Looks like dark messiah of might and magic,but there were also melee fights.

In KoAR playing a mage had virtually no downsides, by level 25-30 you were a badass; a walking death machine. The combat was awesome.

I kinda hate the premise/narrator.  I feel like the people who made this sat around all day talking about how bad ass their mages are. Like, my mage could take your mage!  My mage could beat Super Saiyan Goku! You know what would be awesome? If we made a game about MAGES! Not those pansy mana bar mages!  But crazy god like mages!  Did 
I tell you Im totally into mages!?

Now make the other classes badass and you'll have the most badass, and probably the best, action RPG ever made

I am getting a Hexen/Heretic vibe from this.

Good idea, I don't normally play mages in RPGs because I like to play tanks but this could work. I like the idea of crafting spells too.

I'm not normally a fan of first person perspective but I guess Skyrim was OK so it could deal with it.

I'm not a PC gamer but this looks pretty good nonetheless.

@hammoud  potentially yes, but let's not forget that Bioware made the mage class very combat-oriented in Dragon Age 2 despite how the story in that one was unmentionable lol
