    I fear this may be being overshadowed with the announcement of a certain new GPU.

    This game makes me want to buy a PS4 - suffice to say, I would've snapped this up in a heartbeat on PC. I think when the remastered Wipeout comes out, I may have to indulge.

    I got this yesterday and am really enjoying it. There are some very formulaic elements in it a la open world games, but it's such a fresh lick of paint on it, it seems fresher than it is. Plus as stated it's beautiful and reeks of effort put into making it feel solid.

    I love the look of this game but I have struggled to get in to these open world fetch quest games, they all seem to take too long to get going, so I have bought and barely played Ass. Creed, Fallout 4 and Far Cry.

    Skyrim did work for me for quite a while as I liked exploring the environments and some genuinely funny stuff would happen, whilst I never finished it I got a good 40odd hours out of it before tiring, but I think I like being pushed along a path in faux openness with some story ala Tombraider suits me more, but I have a Pro hooked to a 4K HDR TV….it kind of seems rude not too…..

    It's hardly Breath of the Wild, but I'll pick this up in 3 or 4 years when I start catching up on the PS4.

    About 10 hours in. Really enjoying it so far.
    Did you try Redout?
    It's a really great anti grav racer.

    I saw a display for this game in Tesco the other day - the promotional art is beautiful--easily some of the best I've ever seen--and it sounds very much like the game lives up to it. Will be checking out some gameplay vids later as I do not have a PS4.
