On the teaser website, several assets from the title seem to have been used. The above image depicts Airplane (edited), if one assumes the door design to still be isolated to one map, and is the first real look at the upcoming title.Â
An Alpha Test will be taking place 'very soon'. Users were instructed to pay attention to the teaser website for further details. More updates as further information becomes available.
