This looks like it has potential. Love the visual style and overall vibe, hopefully it has gameplay to match! It’s about time the MS platform gets some exclusives that are worth talking about!

I've had my eye on this for a while and I think it looks great, but the devs have said that the main story alone is around 15-20 hours and, to me, that's too long for this type of game and I think I'll get bored long before the end. Obviously I'll play it because it's on Game Pass, but I'm not sure I'll finish it.

It looks lovely, but the gameplay in that video - just backing off around a circular room while chipping away at a health bar - doesn't look great.

Oh, it’s a twin stick shooter then? Looks pretty though.

Its an RPG in the Diablo mould. With twin stick shooting and abilities. Enemies are tactical and theres a light cover system. Heres a few articles. Its now my most wanted game.

I've never played Diablo, but isn't it like Minecraft Dungeons? I had a great time blasting through that with my youngest lad.

Minecraft Dungeons is a very light version of the Diablo formula. It's designed for very young kids and it's great fun but Diablo is a very deep RPG looter. 

 

This game looks to have loads of depth on the RPG side too. That gameplay further up looks to be pretty early in the game and so you're underpowered with your pea shooter doing chip damage. The other footage I've seen shows a large armoury of things that make other things explode.

Wasn’t quite sure of the genre this was falling into. I assumed it was a coop shooter but looking at the trailer above it looks more like something in the style of Diablo.

At first appearance it looks like a twin stick shooter but when you read about it there's loot, abilities (spells) and different enemy weaknesses, so for all intents and purposes it's Diablo.
