Helios is an open world Action RPG, with a action based combat system. Therefore the player is forced to aim in order to hit a monster rather then bashing buttons. But fighting is not the only thing that you can do, growing your own vegetables is an ease. Those vegetables can then be cooked into a tasty stew and consumed for more health. Also you have the ability to gather you're own ore's and craft these into the most amaizing weapons there are. Monsters won't drop any weapons, armor or gold. Instead they will drop more plausible items like fur, bones, teeth, etc. These can then be used for crafting your items.
The new fully dynamic day/night cycle in Helios. When it becomes night the fire's and lights will automatically go on. During the night you won't be able to get into the city, it will be locked down at 10. Of course you can always sleep in the bandits village if you didn't cross them!
The video recording caused some lagg, but the day/night cycle runs super smooth ingame.
