It does seem slightly curious that they are releasing an expansion about the Dungeon split from Sylvan ... without a Sylvan faction in the game?

I would like to note that we don't know that it is a single faction expansion. I doubt they would have two and not mention it, but it is a possibility.

Maybe this new faction will combine our known sylvan and dungeon somehow, Alci, since they have to split ingame?

@Miru
Yes we do.

@Vokial
That would make no sense. Following their split the two factions became.. incompatible with each other. The only thing they have in common is the unifying race, except dark elves carry the blessing of Malassa. And hear the voices



When I wrote the headline the other day I linked the general discussion thread instead of this one, in fact I don't think this one had been created yet. I have edited the link but I cannot move the general discussion's addon-related posts myself - it would be better if you reposted them here.

You do, or we do? Nothing I read said that it was the only faction, nor were there any statements directly implying that. Don't get me wrong, I'm think there isn't, but I didn't see the possibility denied.

It's called reading through the lines. There is no chance ubi would miss the opportunity to mention it, especially knowing it would lead to negative reactions. Apart from the fact that expecting more than one would be unrealistic in the first place.

indeed and it's ubi we are talking about! it's even like a miracle that there will be an expansion and a release date. one for now is enough given the circumstances.

I was disappointed (relatively) with vanilla, and I didn't bother getting the DLCs.

But this is great news. I feel like this is a new opportunity to give the franchise another chance. Yeah, you can argue they've been given numerous chances, even with all the in-company politics that had happened. But I'll always have a soft spot for MMH. It's influenced my childhood too much.

Standalone already huh?

...had I known, I wouldn't have bothered buying the original...however, it does kinda mean I'll probably wait till 3rd expansion instead.

& I thought the words used by Limbic? did not state Sim Turns and RMG couldn't be done...just present code makes it a little hard to implement...who knows how to read between some lines with some non-native English writers.

Those are two completly different issues two. The Xpack was a problem of resources, the Sim-Turns is a problem of the game code with potential to screw the game

looks like the faceless will be the champion of the dungeon,that probably means we won't get a dragon(unless we get one as a summonable creature,maybe even as an ultimate spell for one of the dungeon heroes).

I think it is sad that we're getting only one faction,but if I remember correct,it was originally planned to give us two factions through expansions and two through patches,so maybe they are still going with this system and we're getting the sylvan faction as a patch or at least dlc later and it gets a campaign in the next expansion which will feature the academy(the dwarves may be entirely left out or either patched like the elves)

I know it may be wishful thinking,but you never know.

A faction through a patch? When you get a 10-hour campaign of 2 maps for 10 euro? Funny man.

That plan to present user with factions through patches/free-dlc was stated by an employee of BlackHole. And since they've gone bankrupt and aren't involved anymore, that plan went out the window.
Honestly, it amazes me how often you see that particular bit of false information return. Even though it has become well known for quite some time that both BlackHole is bankrupt and not working on the game or anything for that matter, as well as the fact that this was never confirmed by Ubisoft.

Why does everyone seem to think that faceless will dethrone the blackies anyway?

Because of the statement made way back that we would not see Dragons return as champions. Though one would think now, certainly in line with Julien's remark, that this was focussed solely on the Vanilla.

One Faction per expansion would be ok if they released like 4 expansion packs, and the content of each pack was worth the cost. Low cost, or high content. Not that they would ever be that reasonable.

I can't write about 2 separate things in 1 post? one about standalone, second about the words "reading through the lines"? [I was just mildly curious because it seems VIPs & others gave the impression elsewhere of no ST or RMG even after 3rd expansion, but <shurgs>]

Cause dragons are not that original anyways, black dragons, red dragons, pink dragons with blue stripes... it's good that they didn't go with that dragon spam thingy
The faceless on the other hand are kinda new and original and they look awesome. I hope the other Dungeon units would be on par with them, any rumors on what creatures can we expect to see in the roster?
