Techland seem to be publishing BT4 and they will be at E3. I can't find any info about the games at Techland's stand though.

edit: Techland are listed on the E3 floor plan with an RPG for PS4, Xbox and PC.

If you check twitter, they're there.

For some reason I can't post the direct link, but if you check my last tweet it's there: https://twitter.com/MrBacklog

So InXile has people there, but no footage?

Two helpful tweets about the E3 build:
Je viens de manger le lapin de ma vie, sur ce rdv avec une build de The Bard's Tale IV, build qui n'a pas du tout fait le déplacement à l'E3

C'est Techland qui m'a mis au courant en mode "nous on bosse pas dessus mais on nous pose la question depuis trois jours, ils sont pas là"

Or more helpfully in English, basically:

I've just eaten the rabbit of my life (lolwhut), on this rdv(?) with a build of The Bard's Tale IV, build that did not at all make it to E3
It is Techland who informed me "we don't work on it but we asked for three days, they are not there"

From the new Kickstarter update:
We will have more to say about E3 in our next update, but wanted to note that inXile was well-represented there by these two fine gentlemen:

They are Bard's Tale IV Producer Jeff Pellegrin and Creative Director David Rogers. Jeff and David were there representing the game, meeting with fans and fellow developers, and generally spreading Bard's Tale joy across E3.
No mention of talking to journalists, or of being listed as a featured game at the Techland booth. And "more to say about E3 in the next update". Hmm.

Maybe they're saving their ammo until they're a bit closer to release date? Or they wanted to save the money, they'd be competing against very big marketing budgets.

I saw Fargo tweet something about how some companies spend millions on marketing at E3 to have the journalists say "meh", he was obviously wary of being lost in the crowd.

Hungry for more info though. I want to know how tactical the combat is - I thought the combatthey showed in that trailer could be really deep if they wanted it to, although you'd need to be wary of slowing the combat down too much.

Heh. Normally I'd think that sounded like the result of a bad machine translation ("I excel the automobile to best benevolence!"), but I recognize just enough French to believe that actually is what it says. At least literally. Maybe it's idiomatic? Any native speakers here to shed some light?
