The PS4 reveal trailer came out on June 2015 , ‘Welcome to Sapienza’ on Oct, 2015. Several announcements, interviews, obviously since the game was going to be released. Last level was released on 31st October, all new stuff is re skinned. I’m not berating or saying IO did nothing, but when it comes to gameplay the game severely lacks. Stealth or crouching is not that great when NPCs cant hear you running or walking, features which were present in previous games, even in the alpha version are not there, no human shield, no dual wielding, no genuine variety of weapons or weapon mods.
I have always supported IO and always will and i trust that these 2 years of silence hopefully mean really awesome gameplay improvements. Try the cover system, the combat, you KNOW its lacking the oomph, sound effects for weapons, genuine feel of weight when you snipe someone and you can see the carnage, right now the body just flops around and ALL the guards know where you are irrespective of the distance or visibility.
But these ‘10 different types of SUPER DUPER STEEL PLATINUM DIAMOND EDITIONS’ are not good. No need to tell ya this but, no NEW stuff is announced for a VERY long time.
