Okay now that I had a chance to actually play here are my thoughts.
Honestly nothing is good about the engine. Everything is pretty meh, the teaser was hardly worth the effort at all.
I'm still frustrated that none of my characters are up to date with their live counter part being stuck in the past since the first beta.
While the floaty feeling since the last action district test is better but yet everything feels more clunky. "the feeling" isn't very good on the action districts. And the low fps is probably apart of that. I noticed when getting close to some walls will cause the dynamic shadows on my character to vanish. There were also walls where my crosshair turned red due to the enemy on the other side.
Another problem I ran into is I couldn't equip the Halloween bra I could buy it but can't equip it.
Next issue and it might be because I would switch between Min and Max graphics but cars that weren't loaded into the district with/equiped before hand are super chrome
I also watched one of the opps I fought twitch all over the place, I am unsure if this is because of the server, the person or what. And I don't mean he was rubber banding but while they were running down the sidewalk would spas.
In it's current state and the amount of time it's taking to finish this engine I expect it to come out early 2022, unless some miracle appears in the performance department.
Characters look hideous, and trying to do actual customization is extremely buggy and generally unpleasing to use, like I said above I got tired of waiting for another character merge so I went full ham on trying to recreate my character's current look from live. Next beta can we get another character migration? Cause i'm also missing things I paid for on live.
I guess as a summary, the beta leaves much to be desired.
But whether or not people say it, we all appreciate you guys trying to breathe new life into this gem.
