White Knight Chronicles server to shut down June 18th

Online functionality will be terminated (PS3, White Knight Chronicles)

I had a lot of fun with the game, and it would have been even more fun had we received all the DLC quests Japan did. Sadly, D3P's handling of the game was just piss poor. I just hope they took something out of this experience.

I will still buy WKC3 in a heartbeat if it ever comes out on the PS4.

I wish it were possible for the server to be transferred and combined with the japanese one. Then we'd get the update as well as a new, expanded community.

A friend messaged me about this earlier today. This really sucks, I was still trying to get my younger brother into it.

Astraea, lvl 80, GR 26, SS/LS user. Love this game and meeting ppl and questing online.

If Level-5 makes another, Astraea will be there to help save the world again.

Until then, Verto!

North American servers are being shut down, but I haven't seen any mention of Japan's servers being shut down. Preferential treatment yet again?

The servers are different that's why we didnt get the Avatar's story. We dont get the fight the evil goddess that's supposedly made the 5 Knights and gave powers to Madoras.

They screwed up on the patch because NA servers were down or something. I'm guessing during the PSN hack?

Are there any online-only trophy for this game? I still haven't finished 1, darn it!!
Minato-Namikaze  +   866d ago
techinicaly all trophies can be had offline. But some off the golds are really hard to do offline. like beating madoras. (i'm not including hacks in the discussion)

WKCs1 is my only platinum trophy, I better hop back on and grab the plat for part 2 before it's too late, though I think all I really have left is the binding of like 800 items -_- which can be done offline anyway.

Shame as it's fun online but japan got all the dlc so i stopped playing. lvl 30 bow user. sfc.
Lucreto  +   866d ago
This game is still on my backlog list.

Ah well it will make owning the platinum a badge of honour.

I am not willing to spend up to 600 hours grinding for it.

game never received thr respect it was do.
had a great single player campaign and when you add on the online questing with friends it made the game really shine.
took jrpg's to a whole new level of fun.

Funny, I JUST quit the game a few days ago. Was a good game but the community was just not the same as the early days and the game just lost it's appeal to me. Hopefully if White Knight 3 comes out on PS3/PS4, it will have better updating support, but then again, a lot of JP based online games NEVER get updates like it's Japanese counter parts do, nor do they every have the fanbase to warrant updating the servers. But we'll see what happens...

On another note, I'm surprise Sony hasn't choose to shut down MAG, since it's impossible to get Domination going on unless the JP players are on early in the morning. Other than that, it's Sabo all day usually.

Shutting down a game that requires a connection to work is far different than shutting down the online potion of a RPG. There would be a lot of people who just bought MAG who wouldn't be very happy about that.
soljah  +   866d ago
sony needs to rotate on mag maps. should be dom and 1 more ea day and rotate them thru out the week. not enough players for all the different play options

I enjoyed the series. It was not as charming as other JRPGs but it has its moments. Not getting that Avatar story DLC was a bummer though. I was looking forward to that one.
Skate-AK  +   866d ago
Wow I was gonna buy it too.
ALLWRONG  +   866d ago
This is where P2P has the advantage.
Hicken  +   866d ago
That's all you came to say? Really?
CanadianTurtle  +   865d ago
Big deal...I don't think anyone is begging for this to be still up
