So, I just tried the demo and...just wow, the animations are fluid, you can customize so many things of your character, while the demo was really short, I played the Gryphon fight over twenty times , it's just fun!
I been reading around, it's basically a open world game, and you can actually continue playing after you beat the game! So that's a HUGE plus for me. You command "pawns" and they are your helpers during the game, 3 simple commands, "Help, Go, and come", You don't need anymore commands, I hardly used them but the AI is REALLY good, you have 3 pawns with you, and one of them is your main pawn, who you are allowed to customize as much as the main guy, the main pawn will of course be with you thought the game.
You can grapple onto enemies, I managed to grab on the Gryphon and hop on it's back, managed to pull a few light attacks on it!
The carry weight of the main character actually depends on the weight and size that you chose during character customization, I think it can improve as you level up, but don't quote me on that.
The only thing that I hate about it, is the fact that the demo is REALLY short, you can customize your main character and main pawn, do part of the prologue quest, and do a random side quest.
Npc's have a 24 hour schedule, of course it gets really dangerous at night but you can only find certain items during the night.
They went in a old style rpg for the inventory, it almost looks exactly the Oblivion's.
I don't know, it just feels like they gotten ideas from other games, being a capcom game it feels like Monster Hunter, with a hint of Dark Souls, mixed in with Skyrim, and a tad of Dragon age.
From what I noticed in the demo, the combat is not that hard, but it's really smooth, the bow is just...perfect
I'm still reading up, and I keep getting more and more exited , I don't always buy first day, but I think this game deserves it!
Also romances are confirmed , as well as Same sex romances.
