"We got our inspiration from Devil May Cry, God of War and Arkham Asylum," he explains. "Those are the games we use for what our combat loop will look like. Using those three games as our base, I wanted to build a game that had intimate, visceral combat. When we looked at the field out there, I didn't want to build another FPS. It's very competitive, very hard to get into. No way, I'm not going to do that. I looked at MOBAs, but I didn't want to do a me-too MOBA. There's too many of those coming out. I didn't want to do a combat RPG or action RPG, because there are a lot of those coming out too. Has anyone really done an action combat multiplayer game? We sat down and we all tried to come up with one. No one has done one." Not true

    Huh...  I kind of like the pseudo-historical caricatures.  Having the guy behind the world of Dishonored explains a lot though.  The make-or-break issue for me will be knowing what the actual game type is.  Are we talking FPS?  MOBA?  Something else?

    Still, I'm a fan of Antonov, so I'm a bit excited.

    You make me like charity

    I hope its more of a third person action game rather than a isometric style moba.  And I hope that free to play doesnt mean. he who pays the most wins the most.

    That trailer looks really nice. And the idea of this game is very interesting. However, with the guy from Half Life 2 and Dishonored behind it i really hope its not limited to First Person. Still very interesting anyway.

    hope it has some moba elements. trailer was cool but didn't really show anything I will wait till actual gameplay is shown.

    He's a visual design director.  He has no (official) part in determining gameplay factors like camera positioning.

    Sounds like they are trying to mix TF2 style FPS and MOBAs.

    that quote gives me hope

    But he says no one has done a game like this but thats false
