1:40 PM PDT – Turns out that’s how they’re separating teams, by world-wide security organisations.
1:38 PM PDT – Radio controlled turret, it does look really pretty. Really good use of shadow, must be new lighting tech. “Global Warfighters” was name dropped, I wonder what that is.
1:35 PM PDT – Actually, it does look a lot more entertaining that the previous MOH… and then they show a slow-mo-breach.

1:08 PM PDT – They’re showing a sequence with a massive drill, no real necromorphs yet. Though it REALLY looks like a prettier Lost Planet.
