Even in its early days, Althas has been a land shaken by conflicts. In the early days, these conflicts pitted the Anointed Kingdoms of Men against the dark and demonic forces that threatened them. However, with the passage of time the world has changed. With the Anointed order eroding away and new powers rising, another war looms on the horizon, a war brought on by Man's own actions. Thenodar, a burgeoning new kingdom in the North, and Anorthile, one of the last of the three remaining Anointed Kingdoms, now prepare for a war that will shake all of Althas. Old demons and new enemies gather in the shadows of both lands as each sets their sights on the ruined wilderness known as the Feralands.

As with the other video these are great, but the feet should ideally be less static. Usually during moves like this, your feet will not be glued to the same place, you'll do small steps or even hops inbetween to adjust your stance or balance espcecially after recovering from a kick like that.

Footwork is very important in combat.^^

Indeed but (I assume) that's also harder to work with. Since if you just assume that the legs will be "static", then you can probably more easily give them some other animation to fit say the actor moving or something.

Also I'm pretty sure these were hand animated rather than with mocap so it'd have probably been more difficult and tedious than mainly just animating the upper body.

Anyway it's nice to see this project is still in the works.

I agree with Mirsh again. But now the animations are in place, we can finally see some in-game combat maybe?
