Pros vs Cons: The Witcher 3 Multiplayer – Part One

RGN writes, "With CD Projekt Red’s recent announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature multiplayer there is some talk about the possibility of The Witcher 3 receiving multiplayer features as well. We have seen disastrous results when some single player titles add multiplayer. We’ve also seen some across the board good implementations as well as mediocre ones. With not much to go on, gamers are struggling to gather themselves and define the pros and cons amongst each other for the title receiving multiplayer elements of any kind versus remaining a purely single player experience." (PC, PS3, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I think it could be a good idea but well see Mass Effect 3 is an RPG and had a good MP mode so

Did you just compare the RPGness of Mass Effect 3 to The Witcher?!?! You should be slapped along w/ CDPR for even thinking of adding MP to this game.

There is only one pro and one con for fans of The Witcher.

Pro- There will be no MP
Con- There will be MP

You need to have a open mind so your comment is invalid

Lol... but you right tho. The Witcher needs to stay single player only.

Dont buy it then. But i'll give it a chance. I remember laughing when I heard that Assassins Creed would have multiplayer, but then it became one of the most ambitious mp additions ever and has even won awards for it. So, if u have a problem with the devs flexing their inner creative muscle, then don't buy it. Just quit your crying.

Mass Effects was awful...they had time after the leak to waste resources on getting the ending done quicker and instead the wasted resources and money on a tacked on multiplayer which made the ending seem rushed.

I'm not sure I like the idea of such a vast speculation on something so unconfirmed, but I think more credit needs to be given for at least an attempt at a variety of on-line content and playing.

I would love to see some more adventurous game play in newer titles, and it can introduce an aspect of freshness if you've been playing single-player modes for a while.

Why can't we have purely single player games anymore?
Hitman0769  +   931d ago
I used to feel any game can get multiplayer if done correctly. I still think that, but I also never wanted to see every single player experience go multiplayer. I wonder how Final Fantasy will approach their next installments bearing this in mind.

Game longevity.

Its assumed that way with MP, gamers will continue to play their game, reducing amount of trade-ins.

In reality, shitty MP or games that had forced MP make me so angry I trade that shit in double time!

Use those resources to make the experience that much more significant you ass hats!! I would keep a glorious game on my shelf and trade in a half assed one in a heartbeat

Multiplayer would put a game like this in MMORPG territory...
PhiMattic  +   931d ago
I don't know. I really think they should stick to single player. It sounds like it would be forced if they incorporate it now. It didn't seem like they planned for it until they got positive reaction to cyberpunk having it.

I would rather the game not have multiplayer, personally. That said, I have a lot of faith in CDProjekt to deliver something actually worthwhile with it and not have it detract from the singleplayer experience itself.
PoSTedUP  +   931d ago
well said + bubble some games should be left for single player only.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   931d ago
There is no pros, it's tacked on nuff said.
Roccetarius  +   931d ago
Gonna have to go with the majority as well. There are no pros for this in story driven games.
Thepharaoh  +   931d ago
It's really more so a main story game with awesome monster hunting side quests but after about 10 walkthroughs of the game id probably give the multiplayer a shot if they decided to include.

Ach...more resources taken away from a good story.
