Alpha test access is kinda expensive, but there will be open beta i.e. free tests "this summer", requiring only registration on the site. Best quick intro is IMO it's IGN Wiki, and this is an Imgur album with hundreds of images and screenshots.
"The Big World" tests started - basically, it's a step from earlier MOBA-like small scale testing towards bigger MMO servers with crafting, gathering, mining etc. - tho building, territory control and character customization/genders are not in tests yet. Here's preview by TheLazyPeon:
Though I'm having trouble seeing the videos and more than the first five or so pictures (So I use add blockers, yeah yeah) it does look interesting. Graphics about that of WoW or the first torchlight (easy on my graphics card yet still looking good) yet still able to make a nice-looking character.
How is the camera & movement? Click-to-move with right click to rotate camera (hopefully)?
Grind automation (Like Jade Dynasty's in-game "esper" device or auto-hunt in Kabod)?
Free to play?
edit: got one of the videos to load. That wall being broken up into blocks ... neat, though looks confusing for melee combat, though. The graphics are more detailed than I thought. Impressive.
Graphics are in pre-alpha testing, so lots of glitches/bugs to fix, things like lightning/textures/animations/effects... will be improved etc. - but it will stay cartoony, of course. Basically, people like it or not.
Camera & movement is standard MMO, with action/twitch combat i.e. manual aiming (say, TERA) and model is buy to play, with optional sub - say, like ESO.
Game feeling in general - I didn't mention EVE Online just like that, Crowfall is based on PvP/building/crafting with progression system similar to EVE (offline leveling) and even the death mechanics will be copied from EVE, i.e. body is like ship, expendable as "explained" in this comic they made - imgur.com/a/jbuKL
Other influences are Star Wars Galaxies for crafting & economy & some social aspects and strategy games such as Civilization, I mean - they even played Risk (!) in the Kickstarter video:
