Having already tried and tested Leves, the battle system etc. I decided I would save pointlessly hitting the cap for a 3rd time and go explore instead.
All I can say is...Wow.
Now **** knows what these zones were called, but they were quite jaw-dropping. All the zones spread so far and I don't think I've ever felt such a huge inspiration to explore a game like this before. You look at the map and you think, Whoa - the next zone is miles away, and yet the thought of what that zone could be just drags in you in so badly.
I'll admit for obvious reasons I wasn't quite sure if I should pre-order the game, but I am sold. Sold. Sold. Sold.
Anyways, heres some screenshots, I will update with some more as I manage to head to more zones. Obviously feel free to add your own.
