Love the new assets! In case of lamellar armor – Man, +1 to keeping the old assets as well! Actually, I loved them.
And about platemail, full plate, cuirasses, salets etc etc. do you guys consider a possibility for future DLC(or expansion, as I’d call it) with “rare” (maybe unlockable by some kind of quests?) merchants selling such stuff? Regional armor and weapons + late medieval things. Some people are crying for that.
I’m pretty sure even with “optional DLC” giving access to another tier of items you’d make a ton of money and a lot of people would get satisfied. Adding 8-10 new sets of armor, few helmet variants and some new weapon assets shouldn’t become loads of works. They do such stuff to Conan Exiles and people are actually buying those DLC’s.
