This game looks incredibly generic and uninteresting. But I'm not a shooter guy so maybe it's doing something unique and I just can't tell?
A variation of Destiny thats not anchored by the albatross of PvP balance and willing to actually have moderately decent loot/skill tress, prettymuch. OR a variation of Warframe that is toned down enough to have a challenge to it.
That said, the fact that its not a live service/ongoing thing, means it probably has fairly limited potential to build on the foundation they've got.
Also who TF knows about the story, the demo has the blandy boring bits, so there could be crazy stuff once you get out of the valley, but the demo is just fighting generic mooks/bandits/rebel dudes in the human zone.
Largely it would fit in the same kind of area as Remnant from the Ashes, or Shadow Warrior 2. Probably not outstanding, and maybe feeling more like a prototype then anything, but fun enough as a co-op romp with buddies. Though they've stated 25-40 hour campaign, and the demo was like, 1.5 of that, so there definitely could be a some buried depth.
The big problem so far I see, is the guns are woefully generic. Like those legendary/exotic tiers that arne't in the demo really need to up the ante to be exciting for this formst.
