This has me as excited as the old Heroes of Might and Magic expansions for the 2nd and 3rd game. 29th is a Thursday so buying my wife plane tickets so she can visit her parents on that weekend.

That means around April 2019 it will be patched into a relatively "quality of lifey"-state.

Something like a Great Chaos Dragon releasing its minions endlessly unto the world. Until a battle-hardened band of Battle Brothers dared to enter the Great Chaos Dragon's lair and attacked the enormous beast. The battle was so ferocious that the Battle Brothers successfully pelted the beast with arrows and stuck their weapons into its 'hide'. Everybody was wheezing, panting, gasping for breath.

Then the beast stirred, raised its head and yawned. After some scratching it shook itself, sending the arrows and weapons flying around. It finally recognized the trespassers with a surprised snort. Then the large monster realized that it had been attacked and began laughing so hard the whole cave shook and the tired Battle Brothers feared the entire lair will collapse. When the Great Chaos Dragon finished laughing, it snatched up each idiot adventurer and ate them all. They tasted like rotten pizza. The worst part of this wretched breakfast was, the dragon still felt hungry..

Battle Brothers has always been very stable. I had very few bugs during early access. Battle Brothers was one game that you could play at release and I have faith Beasts and Exploration will be the same.

For end game you can try to destroy the Black Monolith. That place is evil and gets harder as the game goes on.

I'm not asking for difficulty. I'm asking for a story conclusion. I prefer the game tells a story but i might be in a minority here.

I too prefer games with story, and I'm sure most people here do. And I don't like rogue-like/lite or pure sandbox games. I like having a purpose and a direction in games.

But Battle Bros is just too good to be ignored (I almost did!).
There's nothing else to say to defend this game. It's just sooooo good!

I really hope this DLC sells well. Than maybe they can do another DLC or make the game moddable. Better yet, they decide to make Battle Brothers 2.

Development on Battle Brothers is concluded with today’s update – although we’ll of course continue to provide bugfixes, as necessary. We have a very good idea of the game we want to create next, and we’re enthusiastic to get started. It won’t be Battle Brothers 2, but if you enjoyed playing Battle Brothers, chances are good you’ll really enjoy our next game, too. We look forward to tell you all about it in the future. It’ll even have legs!
