Instead of posting this info and sticking it why don't you submit the info with the edit feature.  I think the site is like WIKI that way.  I would but i don't know much about this game except it should be fun.

Ok a couple of things:

1. IS the deck of 52 confirmed? The closest related info I found was that "the concept would be there" but the exact reference to cards might not be in.

2. There is 14-16 hours of gameplay W/O doing side missions/quests. This is strictly sticking to the main story arc not killing one civilian or anything not necessary to the story.

3. I've not seen anything on difficulty modes. The closest reference is a "legendary mode" which I've heard is not a difficulty mode or something, and that it might resemble "Playground of Destruction" mode in Mercs 1 (please realize I have not played Mercs 1 so I have no idea what that means).

4. Last but not least, I'm pretty sure the "Tactical Nuke" is the "Nuclear Bunker Buster", although I'm not sure..

Nice guide otherwise!

Your right about the Nuke name thanks

And yeah, the deck system is back but details are scant as of now

1. it is confirmed there is NO deck of 52, despite it being one of the cooler game mission mechanics ive seen in a while. Capture/kill targets ARE still in the game, with each faction and some mission characters giving you contracts to capture/kill a specific target in the same manner, just without the cards.

2. During a demo video, a dev put the playthrough for story missions at under 30 hours. Then you have to add dozens of side missions, challanges that your freinds give you, collection/destruction quests, just screwing around et freaking al for dozens more hours.

3. On the forum, they listed 4 difficulty modes from easy to Legendary. haven't  found any word of a post-story sandbox wondering around blowing stuff up mode.

4. yup
