I'm not getting excited nor let myself get put down when things don't happen as I expected. Whatever happens, happens and I will make the best of that situation.
mmmmm.... I disagree. Nowhere do they indicate there will be no rails. So it could be that it is multiplayer, heroic style, but still on rails.
Seriously.... until they ACTUALLY SAY it's not on rails, it would be foolish to assume no rails. You are just setting yourself up for disappointment IMO.
P.S. It won't be on rails. They can't do that to us after making a HUGE deal of this "completely changes the pixel of the space content we have now"
