This is also available for pre-order on Steam now. I want to get this because the world looks detailed and interesting, but $60 for a 12-24 hour game gives me pause. I guess people who play shooters are used to that sort of thing, but I got sick of shooters many years ago.

I'll probably wait a while….or maybe I won't. Not sure yet.
