I'm looking forward to trying some too. I like that it will be available in 11 x14 inch sheets, because 12 x 16 is more common in the UK and Europe.
There will be smaller and larger sizes of course. 8)

Not sure I understand...what is different about it?

The emulsion is coated on a heavy paper base of 300 grams per square meter which has a different texture to Ilford's matt and semi-matt surfaces.
I want to try something different for a change than the usual glossy FB papers, even if it's just the one box to see if I like it. I am also planning a photographic project for myself.

I used to use Dupont papers, which had a very nice matte finish that was far nicer than anyone else's.
