    Been looking forward to this ever since the reveal trailer… Hope it has some type of perma-death to make it even scarier!

    Yep, going to buy this as well. Don’t even care that I’ll probably never complete it.

    Is this sandbox survival or story driven? Either way it’s looking good so far.

    The world
    Enter a living, breathing forest with changing weather patterns, plants that grow and die. Tides that roll in and out with the day/night cycle. Below ground explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes.

    Complete player freedom
    Chop down trees to build a camp, or start a fire to keep warm. Scavenge food to keep yourself from starving. Find and plant seeds to grow food.

    Build a small shelter or a large ocean side fortress. decorate your home with found items. Lay traps and defenses to keep a safe perimeter.

    Gameplay
    Explore and build during the day. Defend your base at night. Craft weapons and tools.Bunker down during the evening or bring the fight directly to the enemy.

    Fight or Hide
    Use stealth to evade enemies, or engage them directly with crude weapons built from sticks and stones.

    A new type of open world, survival horror experience
    Defend yourself against a clan of genetic mutant enemies that have beliefs, families, morals and that appear almost human.

    Full VR experience
    Support for the Oculus Rift VR headset for the most immersive experience possible.

    A lot of things point towards singeplayer… and it sounds awesome!

    Does this game only play with Rift? Seems silly to lock yourself out of a market because you made a game for a niche device not to mention someone like me who won’t be touching one in the near future.

    I like the concept of the game of crafting and preparing during the day and defending at night.

    Looks amazing but I really REALLY hope it goes beyond Rust / DayZ / 7 Days to Die / Trendy SURVIVAL First Person Title.

    As long as it’s single player, I’m in.

    @7: “Does this game only play with Rift?” Of course not.

    I wasn’t sure as every time the game is mentioned so is Rift.
