By the way, what are ”world events” described in the road map? The game doesn’t have any multiplayer functions.I hope the game at least has some sort of decent, coherent story, even if it isn’t some narrative masterpiece. I find it hard to care about a game if the main character doesn’t have at least a modicum of motivation to achieve a larger goal.
In any case, I have no expectations whatsoever—it kinda blowed my mind that this is releasing next week, it completely blindsided me. Probably not a day one for me regardless or the reception, but might give it a go later in the summer.
Much quieter than I expected in this footage, in the trailers there's constant action accompanied by a soundtrack but much of this is just driving across an empty landscape with only the sound of your vehicle or sneaking through dark areas.
This might be what throws people off the most. The trailers do make it look a lot like Doom with constant action but it is an open world RPG with a lot of down time and driving around. As long as people go in with that expectation in mind I think they'll be fine.
