Logic Artists' Expeditions: Viking title is being delayed into next year, but fans of the historical RPG will also get something for their trouble.

The PC title now has a tentative launch window of February 2017, changed from this fall.

However, the studio says it's adding environmental hazards into the game. These are objects in the environment (placed before or during combat) that players will have to considering when resolving their tactics on the battle field. The developer says it also wants to support English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, and Polish when the game comes out, as well as add more random encounters and side quests.

Our Take
Given how it sounds like there are plenty of choices already in the game, the choice to spend more time on development – as well as add more tactical options and quests – seems like a great move.
