Italian website PC Gaming interviewed Daniel Vavra creative director at Warhorse.

Yes. Skyrim set in a real medieval world, with little bit more emphasis on story. We are also more concentrated on quality rather that quantity. So don’t expect 200 dungeons in our game, we will have more like 10, but much more detailed and special.

There wil be nine weapon classes. Every weapon class uses different and authentic medieval technique which we design with actual very experienced swordsmen. The combat is first person, which is really a challenge, but I believe we made it very simple to control, while giving the player lot of complex choices at any given moment. You can select which bodypart you want to attack and how, we have combos etc. But on top of that, its based on physics, so anytime you hit something, there really is impact, proper physical reaction of the target, yyour swords slides over the armor etc. Something that couldn’t be possible on current gen. We are really proud of this and will show it in upcoming video update on our Kickstarter page.

Its developed on PC with concoles in mind. Next gen consoles have lot of memory so they don’t limit us in terms of texture size etc. Normal PCs should run very smooth and if someone has some powerful beast, he can always make it run with bigger viewing distance, more effects and larger resolution.

PC gaming means freedom for developers and gamers. The rise of indie community on PC these days is awesome and PC is doing damn well. Its far from dead as many have predicted in the past and its going to stay. Which is great news and I never doubted that. But I am not the platform wars guy, I have pretty powerful PC, Windows Phone, iPad, Win8 tablet, PS3, XboxOne, 3DS… I owned and loved Amiga, C64, ZX Spectrum, Nintendo 64 and GC and I find every platform I owned interesting in its own way

yeah, it looks pretty cool. i'm hoping there is more "open world" stuff to do though. it would seem like a waste to have that big overworld and just be funneled from mission to mission.

It sounds like they've got cool ideas. I hope they can execute.

Slightly off-topic, I really wish somebody would just give us at least an ETA on when we stop calling the PS3/XB360 paradigm "current-gen". It keeps me from sleeping at night...

Sorta like being up past midnight and saying "tomorrow" and then your asshole friend on the couch goes "tomorrow?" with his eyebrow raised knowingly. And then you wonder why you haven't killed him yet.

But you'd be pretty safe in stopping now. Only poor people still think PS3 and 360 are "current-gen."

Also, this game has my eye. Seriously. Love medieval stuff and the realistic setting (i.e, no wizards or elves) is a huge plus for me. Pretty sure some of the guys that did mafia are on this, which is a fairly perfect transition goings from one era of wanton thuggery and corruption to another.

Sounds like Skyrim meets Mount & Blade... Which sounds like a good thing, actually. There's way too many fake-medieval fantasy stuff, so it's nice to see actual medieval simulators for once.

Sounds interesting.

I'll keep an eye on this.

this i like, hopefully its done with a lot of emphasis on a huge sandbox to roam, as in Skyrim, one of the main reasons i can't get enough Skyrim even after all these years is cause of the vast world to which there seems almost no end to at times.. if its done in a simular fashion it could very well be the next open world gem to own.. only time will tell but damn sure will be following this one.
