    Looks promising. But I feel they’ll quickly abandon the new gameplay mechanics when they prove to not be polished enough instead of thinking them through and refining them.

    Could be interesting, but I don’t trust their PC ports.

    It’s both sad and inspiring that the best war simulator game where you play on the field as a soldier is still mountain blade.
