This releases in a couple weeks. Anyone seen anything new and exciting?
The pre-order bonuses look pretty weak. On Steam you get blueprints for a special weapon. Generally pre-order weapons end up not being anything special. Since the game makes such a fuss about weapons and crafting, I imagine this specific weapon will ultimately be useless.
Anywhere you pre-order also gets you Be the Zombie mode, where you can invade other player's games and hunt them. Sounds halfway decent, but I read that players can set their lobbies to not allow people into their games. So what happens if everyone does that? You have access to a mode where there's no lobbies for you to join. That's dumb.
One thing that has me intrigued is the parkour system. Here's a vid:
It kind of looks like a combination of Shadow of Mordor and Far Cry 3. If that's the case, I could see having a lot of fun.
Steam has the game listed at $60 right now, with a four pack going for $180. Amazon has the single version for $50. I'm hoping it goes on sale sometime soon at GMG or Nuuvem. If there's a really good sale, I might grab it now. Otherwise, I'll wait until the summer sale or something. The co-op could be a good time, but there doesn't seem to be a really good reason to get it right now at full price.
