there's nothing in there that says theres health regen. Or confirming it in anyway. The title of this thread, and video are sensationalistic.
Ofcourse, there could be since little is known about the gameplay systems... but the person doing the video just grasps at straws hanging onto one word that isn't health regen.
The original article makes it clearer.
"I can’t go into too many details right now, but in terms of drawing from first person and third person shooting mechanics there is this covering system. It’s not like you’re covering yourself from a shower bullets, but there are some natural environments where you can recover your HP and then go back into battle. There are some other weapon related aspects that I will be able to reveal later on."
Anyway this isn't necessarily a bad thing.
But it doesn't seem very "RPG-like" don't you think? I kinda wished they were to go back to the traditional turn base style of play.
IMO it's always lazy design when you use non-spell based, or item based (like dark souls) regenerating health.
However, Xenoblade and Deus Ex HR both used it last gen like someone, and were some of the most highly rated RPG's (and imo best) so it's not the end all be all. But I didn't like that aspect about either game either.
