Sounds good but once again a trailer only shows CG, and not game-play.

A whole minute to show only an ouroboroslike emblem?
Gimme a break…

The studio and game site have absolutely no details about the game. It uses Unreal, sure, but for all I know it may look and play like Heroes of Might and Magic 7.

It uses Unreal Engine 4.

The main news is that they are using the Praedor setting, which is very popular in Finland:
Praedor is a Finnish Sword & Sorcery / Medieval European Fantasy franchise started by the acclaimed graphic novelist, Petri Hiltunen in 1986. Set in the world of Jaconia, a circular region of land around the size of India, surrounded by the seemingly infinite cursed earth of Borvaria, it has inspired multitudes of graphic novels, short stories, novels, as well as a tabletop RPG over the decades from a number of Finnish fantasy novelists. The titular Praedors are adventurers who dare to explore beyond the boundaries of Jaconia and seek forgotten treasures from the ancient ruins of Borvaria. They are widely seen as dishonourable scoundrels, but their freedom from Jaconia's strict social caste system makes them desirable pawns in power plays far from the boundaries of the cursed earth.

Unfortunately, in spite of the writers' efforts, the franchise is yet to receive translations outside the country, making Praedor a case of No Export for You for English-speaking consumers.

Finland… No export… Didn't they mean Rare Export(s)?

Anyway, they've translated 3 Praedor short graphic novels and anyone can read them at their site (PDF):

What a bizarre video, all that, just for an emblem. No gameplay, no nothing.

Ah well, kudo's to RPGWatch for being the first to cover this new game. That's why I hang out here, you guys find games that the other game sites have never heard of (or can't be bothered covering). Keep it up
