Player Quotes

"Just based on what I've played in the Colorado map, this game has launched in much rougher shape than Snowrunner."

"You couldn't be bothered to right a few new loading screen comments? They're just recycled from Snowrunner."

"A lot of the assets and code seem to be recycled from Snowrunner but somehow made worse."

"The first campaign has many problems that many other people have mentioned so I won't go over them here, but since it basically serves as an extended tutorial, soft locks and miscues should not exist in the first real content the player interacts with."

"Why are discovered fords and climbs marked with a question mark? I discovered, them I know what they are and if I mouse over them they say \"ford\" or \"climb\"."

"The main HQ claims to be a deployment area, but whenever I start a new expedition, the only deployment choice I have is the Eastern Outpost which is often across the map from where I want to go."

"Why does recovery simply drop you off outside the garage? If I'm on a free roam I have to actually go to the escape menu and select \"Back to Headquarters\" to enter the building I'm parked in front of."
