    It is well worth that. A very Borderlands type experience, I have only played SP at the mo, as such, I have joined a clan though, didn't realise is was 90% French chaps though...(even though it was called Le Clan, only joking) I don't speak French!. Obviously everyone is online at once so when you get a major Arkfall and you all arrive at it, it is brilliant.
    The co-op maps are also fun. I would imagine you could lose hour upon hour in the world, there is so much to do, a lot does repeat itself but you might get a new lovely weapon/shield and you rank up so it is all good.

    If you do buy, you will have to patch fuck loads of updates, so be aware :)
    I think I will take the plunge at 4 quid, need something to play before titanfall

    Thanks for the info

    They've added a lot to it, I see. Still the same janky shooter it always was though ^^

    So I got back into it with my girlfriend a few nights ago, and we're both enjoying it, a little empty but still fun.

    One thing that does annoy me a lot is the fact you can't change the mouse sensitivity for aim down sights, meaning it's painfully low.

    EDIT: Oh and PvP is a joke with grenade and rocket launcher spam.

    Ha a quick blast this morning and have enjoyed it so far. I have only seen one other player though (360). Is it that dead now, or is it because I'm still in a beginner area?

    It's not dead - I played an evening last week and it was very busy. Beginner area might be quieter.

    Thanks mate. Quite like the look if this. I only had a couple of hours but it seems fun

    Is it better to do a few main quests before going after any ark falls?

    @spindle9988

    I have found it doesn't matter, I'm only lvl 370 odd though, there are players in the thousands!

    Go for arkfalls when you see them. They're pretty nuts and not all that great for rewards, but can be fun to do every now and then. The newer ones seem cool, I like the Volge Warmaster fight, even if it's, like everything else, spammy :D

    It's still a bit lonely on this game. Went to an arkfall earlier and I was the only one there

    Are you on the euro server ?
    I played last night and it was full of players. Did a major arkfall and then a coop map.

    The shard handling can be a bit iffy. It's supposed to keep each version of the world well populated, but sometimes it'll fail a bit and leave you with a less populated shard.

    I finally got a sword tonight. It's a lot more fun than I thought it'd be, carving your way through all manner of creatures, Raiders and robots. Just a normal ninja sword though, not a lightsaber (though I think you can mod them).

    @DUFFMAN5

    I think so. I haven't changed any details. My nat is open. Just had another go and was the only person on an arkfall. I end up clearing the 3 waves of enemies, then the arkfall just explode

    Strange, I should be on Mon or wed night, if you are on. We could do some coop ?

    Sounds good

    I have seen 1 person in an hour. I am only level 103. I've travelled a bit of the map but not much

    Also. Are the arkfalls supposed to explode? Or are you meant to do something before they do?

    They're supposed to explode, once you're done killing things. Don't worry, it shouldn't cause any damage, it's just so there aren't permanent fragments all over the place.

    This is going free to play. Not fully detailed yet, but the info just now is current players who bought the game will get boosts and have more inventory space. Content will remain open to all, which is good.

    Can't say it's that surprising, the "DLC" has been some of the worst value stuff I've seen. It's almost all stuff added to the loot tables with little actual new content. The Gunslinger one was okay though.

    Yeah, the DLC has been really poor compared to normal MMO content updates.

    I wish they'd bring this to xbox one, I've always been a console gamer, so playing this on 360 was like a breath of fresh air for me. I loved every minute, even when the frame rate went to single figures during the Arkfalls.

    Yeah I liked it as well... but that framerate. XBox One version and I am in... this isn't a game for my PC.

    For anyone that doesn't visit the front page, this is Free to Play now. Almost nothing has changed as it was pretty much structured like a F2P game in the first place, so the only real change is you don't have to buy the game in the first place.

    The game hasn't changed massively. The shields now have armour plating that doesn't regenerate and needs topped up from a box near the old Ammo Caches, there are now deployable Spikes that have an area of effect boost like extra defence or ammo reg, and Stims that give temp boosts, as well as changes to the scoring system and balancing.

    Overall I'd definitely say it's improved since beta, but with small tweaks. Also, if you're more of a fan of the TV show, which I have to admit started off a bit slow and safe but got really good by the end, there are more missions in game that link to the show. Fight alongside Nolan, help Defiance out by sending them vaccine, or give the House of Tarr a helping hand in recovering some stolen goods.
