A new preview of the Diablo-meets-post-apocalypse game Restricted Area is up on IGN.

Character development plays a large role in this game. Each time you destroy an enemy or complete a mission, you'll gain experience points. Gain enough of these and you'll increase your character's level and be given the option to spend points to raise their basic abilities and skills. Abilities enhance your overall performance and thresholds; skills grant bonuses to certain actions. For instance, if you want to do more damage in ranged combat, you'll want to raise the strength ability; if you want to do more damage with the shotgun, you'll want to buy the shotgun skill. There's a separate pool of upgrade points for both abilities and skills, so you can really tailor your character to the way you're playing.

So you can get better at using a weapon by putting skill points into said weapon's skill tree. I don't know if that's a sign that character development plays a large role in the game, or just, "well, duh".
