Hell yes! I am glad they are going historical again. Although I would love to see them go further and do the ancient world.

    GriftGFX The most important thing here is that there are tickets and conquest and even conquest assault. And also their take on BR mechanics sounds pretty original and Battlefield. (0 minute ago)
