"Much criticism has been heaped on the upcoming The Order 1886 which is under development at Ready At Dawn. To make matters worse the game got recently delayed till 2015 which is not necessarily a bad thing."
This game just screams for Co-Op like the original gears of war had. It could be that big a hit. I hope they put co-op in it now that they've been given more time. On the flip side, if they're going no co-op I hope it's going to have RPG elements and make it a bit mass effect. There's already a squad of characters. Imagine a loyalty system like ME2 had! There's just so much potential with this game I just hope they don't focus too much on the graphics.
I think just like with every other new IP on the PlayStation, Sony are not going to take the risk of MP. They did the same with Uncharted and only added multiplayer after the original became a hit. But yes, I agree with you. This game is tailor made for co-cop.
What risk do you associate with co-op play?
@Volkama They are a small team. Normally for MP you need a big team.
Got ya. I'm not sure you need a particularly big team for co-op as a campaign option, specially not if it's online play (so not the challenge of getting it running splitscreen) but it would definitely increase the workload a bit and perhaps require pulling in some new expertise. The game does look ripe for it though.
See I see mp and coop as two separate beast. So while it's great it doesn't have mp it should have had, at least, co-op.
I don't get it....how is this game not offering a Co-op mode? I had figured it wasn't offering a competitive MP mode but would be giving some kind of horde mode given its squad based nature.
A Single Player experience ? Awesome. * Less people = less chance of somebody ruining your gameplay experience. * This game would be cool with 2-4 players though, or the sequel would I guess.
Indeed, it looks excellent, best graphics so far on any console game, hope the delay work wonders for this game. Can't wait to experience it.
I keep seeing headlines that talk about criticisms of the recent Twitch feed of The Order, but I haven't seen or heard the actual criticisms of the game. Just people wanting a higher quality feed. What about the game have people been moaning about?
Probably the fact that its yet another high profile game that has been delayed for a year. PS4 should not have been released until 2015 then maybe the likes of Drive Club, Deep Down and the Order could have been released in a reasonable time frame.
Why would the PS4 need to be delayed? Are you saying that the PS4 has no games, or just that the PS4 needs the delayed games to be viable?
@Biggest It was flaunted with many titles, 90% of them have been delayed or have disappeared off the radar. hello, Planetside 2...come in Planetside 2, can you hear me? The delayed games are the ones that turned heads, not Fifa or Injustice. They were likely asked by Sony to showcase what they had produced to date to build the hype. Realistically, the devs knew/know their expected delivery dates were optimistic AT BEST. I've never known a console release to have so many games delayed, considering the PS4 is supposed to be far easier to code for over the PS3 I don't recall any big hitters being delayed on PS3. PS4 was rushed to market to prevent MS getting a headstart, that's the reality of it.
Everyone is always comparing this to Gears of War but if there isn't coop it isn't Gears
Co-Op mode would be a great addition to this game
Got that right.
Well they've already said that the story doesnt support coop, but maybe in future dlc
It might look absolutely stunning but seeing that we can't (the public) get to play it for at least another 9 months. Right now, I don't care.. should never have announced it at E3 2013 and then gave a lot of BS saying it was coming in 2014.
I dont mind the delay but I will never buy a game for its graphics. But sadly alot of people judge games by its graphics :(
So far the best looking conosle game ever !
Dont worry, Uncharted 4 reveal is close.
I don't want any compromise on visuals or gameplay at the cost of having co-op... It's a single player experience on a linear progressive path telling the story of ONE character's Journey. And your character is sometimes alone, sometimes together with one or 3 other characters... The narrative simply isn't structured for such an experience neither is the world or the moment to moment game play... Given the decision to include branching melee and QTEs it would be weird to see that on a spit screen or even online multiplayer thing when most enemies in online co-op games are programmed to go after the first player who's hosting the single player. It just doesn't make sense. It's a single player game with single player centric mechanics. QTEs shown in the way they've demonstrated wouldn't work if it was coop. This isn't your typical Run of the mill cover based 3rd person shooter. Where you have shooting and the occasional in your face enemies that require you to tap "A" or ⃣ to instantly kill an enemy with a chainsaw or breaking out of a grip. These melee encounters branch off into entirely different outcomes and are highly cinematic. That alone disqualifies this game from the generic single player mechanics found in games like gears or war and even uncharted and last of us to a degree. Albeit, Both Uncharted and The Last of US are done more contextually, they facilitate the standard press "X" or "A" repeatedly to break from death grip or chainsaw this locust if it gets in your face type scenario. People who are crying about co-op need to look at the entire gameplay experience being detailed. Had this been only your standard shooting from cover then yeah, coop would work. But there is Platforming, and instant transitioning from gunning to One on One Branching melee/Contextual cinematic QTEs that solely focus on the main character, not the Accompanying 2-3 other characters that will populate your playing space from time to time. And the narrative and the world it self simply isn't designed to display that.
no co-op in this game? = cutting corners too bad i would buy ps4 for this game. for me only hope is in project beast.
