It's PvP but everything about the trailer and vidoc points to character customization being the focus.

Right. Because they've totally nailed that in Destiny. How many different currencies will I have to collect to use the skin I've already unlocked?

hashtag butthurt bout it.

Things make more sense when you recognize this important fact: the developers of a game like Destiny *hate* you. That the reward system is convoluted and frustrating isn't a regrettable necessity, it's the point. You frustrate them by stubbornly trying to avoid giving them your money and time, so they in turn force you to endure a frustrating reward system. Neo-Marathon will be worse, count on it.

Precisely why I now want to play games that love you. That are thrilled you picked it and gave your money and time, and which seek to make every second you choose to spend with it as meaningful and engaging as possible. And that let you walk away and end the experience on a high note when you’ve explored it as much as you want.
