After being welcomed with open arms to the PC community, Logic Artsists' Expeditions: Conquistador is seeing a follow-up with Expeditions: Viking in April.
Already coming out of a testing with strong feedback, the team has decided to push its initially projected release date back a little to give their partners more time to localise the game into more languages.
Now releasing in English, French, German, Russian and Polish, Logic Artists and their distribution partners IMGN.PRO and EuroVideo hopes the sudden larger scope will allow for a more diverse playbase going forward. With over 200,000 words of branching dialogue being beefed up to 280,000, it's only natural to understand that things may take a little more time.
Speaking through the press release, the game's Producer - Ali Emek - said: "We received great feedback from the testers after our last closed beta session, and rescheduling the release a bit is allowing us to spend our final weeks of development on improving usability and addressing the bugs reported during the beta test,". And that's exactly what they're doing. The extra run-up to the April 27 release date has given them the time to tweak some balance and combat elements, polish animations and give some of its villains a little more firepower.
Once Expeditions: Viking launches toward the end of April, you'll be able to pick it up on Steam, GOG, Gamersgate and the Humble Store. You might even find a few physical copies in store, too. What ever happened to Desura?
