I understand this may have been asked countless times but please bear with me. I had a long vacation from this forum and am looking forward to returning now.
Now what I mean by the title is will it be similar to Fable 3?? I dont mean the storyline and such. But I meant the style. What will it be like?? What can I expect?? If there is a written explanation please direct me. I do not want a video interview since im deaf. But if there is a gameplay, please direct me as well. Other than fighting the orcs, what can we do?? I am aware there will be sidequests and such but will there be something else to do??

Also I forgot to ask, will there be a New Game+ and can we roam around like Mass Effect 2??? roam around after you finish the game and such??
And I got a tweet from warinthenorth twitter account:
Will there be a big battle similar to Helms Deep??
"Big Battles" are subjective. but we'll have a mix of close frenetic short combat, arena style wave and bosses.
Can I ask someone here to please explain what they meant by "Big Battles" are subjective

there is a game+, you will need to play though the campaign three times to get to the lvl cap.( i believe its 40) each game + makes the game harder but with better loot along the way. Theres an arena mode called "challenge mode where you fight waves of orcs. (were trying to get more deatails for this right now). Both of these add a bunch of playtime and repeateabilityto the game.

I believe this game will be more akin to Diablo or Snowblinds previous games(Baulders Gate Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath) than Fable. So it will be mostly killing stuff to level up and get new loot. There will be towns or citys where there will be vendors to buy or sell things and quest givers. There hadn't been any video of how the towns are structured and if there is anything else to do in them.
Here are some straight gameplay videos from comic-con back in july.
Here is a link to all the dev blogs.
There is a new game+ but it replaying the campaign again with higher level enemies and better loot. It's not a free roam but during the campain you can revisit old areas to complete side quests.
"Big Battles" are subjective means what does a big battle mean to you 100, 1000, 10,000 orcs. From what we have seen I don't think we will seen anything like Helms Deep from the movies. That was like 10,000 uruk I think at most we will see 20-30 guys on screen at once. They may be larger battle going on near you but you will probably have to fight enemies in waves.
Again if you have played Diablo I think you will have a good idea how this game will be structured just with a third person camera and better combat.
