    This is funded by (partly) PUBG money: https://venturebeat.com/2017/10/23/...unds-dev-invests-in-gaming-capital-firm-esdf/

    And it looks like this ESDF is "focused on producing PC games": https://esdfmgt.com

    PvP and PvE multiplayer, "raid with your friends"

    Sounds like they're doing things like "shared world experience" and/or "a game as a service." Hope not, I guess.

    That's not what I want. Hopefully, the multiplayer components the developer mentioned will be implemented in a similar manner to Dark Souls, and players can chose to opt out if they prefer experiencing the game exclusively offline.

    - Looks like they're taking many hints from Souls games, from combat mechanics to intertwined single-and-multi player experience. Campaign, co-op PvE, and PvP will be intertwined in one big open world.

    - Then again, they want players able to host their own private servers with their own settings.

    - You can craft ships, and sail around the world and raid villages with your friends.

    - Campaign is non-linear and has various choices and consequences.

    - It's six months in to development. So expect a long wait, I guess!

    Well it's six or seven months in development, so I think the current real game probably looks like a little more than greybox heaven.

    That's most likely the case. A "beta" will hit in 2018, and will most likely be a vertical slice to help with networking, but despite the studio planning to release this year, I bet it will slip into 2019. Still, I'm happy that single player is a fully-featured option. I was concerned they were planning to make this a stealth "games as service" release, and just didn't want to attract warranted controversy early in development.

    I quite like the art direction for the giants, they manage to retain a nice concept art look.

    You can see some of that greybox world on that barren cliff face.

    Hopefully the map is full of handy points-of-interest markers, so you don't miss any of the country's hot-spots while on your trip.

    Game developers are the real rape culture.
    They keep raping my childhood/adolescence.

    Hel.

    Also doesn't a valkyrie appear someplace around the end? I think there was a multiplayer valkyrie skin.

    In multiplayer, there were binders full of Norse women.

    It would be great if they could partner up with Ninja Theory and have Senua as a DLC character.
