    My interest in this game is gaining momentum but I need more feedback from the TOG community as to how good it is.

    So it doesn't have a monthly sub just buy and play?

    Further expansions will be released?

    Online Only?

    Can't play solo?

    No cross platform capability? (PC > ONE > PS4)

    No cross generation capability? (PS3 > PS4)

    Buy and play no sub but you will need a Xbox Gold or Playstation + sub account in order to take part in the strikes, raids, and pvp.

    Further expansions will be released?
    2 DLCs are already planned to roll out in the coming months of this year once the game launches. Like most console games there is a season pass to prepurchase them.

    Online Only?
    Yes you will be online the entire time your in the game.

    Can't play solo?
    You can solo play as the story missions and open world are integrated. So if your buy yourself you start in the open world of the zone your mission is in and you can run into players. Once you enter the restricted zone if your by yourself then that it turns into a single player experience. However if you form a party and enter your story missions restricted zone only the party will enter with no outside players joining your instance.

    No cross platform capability? (PC > ONE > PS4)
    Confirmed for no cross platform

    No cross generation capability? (PS3 > PS4)
    Confirmed for no cross platform however you can transfer your progress within the generation.

    Hope this help.

    Any class can use any weapon they want. The skill trees don't really have anything that push classes towards certain weapon types. I almost exclusively used scout rifles and sniper rifles on all characters during beta as I found they were most effective for me.

    Hunter has a bonus increasing reload speed after getting precision kills which is good if you use rifles but it still works with all other weapons.

    Titan has a special melee attack after sprinting and gains a shield after sprinting which encourages charging towards the enemy and maybe using close range weapons like shotguns.

    Other than those there's nothing that forces you into a specific playstyle or weapons.

    Both systems have this but you can only upgrade PS3 to PS4 or 360 to Xbox one, not across brands and it only applies to digitally purchased copies.
