    Will this be using the FB3 engine? I thought recent revelations about ME4 suggested the engine doesn't play well with RPGs?

    Surprised there hasn't been more chatter about this on here. People hesitant because of Andromeda?

    Looks like what andromeda should have been.

    This looks incredible. I was awestruck watching the trailer / gameplay.

    I'm taking everything with a huge pinch of salt. Look at The Division and how it first got revealed and teased to how it actually was when it was released. Will be keeping an eye on it though.

    Same. It was very scripted like the early Division footage. I don't think it'll look as good as that.

    God I hate seeing someone say that :(

    Yes the some of their latest games have been subpar but that’s because everyone holds them in such high esteem and the more recent games haven’t reached their high expectations rather than the games being a pile of crap.

    Anyhows I have faith as Drew Karpysh is back. He’s basically wrote some of the best Story driven games out there. As well as the Darth Bane trilogy.

    The only game I haven’t played that he’s been behind is Jade Empir.

    Looks awesome. I doubt it will look that great on release but I'm happy to be proven wrong.

    The lead designer on Anthem passed away at the end on July, I wonder if that will have an impact on the games release and quality.

    Yeah - I suspect that PC is where it will be at to play this title in all its glory. PS4 will be nerfed to hell. Will be interesting to see what the X can do though. But I think this game needs to be on the true next gen consoles. Ps5 or whatever it ends up being called. But thats probably a few years off yet.

    Sorry to hear that :( It will inevatibly have an impact but hopefully the game is far enough along to remain true to the lead designers vision.

    New video. Looks dull as dishwater. It's had a massive downgrade as predicted.

    This looks a lot like Dynasty Warriors meets Borderlands/Destiny with jetpacks.

    Not sure if want.

    My, that does look dull! Best thing about the clip - the sounds are pretty good.

    Think I'll pass, as it stands now.
