That's pretty interesting considering I keep hearing about MS only interested in GaaS. Then again paid DLC can also be considered GaaS. But that would mean almost all games have a form of GaaS. ...GaaS... That should fill my quota for saying GaaS for the day.
Day one! Paid dlcs is nothing new on State of Decay. Breakdown and Lifeline are two dlcs released for the original. To me, Lifeline is more of an expension though. I´m glad that Microsoft seems to be listen to gamers after all. :)
I know... It's hard to keep all that GaaS held in... I wonder what the paid DLC will be though?
You got major GaaS dude.
State of Decay is being developed by Undead Labs and I have no idea why some of you seem to think that Microsoft is guiding it's development. Undead Labs isn't owned by Microsoft.
The game is being developed by Undead Labs for Microsoft. The game is under direction by MS for Xbox. No one said MS owned Undead Labs.
That's good to know.
agree. it's one of my most anticipated games so glad they won't have MTX I wonder what the dlc will be? whole new areas hopefully.
I like options, not mandatory options. Good to hear that Undead Lab and Team Xbox not going the route of paid DLC.
They will have paid DLC. “Undead_NicoleUndead Labs • 1d I've stated multiple times that we aren't going to have MTX, but we will have paid DLC.”
Better than MTs
I Rather have cosmetic mt or lot boxes. I hope this doesnt split the community
Based on the first State of Decay, i think it will not. That said, the original State of Decay doesn´t have a coop multiplayer mode, so, it remains to be seen.
Will this one have coop ?
Yep it will.
4 player drop in and drop out of peoples games type. I'm sure I read a while agp you can send up a flare and that invites people (randoms) who are looking to join games join you.
In a non competitive game like SoD MT wouldn't hurt and if it meant dlc would be free I'd choose MT with free dlc any day. I'd be spending no money on worthless MT(cosmetic is worthless and weapons, etc ruin the difficulty and sense of survival so I would not spend a penny on it) while getting free add on content vs having to pay for that add on content.
wow...I didnt expect that from MS(especially after Phil saying they want to focus on GaaS) but again, after H:ZD, zelda BoTW, and how Hawaii looking into classifying loot boxes as gambling, I should have seen that coming
That was before the Battlefront II debacle though
But, but, MS is evilllllll
But seriously, I'd rather them put MT's in and do the DLC free much like Halo 5 and Gears 4. Doesn't detract from the experience and doesn't give any players any 'edge' over another. When you join someone elses game you can't even interact with their key NPC's and such so no one can hop in your game and ruin you with bought items. I know I'll get downvoted for this opinion, but whatever. I'd rather let the whales spend their money on cosmetic shit then me having to pay for DLC.
I never buy MTs. I don’t have a problem with MTs either, as long as they don’t unbalanced the game or cause pay-to-win mechanics. However, I very firmly dislike the RNG associated with MTs.
I actually agree. I would rather not buy MTs and get the DLC for free. If idiots want to pay our fair share by dumping money into MTs then I say go for it. It’s a win/win for everyone. We get free dlc, devs get paid and MT people pay to win.
Those games are only in mp competition..its different
Am ok with paid DLC as long as it adds a decent amount to the game.
Wow that’s surprising! It seems like a game that would actually work with random loot lol.
Please don't compromise your vision listening to people who are not going to buy your games or even own the console. There's nothing wrong with MT's done right and I'd rather have a full great experience in a game then 10 hours of game play and than your waiting for the next DLC.
I got the first state of decay. Doubt i'll play it though. Might get fed up and put myself off the follow up. Anyone think i'd just be best jumping in at State of decay 2 ?
The story doesn’t matter. State of decay is a simulation game. You build your characters and if they die then they’re gone for the rest of the game. You build your base and collect resources, etc. It’s very much gameplay focused but that’s what separates it from the rest for me. If you already have SOD1 I would suggest playing it for at least a little bit to see if that kind of storyless sim is something you want to play. State of decay 2 will be the same only with co-op this time. I’m hyped but it’s not for everyone and why waste 60 bucks if you don’t like it?
Yeah, i did play a bit and it seemed decent. It only cost a few quid. I just wanted to see if it was any use. Doubt i could play 1 and then 2, so i'll wait for 2 at some point.
EA DEFINITELY tested the waters to the extreme for the sake of the industry...now paid DLC will be a good thing for a developer to do so long as micro-transactions are not a part of it. It is only a matter of time before something more hhmm sinister comes along and then micro-transactions will be a positive thing, just watch.
Bullshit its an MS product no way it doesn't have GaaS
I'm looking forward to seeing more on this game. It was one of the exclusives that got me to buy the system.
I just hope they have some kind of PVP and not just coop. I liked the first one and playing with friends is always great
