    From all the stuff shown at this E3 this also looked somewhat promising aside from the voices, although it could go either way and needs some more info:


    Show Spoiler


    UbiSoft is running some weird sort of PR campaign for this where PC gamers are apparently supposed to "show there is interest" for it, possibly inspired by Dark Souls: http://www.dsogaming.com/news/ubiso...vision-petition-almost-hits-its-initial-goal/

    There's a difference between players voluntarily begging a company to make a PC version of Dark Souls because the game's awesome, and Jewbisoft soliciting for people to beg for a game nine years before the fucking thing's even released.

    Holy shit am I grumpy today, fuck me. :lol:

    It's from MASSIVE. So there's a good chance it isn't total utter French shit.

    The NPCs sound like they're on a sunday picnic.

    Hard to really say from that video how the final game will be, that thing was heavily scripted.

    Those NPCs were voiced by human players, 'cause it's a co-op shootah.

    Weird. I thought the voices were actual in-game voices, and that the game itself is taking a meta piss-take on the whole MMOShooter thing.

    That's because the voices were semi-professionally produced and didn't sound like lispy dorks/fratbros/12-year-olds screaming incoherently into cheap and staticy headsets.

    Ahhh and here I thought it would actually depict the casual attitute of guys like that after doing this shit for so long.

    This could have actually been interesting, if it weren't for the whole Borderlands angle.

    RPG about rebuilding the word after ITZ? This can be fun even when Flu as cause is somehow uncreative and bland.

    I am not sure, but isn't this an MMO of some sort? I watched the video, purdy graffx and everything, could've been the first Tom Clancy paranoidfest I'd have played since RS6-RS, but the concept of a console-centric MMO makes me wonder what the hell they were thinking there.

    Pure PR bullshit. That petition is 100% fake, port is probably being already done and Ubisoft is just trying to look cool.

    Oh shit it's another generic 3rd person cover shooter (and what's worse - MMO too) but it ain't coming to PC?!

    DRAMA! PETITION!

    The problem is just that Ubisoft is too greedy to put up servers for those lowly stinky PC players, whereas they get a free ride on XB Live/PSN.
