    It looks very cool indeed. Is it playable already? Rainbow Six in outer space with sharks on legs sounds bloody awesome. I do hope there's a co-op campaign.

    The multiplayer portion of the game is playable. Its not complete, but what they are starting with. The singleplayer/coop campaign is in development.

    They just added 8vs8 servers which is pretty nice. One of my complaints was 4vs4 was too small for some of the maps.

    I picked up the Premium edition, my son and i are both excited to see this one develop. The lighting effects are great, but the game itself is still far from really playable... ie: no jumping or crouching yet... not a lot in the area of gun selection.. I compare this alpha to say insurgency. I admit tho, I am very impressed with the lighting and weather effects. I'd check out insurg in the mean time it's much further along, but more in the lines of COD or Battlefield. IM is definitely one to watch especially with the cross platform play!

    Hey blue spider. Yes IM is very barebones right now, but still a lot of fun. The jumping & crouching are coming in the next update, so that should help a lot.

    I've had Insurgency for awhile, definitely a lot of fun as well!

    $14.99 on Steamplay. Dunno if it's worth it for what is essentially a beta product.

    Wumpus, are you affiliated with the developer?
