    Only single player though are you "hot seating"? Looks interesting but nothing in the way of reviews, on my wish list to keep an eye on it.

    On steam, there is "Online Co-op, Local Co-op, shared / split screen".

    Nowadays, every time I see a campfire in a trailer, my 'tedious-survival-gameplay-elements-alarm' goes off.

    Looks interesting though.

    It's definitely co-op.

    There's actually a few previews out there from gaming sites. If you do a search for "preview" instead of review you'll find a few.
    The general consensus seems to be that the "simulation" elements are superb but that the combat is very mediocre.
    The ones I read tend to say that the rest of the game props up combat to be "passable" enough.

    Basically, a fun exploration/adventure game with some fitting, but not overbearing, survival elements(essentially, you have to stuff your realistic backpack with supplies for your journeys) and average combat.

    I really like the concept of a genuine inventory and pack.  Having to toss your backpack on the ground during combat because it weighs you down is a nice touch.

    Combat looks awful, interesting concept though.

    Is it something along the lines of Skyrim with frostborn and basic needs mods?
    What do they mean with open world, is there a story you follow through like skyrim or is it total freedom?

    I like their philosophy it is as i like it and the game is somewhat similar to Atlas or Ark whatever,you know an open world rpg.

    I am just not so sure it looks good enough,like i already have Atlas that i feel is pretty good.
    The oddity of this game seems to be the enemies,some weird looking ideas there.

    IDK it might be ok,i definitely wouldn't go all in just yet however listening to them talk about what an rpg experience should be like,they o at least "get it"or so the ysay,how it is implemented we have to see if just words.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Yeah this game looks awesome. Does seem a little rough around the edges but I like what they are doing. Ill wait to see some reviews, not for the score but to more see if there is any game breaking bugs I need to wait out.

    Got it pre-ordered and preloaded! Can't wait!

    Have it on the wish list, waiting for the reviews after the first month or so.

    'This does not apply just to ED but SC or any other game. What they will get is Rebirth/X4, likely prettier but equally underwhelming and pointless. 

    It is incredibly difficult to design some meaningfull leg content that would fit a space ship game - simply because it is not a leg game.

    It is just huge resource waste....'
