Maaaan, I've been waiting for a mission-based car-combat game for a while now.
Ditto. As the game will be MMO, I won't be able to afford it either. However, if the game does well, it will motivate more developers to follow suit and produce vehicular combat games. Personally, I'd love to see a single-player vehicular combat game with RPG aspects. Take Freelancer, mix it with Twisted Metal Black, Interstate '76 and maybe even a little Morrowind... sheer goodness =*]
