our hopes and wishes for historical titles?
This game really seems to have everything. Reading the features is like reading a laundry list of what I wish would be in a historical total war game.
Family tree ✓
No agent spam ✓
Multiple ways to win, go tall, go wide, go historically ✓
Indepth upgradable characters ✓
Real Sieges ✓
More diplomatic options ±✓ could have had more.
Realistic recruitment based on kingdom size✓
Multiple small armies rather than doomstacks✓
More advanced economy✓
Global recruitment and mustering✓
Pay enemies or be paid by enemies to leave✓
There still is much that could be a let down like insanely fast battles or AI that gets to ignore all the cool features that were added, but I really am feeling good about this title.
I am very interested in hearing more details about the minor settlements.
