This has been out on PC for a while now but it came out on Xbox One yesterday free on Game Pass. It's a four-player online co-op action RPG, kinda like a first-person Diablo mixed with Left 4 Dead set in the Warhammer universe during the End Times that has you fighting against hordes of Chaos and Skaven.





Anyone else playing?

You should all play this. Its fantastic! I know some people will disregard it as a L4D rip off, and it is a L4D rip off, but thats ignoring the fact that its better than both L4D 1 & 2 (IMO). It has more varied bosses, a load of crazy maps, varied classes for every character, Melee combat is strawberry floating BRUTAL, the loot system is enjoyable with no micro transactions, and the Characters are absolutely effing brilliant. I love the world lore, the banter between the team, the voice actors are all excellent and really nail their roles.

The melee combat is awesome. Seems really simple at first, but some nice hidden depth. The thud when you hit a shield or amour and then the smooshing flesh cutting noise when you hit an unguarded bit is so satisfying. Or just keep bringing the hammer down on their heads like they were watermelons.

Input lag is still as bad as it was in the beta, but smashing enemies with the massive hammers does feel great.

Put a couple of hours into it last night. Really enjoyed it, easy to jump into a quick match and hit some rats, get some loot. Advisable to get a few characters leveled up a bit as you won't always be able to use your 1st choice character.

It's only a small company making this and they're doing the Xbox version first and then the PS4 version soon after.
It's not an exclusivity deal as far as I know just that they want to make sure both versions are as good as they can be so need time to concentrate on one at a time.

Like Overwatch, you can only have type of character per squad so for example if you want to play as the dwarf sometimes he'll be taken already so you have to choose someone else.

You can just search for another game if that happens at least.

Fair enough, I swear they showed multiples of the same class in the preview footage, could well be wrong though.
