    I feel like this game is being overlooked, especially on PC. And its a shame, because its a great game (if you like cover based tps). Devs also made full cross play between PC and XBO, so you can play not only co-op, but also versus now. There is also the iconic horde mode, so if you like zombies in cod or ME multi, this is the mode for you.



    Maybe people are scared, that its W10 game, but this game has one of the best graphics setting available on PC. Everything is perfectly explained with performance impact and you have detailed benchmark about each PC component separately.



    If you have at least slight interest in these type of games, I urge you to try the trial mentioned in the article.

      The free trial is certainly an incentive to try the game for those that haven’t. Plus the free DLC, it’s a very good offer that Xbox One owners should not overlook.
