I was made aware of Loadout from RPS's coverage, found here: http://www.rockpaper...f-early-access/
After watching the developer stream in that article for about 45 minutes without being able to stop, I decided to get the game.
The game is currently in beta and being released 31st of January. It will be completely free to play on release, but to play now you need to buy a starter bundle (the cheapest is €9ish and you get some in game stuff for it).
It is an arena shooter, bunny-hopping, absurd weapons and characters. You build your own weapons with upgrades bought with currency that you get from playing. There are no classes, instead weapons define your playstyle.
I have played 5 matches or so and am thoroughly enjoying it. I would really like to have some DTE fun with this.
Some beginner tips: focus on upgrading one weapon at first, and keep experimenting to find something that suits you. Keep an eye what mods do to your damage.
