Well isn't it possible to have an update section within the game where one can like pick some of the mods the Paradox staff has verified are worth having and then like download it like an unofficial DLC?

Sadly, I think that if mods were released as "DLC", it would reflect poorly on us if a mod caused problems, and we can't offer support for mods.

try Divinity:Original Sin :)

I wonder if prices will be the same for both versions. New PDS games are usually around $40 (or $50? don't remember) for PC while new PS4 games are usually $60 at least.

Does that mean it will work/ be released on PS3? I don't know much about consoles, sorry if that is a stupid question.

I really wish this would be the case, I haven't bought a Playstation game in a long time (don't like most of them), and I'm definitely not getting the PS4 just for Runemaster. But it would be really great to be able to play Runemaster on the couch with my girlfriend (she has PC-phobia)

PS4 games won't work on the PS3.

You can use Steam on your TV with the Big Picture thing and play with a gamepad, but you have to hook up your PC to the TV. I'd just get a long HDMI cable.

As I suspected. Thanks for the information.

Hehe, believe or not, but I found this gem 4 days ago and I love it! :)
I don't like the paper,stone,scissor mechanic though, and the group dynamic feels somewhat shallow - but you can't have everything, right? ^^

on topic:
- will there be sth like a group dynamic in Runemaster?
meaning, will the player char meet companions with their own story/behavior/side-quests or something along the line?

I'm a big fan of tactical RPGs. I played a lot of them and saw the genre change with time... And sadly Runemaster seems to go back in the past. I didn't like to hear that it was inspired by "old school rpgs".
The Combat looks like Age of Wonders or Elven Legacy (which is bad: just rush on the enemy and attack is not tactical. X Com is tactical. Divinity is tactical.) . And more generally, it reminds me of games like Conquistador.

The world doesn't look dynamic, with ramrod straight NPCs and no life in the trees, no animals in the ground or in the air (and no weather effects? it would be very strange if there is no snowfall in this game...). The lore and atmosphere look interesting but unequally handled (the trolls are amazing, but the giants look too generic, and too little. When I read Thor, Odin and Loki fight againts the giants, I'm pretty sure that it was written that even the oldest female giant was 3 times taller than them. And when Thor tried to hit a Giant that was sleeping with his hammer, he barely awake him...).

So for now it looks like a decent niche game. I don't know if in 2014/5 I could enjoy playing this game more than 1 hour at a time... I did not enjoy Conquistador so much and the gameplay videos of Runemaster remind me a lot of that game. I just hope the game will be more dynamic, with some events like bandit attacks, village fires, changes in already visited places while you are away, all kind of random events...
I'm still intrigued.

A PC is always Windows, I take it you use Apple though.
Nonsense. "PC" is and has always been a hardware architecture, which has been around longer than Windows. The first PCs ran DOS. Many other operating systems came later, such as OS/2, Novell Netware, Windows NT, various ports of BSD, SCO UNIX, Minix, Linux, BeOS, etc. and nowadays some people have hacked Mac OS X to run on PCs as well (in fact modern Apple computers effectively are PCs themselves).

The Runemaster demo at Gamescom did have one such storyline, but I do fear that these will always be limited in scope and your companions will eventually turn into yet another fighting unit that you keep in your backpack.
