    Maybe I just missed it, and I know they are at PAX now, but I say this video from Gamescon that I thought was interesting:

    Akhrin, Ekhael, Celsus and 2 others like this.

    It's a bit disingenuous to call this video "high level" gameplay - it's merely the ending of the gameplay showcased at gamescom/PAX (level 6) and is a solo-able Boss. (apparently there was a timer on how long you could play so not many people would have got this far).

    The brief glimpse at the end is a Level 6-12 area called Algaroth (not on the show floor) but we barely see more than a few tree and structures.

    Yes, after seeing it and then seeing other videos later, I am not sure why they called it high level. I was a little bummed after seeing other videos that had similar content.

    lol Media hype and spin are not the sole possession of MSNBC, folks. Game reviewers are often just as guilty as other journalists of talking big and walking small. Personally, I chuckled at the "high-level" title and then forgot about it. The video was still interesting and informative.

    Unfortunately, honesty in journalism has never, ever been a realistic expectation. Every journalist in every organization is more than happy to exaggerate a bit (or even make up a few facts along the way!) if they think it will help lift their article above the fray. Game reporters, included.

    Exactly this.

    This was an instance (or second area) after the initial zone you were placed in during the demo. You were like level 6 when you were here and you had to fight your way through a camp, defeat a giant robot at the end, then escape to safety on ships.

    It was a really fun ending to the demo and made you be like "GIVE MORE!!!!" when you finished it.
