Huxley preview!

Neocron was brilliant in it's day. It was like a breath of fresh air when aiming really mattered. I fondly remember taking down giant robots solo with the use of cover and the pvp was manic. Then the French company running things, who were ***** to begin with (the open beta they ran they basically considered a test so let duping and xploits run wild then ironed these out for launch, by which time the games rep was in the toilet) decided they wanted to force grouping and made huge sections of the game unplayable for everyone but clans. But for 6 months it was a cyberpunk mmofps with heaps of atmosphere and where levelling wasn't really relevant. If Huxley is that good, sign me up!

i absolutely feel the same way, the atmosphere in neocron was second to none and no other game has been able to replicate that and i have been searching for a replacement ever since leaving. also the skill system was brilliant as you could tweak the char so much to fit your playstyle.

the fact you could solo your own rares was a great idea and also you could go anywhere in the game and still be able to get the parts for all the rares (instead of being restricted to grinding the same place). yes they got so many things right in this game and no game company has even come remotely close to recreating it. as sleepless says if huxley is that good sign me up!

But from what I'm reading it's not a true mmo, like I said just a glorified game of Battlefield with town-like lobbies. I originally thought it was like Planetside, but it doesn't look like it.

doesn't sound like that to me at all
