Of course we know what it is... silly. It is everything that SH3 should have come with but didn't. -

Thought everybody knew that! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Seems weird that they're doing an expansion so close to the scheduled release of IV (Q1 2006), but hopefully it's something good (WOLFPACKS?!)

We know effectively nothing about SH4. Perhaps SH4 is a different theatre (for example USA submarines), and so it would be the same game-engine. Thus SH3-expansion would have some of the new features added, but remain German, while Sh4 would be with USA submarines.

It certainly wouldn't make sense for SH4 to be German again, but it also probably wouldn't be possible to combine the two into one either (US and German Subs/U-Boote in one game would be too big, and require too much additional work).

Also, USA-Subs would, obviously, cater to the USA market - I don't know how SH3 managed in the USA, but it was at Number 1 on the charts here in Germany, when it came out. I suspect that USA-subs wouldn't be as popular here, whereas they would be in the USA.
