Good God, just stop pooping these out and make a sequel. I loved the last one and those before it, but this is stretching it a bit thin.

Warriors of the North was the first game that I haven't finished in the series - I was playing on hard of course and after 271 hours and several patches that made your saved games obsolete I just gave up… I spent more time with The Legend, Armored Princess and quite a while with Crossroads as well, but latest one was steam only with bugs and that just killed the fun. I will wait for this dlc until XMas 2014 when it will be properly patched…
And like others are saying - please drop this almost 10 year old engine and make the sequel!!!

"Snow Elves" ? Looks like copied from TDE.

Instead of the fourth game, a DLC.
And out in 2014. when 346534825623785423854238 standalone games are being released including 1c's Nuclear Union?
I refuse to buy it!

Yes I know I'll buy it in the end, but definetly not instantly.

Yeah I was a huge KB fan boy too, but somehow I just couldn't get into Warriors of the North. I never quite figured out what the problem was, whether it wasn't as good or if I had just had enough of KB. I figure it was probably a combination of the two. Either way, I have to agree that at this point it's time to change things up a little.

I have the same feeling. Played the others all the way through, but let go of WotN after a while. Might pick up this expansion and try again though, they really are good games.

Always nice to have a new KB. But it is once more an expansion and it is only a Steam sales price worthy.

Two games was enough on this engine already. Bring us KB 2 instead!

WOTN just wasn't as good, many of the good things about the previous games were removed, for me quest xp and shrines not scaling as in the other games was just a complete fail. Also having flight from near the start wasn't ideal. Finally it's never been patched properly…

I dunno I'll give this a try I guess, 20 hours seems very short though, normally the others lasted for hundreds of hours!

Since WOTN wasn't properly patched, I suspect this DLC will have even less effort spent on it.
