Anyone else have it for PC and cannot connect to the servers? And yes, exploring and doing the towers is a great thing to do first. I did all I could, but I need to go further into the story I think before I can do the rest.
Think of it as a scaled down version of Skyrim with guns. I love this game. It looks fantastic, for starters, and it has a great story line. There are quite a bit of things to do. I haven't finished yet, but so far it's one of favorite games. Best thing to do to start is work on your Tatau (you'll learn what that is as you play) and unlock the radio towers to get better weapons. Also I find that using silenced weapons and sneaking around when you first start is better. Taking on enemies head on can be a bit tough until you unlock new skills and weapons.
