The game is incredibly fun to play. Anyone can jump in and get started with little to no training. On a PC you’re playing a standard CS:GO set up: point with mouse, click to shoot with four keys to get you moving around. Console is even easier. Whether you’re on an XBox or PlayStation, controls are easy as.

The design is glorious, the characters are so thought out with incredible back stories that immerse you into a world of fun and pure entertainment. It is going to appeal to any level of gamer because of the ease of play and the intricacies of each character and their role in game. It’s a story and an adventure more so than an online first personal shooter. I’ve waxed lyrical enough. Let me stop.

I can prove it is easy for even a complete N00b to play. I live streamed myself at the event playing for the first time on PC. You can watch it on my YouTube Channel (click here to open the video in another browser for your enjoyment later – my first ever live stream playing the game for the first time. Be gentle). My friend Chantelle & I played last night and she got in to it super fast (there’s a video coming soon). I’m writing this on minimal sleep because playing has been so much fun.
