[quoteIt seems that a couple of necessary adjustments and fixes made the initial release date highly improbable, so they decided to make the delay really count to give everything a little bit more polish. There won't be any new additions (although I've no idea, whether there will maybe another MP map or something in addition to those that are already in), but we currently hope that the time will be sufficient to get a couple more old fixes and adjustments in.
We will see, whether there will be model adjustments as well.

Well from this I am happy with the extension date....

JJ do you know why the game's release date was moved? Not that it's a bad thing because I have time to play Skyrim dlc's now that those are getting released on PS3 I'm just curious if the reason is balancing or addition of some new stuff maybe?

So it has nothing to do with Heart of the Swarm?  Given the buggy state the vanilla game was released in, I can't help but be skeptical about the desire to delay the game to address fixes and apply polish.

Initial release date would have been no problem with a view on HotS since it was 2 weeks earlier.
However, since a couple of issues, for example with the installer, made a delay very likely, the actual length of the delay may well have been the result of trying to avoid other releases or the Easter holidays or both, but in the end this will probably have the advantage of a more or less bugfree game at release

Thus spoke the jolly joker

Is it just me, ot did they give away how the racial works by showing it at 3:14-3:16? Looks as though You can hide a troop on the field which will attack the first creature to walk past it, possibly with a bit of bonus damage... Nice!

It isn't the first time they fail, so, as usual, inform yourself well before trusting in Ubifail words.

I think that might just be for the assassins who have invisibility (like in H5 - creature walking past reveals assassin and it attacks).
What the video does mention is that dungeon creatures are experts in hiding their true location.....could mean that a stack looks like it's in one area, when it's actually in another....maybe this is the racial ability?

Is the expansion still getting postponed cause I've just watched this video and they claim it's coming out 28 February: http://www.gamespot.com/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/videos/new-releases-february-24th-march-2nd-6404383/
They could be misinformed though.

Probably they recorded the video before the delay announcement, or maybe they simply missed the delay.

Gotta admit Belketh seems rather interesting(when reading his background and a angel necromancer? that is awesome) and the way sandro talks about him in his DLC I wanted to know more about him.

Anyway I can't wait for the expansion dark elves and more sandro!(Don't care if we don't play as sandro the very fact that he is in it makes me excited. His dlc was awesome more awesome than any of the main campaigns.

Did different people write sandro's dlc? I mean his story was more how should I say it? Mature I think and more dark compared to the other main campaigns.

I thought the inferno campaign was going to be dark but xana is a nice demon (facepalm maybe the years curbed her being nice considering how she acts in dark messiah) I never go tears with kiril does not feel right.

I play inferno to terrorize ashan not play nice with its denizens and use diplomacy yuck.

Due to the delay, Ubisoft have decided to change the racial ability of dungeon!

They want to use the brilliant Crysis 3 ability:
