While speaking with Examiner, Andrew Willans, Senior Game Designer at Ubisoft Reflections, shared with us that players won’t be able to level up their crew while playing on their own.
I find the fact that next-gen games are getting more and more multiplayer-centric really unappealing. Online is good but taking notable elements of a game to be exclusive only to online isn't always good.
Agreed. I like having the multiplayer component in there, but single player "experiences" are still amazing to enjoy, especially in an open-world.
Only speaking for myself, but I'm a bit anti-social. I enjoy some Multiplayer, but mainly as an add on to the main single player experience. I like how Destiny gives you a choice of playing lone wolf or with others.
I agree. I have been really wanting to make the leap to "next gen" but the more online centric the games become the more of a turn off it is for me. With a massive backlog of ps3 titles and a backlog of ps1 & 2 titles on psn the next gen consoles are really going to have to appeal to me to get me to make the leap and rewarding multiplayer over single player is not the way to go.
You guys need to quit being antisocial! A simple hello can start a conversation. Why do you guys think Sony included a mic with the PS4. I find the PS community very anti social. Ever since ps3 i thought it was because a mic didnt come included but now with the ps4 i still hear no one talk in games
@Ripsta7th Anti-social for not using the mic.. Oh I'm sorry, I've used PSN/XBL and PC gaming and oh yes, I love being called a _ocksucking bastard.. or being told to _uck off, this is OUR game.. Yeah, that shit don't get old quick.. _uck the little retards out there, learn to speak properly and might engage you, otherwise don't waste my time WHILE i try to play multiplayer.
So they are basically pushing always online mechanics. Why not just market this game as an MMO then?
They already confirmed that it is a MMO.
massively 8-player Online Racing Paying Game
That's exactly what they did , they are just throwing a bone at those wanting to play alone
Oh boy, this MMO is basically an online racer sigh.
Makes me think of GTA online where technically you can play by yourself but there will just be tons of stuff you can't do and hardly anything you can do when playing alone.. and that sucks
Well One more game down the drain for me!!! All this must be online crap sucks, EA did a racing game years ago online, after people spent money on the game n DLC EA cancel the server then you could not play it, What's going to happen when UBisoft does this game like that, that's why I won't be getting it, it looks like after 30 plus years of gaming I'm have to find a new hobby...I'll give this gen a chance.. Funny how everyone flame MS over always Online n not much said bout games being online always..it's the same dang thing just in the game n not the system is all.
How is it the same ? it's a MMO game from the start . You can obviously choose to play other types of games . Should those prove successful will they incite publishers to try more mmos on consoles ? Obviously yes . It was the same issue with mp centric games taking over single player , and yet SP is still around . PS : i'm not interesting by the game , but i find the reactions over something we knew from the start about the Crew , odd .
Can't level-up while playing single player, huh? Well, I wasn't really looking at this game too hard for purchase, before. Now, I have total amnesia towards this game...
forced MP? no thank you.
Some people enjoy playing with themselves.
Indeed, you tend to discover enjoyable things and then mock some people's methods.
sorry, im not buying a game where im forced to play with others every damn time. im sick of the online heavy games even in single player mode.
Shame if you aint got no pals!
Shame if you're a corporate shill that's got to eat whatever they spoon-feed you because you have no balls to make your own decisions!
You can't progress your crew, as the crew has to work cooperatively in the game. You can still play by yourself, and progress thru the single player narrative missions. It sounds like you can progress yourself just by playing the game on your own.
but without a crew you'll probably miss some things too
Well it read like you could go through the narrative missions but unlocking upgrades had to be done with a crew.
So I guess a introvert is screwed?
Why is it so hard for devs to understand that not everyone wants to play with friends EVERY time they boot up a console? I don't. Playing with friends is great but I love my single player experiences too. Options are a beautiful thing and that is one of the main things that I love about Destiny. I can play by myself and still enjoy the core game or I can do it with friends when I feel like it. Nothing is forced. I will definitely pass on this game now.
