This definitely isn't real gameplay. The game will play somewhat like this, but this is basically just a huge cutscene. With that said, if this IS representative of the final gameplay, this is terrible. There's no gameplay... It's just an interactive movie with constant scripted cutscenes. There's also zero player choice, no conversation trees... Nah. What happened to you Bioware?

So, just fro ma 6 min video you already gathers all that information? Yea, OK!!!

yeah. Any questions?

Nope, just correcting you and saying that you are completely wrong about the game. I contacted a friend of mine who works for BioWare. I asked him about that trailer. this is what he said.

It's pretty obvious that the demo starts as an in-game cinematic until you get outside. At that point, it's people actually playing the game, though they are following a script and a set path.

So, yea you are wrong. yes they followed a script, but it wasn't scripted like you are saying. It was live and with live Coop players joining them.

Once you've been around the block a few dozen times, you'll notice some obvious patterns. Don't worry, one day you'll get some experience.

Piss off! I've been around the block and then some junior!

Two things, I'm betting this will be on Win 10 only. and that online Coop split screen will take a lot of heat from players.

No idea why they want to put the player into a split screen while playing over the internet. Thats just stupid. Use a smaller PIP if needed, but not half my screen.

Maybe you're not the target audience? My 10 year old loved it.

Well, goody two shoes for your 10 year old. And this just reaffirms my first comment. Boring!!!

I had completely forgotten about this game, to the point that I was shocked that it was still in development. Epic announced it 6 years ago; no wonder.

Edit: Oh phooey, I see it's F2P...


Ah no, its defiantly a pay to win game, have you seen the packages they are offering? Absolutely terrible!!

And something easily forgottem, MTG has a deep lore, if you remove the cards and basically convert it into a living breathing fantasy world it could be an absolutely mind-blowing RPG. But yeah, what are the chances these 2 devs of all the devs manage THAT?

If they're smart (which admittedly I've no evidence they can be on a consistent basis), they've been making use of the "Planeshift" supplements WotC put over the last year or so as a starting point to help them. Those should give them at least some sort of grounding for a standalone RPG while helping them get a handle on the lore. Again, that's if they're smart.

Belive me, their not!

Well that just ruined my day, once I saw Cryptic/Perfect World was involved. The master of deception and monetizing games to death just kills any expectation you might have for a good game.

The free edition doesn't include the coop missions, which is the only thing interesting about this game to me. Edit: Yes, you can purchase the story mode by grinding in-game credits, but I don't want to play the competitive multiplayer.

That just makes the game even more less appealing. I own the game, played it though once and that was enough for me. The game failed in so many ways.

Its one of those titles I really wish I had never bought. Misleading and was thought to be a successor to Borderlands, but big time failed on that note.

Has? Dude they been long gone for a long time now. Blizz is a former shell of itself, they dont make games worth a shit anymore. They are more concentration with over-watch now or hearthstone.

I've pretty much lost all respect for them, and dont support them any more.

I'm not sure why anyone would crowdfund an MMO. MMOs are very expensive to make. No amount of crowdfunding will be enough to completely fund an MMO's development or upkeep. $11 million is nothing. The average AAA game costs at least $40 million and that's just for a 10 hour single-player campaign.

Yeah, but the KS wasn't about an MMO. This "downgrade" has been gifted to backers out of nowhere.

And indeed, for $11m -fees you aren't gonna make a MMO which is why the original KS was for a SP game!

This gives you some idea why people are REALLY sour on this one.

When I backed this game on KS it was going to be a single-player RPG. Then it morphed into a pseudo-MMO with a huge, bloated cash shop and virtual goods rivaling Star Citizen in price. As the game "developed" the virtual goods just got more and more outrageous in price. They've spent so much time on milking people via the cash shop that could have been spent on developing the core game. Right now, the game is nowhere near ready for launch in its current state.

I also backed this, but I dont ever recall the game not being MP. I backed it because it was going to have Coop.

But after backing it and then seeing what they released. I have always regretted backing this game. Its been such a disappointment. the game play and graphics just sucks to no end.

I reinstall the game ever y so often and load it up hoping that something has finally changed, that its gotten better but my hopes are always smashed.

To be honest about Tabula, that was a pretty good game, but after they went in and changed the game with that one patch that screwed up the weapons. It sucked from that point on. I was surprised they didn't resurrect this game with a free to play model. It may have survived if they did that.

For me, this is absolutely useless without significant new content.

Same here, this is nothing more then another pitch and sell.

Its mind boggling that they dont expand the game or add more content to explore. just lame as hell from what used to be a great company. all they care about now is match making and overwatch.

So since he's the game designer, was he in charge of lies about micro-transactions, absurd amount of pay to win bullshit?

Or is GTFO the new 'gold standard' of how they will respond to their customers?

LOL, I'm wondering when hes going to drop the bomb on everyone after they buy into the game that there will be pay to win transactions.

These guys defiantly set a bad president on their rep with that lying ass bullshit they pulled on the community.

The problem with snipers in shooters is it encourages camping. No one wants to venture out only to get picked off. It's boring.

You do realize this game does not have PVP? Some time down the road, yes it will. But this discussion is about the core games PVE.

I don't see why everyone is already complaining about the cloaking enemies in this - considering what kind of tech we got in Future Soldier after all. Sure, that was a "near future" style world, but we aren't that far away from that technology being usable in the field. Plus, its a game after all

People whine, just to whine. There is nothing wrong with the Cloaked Snipers, in fact they add a new element to the game that makes you think before rushing in.

Played for about 2 hours last night and we had a pretty good time. the new enemies and the newer AI difficultly is pretty challenging.

Glad to see they hit this milestone... And for those that have yet to get it, it's currently at 50% off on Humble Store (12.49 USD).

As a fan of all three recent major ARPGs (D3, PoE, GD), I appreciate what each brings to the table/genre...

And I'm looking forward to the expansion... Which I hope/expect has new content along with the two new classes, and I'm eager to check out each (though also worried they'll be badly balanced initially, making later nerfs/buffs more painful).

I could never understand this balancing bullshit in PvE games with no PvP. Blizzard likes to go on about it in Diablo3, it's total bullshit. Either a class works or it doesnt. Talk about buffs and nerfs in PvE games with increasing difficulty curves is just fluff for poorly designed games.

That was the primary reason I left D3. The constant re-shuffling of the classes, one patch this toon is the uber class, the next patch this toon is. And on top of that making all current gear obsolete in the prcoess. I just got so sick and tied of that bullshit.

The fact is and Blizz fails to understand it or they just dont give a damn, is that all classes should be balanced the same, one class should never be doing millions of damg per crit hit where as another toon cant and is mostly being setup as a support toon.

Blizz turned D3 into a fricking MMO wanna be. its a fricking disgrace to the franchise how they lobotomized this once beloved game.

This game is so much better and a far superior game to Bilbo 3.

The settings and the environments are so much better looking and unique. unlike Bilbo 3s where they rehash the shit out or each area and dungeon setting.

Plus the story is better too and looks 10 times better.

Arthur is a really nice guy and actually listens to what the community has to say.

During the early Alpha of the game, I was the one who actually suggested to him that they add the move button to the game and he added it. I really appreciated that. one of the best features ever for these types of games.

IDK, I really don't care for the camera angles I'm seeing. plus it looks like its going to be hard to play and a bit to dark.

Plus did you notice in the clip the fireballs targeting the player did not miss him at all even though he was trying to doge it? That to me doesn't bode well for the game play if the AI seems always spot on.
