This game is incredible now.
True 6 degrees of freedom.
With a joystick, it's off the charts IMO.. better than Elite Dangerous (except for sound design). Decoupling into Newtonian physics is really fun, then recouple, afterburner, bam .. black out, and a 2 second 180.
Now we need the game part
I'm hyped, for good reason, this is not vaporware. The engine rocks now, when AC first came out I hated it for the simplistic crap controls. Trust me, it's good now!
