Did anyone try the Xbox beta?
This game has been out on PC for a few years now, but I knew absolutely nothing about it going in. I gave it a try and had a blast with the warrior and the wizard.
I'm not a fan of MMO's in general. It's the gameplay that gets to me. Firing off abilities from a hotbar and waiting for cooldowns is okay, but I get bored of it quickly. Watching my character do all the cool stuff while I tap buttons in some ideal rotation is pure meh.
This game is much more action oriented.
The combat with the warrior felt visceral and meaty. It reminded me a lot of Dark Souls actually, blended with a bit of something like Devil May Cry or God of War perhaps? The wizard was just as fun, maybe more so. Firing off magic missiles, fireballs, and chain lightning was a ton of fun. I could stun a group with chain lightning and then circle around and finish them off with a backstab with my dagger or beat them to death with my staff. It felt like a really good action game.
It looks good in 4K HDR. The art style reminds me a lot of Dark Souls, particularly the armor designs. The character creator is insane for insane people.
The UI is kind of clunky. I was able to get accustomed to it fairly quickly though.
Overall I was impressed! I'm always looking for good games my friends and I can play co-op and this one is now high on the list.
