So after the warm welcome of Expeditions: Conquistador – Logic Artists’ PC debut title. The developers are finally ready to do it again four years later with the long-awaited sequel. Therefore #LogicArtists is pleased to #announce April 27th as the release date of Expeditions: Viking.

Expeditions: Viking features a branching dialogue system that allows the game to manage and react to player choices. We initially estimated a word count of 200,000. But we’ve decided to increase it by an additional 80,000 words to provide players with more content. And give them more options and choices on how they progress through the story,” said Ali Emek, Expeditions: Viking Producer.

“With that amount of content, managing localization takes more time. We think it’s worth it to make the game accessible to an international audience. That’s why we’ve arranged a number of language localizations. So from day one players will be able to enjoy Expeditions: Viking in English, French, German, Polish, and Russian,” Emek added.

In addition to this, Logic Artists has stated that the additional development time strategy will allow them to tweak and balance the combat gameplay, implementing new special abilities for the most interesting villains, as well as to add flavor and improvements to Expeditions: Viking’s animations.

“We received great feedback from the testers after our last closed beta session, and rescheduling the release a bit is allowing us to spend our final weeks of development on improving usability and addressing the bugs reported during the beta test,” Emek added.
