For certain gamers, this is going to be the best game they ever play, or the game they've been waiting since the 1980's to play.

* At the same time, there is NO WAY this game is going to live up to the hype.

It's passed the Realism-Hype Barrier, where in no matter how good a game is, it will never be as good as we imagined it to be.

It still looks like a really good game though and it is beautiful.

Except this isn't a "traditionally" developed game. If it were, I might agree.

By the time its actually "released" many thousands will have already been playing it. So by that time anyone who hasn't will (should) know what they are "realistically" buying. Hype needs expectations that heightened by mystery and there won't be that much mystery here.

Bubble up for 'Well Said', couldn't agree with you more, this game is truly gorgeous, and LOVE your avatar photo.

so when's this coming retail?

From what I know, it won't. The only physical editions are for backers.

The current expectations are 2016 for the 'full game', so that's both the Squadron 42 single-player episodes as well as the 'persistent universe' together.

The first of the Squadron 42 eps is expected early 2015, and the alpha and beta of the PU to occur after Squadron 42, although we don't know how far after - probably nearer the end of 2015 than the beginning though.

This is based off of select quotes here and there as discussed on the RSI forums.

@Abriael I think he/she? means when will it be available for purchase outside of the crowd funding program they have going on now, or what is the release date. Same question just asked differently I think.

edit: Was supposed to be a reply above and I don't know how this got down here. lol But this game look beautiful. The finished product is going to be crazy.

I'm actually not 100% sure, as they didn't give any firm dates.
