Great thread, Muhammad. :)

This game reminds me of Half-Life 2 and BioShock. I'm sure the PC version won't be a poorly optimized console port. The developers, Arkane Studios, are the same guys that made Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. It was made with the Source engine and during the game's development, they worked on a Half-Life game called "Return to Ravenholm". It was cancelled but it shows that they had a working relationship with Valve (which is primarily a PC game developer). I don't know what their experience is with Unreal Engine 3 but judging by the screenshots and videos, I'd say they're quite talented. From what I've read online so far, the game is using a custom version of Unreal Engine 3 with a lot of extra stuff developed in-house.

Looks like a game that, after a year, we will find in a bargain bin sale.

I was hoping they'd show gameplay footage by now. The CGI trailer was pretty cool though.

I bit the bullet today and pre-ordered it.

Stupidly i was going to wait and get it later but you can never have too many games :laugh:

Hopefully this game is a big hit for Arkane Studios, Dark Messiah was such an underrated game.

Bethseda did not develop this game, they are only the publisher.
