Restarted the game with a new save so can only comment on early game stuff. It seems a lot better at guiding you earlier with a steady stream of missions and goals to keep you invested. The game looks better than it did, still not a jaw dropper, but it definitely feels a lot less muddier in the texture department and the lighting seems way better, inventory management seems better and there appears to be a lot more to do, at least from what I’ve seen so far.
If you’re going knowing you’ll mostly be wandering and collecting resources and that doesn’t sound off putting then I say go for it. For £10 you can net yourself a nifty lil podcast game. It seems more refined than it was at launch.
