The avowed deep dive was really cool. Showed a lot of combat, leveling, dialog, discussed character creation, and more.

I think they’ve done some good work improving the combat in particular.

I don’t love the facial animations as they appear out of sync with the voice acting but they might still have time to improve that and it isn’t a dealbreaker for me.
