    there was a bit of press around E3 and it was lukewarm to lukewarm plus.

    Watched some streams of this - the entire feel of the game is amazing, the environment is super realistic and you can tell everything is built manually. The sounds to go with it are excellent. Seems like the gameplay would get pretty stale, though, especially with such tiny servers.

    I was in the Closed Alpha. It was unreal. Graphics were the best in any game I've played, environment was beautiful. Sound and map design was insane. For example, the way they have strategically placed flocks of crows and caged dogs that when you pass the birds swark and fly off and the dogs bark, just adds that extra layer to the experience. There were some FPS drops for me, but nothing like some people are describing. I was on High @ 1440p and my game sat at around 45-70fps. No lower. It definitely needs some optimisation, but it's still pretty solid in it's current state.
    The major concern for me was the network lag, as well as the long delays getting into a game. Sometimes it took me about 10 mins to go from the menu and be in the game ready to go, it was a bit slow.

    Other than that - highly recommended, will definitely be better once they get Aussie servers and have optimised the loading in.

    tried to play the alpha but was never able to get in a match, but now they are selling it so i'm sure it's totally fixed.

    Getting pretty poor reviews on the steam page. Looks promising but sounds like it's too early for any form of release.

    I played the alpha just before it went to early access - honestly I think it needed a bit more work before putting it up for EA. It was pretty I will give it that, but still reckon it needs A LOT of work.

    guys, I'm fairly keen on this game. Is it any good for aussie players? I read that the servers are US only??

    Seems like the youtube clips I've seen run fairly smoothly too. So is it a recommended game yet?

    Free to play this weekend. Had a couple of rounds last night with a friend. Actually quite a lot of fun. Very tense, especially when trying to escape with other players hunting you down. Too early to say if I will buy, will try a few more rounds later tonight.
