Yeah I'm kinda glad that they went full next gen only (or current gen), since a lot of gamers doesn't pretty much care about last gen (not all). Styx MoS is the really first next gen only titel on the market right now. AC Unity has to take the second place
Focus Home Interactive is a small publisher who publish good games (eg Sherlock Holmes games and the recent new SH; Crimes & Punishement) so they don't have that HUGE marketing budget like other big publishers, so they pretty much rely on youtube, facebook, twitter, the internet pretty much. But it's nice that they get noticed.
I think they game will get a solid 7-7.5/10 in today "gaming standards" this generation. Trophies aren't that difficult but it wil be time consuming.
Most of those so called "gamers" these days will try no nitpicking every element to protait it as a "bad game". Pure stealth games are my thing, and there aren't much pure stealth based game these days (Shadow of Mordor and Assassin Creed doesn't count )
Reviews of big outlet gaming news aren't out yet, but I'm watching reviews from gamers themselves and so far they are good. And one youtuber Elder Geek or something was nitpicking about the "outdated engine" (Unreal engine 3) because the enviroment and art looks "blend".
This is a good review and the story is surprisiling good from what I heard.
