Picked this up with the 50% off Steam Sale and was pleasantly surprised.  It's a Square Enix gmae that will eventually be F2P, but the packs are 50% off right now and give 100% cash value in currency plus other bonuses as well as access to closed beta.

It's a third person shooter with humans vs vampires set in the Legacy of Kain universe. Overall feel is very good so far, responsive and decent hit detection.  Playing the first vampire class gives a feel similar to playing as an alien in Aliens vs Predator imo.  They can climb up walls and pounce long distances.  Looks like they have avoided all P2W aspects completely thankfully.  Cash just buys things more quickly and skins, and you earn money at a fair rate anyway.  You also get some skins and items at various levelling milestones.  You can pay to unlock classes early, but you also get a class token every 5 levels so you get them eventually for free.

Overall I'm very glad I too the chance and can recommend to anyone that enjoys a faster paced shooter with a unique feel.  There is quite a bit of customization for each class with more on the way.

Just be careful, if you buy one pack or get a free beta invite, Steam gets confused on the packs and you can't upgrade later.  I made that mistake. frown  bought the cheap pack when it was 75% off then realized how good the game was and wanted the pack with more stuff and now it's sitting in my inventory with me unable to open it since it's flagged as the game and not DLC.  Thankfully I've been told Steam will fix this eventually, just waiting on my ticket. 

tldr:  game good, buy it, buy the $50 pack for $25 if you're interested, because you can't upgrade later through steam with discount.  (you can upgrade through them, but no discount)

Here's some gameplay footage of me fumbling about

I made lots of mistakes, but you can see how it plays overall.  I have shadows turned off, but otherwise am on pretty high settings.

I've got a couple beta keys if someone wants to try it (keep in mind that the free key can keep you from putting a paid steam pack on without support help)

Also Greenman is currently selling the $20 pack for $5, this includes access and $20 of money in-game along with some other benefits.

What was the purpose of the NPC grunts you were killing during that little bit I watched?  Do you level up within the match or something?

What, seriously? Were they afk? I swear it looked like they were just ineffectually standing there letting you wail on them.
