    I've been itching for some good gunplay and this game seems to have a solid coop.

    Hoping to play with some of the old NNG bros!

    Hope everyone else is doing well :)

    Hey Ghost. I played the beta but I'm not really sold on it. I think it's probably a little too expensive for me.

    I watched a coop vid on youtube and it got me interested. I liked the realistic TTK.
    Wish I had played the beta. Damnit.

    You got a link for that vid? It's not one of those incredibly scripted ubisoft playthroughs is it?

    I was curious about the game as it seemed cool from the first trailer I saw. But I barely play games anymore now because my job makes it hard to spend time on things.

    I thought the graphics looked pretty good, and the teamwork was strong.
    The main commentator wasn't overly annoying and highlighted what's required to complete a mission.

    I think I might buy it!

    Thanks. Watched it. I would be a little mixed on it. Looks cool and some depth to it. But still quite a bit easier than Arma. But functions better.

    Now, I hate Arma BS AI with aimbotting from miles away. And that game can be super clunky.
    But sneaking seems a little easy in that.
    There also isn't much punishment for full auto. Ammo caches everywhere. Not much recoil and not much higher chance of being detected.

    TTK seems good like you said.

    Overall, I would probably play this with a group. But I could probably wait for a sale.

    Hope a few guys get into this and I'll catch up later.

    I'll most likely also wait for a sale. It looked really good. I wish I played the beta though.

    I've been playing it for 2 days and I'm in love with it. Haven't had this much fun in a game in a while.

    I played it at first on an old 780 and really couldn't push it that hard.
    Upgraded to a 1080 and am running everything maxed. That alone makes the game shine and feel so immersive. Truly beautiful work they did on the landscape.

    So far I've only played SP with the AI squad but I think they're actually really good. I'm exploring Bolivia taking on different missions and just tactically fucking drug lords up.

    I'm hooked. Already got my monies worth.

    You should have waited on that 1080, the 1080ti would be the far better choice.

    I wish I saw this thread the other day! I've been playing it and have been having a blast.

    My only concerns is the answer to the question "So what happens when you finish the story?" because outside of the side missions and weapon/attachment pickups I don't know what else there is past the story.

    But my general rule of thumb for if a game is worth it or not is if I can get at minimum one hour per dollar spent. If I can get that the game is completely worth it. No where else today can you get an hours worth of entertainment for a dollar.

    I can absolutley get that from wildlands.


    Here's a list of everyone else in NNG I'm aware of who are destabilizing Mexican drug cartels in Bolivia
