    Anyone else interested in this? It's out the same day as Rage 2 (May 14th), but is obviously a very different type of game. The puzzles and stealth mechanics don't look too challenging to be fair, and it's seems to be a guided/linear adventure, but I'm still really looking forward to it. Visually it looks great and, from what I've seen, the voice acting seems pretty good too. The setting is quite harrowing (rat/plague/inquisition infested medieval France), so it'll be dark in all senses of the word. The main thing for me is that it's shaping up to be a well-made story/character-focused title, which might be just the antidote for open world burnout.

    I will. Looks to be a mix of Assassins Creed and The Last of Us.

    A small insight into creating the rat mechanics (PS Blog).

    I hear that they spent 100 hours motion capturing Luis Suarez, just to get it right.

    First review. Pretty much what I was hoping for.

    Getting middling reviews elsewhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,748 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    81% on Metacritic. Guess that's middling these days.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 50,983 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    I didn't look at Metacritic, just eurogamer and another one as most media outlets are ignoring this one. Going to read up more on it. I'd prefer a game to have flaws and be interesting than a bland triple A game.

    Played the demo of this last year and loved the feel, happily paid €20 in GameStop back in November.

    Started up last night and played through the first 5 chapters, mostly straightforward and basic gameplay with just a few sections so far that were a little tricker and required extra attempts, I think I've made the correct decisions so far regarding the upgrade path for weapons and equipment.

    The look and feel are great and the voice acting is top notch, this will be my main game for the next week or 2 and hopefully it maintains the excellent start.

    It's a great game indeed.

    I'll finish this today or tomorrow, brilliant stuff so far, definitely ramps up difficulty wise but nothing very strenuous.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,146 ✭✭✭dudeeile


    Main story finished, difficulty definitely increased nearing the end but ultimately nothing too taxing.

    Great little story and characters and although a pretty linear experience still thoroughly enjoyable. The boss battles and some other encounters had neat mechanics and was only really let down by their ease of completion but that's the sort of game this was. If it wasn't for the extensive backlog I'd happily kill some more hours collecting items and scouting a bit more.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,791 ✭✭✭sweetie


    Considering getting this. It's only 24 quid on ebay.

    20 quid in CEX on xbox. 30 on ps4

    Acky duck! 😀 Best line of the game

    Only up to chapter 5 but I'm enjoying it. Moves along at a nice pace and the fact it's linear is actually a good thing for me. Wasn't happy we had to
    sacrifice the pig
    in the barn :(
