I heard that it's going to be an open-world RPG where you run around a world the size of a small city and where half the area consists of a single environment copied and pasted. There were hundreds of NP Cs
the last time someone bothered to count, but they're all voiced by 10 people. You have the choice of being a fighter, mage, thief, or a combination of the 3. The fighter has blades, blunt weapons and bare hands, the mage has fire, frost, shock and "damage health" magic, as well as status buffs and status damaging spells, and the thief can open lockpicks and sneak by NP Cs
. There will be hundreds of books and useless decorations, but if you pick one up when someone is watching the local guards will immediately know who you are, where you are and what you stole. The story will be epic in scale, if a smidge generic, with touches of comedy in the sidequests. Missions will consist of theft, escorts, murder, and/or fighting your way through caves filled with the undead. If your character gets hurt or diseased, he/she can quaff potions, heal with spells, or pray to the gods.
The reviews will be positive, citing the scope of the world and number of things to do, but the game will be criticized for being buggy and rushed.
