Creative Assembly discuss concerning the plight of Bretonnia in the patch notes:
“One thing that was very noticeable is that the Bretonnian tech tree relies heavily on race-specific upgrades, and all the targets of these technologies were Old World factions only. With the New World adding many new races, it was only fitting to add some technologies specific to these new races. In addition, we noticed that Bretonnia doesn’t have many unit upgrades in the technology tree, making them fall behind a bit when other races start to unlock their general unit upgrades in the middle game. We addressed this issue by adding a whole new section to the end of the tech tree that mostly includes unit upgrades for men-at-arms, archers and knights of all sorts.”
The Bretonnian tech tree will obtain an additional 20 applied sciences, bringing the entire to 32. Five of those assist Bretonnia kick in New World races, some are easy unit upgrades reminiscent of additional armour for Knights, and a few make sure buildings higher.
