Thanks to AC, when Cao Xiu climbed that tower all I could think off was "does this unlock the map?", I'm glad to see archery is back and I liked the grappling up the siege tower

Site has section on horses (I refuse to buy Red Hare unless with Lu Bu or Guan Yu) and scrolls

I was taken aback when I saw Red Hare being all normal looking. Then I remembered horses with flames for a mane and tail don’t actually exist.
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

Cao Xiu is a Templar, confirmed.

Site has segment on exploring (after reading about the watchtowers, I'm wishing we could dive off them) and gathering materials for crafting

Koei has translated the overview video that got posted earlier. Two lines of dubbed dialogue which is not a good advert for the new VA's

If you haven't seen it here is some English gameplay of Cao Cao during the Yellow Turban Rebellion dealing with Bao Cai and Zhang Liang.

Meh, the watchtowers are generic open world features that every single one has. Not surprising that they are there but not pleased.
Hope that they have fully dubbed gameplay with the option of Japanese/Chinese. Would be nice to not have to constantly look down to read subtitles while in the middle of a large scale battle.

Yep, pretty much :lol:

I'm fairly confident that our XL adds will be those 4, plus whoever wins the next Famitsu most wanted character poll. Likely either Gao Shun, Wang Ping, or Zhuge Jin if we're being real. However I'm still holding out hope for Cao Hong and Liao Hua 8-)

I think they will be DLC additions as PC's rather then XL, helps justify season pass and brings in more money
