Looks impressive so far!
check this short trailer :

More info :
In the attached movie you can see behavior of an enemy, who spotted the player and has hidden behind the closes object. Player is in no way able to predict from which way the AI will appear. All is dependant on the present situation whether will the enemy shoot precisely in the player location, or will he throw a grenade, or will he chaotically, in a very human way, burst a covering fire, not to risk getting hit. Unpredictability and complexity of behaviors automatically imply cautious and tactical play, rather than a simple charge, making the game a real battlefield.

There is a huge difference between the movement of a person with a big rifle and a person with a pistol. Realism also implies a wide range of behaviors depicting the combat itself. Current technology allows every single AI to scan the visible area and decide on the usefulness of nearby objects basing on their size, shape, and even material they're made of. The analysis of this data lets AI find the nearest safe cover, and react appropriately to current situation on the battlefield. Distance to the enemy, weapon held, sight and hearing range or enemy visibility are only a few factors for the system that chooses the optimal action for the moment.

Every game for the past 6 years have promised "smart AI." When something actually delivers I'll pay attention.

It uses the same engine (Techland's heavily improved Chrome Engine IIRC).

Yes but the terrain/scenery feel a bit too familiar. it would've been nice if they changed it a bit.
