Does the game have anything about D&D franchise? It's an honest question because i have no clue. D&D deserve a hell of a good product imo, by pure respect if anything else.

Yes it does. I am a pnp player who was hooked to 3e then transferred to 4e. With all the criticism it felt wierd to try 4e but one person in our group was very adamant because he was old and never liked 3e to older editions.

ANyways, not veering off the topic, over time I started to understand 4e and liked it. Then I came to know this game based on FR side by side and followed it patiently for 2 years.

 

A few things I am confident is, the game is very strongly based on 4e mechanics. Although you may not dodge by the roll of dice, but the dodge's reaction time etc. will be determined by it - making it easier for rogue to didge while very tough for someone with armor and low points in mobility.

Secondly, the art/story/lore is all done by WotC and is canon unlike previous D&D games. Check D&D digital on youtube - enough said. Even color of eyes, height of a monster are heavily debated.

Lastly, don't listen to what others or me is saying. Check out the info yourself. Its all there. Ask specific questions when in doubt and remember - haters and fans of anything and everything ould always cloud the real facts. You gotta reach beyond that foggy area and grab the real facts.

 

EDIT:

Oh! And if in doubt about lore, check my stickyed thread on official forums "Lore Info" in Art & fiction sub-section. It answers n00bish questions only like why are tieflings, genasi, dragonborn not rare - or what spellplague did to various stuff - but if you have advanced questions, you can always ask there.

60 minutes of gameplay:

Looks terrible, more like a lobby game with many, many solo instances.

The examples of gameplay I have seen are disheartening. Why is it that every MMO game with D&D on it must be super action based to the detriment of player RP elements?

This D&D! If any game should have a world to live in it should be a D&D game that accomplishes this. I like action combat, but this game looks like a console game.

I can't see anything just hear voices. But the fact it is 50% instanced and 50% open world should be well known by now.

There are vast open world areas, and vast instances also.

That is what D&D is - how else you can carry on a story seperately for different adventurers at the same time?

If it is about looks, graphics, it is as much as a computer can support.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

Phantasy Star Online 2 is going to be a lobby game with many, many (solo) instances, but it is a terrific game.

Also, Guild Wars was a lobby game with many, many (solo) instances.

Do you see what I am getting at?

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

Forgive my ignorance of terminology, but what is a lobby game?

Does it mean it is only in rooms and no fighting outside rooms? - That is not true as many videos clearly show combat in non-instanced and outside zones.

Does it mean a game which already has fans rooting for it? - Being a FR game, and a D&D that is a given.

How is that immersive? A license like Dungeons and Dragons really needs a living and breathing open world with - like ignore_me already said - RP elements, many different classes and races, choices...

It is a big breathing world.

 

One playthrough of starting instance not whole of the game make.

 

OTHERWISE all RPGs would be kill rats in the basement :p
