Releases on Tuesday in NA, soon after in Europe.

Walkthrough on gametrailers with developer comments: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gc-09-section-8/55076

There are multiple parts there, so check them all out if that one lights your fire.

I love the idea of dropping into battle like this, and the enviornments look neat, with polished graphics for 360 that should look better on PC.

Anyone interested?

The SP campaign acts like a springboard to get you into the multiplayer game

Meh... Sounds like a mod for UT3... Its the same engine as well. I just hate these games with a joke of a single player content...

I agree.

He did talk about there actually being a story and such... I'll see what reviews say about the singleplayer.

Play in Single Player Campaign, Online Multiplayer, or Instant Action on all of the multiplayer maps against a robust and competitive AI

Meeeeh!

Busier forums I poke my head into seem to be filled with people saying this game is actually quite good.

Here are some good youtube gameplay vids that make it look pretty good, I think... did anyone get this?

The sprinting is cool, as well as the sounds of the guns. The first portion of the SP campaign looked terrible. Looks like carbon copy of quake 4/2 intro.

Reminds me of Tribes. The vast barren landscape dotted with hi-tech installations is also very reminiscent of Tribes and while that look was nice a decade(?) or so ago when Tribes first game out, nowadays it makes the game look rather drab.

It's important to know that this game is all about the multiplayer action. In fact, it was designed specifically for online play. The single-player campaign, though entertaining, is essentially a glorified tutorial. If you're one of those few Xbots that doesn't have a Gold subscription, or if your broadband connection is lacking for PC gaming, you'll want to take a pass. :o

I've been playing 360 demo a fair bit and it's pretty cool. Running is cool, kinda like the GI Joe movie and the mechs are fun.

My thoughts exactly. Especially with the massive gun firing into space...

That's taken right from Q2\Q4.

The shooting looks pretty bland as well, but I may give it a try.

The beta is similar to tribes, but hard to shake the Unreal engine feel. I'd class the mp beta as a poor mans Tribes.

This game is on clearance for $20 at a local Target store. I liked Tribes back in the day, is this game worth picking up? Does anyone still play it?

$20 at Target? Sounds good to me! Do they have any other deals going on?

They also have Resident Evil 5 for $20, but since I'm located in Minnesota YMMV.

Is there anybody playing it? I saw they patched it recently and added DLC which is weird because I didn't think there would be hardly anybody playing it.

$5.90 on gogamer right now in their 48 hour madness, if anyone cares. I ordered it, because why not for that cheap.
