What's the game play here? FPS? It was hard to determine from the trailer.
Bullshit. 1.) It's not a cover shooter. The cover is made for the enemies more than the player. Cover is a last resort; a chance to take a breather on a chaotic battleground. In fact, fight from cover and you will die. You only regen health by killing enemies close range when you're the trickster, and the other classes have skills that have you want to be in the middle of the battle. Reviewers and ppl like you that say this is a cover shooter, are dead wrong.
2.) The loot is the best in any looter shooter in the last years, acknowledged by Youtubers with looter shooter creds like Echelon Gamer who has 2000+ hours in Division and Division 2. The better loot in this game change the way your skills work or improve them. Pretty much like much Diablo 3 gear does or other ARPGs. That makes this game pretty unique among its kind. It's more than just stats improving, and more like your entire gameplay depending on the gear you wear.
I thoroughly recommend this game. I have a bone to pick with every jaded gamer out there that doesn't recognize the pearl this game is. It does something different without reinventing the wheel.
This is the best shooter in years.
While #1 is correct (I can see how others see all the cover though and think what they do), no one can say what kind of legs this game has yet. SolidFPS was running end game content last night. But the point I'm getting at is, will people want to run all the characters? Will people want to run end game for a good while to make it feel worth their money? It all depends, most of the looter shooters are okay enough up until that point then sort of fall off. We'll see. Won't be long to know.
Unless it bombs to Avengers level, I'll play this on a bit of a sale or if it comes to PC Gamepass.
