What do people think will appear at Gamescon mainly in the single player regarding "a wide range of screenshots and videos covering most aspects of the game" that have been promised.

For instance I think that we will get more information regarding the late game that they have been drip feeding us.

Here is a poll, https://www.strawpoll.me/17977495
 
I don't think those promo materials are aimed at dev blog readers (who'd like to see late game stuff etc.), but at the general public (who'd like to see big explosions viking porn and gore).
If they are getting extra attention for announcing a release date there, they'll make pretty stuff for the articles capturing the essence of "visceral mass combat", "the thrill of a mounted cavalry charge", "nerdgasmic perk systems" etc.

Same boring **** as the previous years, with an unnanounced date for beta or release date. Some more eye candy regarding graphics. Nothing new at all is what I expect.

I fear this too

So what I expect differs greatly from what I hope for  :roll:

Though i don't care about MP, I do want a Beta date announcement.

Also, an Early Access date (or ballpark) date. I.E. 3 months after Beta starts we'll announce an early access date. I'd settle for that.

Just show me a scripted thing like PC Gamer did, where the player is defending a castle being sieged. Fight in the siege but have the player character die and the castle is lost. Show the new system of taking over a family member as your new character. New character is either a scoundrel (to show off new criminal system) or trader (to show new trade mechanics).

There you go TW I laid it out for you. Get that epic siege for all the normies and then the new in-depth stuff for us nerds.

Well, that makes three of us... :roll:
A release date and end this suffering once and for all.  :lol:

I feel I should point out that it's Gamescom. My prediction is a more polite way of what 578 said, essentially. I would put money against hearing a release date, lots of it in fact, and I am doubtful that we will even be given the start date of the beta.

And all of that with the excuse of ''We dont want to give too much away''. At least I hope they let the players create their avatars to see the progress there.

1. When they are going to announce a date, they are going to do it at a place like Gamescom or E3 for maximum publicity.
2. MP beta is coming soon, so a release is less than a year away. (it was 6 months for Warband between the beta and the release)
3. ???
4. They are announcing it at Gamescom.

As in the past three years, I believe we will get a release date on this year's Gamescom :shifty:
Code:
Surely, this time it has to happen...

I certainly look forward to tasty videos, some unexpected bugs and a hope of releasing a release date by mid-november. Which means: I expect nothing. Expect nothing, and you can never be disappointed.

HOPE™
