Theres a lot to unpack in a short amount of time but I think it looks great. I was a bit worried after the anouncement that they were going to reign it in a bit since all they said was it going to have a character creator, and to me this was signalling 'it'll be even more soulsy' not so apparently. This shit looks wild and i'm all for it.
It isnt a graphical powerhouse (and neither was the first) but hopefully that means it still performs well on consoles.
The closed alpha runs from May 24th to June 2nd. Invites seems to be random but i'm sure they'll have an open beta later like the first game did.
