    Nice! I made a newspost about this unknowing we already had a thread.

    It certainly looks good however the voice over in the trailer isn't an example of good writing. But it's a long time till 2021 so they have a lot of time to sharpen.

    Looks interesting enough. Aesthetically it is the closest to Fallout yet. Is the morality system all there is to it though or is there a stat and or skill system?

    On their website they say that they have a "classless system". There are expericence and leveling. On one of the screenshots you can see that there's a medicine skill, so there are probably other skills as well. There also appears to be traits based on the morality system.

    Attributes are confirmed as:

    Strenght, Agility, Resolve, Precision, Intelligence, Charisma, Speed and Awareness.

    Edit: Found an interview with the devloper here which sheds some light on things.

    Looks pretty nice, actually.

    I’m kind of tired of seeing that ”empty/half full/full” shield icon and mechanic copypasted in every TB game that gets made these days (same as with the other XCOM lookalikes), but that’s not really a complaint worth pushing forward.

    I wish someone’d take GTA 2 as a base example to craft a topdown TB RPG.

    Everything looks so green and lush in that game that you hardly notice it's supposed to be PA.

    Heh, the first time I ever heard about this game was through TriangleCity's video where he interviewed Fallout Tactics Lead Designer Ed Orman. He gave a shout out to the game at the end of the interview BTW. :-)

    Bruh, it took you TEN MONTHS to reply to this!
    :facepalm: ;)

    But in all seriousness yeah, TriangleCity deserves all the love and support for the work he does on his videos!

    Truth be told, I rather have them take this route rather than release it broken. Because sadly, that's the new NORM of gaming these days!

    I was thinking maybe they delayed it because of the many game releases this November and they think sales might be better earlier next year.

    I mean there's Colony Ship and later Rogue Trader this year and lots of other titles. People wont prioritise Broken Roads. The competition made them fear for their sales and then they delayed 5 days before launch and gave QA as an excuse.
