    The three images, re-hosted in case the CA Wiki rolls over and dies (as it has an alarming habit of doing):

    At least two are new :P

    I don't like the cone visions, hated them in S2TW, as if people are stuck with blinders and can't rotate their torsos lol
    I guess they'll be needed with the new line of sight spotting...
    Hope the horsearchers don't have them though!

    Bit concerned by Raphia, looks like very made up...

    If it's like Shogun 2 all missile weapons have firing cones which can be modded.

    I hope that ALL battlefield UI markings can be turned off or at least only seen when mousing over a unit or building. Shogun2 lets us turn off giant standards and missile trails but they forgot to let us disable the permanent tower owner balloons in castles after adding them in a patch. The red or yellow markers are always there. I dislike any markers of any sort that constantly float above, under or around the units. For me these things ruin the visual effect if they are always on.

    Isn't there a cinematic mode for that?

    Hit k in S2tw, barebones ui, no minimal just cursor and enable ui button; true immersion :P.

    Don't want to get owned in mp so I keep my ui on.

    Indeed.

    Ironically many years ago, pre-RTW I posted at the .com an idea quite similar to the tactical overhead view we seem to get. I hope it is done well. Ideally one should be able to fight with the effects one wants.
