    Looks/sounds more interesting than anything else they've done for a while:



    Why can't they spell?

    I think it looks very promising - looking forward to seeing how the building mechanics pan out too!

    Yeah, suppose it's going to be a sort of Minecraft/Horde mode/tower defence-y thing

    Looking forward to seeing some gameplay

    When you say "For a while" you mean ever? :D

    Shame it doesn't show the game, like the look of it.

    They made Jazz Jackrabbit and Unreal Tournament. A very long time may have been better.

    Looks good!

    Not brown anyway.

    It's going to need some seriously good reviews to hand over money for what seems to be a F2P title.

    Hard pass. What you buy right now isn't the full version, but the early access. It goes f2p next year. Dead game.

    Anyone picked it up then?
  • Deleted user 21 July 2017 19:04:45
    So this is out then though you wouldn't know it from the front page.

    I saw some streaming and it looked like a lot of hitting shit with a pick axe.

    Thought it was F2P but has loads of versions to buy for cash.

    So, what's the deal?

    God, what happened to Epic?
  • Deleted user 21 July 2017 19:21:25
    I'll wait until it's 'free' to try it then, ta.

    Paragon is probably more profitable than we think and that's the business plan. I have a friend who raves about it.

    I was browsing the store and had a look at this considering purchase and it had the 4 different tiered packs listed but also a version with a download button. I pressed it and it's currently downloading so I will see if it works, no idea if it's a glitch or something

    I'm fairly sure paragon did something similar, you still need to purchase a founders pack to play. Fairly sure you are just downloading a hefty trailer there.

    I had a wee look there and it prompted me to buy a pick of course but it was the upgrade packs it was showing me so the cheapest price was 17. Tempted to try it tbh

    Paragon started off the same I think. You had to buy a founder's pack initially but then it went F2P.

    Spent a few hours on it with two mates last night.

    The core gunplay, building mechanics and visuals (if you like the art style that is) are all spot-on, the overall concept is great. We had a lot of fun.

    That said, the sheer amount of quests, skill trees, characters and upgrade paths are all a little overwhelming to take in, there's hundreds of them, clearly designed (as with most F2P) to try and get you to part with cash to speed up the grind.

    How crap the grind is long-term remains to be seen, we were happily levelling up and crafting without even really trying last night, but I imagine it'll be a different story once you push towards the harder stages and need more gizmos etc.

    But yeah, like I said the game itself is great (think Gears Horde mixed with Minecraft), it's just a question of how willing you are to power through the F2P trimmings I guess.

    Tried it and indeed you can't play without a founder's pack. 14GB just to see the title screen :D

    Did you get the same cheaper prices as me though?

    @pogomeister Just checked and indeed there's a "Standard to Deluxe Upgrade" for 17. But not sure if a non playable version is considered as Standard. If you want to give it a go, let me know ;-)
