I hope that doesn't mean dumbed down for consoles as usual...

I think it makes sense for a game with blunderbusses and cannons. Just point in the enemy's general direction and hope for the best.

I'm hoping for cannon battles like something out of the PotC movies. Lots of explosions and debris flying about.

Correct. The combat isn't that deep. It's an FPS, but not like in fast twitch shooter sense. The crew I play with is mostly on Xbox One except myself and one other. Haven't noticed any clear advantages either way.

More like dumbed down for PC. Controllers usually do not stand a chance vs KB+M in crossplay.

Bs I downloaded the overwatch free to play last weekend on Pc which was the 1st time I played it on pc and download a controller support app. I was bussing ASS against the keyboard and mouse clickers.. Lolol gold medals across the board!!

Rare said over all there is a 3-4% difference between controller and K+M and when cross play actually started without notification from RARE, the players didn't even know pc players were playing against Xbox players and vice versa!!!!

Nobody at all picked up on it after hours of play together!!!

Hopefully this game gets a good playerbase, because it'll die pretty quick without it.

I see it being ‘dead’ within 6 months.

That's good to hear, PC users usually have the advantage
