I’m sure that some of you are familiar with Mordhau. Although the combat is fundamentally different, I think that moving in that direction is important for the second game. Why?
The combat in the first game seemed to put a lot of people off; Mordhau’s combat is a lot more fluid (and I’m a big fan of the brutality of it as well). It allows the player to fight multiple enemies at once and although very fast-paced, it’s also very technical and hard to master. Hip placement, angling, swing vs thrust etc. Fighting multiple enemies at once is, simply, broken in KCD. It’s NOT an enjoyable experience at all.
Hope the dev’s give this some thought!
