    Out now, $25 USD.

    Looks stunning and fun. Aliens abduct people and take them to their planet to battle it out to find the ultimate human. Generous loot + learnable weapon recoil, they hope it be E-Sport focussed.

    They are big CS:GO and halo fans.. perhaps a combination of them

    Looks like it will optimised well. 13 July 2018 early access.

    Looks a lot better than when I first saw it a while back on shroud's stream, looking forward to giving it a crack.

    And its out $25 USD, reports of issues with matchmaking and stuttering, devs apparently on to it. Lots of positive steam reviews by alpha players/fan base. Few negative by people with under an hour game time whinging about the server/stutter issues.

    I grabbed it, hopefully give a crack tonight.

    Just bought it, can confirm there are OCEANIC servers, as in, in Australia. Looks fast paced also, nice.

    Just jumped on reddit (should have done before purchase actually), and it looks like the devs are regarded highly by the community. Good signs.

    Really annoys me when I see performance based negative reviews on early access games.

    Yeah, I mean PUBG is how old and still has perf issues.. Give them a chance to have mass hardware configs try the game out and let em gather data and refine.

    I wont rule it out if is server issues/perf issues in the first few weeks..

    I wouldn't stress too much, sounds like the devs are onto it already. From what I gather, based on the people who've been playing this pre-early access, that the game runs pretty well. But yeah it's pretty laughable, on Day 1 of early access, people with less than 1hr of game time are giving negative reviews.

    Watched a mate play, ran pretty decent on his rig. Looks pretty. The gun game while in lobby is cool. Def potential there. Not as fast as I'd like but u move quicker with knife out or Smg over snipers etc.

    Got home but have to drive out again. Kicked off download, prepared a couple of things and game ready to go. Annoyance #1 dual monitor, one gsync and one freesync. Primary is Predator with Gsync, but game keeps launching on secondary and no options in game to swap, so I have to reduce res, set to windowed mode, then drag it to primary screen and set game back to 2k and full screen. Fired it up for practice, game looks very nice and runs smoothly. Set my key mappings for kb and mouse, practice until sensitivity for hip and ADS are right. Fired up a game: good fun. Still runs smooth with 50 players in a map, but obviously not in the training with you're on your own. Very good so far for Day 1 of early access, experienced no jittery. And found a game within seconds. Definitely a much faster game than PUBG, and never bothered with FortNite. Was the 7th player on the first match.
