    Interesting, doesn't look half bad! Wildstar like graphics.

    The graphics I can actually forgive. Sure, it's a bit cutesy. But this does look like an interesting game. Kind of like a lighter version of Conan Exiles.

    I know some have suggested the Founder Pack pricing is a bit high but those two upper tier packs include copies for a friend and 2 friends!

    So an early access sandbox game where you are supposed to work together to kill monsters instead of killing one another. Also a complete lack of punching trees and rocks for materials.

    I've been on the Alpha for 2 years.
    Now they've gave me for free the 90$ Founder Pack and my vBucks, gg!

    It's one cool beans game, quite different on its gameplay meant to be played together, it's a massive grind through skills/getting shinies, but it's to see where Early Access takes the game!

    The game is already decently stable and optimized, recommending to try it out. o/
    Also, I have one extra copy.

    *sigh* the game looks fantastic, but I'm not sure I want another Early Access. Damnit, can AAA-companies just stop doing early access? I want to curse more than every episode of South Park combined.

    Aye, another incomplete EA title on the market.

    Cant Wait until some of these reach a finished state.

    Of course not sure that day will ever really come, or if I will still care, but whatever.

    This game was in beta for years and in development for years before.

    Problem is that they had a good idea 6 years ago when they started. To make kind of Orcs Must die + Minecraft base building. But than since the development took ages, the whole got outdated as it gets.

    So for years they tried to change the game somehow. But they didnt manage.

    Its basically Orcs Must Die 2. Saying its base building survival game is misleading and false advertisement.

    You have a Co-OP instanced missions with timer. Let say 20 minutes. First 10 minutes you run around trying to gather material and build some kind of fort and traps ( Orcs must die ) And than the attack happened in waves ( Orcs must die ) and you have to survive it for 10 minutes. The instance closes, and you are ready to browse for next game.


    The EA is attempt to milk the game a little bit. Before they go F2P and than close it

    20 minute missions. Instanced maps. When you finish you go back to server browser

    I think any developer team who cant get something that basic down should likely be ignored. at least based on the description you just gave

    Having played in the betas, this game isn't worth a dime. It was supposed to be free and now all of a sudden is a 40 dollar box price. Hard pass.

    It's still meant to be free I think.

    This is just the usual early access founder packs, once the game is fully released then it's available for everyone, this is more what you'd call packs of shinies to start the game with.

    Played Alpha for 2 years now, solid stuff for EA imo. Love the style, and the Unreal engine really plays off it well.

    This does look alot like 7 Days to Die. More like a kiddie version of 7 Days.

    This game in an example of why not to reveal something too early.

    I recall hearing about this 6 years ago. I've been hyped up about it with each new announcement, but by now I'm kind of "ok".

    Fun game to play from what I've heard. Just wish I've first seen it a month ago, not 6 years - would have thrown my wallet at them, as the irresponsible millennial I am.

    I think the game looks solid,i am a big fan of Epic but these lame ass terms like "founder's packs" need to stop.

    You create a product,you sell/advertise a product and that's it,cut out the BS.
    Stuff like this turns me off,even if i like the game it can completely turn me away from Epic as a whole entity because i don't like marketing gimmicks and tactics,i like honest businesses selling a product.

    This is in reality saying,...give us money now and we will let you in ahead of everyone else,seriously wtf is that and tons of developers are pulling that crap.

    Give us early founder's pack and we will give you items and unlock heroes...NO you won't,if i give you any money it is for a COMPLETE game,the SAME game as everyone else and i want to EARN my keep not BUY IT.

    I don't think it is.

    Fortnite keeps itself under wraps most of the time, the NDA make so majority don't even know that this game exists, and its looks/setting are attractive by default.

    So the game will most likely perform quite well once it gets more widely public.

    Been part of the alpha for awhile now, neat game. Definitely worth checking out imo, quite a different experience than anything out there atm.

    It reminds me of a game I used to alpha test for, Monster Madness Online, which unfortunately didn't see the light of the day, as the company focused on DD2, which turned out to be a wise decision for them.

    Why, why, why is this an online game? It would have been a brilliant single player game!

    But online only? I don't think so. Not unless there's a single player version that can be played offline and MODDED!

    Looking forward to that one, looks rly interesting!
