Trivia[]

The hint: "Take your time: War can take years. There is no time limit, so go ahead and take as much time time as you'd like to explore the world map, craft items and talk to people. What kind of terrible designed game would put a time limit on that?" is an inside joke towards the predeccing game Expeditions: Viking, in which the campaigns in the first and second act have a time limit for a certain in-game days. Some players complained about the time limits being short.
