Played my first quest, I wish the tutorial could be a little better to ease you into that learning curve, but man, you know what, this game has got a lot going for it in terms of originality for sure.
And man, this is definitely the most impressive water in any game, ever. If you're half the nerd i am, it's almost worth getting it just to check it out, along with their weather and time of day system.
I loved the attention to detail in the planks of the ships floor, and the way water piles up in the cracks and it moves accordingly to the angle the ship is swaying around. I hope they do a tech talk on this later, this engine is really interesting.
Gameplay feels smooth and responsive, I'll need to play a little more to see how the combat really feels like, but it definitely did a really good first impression.
