Joystiq: The next game from Metro 2033 developer 4A Games will shift away from a linear progression and offer players a more freeform approach to gameplay, studio CTO Oles Shishkovstov told Eurogamer this week.
Certainly seems to be a trend in the gaming industry.
The trend in the gaming industry so far is co-op. Which is somewhat annoying.
Please, about time! Stalkerize it already. Redux looking good but that linearity sucks the fun out of it.
Linear, straightforward, hand holding, etc. like any big game nowadays. I hope there would be a game like S.T.A.L.K.E.R again but much more unforgiving and complex. Early Access or Kickstarter is the only change it could happen but no luck so far ...
What about the game Areal, which is supposedly being made by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R devs and apparently is its spiritual successor (Kickstarter project)
No because stalker sucks
sounds good. can't wait to play it!
Awww yisss motherfucken bread crubs
Kinda how I wished the metro games would have been. They werent overly linear but I think they would have been far greater if there actually were more traveling in the tunels and some side tunels that you could explore quite far.
Interesting. I love the Metro games. Curious to see how a sandbox/open word Metro game could turn out. Personally, I'm hoping for larger/free spaces and not your standard open world. I feel they excel at the isolated,claustrophobic linear structure they have done well in Metro 2033 and Last Light.
i would like a metro game but with big open areas like stalker
Looking forward to their next game.
