    I can only speak for current state of the game - its a crap version of Ark.

    Got a refund after about 90min of play.

    Would not recommend.
    What were some of the major issues?
    Optimization is definitely a key concern especially if you take into consideration how long Snail has claimed to be working on this game. Animations definitely fall flat. Swinging a weapon at an enemy/player looks the exact same as chopping down a tree.  Audio needs works, a lot of disconnect between action and sound but it could be down to the random lag which relegates back to optimization. Definitely looks like it'll go f2p by next year if Snail's track record is anything to go by.

    Can get a better idea from this video:



    Looks like a pre-alpha build. Not sure why they decided to launch EA at this stage.
    My guess is they feel they can start generating revenue while continuing to work on the game for two more years.

    They probably arent wrong.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I think this was a minimum-effort game on Snail's part, they just wanted some return on the IP they had laying around for so long.

    It will be forgotten in a month's time...

    The only reason I can think of is they are desperate for money to keep going. But early access is a very dangerous option imo, if it doesn't go well it might kill the game before the official launch.
