I'm not.
"Gather your party" it says. But for what? They could at least have mock us with "to venture forth".

Looks like the graphics have improved from DOS1? Great. I'll be playing this with my friends after we play Destiny 2 together.

Are those cut scene views meant to indicate that we'll have full camera control and be able to look skyward?

That trailer feels so old school (as in BG/Icewind Dale trailer are). I love it.

Also, I believe this is our first glimpse at the Undead (origin).

The visuals look like a significant improvement over D:OS. Overall, it looks really good.

I've still never done a full playthrough of the first game. Maybe I'll play them back to back.

Whoa! I was expecting this to be good, and it looks ruddy fantastic - better than I expected! The only problem is that my expectations have now been set to 11. I'm really looking forward to this.

I suppose a barrel is better than a bush..? I had hoped they'd killed it too. Can't wait to play though!

Tbh in the specific scenario shown in the trailer hiding in a barrel might indeed make sense.
But generally I think that hiding/sneaking is to complex to be shown concretely in a video game like this, so it should be shown abstractly in a less silly way.

Absolutely! Now I'll have to wait for the mod that gets rid of that silliness!

Speak for yourself. I adored the trolling the audience with bushes, barrels are okay with me too.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 lets you play as a skeleton
Of course I'll do it, but I guess no romance for me…

Great trailer. Visually stunning and the combat looks fun. Not sure though if it will hold my interest to the end - I still haven't finish the first one because fun combat alone wasn't enough for me. Needs something more…

It even has a watcher NPC in it, created by the backers of our fundraiser.
