In-game dialogue[]

The Llanero speaks Spanish using the Spanish Hussar's dialogue files.


Llaneros are herders who once inhabited the plains between the present-day Venezuela and Colombia. They were famous as proficient riders who handles all matters related to livestock and ranches. During the wars of independence in South America, llaneros served both the Spanish and the revolutionaries, forming the bulk of their cavalry forces. Llaneros faded to obscurity with the rising oil industry in Venezuela, but their feats continue to be remembered into the present day.
