Really excited for Switch version. Any hint if the console versions are hitting this year?

Freelancer is one of my favourite ever games...

Austin over at Waypoint Radio sounded pretty down on it. It sounds like the game runs out of interesting stuff.

The cool thing about Freelancer was an open world with trading and piracy and emergent stuff married to scripted awesome missions. It sounds like this is heavy on the former and light on the latter, a sort of treadmill to nowhere.

Are there a lot of ship models?
Doesn't sound like it.

Supposedely mouse+KB scheme is not so hot :( Hopefuly it's not that bad, ehh...
This is also a massive bummer.

No they went with 8 or 9. I spent time 6 of them and 3 a great deal of the time. The game isn't really always about the ship but more the equipment. Its unique. I think for a 30 buck game that number is totally fine just due to the mix your getting.
8 or 9 is great. I was worried cause I only saw the box looking one, the fighter looking one, and the one that looked like a bottle with a cockpit and thrusters taped to the side

Didn't even know this was in development. I enjoyed the original on PS4. Lack of capital ships it's a bummer

There's the starter ship and 4 main classes of ship to upgrade to, the final 4 are variations on those, e.g. there's another bottle but with the cockpit taped to a different place and with different stats.

Been looking forward for this for awhile, we don't get enough space combat games! Trying to temper my expectations a little bit - this doesn't have a ton of depth and I shouldn't expect Mass Effect depth of lore - but TIE Fighter is one of my favorite games ever so as long as the flying and shooting is good I think I'll be happy.

Also there are mod tools coming at some point, so we could get more ships from the community.

My review. Rated it a BUy
Probably the most pure fun I have had with a PC game this year. Got some issues but in the end a damned solid replacement to Freelancer and channels that game STRONG.
sweet was waiting for your review

Nothing else you could say would make me more excited for this game.

To those asking about the preload, the devs have stated on the official Discord that the game would literally not be ready before the last moment, so it's not about the store not doing preloads (though that might also be a separate issue, I don't know about it).

Unfortunately I'll have to wait one more day before I can play it, but I can't wait. It was my most anticipated game for 2019 after Judgment.

Ya there are some...unique designs. Aint gonna lie Spacepig(the Durston) was my fav. It was bulky looked like it should never be in space and yet had weapons mounts everywhere and you can strap extra cargo bays on it. She aint pretty but shes pretty good

Just jumped in to fuck around for a few mins. It's basically a modern Privateer. Now trying to get my fucking bluetooth connection to figure itself out because both mouse control options (relative and virtual joystick) are insufferable.

Disappointing to hear m/k is sub-optimal.

I have a 360 pad, but I think I've used it like twice in the last 3 years, lol.

This game looks so appealing to me, it's like a modern Privateer + Freelancer. I think I'll be buying it...

Ok so I finally figured out my controller. I must be rusty as hell cuz I'm getting my shit pushed in left and right, so maybe old school difficulty was a mistake... But MY GOD it feels good to knife fight again in space.

I want to buy this game so bad but I'm entirely entranced by Fire Emblem, and September releases are right around the corner.... Decisions!

The Giant Bomb quicklook totally sold me on this, I hosted a Freelancer server in college and had a ton of fun playing out my little space smuggler life. Plus the pool sim in this looks really great!

Does anyone know how mining in this game works? I've bought a mining laser but I can't crack one of these rocks to save my life

I’m considering buying this, but is the game mostly 3D space dogfighting and that’s it or are there things like mining, trading, outposts, loot etc? I love space games that give you lots to do and get bored if it’s just ship battles

If I got ACG's review right, all of what you're asking for is in there. But better go see for yourself

With M/K being suboptimal, makes it easier to wait on PS4 version.

Hopefully will come out this year :)

ya there is for sure a reason it suggests gamepad. I got it working but it never felt say as good as Gamepad did so I switched back.

Using the mining scanner(need it) then scan in areas where resources are. Find a field on the map go to the field then scan

Missions to run goods, steal goods, mining, trading, and assassinations/bounties

Got jumped by pirates, died, booted to main menu. Tried to reload save, but it stalls at something like 5% and I have to force close the game.

I really hope I didn't just lose an hour's progress.

If you have a PS4, why not plug your PS4 controller into your PC and play it that way? You can even set the buttons to "PS4 Buttons" in the game options.

Also, all you guys without a good controller plugged into your PC at all times are leaving a lot of great gaming options on the floor.

I like a tighter story line but does Outlaw still retain the open-ended style of the first game? Basically is it sort of Freelancer-esque with linear story where you can diverge from into open-ended content when you want?

Good stuff with the Hotas so far. Only done a few missions but enjoying the vibe.

Given my setup, I strictly play M/KB on pc.
And it's fine frankly.

I did check that option and I'm also using DS4Windows but I just cannot find a gamepad control scheme...

There seem to only be presets for flight sticks and m+k. When I'm using the Dualshock square is confirm and L2 is back/cancel. This can't be right. Am I missing something or did someone get it to work?
