I have joined the blue fraction (Europe). The first impression is a very good one. The principle of playing is quite simular with incubation.
Some object only blocking the way but not the fireline
Defence mode takes action points from the next turn if the soldier fires during enemy turn
No cover behind other soldiers (but atleast you can fire to)
In sum a very motivation game. Especially due to the wourld map where you can capture some areas from the other fraction. To capture this areas you can play PvE (Aliens) or PvP. Havn´t try PvP but it should be 80-90% like playing Incubation.
So guys, join and we can have a PvP if you want.
