  • I hope we can mix and match play styles. Appreciate the spoiler alert in the gameplay video, only watched it upto that point lol. Edit: apparently according to some comments on the Youtube video, it's possible. Now, I'm even more excited for the game and given it's a fair away in terms of launch. Plenty of time to finish building my new pc lol!
  • The majority of the vid doesn't spoil much you see a few factions of the game one of the potential boss... Only the last 2 min are real spoilers.. The reste is pretty straight forward... You have group A B C D you can be friends or foes and you have X means to achieve objectives... Nothing groundbreaking in term of spoilers... Can't wait... I have zero time to play those kind of games anymore but I think I'll make an exception... Love Sci fi rpg we don't have enough... Way too much fantasy in general
