive to looking for ways to improve the game. If you stepped into their studio and said "I think voice overs would add a lot to the game", they would stare at you as if you were at a wrong address, despite being completely right. They just want to finish this and not make more work for themselves.
Wait, that's reality and reality = bad.
I mean, the devs would welcome your suggestion and take time to hire a good writer to write a novel-worth of interesting and original dialogs, then hire a voice casting agency that will find the right talent and finally record the voice overs in a professional studio under direction of the talented game designer Armagan himself.
There's so much potential here! Maybe they already made this and will surprise us in the next patch! This must be the reason why it is delayed!
Having voice over in bannerlord will improve the game a lot. Right now the npc are kinda dull and olayers don't like to stroll around castle/town/villages and onky having istinana for voice over in one quest seems very weirdThey are being coy about voiceovers and don't want to say they won't do it. But I think they won't - it's expensive, takes time and poor voice acting is worse than no voice acting. Besides, dialogs are roundly ignored as a point of improvement.
But if you prefer good news because you can't take reality, I've heard they hired Keanu Reeves to voice player responses and a whole bunch of B-listers to voice various peasants, nobles, horses etc. It's going to be great! This game has so much potential! Just give them time!
