Looks really cool, like the art work.

I have read reviews that it becomes pay 2 win after a short while which I hope is not true.

Also would like to know how progress syncs across devices? I was extremely disappointed to find out PUBG only uses Facebook to do this, as I dont use Facebook anymore.

I just started playing, and I noticed the Game Center login/welcome banner when I started it up. Also, I use my Facebook strictly for gaming. I gave FB none of my (real)information, I know zero of my FB “friends” irl, I never post unless it’s a game dangling some premium currency at me, and I rarely if ever check my feed. My algorithms/meta data must be super annoying for FB. hehehe

So far this game’s ok. It’s definitely got the usual GameLoft m.o., good potential with poor execution. I’ve only played about half an hour or so, but I’ve played enough GL games to predict that I probably won’t be playing it by this time next week. Still it’s worth a try. It’s a different take on the tired mmo genre if nothing else.

So I went in on this to just check it out, was pleasantly surprised. It feels far more mmo-esque then I wouldve assumed. Its actually a lot of fun.

I got logged in to a server, played for a minute then was disconnected back to the main menu when attempting one of the quests.

Ah I played this last year. It was fun but about 2 hours or so in it turns into a grind fest. The level/power requirement for missions jumps. Of course this may have been fixed since I played it but the paywall just hit too early.

Been trying this most of the day. I've tried perhaps 10-15 times to start a game and only got in once. In that one time, my iPad Pro locked up and needed to be power reset.

Not a good start.

What I did play wasnt amazing, so my interest is already waning after looking forward to it for so long.
