    Thumbs up KINGDOMS: NEW BRITANNIA campaign video is up on IGN !

    Hi all !

    Just in case this has not been posted yet a new Kingdoms Britannia campaign video is up on IGN since yesterday.

    It's an excellent preview.

    I always wanted forts that you could actually USE, and they're in here. Now next step, that you can build these anywhere !

    Graphics are beyond anything out there. Completely annihilates the competition, or should I say... what competition ?
    There is no denying it. This preview demonstrates M2:TW absolute and total dominance in the genre.

    Well done CA.

    SALUTE !

    Very very nice movie. And I am in completely compliance with Yunus Dogus. I need the money to build another computer before I can play with graphics like that, especially with army sizes such as those. Either way, it is going to be fun commanding vikings for the Britannia campaign! ^^

    Tschüß!

    HAHAHAH ! Alienware is an expensive gaming rig basically, Crossfire is a method to have 2 GFX cards in your machine. You can have 2 high end GPUs (Graphics cards) in the same machine, if you take 2 of the highest end cards you're in with the men. You can get the same performance with one card but that one obviously has to outperform the other two. Click the links for more info.

    I think the guy doing the voiceover could do with some voice acting lesson, I mean would it have killed him to have put a little enthusiasm, emotion, or drama into his presentation.

    even if he'd hammed it up abit, at least it show some life

    nit picking.. sure


    but dont tell me the dead pan delivery didnt take the edge off the excitement and anticipation

    we're it not for this that preview wouldve had me drooling like pavlovs dog

    Um ca has the time line mixed up. The viking invasion was already beaten in 1066 and William Wallace lived circa 1270 - 23 augustus 1305

    and the viking invasion never fought the English because the men in England didnt call themselves Englishmen at the time. and the invasion was stopped by William the Conqueror who then founded England so a viking invasion doesnt make any sense in m2t kingdoms

    They're Norwegians, not sure why CA are calling them Vikings, but Norway did hold territory in the British Isles during the time period of the Britannia campaign, and im guessing their invasions are more of a what if situation.

    Looks like it will be very entertaining to play, bizarre history notwithstanding. Bit disappointed that there arent more factions, like there were in Viking Invasion, however it should be relatively easy for someone to mod this into a VI style mini campaign.

    Norway was beaten by Scotland at the battle of Largs in 1263. That's when they conceded cliam to most of scotland.

    However they still retained Shetland and Orkney until 1468 I think, when they were wedding gifts (dowry) for Queen margaret to James 111.

    The Norwegians were stil "vikings" at this point (witnes the viking museum at largs). I think what CA may have done is transpose norwegian invasion by 30 years or so (and made the country of invasion subject to random chance) to make it more interesting.

    The date in video is 1296 so wallace popping up during the course of game is accurate.

    I don't know so much about wales and ireland, but they were pretty constantly in rebellion so I take it that's right.

    And there were baronial rebellions around that time so I assume that's vaguely accurate.

    Oh yeah, Simon De Montforts Baronial rebellion was in 1264 or something, i know the Battle of Lewes was then. I thought the Britannia campaign started in 1250 or something.

    Thats a nice video. Its the kind of campaign which would suit a good multiplayer.

    Remember that the Faeroe Islands(sp? Færøyene in norwegian) is still under danish control(to some extent)... They were originally norwegian, but we lost them(as well as greenland and a few others) when the danes lost norway to sweden after napoleon, but retained our colonies... So a "viking" presence is well-founded.
    Still maintain that crying on the pitch should warrant a 3 match ban

    The viking invasion was already beaten in 1066
    Oh really? Then why did harold have to fight off a huge viking army in 1066?

    and the viking invasion never fought the English because the men in England didnt call themselves Englishmen at the time.
    This kind of complaint is so foolish as to not even deserve a reply. It's like saying the Americans never fought the English because we didn't call ourselves Americans at the time.

    and the invasion was stopped by William the Conqueror
    Explain to me how in your world the viking invasion was simultaneously over before 1066, and *also* stopped by William the Conqueror, who didn't show up until 1066?

    who then founded England
    William the Conqueror did not *found* England. He conquered it. If what you say is true he'd be called William the Founder.

    so a viking invasion doesnt make any sense in m2t kingdoms
    It made perfect sense in MTW1, and thus it makes perfect sense in MTW2.

    They weren't beaten. It was simply a skirmish between a Norwegian scouting party and Scottish soldiers.
    Claims to the islands were abandoned after Håkon died of a fever on the Orkneys.

    No. Most historians would not agree with you there.

    The movie is superb! I really like it, and I look forward to his expansion. Hopefully it will bring more immersion into the game.

    I had almost zero interest in the idea of a Britannia campaign or indeed the expansion itself, but am intrigued after this video. Playing the English on VH/VH and foreswearing all alliances might provide a fun challenge - not unlike the WRE in BI. Welsh, Irish, Scots, Danes and rebel barons to contend with. Sounds like fun.

    Yeah, plus I like how there will be more regions for the same geographic locations. IMO in M2:TW there are too few regions.

    England in particular should have at least 15 on the Isles alone. Same goes for almost all regions and factions, too few regions.
