I'm pretty sure there will be fog of war, by the way; there's a smart-pause event in the options menu for when one of your characters detects a new enemy.

Sadly smart pause, extended ear, night goggles and other elements which imply to FoW, are there because FoW USED to be there, but they cut it out, because "auto-pausing was interrupting game flow every time when new enemy popped on the screen", which is a lousy excuse. It is either poor designing from their part, or just that they ran out of testing time before deadline; which comes in between lines from that thread, so they scrapped it.


They MIGHT be adding it as a patch later on, which is when I MIGHT be buying it. Too bad, I was hyped up and I was going to preorder it until I found that out. FoW is an essential feature to me. Not going to support such dumbing down with my monies.

But since they are wandering around all the time situations got unpredictable and the game itself got way to hard.

They better add back fow. Still can't decide whether I want to preorder or not but lack of gun porn and fow is pretty lame.

2 more days till massive cringefest accompanied with me crying my eyes out while trying to spell out features that need modding.

Did you pre-order already?

There's a reason I don't fall for these remakes no more myself :p

I preordered maybe half a month ago. Can't be arsed to refund.

Well, hopefully either they make a patch to reintroduce what would have made the game good or a modder does it. I'm sure I can live without the subpar preorder bonus' anyway.

I just spent way more then I should have on a new ssd anyway
 
What amazes me is that the weapon shown on the generic 'bad-ass' for their cover, the Walther P99 isn't even in the game.

I can, to an extent, understand the lack of gun porn in a more modern game. Making unique sprites for the inventory screen for fifty million guns isn't that time-consuming.

New models, textures, and probably animations for every gun out there is a little bit more difficult for a studio. Not that I'm excusing it.

Woah, last minute gear DLCs. No wonder they don't want to support modding.

Yea that seems bit douchy move, although explanation to that in their forum is, that those DLCs are various shops pre-order bonuses, not actual "buy this, we excluded it from the game to rip you off" type DLCs. Which might be true as steam and other shops promote their offers with such items.


Also, I think it's unlocked on steam now.

I though it was supposed to unlock later this day according to steam clock earlier, but it's available already. If they hurried it up that way it cuts off many last moment pre-orderers, which isn't very smart move.
 
I think the delay from the original date of the 6th was for them to get the DLCs out.

Also preorder gear is Urban with SCAR-L, while two of the DLCs come with CAR15s (night and jungle kits) and the desert kit DLC comes with the SCAR-L.

Well, that's what bitcomposer Michael claims them to be, but his explanations exclude FoW earlier were somewhat shady, so it's hard to say.

Somewhat glad I didn't preorder then. Maybe thats the reason no gun porn, so they can release a dlc a day and milk it :/

I love  how one is night specialist, like you would somehow need a specialist to play this game when fow is disabled.

Edit : Refreshed steam page and giant banner of the guy with his p99 is at the top. Silly steam, there is no preorder bonus' or discount.....so now you put that there.

I wonder how many people got it on steam even.
