    Seems really interesting.

    For me, there will be two options: GW2 and The Lost Ark - Updated

    Can't do top down Gauntlet style games anymore, D3 ruined them for me.

    Man, they failed horribly years and years ago at this title..I hope they learned their lesson. The trailer hooked me for sure, will have to look up some gameplay.

    Well dang, you beat me to it, I was planning on posting about this game once I got a bit more information. But yeah, I also plan on playing this game, even if Revelation is good.

    I beta-ed the original Dark and Light years ago! Lots of promise but they just didn't seem to have to money or crew to get things going. I loved the base concepts though. Will definitely keep an eye!

    Looks like Dark and Light will be hitting early access July 20. That means in 2 days. Guess it looks like price is going to be $29.99

    This looks right up my alley. Thanks @Averie for mentioning it.

    Will have to watch some gameplay vids and see...

    When I found out its gonna be more like ARK and not an MMORPG, I lost a little interest. Right now I'll be in a wait and see mode depending on how many other community members want to buy in.

    It appear Citadel game want to compete with DnL for customerbase as they just announced thier early access info. Other game that going early access soon is wild west online but its price point seems to be higher.

    All of these seem to be ARK/7dtd style games. Survival sandboxes with official and player run servers. Around 100 or less per server.

    I'm definitely interested in an ark/7dtd that's a fantasy setting.

    I got it. Will play sometime this weekend.

    While there are many negative reviews on Steam (mostly whining about EA related issues), if you filter through to reviews that are actually mature and thoughtful, from people who have played more than 30 minutes, there are quite a few good reviews.

    I also watched a couple streamers, and it looks pretty good. Sure, there are some issues, but it's EA. It piqued my interest enough to spend money, unlike Conan (I was interested in Conan, but leery after watching vids).

    I'm definitely interested, I'd be happy to play an Ark clone that's based in a fantasy setting honestly lol

    So I bought this game, tried to play. It literally loaded for 40 minutes. I knew beforehand people had to wait like 10 to 15 minutes, but 40? And when I got into game, it was so laggy for me, that I decided to refund it and maybe get Citadel next week... At least until D&L is better optimized. I've watched a lot of people play it, and only a handful had an issue with it.

    Almost sounds like the issue in ARK with the total conversions like primitive+. And since they haven't solved the Primitive + issue since its release, I don't have any hopes on Ark and Light fixing any time soon.

    I've had issues with ark for a long time as well, so I'd assume it's a similar problem. Hoping it will be addressed some day, as I would like to try this game.

    I still can't get primitive plus to work, it says installed on my steam account but when I try to join a server it says it's not, just not worth all the trouble lol.

    Back to talking about Dark and Light...

    They seem to be quick to patch bugs. There is a pretty bad resource leak in the game and they really need to get that fixed. Wild guess they are using a garbage collected language and with how busy the game is, the collection never gets a chance to completely run.

    Has potential, need to wait and see where they go with this one.

    Update: The devs have been putting out some optimization fixes, working on clipping, ability to spawn too many items in an area and grief others with lag and a number of other fixes.

    I still have resource issues with my setup. I have spoken with some other folks that have newer and older builds and similar problems. ASRock x68 mb, 16g ddr3 2133 ram, 4TB sata drives, evga 970gtx video.
