    Without breaking the NDA I think this game is going to be quite good.

    I played in the secret world beta and thought it was terrible if that means anything.

    The quests in this game are still the usual boring quests (at least in the early stages) but the combat is fun which is what really counts.

    Think 3rd person Borderlands mmo without the cell shaded graphics.

    Scroosh, i don't know if this is NDA breaking or not, but does ping effect the gameplay much?

    It would just like any shooter.

    There has only been a stress test so I can't say how much yet.

    I loved Rift and I'll give Defiance another shot but I'm not impressed in the slightest and yes I know it's a beta.

    I can answer this now and no the ping doesn't affect the gameplay.

    Feels smooth and responsive.

    This game is gonna be good...

    I'll just go with the digital version though but will hold off to see if I can get it cheaper than $60...

    Also would love to have it on steam.

    GMG 20% discount voucher GMG20-PJFEW-Y16HK
    https://www.greenmangaming.com

    Standard
    $60 down to $48 (plus $1 cash back) =$47

    Digital Delux
    $99 down to $79


    They have those vouchers frequently so maybe wait till the game actually gets a discount, then apply a discount voucher (for some reason it works for a lot of their games)

    I want a hard copy edition though. The digital goodies are sort of meh.

    Awesome thanks for the heads up!

    Any chance of it being on steam before it releases?

    Looks pretty Nice, kinda reminds me of Tabula Rasa for some reason.

    Man I loved that game...

    Yeah a lot of people are comparing it to that game... It's been a while but I remember the shooting in that game to be a real gimmick where it was still like wow but you just had to put your mouse over the enemy instead of tabbing to them, kinda hard to explain but it wasn't a real shooter.

    This game is a real shooter but it's 3rd person not first person.

    I actually prefer 3rd person but a lot of other people don't.
