And yet even without it, the game was still one of the highlights of the event, a testament to how well it seems like this sequel is coming along.
Ironically, some of the new information they revealed about the game might actually upset fans of the first one. For starters, the planet is no longer a Hoth-like frozen world. The snow has melted (as was foretold by the original game's ending), so you now find yourself in jungles, forests, and at least one area that looks like a Louisiana swamp. Because of this, the areas we were shown weren't bleak plains but lush greeneries with plenty of trees to hide behind, which changes the game's vibe considerably."
