Looking at Viking Conquest again, i remember the hair animations. So far, looking at the videos, it looks like the hair is static. Wonder if they plan on adding hair animation.

Q: You know there had been many successful modifications for the game, and one of the best known is the Strategus – cRPG, which allows the players to have some sort of multiplayer campaign. Will there be any feature like that in the game to come?
A: at this stage a multiplayer, competitive or cooperative looks still pretty difficult to make.

I want to know what stage they said this at... was it a recent interview, or something from 2 or 3 years back? Since a functional co-op campaign would have quite the positive feedback on it if it were also confirmed..
 
That interview was from ages ago. Obviously they've come far since then, since they more or less confirmed multiplayer in that press release yesterday.
 
I really don't think Bannerlord needs professional voice acting for entire conversations. It's already perfect in Warband with text and the occasional "WOTS THIS THEN AYE?" and "IT'S ALMOST HARVESTING SEASON".

I agree that it doesn't need voice acting to be good but it'll surely rise the immersion bar in the game so in my end it's a welcome addition :smile:

Yeah, personally I find VA to generally be UN-IMMERSIVE for one main reason. no matter what VA you get, they don't really sound like people from that era. Either it's a british accent from wales, new york accent, plain american accent, yorkish accent, none of the people are truely convincing enough to be "immersive". it's just a convenience, for when you dont feel like reading.

the most immersive dialogue ive found is from Zelda OOC or MM. small clips of sounds the characters make to give you info on the kind of person they are. then you have a voice to put the text to in your imagination. after that it becomes jarring. As much as i love IT"S ALMOST HARVESTING SEASON and WE'RE NAUGHT BUT HUMBLE FARMING FOLK (in the only irish accent in the game) these are pastiches which quickly become tedious.
 
Something I found very interesting in the B footage video was the fighting scene, the 2nd looter that was killed seemed to quickly raise his dagger for a block right before the player swung, we heard a clang and the looter was knocked to the ground, and in battle feed we read "Looter knocked unconscious", this is incontrast to his first kill which was a direct hit.

Interesting, so we might be able to harm entities through a block.

edit; Watching in 0.25 he didn't block, was identical to dying except for the different falling animation (likely still used for death).

I have a feeling they're not showing much of combat for a reason. That stuff is probably not set in stone just yet.

yeah from what i have seen from these videos they have showed so far, i think it will still take many years before the games is released :sad:

Doesn't matter if they show anything else. Just show something.

Yeah. Anyway, we need combat scene. If it is same with Warband, yes don't show it. Add some new fighting skills, movements and animations. Block system, not a combo system but something like that... I mean just change it.
I think game needs 1 or 1.5 years to release. It's for games health.

The rivals stand side by side pondering on which company will release their medieval extremely hyped game first
