Been having a go at this. Anyone else picked it up? It's bloody beautiful, possibly the nicest looking game I've ever seen, and generally it plays really smoothly. It's not without its issues, though, in fact little bits of the design are starting to grate. I've put in about ten hours or so now, and it is definitely on the road to that overwhelming Elder-Scrolls-esque objectives overload thing that I can't really be bothered with these days. There's also a lot of scavenging/crafting fetch quest shit that I'm expecting I'll get bored of at some point (but haven't yet, to be fair, they've not made it essential beyond the absolute basics like health and ammo). The facial animations are also ME-Andromeda bad at times, and whoever directed the narrative has obviously never heard of the maxim "show, don't tell", as it dictates the central story thread to you through NPC mouthpieces like an infant at times.
That, er, sounds a lot more negative than I meant it to. It's actually been really good fun so far for the most part. I'm guessing it was developed by a British team as there are little hints here and there, I just found a "remnant of the old world" data drive or whatever (a little bit of text, world-building and all that), which took a pot shot at the privatisation of the NHS, which was unexpected.
