Well it is as the Description says a Open world "Action RPG" so you are not bound to Quest, you can explore on your own with no boundary. This game got many promising features they either already implemented or will be implement in the future, like a mastery system which allowes you to decide how your character will evolve, maybe you want to be a powerfull mage then you will use your spells, and as you use them they will slowly "lvl up" same goeas for swords, if you use your sword all the time your character will master Sword fighting in no time :)
There is NO lvl-system as in games like Sacred, Torchlight, World of Warcraft and co.
This Game is still in Early Developement, thats why the Content is not realy that much at the moment and there are still a few bugs ingame.
But from Patch to Patch this game is getting better and better, the Developers are working with the Community to eleminate all bugs as soon as possible.
For now we will get presented one Big "starter-Island" which presents you at least some hours of playable content (if you like to grind a bit to get equipment).
Graphicly speaking is this game build on the powerfull Cry-engine which delivers a higly detailed world with a day and night cycle.
I will Update this Review every now and then when this games Content will be updated. (01.03.14)
