OMG :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

It would be nice to know what old issues are going to be addressed in the new expansion beside adding in the new stuff.
We have quite a few things that come up frequently whenever the game is tinkered with. Are those problems going to be fixed, maybe even with partial re-coding?

@Fatshark_Hedge
Will the beta be an extra branch besides the normal game, so i need to have some extra space?

Thx

You know, I can understand the introduction of the Weave game mode is supposed to be the main selling point and thus is the cause for the naming of the expansion, but after watching the cinematic trailer (great job on that, by the way, it does the Beastmen race so much justice), the title of the expansion just feels a bit… off.

The cinematic trailer obviously puts the Beastmen in the spotlight, but I think it should’ve at least made some hints here and there towards the Weave mode or just magic in general, because without it, “Winds of Magic” wasn’t really the first thing that crossed my mind after seeing it.

A name such as “The Children of Chaos” or something akin to that would line up better with the trailer (and not just because a child was the main character shown), as well as the introduction of the Beastmen as a faction. Winds of Magic seems, to me, like it’s trying to convey that magic is going to play a major role, but it doesn’t really beyond the aforementioned Weave game mode.

I’m almost tempted to say that this expansion pack should have been split in two, one for the Beastmen, and one for the Weave mode. Would certainly have allowed for some of the content to reach us sooner, but that’s just my opinion, of course, and I am fully aware that it’s far too late in the development process to make any changes.

On a side-note, I don’t know if it’s just an error on my side, but the beta sign-up link isn’t working.

It was posted on Reddit that the WoM will be a remaster of the game and will require the game to be completely redownloaded. But, it will drastically cut down on the file size as all the previous DLCs will be combined into the new game files. So that there isn’t multiple files for the same textures and enemies, etc. At least that’s how I interpreted it, I’m sure the Devs can clear this up.

Edit:
Your link is “wrong”

Great beast tongue

Will this child of chaos be someone special in game?

Last bit of the trailer is from in game. Here we see the Bestigor for the first time but what map is that? Athel with the wind of fire?

From the store site its said that there will be 1 new adventure level. So maybe from there because i cannot remember any map where trees are positioned in such a form.

Awesome!
Well in that case a hulk of warpstone from space could do that to the trees.
I guess then that’s the same one as the trailer so blue, white and red I guess something in Middenland but the red…
It’s stated that it is in Reikland so I’m gonna hunt for the exact town now.

this is one of those games that i wish i can preorder. (probably the only game aside from WoW expansions L_L…)

I had no problem subscribing and verifying my subscription.

i wonder, what are chances to get into the beta test wave. Are you going to choose randomly?

Aww August ?! Well guess i have to hope for the chance to get into a beta :smiley:

Is the anticipated release date for Consoles also in August, or projected to be further out?
