With some luck we got our hands on Ubisofts Lost: Via Domus, released today in the US and on friday in Europe. Inside you will find a couple of videos showing the first steps in the game, showing some characters and the game's story.
You will in the videos see the main character suffering from amnesia. I've only taken the first steps in the game and shouldn't say too much about the game yet, but the graphics are at least pretty good and the controls solid. As many people previously have pointed out, the characters can both look and sound a little bit different from the TV show.
The controls can sometimes be a little bit unresponsive, mostly reminding me of Shenmue 2 - really slow walking, run on triggers, and taking out really big turns when you turn while running. There is of course a chance that you can get used to it, but it can be irritating getting stuck on objects while running here as much as it was in Shenmue.
The second video below will show the Flashback feature in the game, while the third one show the characters in the game and a puzzle. These videos are unfortunately not in HD resolution, sorry about that.

less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)
Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (2 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
