So... the video clearly shows that the special abilities selector was designed for the D-Pad on a console controller. Unfortunately, my mouse and keyboard don't have D-Pads. How will special ability selection work on PC?

One downside - D2D typically doesn't send out keys early for preloads. I'm not sure if this game is getting a preload in any case though.

Done purchased, total came to $38.21
use code: CB992598C1A43D97CB6584A86DC560B1
to get an extra 15% off on top of the current 10% off all preorders.

I asked one of the developers on the forums how the smart navigation system works for the environment. He basically said that the sprint button can be held down to automatically traverse the environment but it will only do the basics, sliding under things or grabbing a ledge to vault over. To do the more complex stuff they've shown in some videos you need to combine the crouch and jump keys. An example he gave me was some guy leaping over a railing to grab a post and swing across a gap. It sounded like an interesting idea that offers an easy solution to those that don't want to think about it while offering more advanced things for other players.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll check it out.
D2D usually have those 20% off promos but not this week, 10% off any preorders is the only one I am aware of.
I have about $40 in D2D credit actually thinking about pulling the trigger on this game. Couldn't find enough promos to stack to bring the price below $40
It almost sounds like some of those advanced moves will be easier to pull off with a controller instead of the keyboard.
