    I'll play it just because I'm dying for a decent RPG, but it's not an open world. I suspect this will be more akin to Deus Ex (fairly narrow zones, moving from one to the next) as far as the scope of the game than anything Bethesda has put out. They've been royally fucking up for several years now, but give them their due - they make pretty great open worlds.

      My understanding is that it is going to be like Mass Effect and Borderlands, leaning more towards the Borderlands.

      Will travel between areas be seamless? No, they'll be separate levels, but it seems like each one will be large and open to exploration. Think Big MT or Zion Canyon from Fallout New Vegas, or the side quests on random planets in Mass Effect.

      Overall, I am fine with that. I like seamless open world games as much as the next guy, but it hasn't ever been a killer feature for me.

    Watching gameplay and the trailer it looks a ton like FONV and borderlands mixed so I'm pretty excited. It's really a breath of fresh air honestly to have a game that's just a really good rpg and none of this games as a service rpg crap. Just give me a good story driven experience and I'm happy. This and cyberpunk are the only games I'm excited for right now and that's kind of sad.

      Yeah aside from a few XCOM-like games coming out soon, this and Cyberpunk are the main upcoming games I'm excited for as well. It's fine with me, honestly; I still have a backlog hundreds of games...

      Yeah aside from a few XCOM-like games coming out soon, this and Cyberpunk are the main upcoming games I'm excited for as well. It's fine with me, honestly; I still have a backlog hundreds of games deep, many from like 6 years ago!
