Game looks interesting. Currently doing SWTOR since I finally got my new computer. Does the game play well on mouse and keyboard compared to controller? Curious since the gameplay is supposedly action rpgish. Also, how well would my new rig run it? 8gb Mushkin Ram, i5 2400 3.1ghz quad core, HD Radeon6870.
The game controls great with both. It really depends on which class you play and how you map your buttons. Navigating menus is a little cumbersome with the controller since you use your right analog stick as the mouse pointer. The game is totally action, so with a controller it feels like Monster Hunter. I prefer using mouse and keyboard because of the camera speed advantage. I play a Warrior so mobility is key and I just can't attack, move and swing the camera like I want to with ease using the controller. Now on my Lancer or Berzerker it feels just fine since they don't need to be as mobile.
Your PC should run it like gang busters. Its not a sloppy mess like SWTOR's Hero Engine. The game runs on Unreal Engine 3, which is like 8 years old and looks amazing. It scales really well too. I posted a benchmark tool for the game a few pages back.
Review will be forthcoming.
