Dead Space 2's online multiplayer is still coming, according to none other than EA boss, John Riccitiel
Ahh first bioshock 2 and now dead space.... I rather have a full and only long single player than short campaign and mediocre online multiplayer
Bioshock 2's Multiplayer had its flaws, but it was still enjoyable. I have faith that a good multiplayer can be developed for the Dead Space franchise aslong as it keeps the atmosphere, I think a Co-Op wave based mode or survival mode is whats needed.
This, don't want competative MP in dead space, but co-operative stuff would be very fun, especially when it's separate from the main game, thereby not detracting from the atmosphere.
"I rather have a full and only long single player than short campaign and mediocre online multiplayer " What makes you think that the SP campaign will be shorter or of lesser quality or the online will be mediocre? You are making assumptions based on very little information. The dev team could be larger, they could have a dedicated team for MP alone (like UC2 did), they may have more development time. ETC. Yes, some games seem to have the MP tacked on, but many others don't. The only way to know is to wait for the game to drop and make your call then. rather than condemning a game 1/2 a year before it's released.
Remember kids, everybody said that UC2's multiplayer was tacked on before release and that it wasn't needed. Turns out the naysayers were wrong there. UC2's multiplayer is awesome. How about waiting to at least see some MP footage before thinking it'll ruin the SP campaign or that it's not needed. Just sayin' ;) And no, I don't work for Visceral Games lol. Just trying to be a voice of reason.
I like how you think your defending of the game means you must work for them. Trust me, that was not my first assumption...
So true bro, time and time again developers repeat their mistakes over and over again adding a multiplayer mode to a game where it's not needed. Adam Sessler said it best "Not every game needs a multiplayer mode in it" If multiplayer fans don't like it? Tell them to wait for the next COD or Halo.
Agreed with you hamoor... As long as they keep the Single Player kickin' ass like the first one...they can do whatever they want with the Multi player.
sadly that is a rare thing.
True that.... well maybe if it turns out crappy...they can pull a Devil May Cry 3 and make the 3rd one kick ass (if they do it)
trying to let u stick with their game and avoid u sold/trade it after u finish the single player ,kind of decreasing used games market ,i think so
100000% agree, multiplayer is nice for a day or two, but because its normally tacked on, its never fun longer than that
Lol, just what I was going to mention, BioShock 2 Its one of those games that really does NOT need a multiplayer.
i hate the inclusion of pointless multiplayer in every game
Dead Space doesn't need it.
Condemned 2 comes to mind...
Yeah, one game that definitely doesn't need multi is dead space. But hey, if you could play as necromorphs and use all the vents to move around, that might be cool. But, that's not going to happen.
I for one am looking forward to this. Playing as a mutant/alien would be awesome. I didn't expect multiplayer in DS2, but I welcome the feature! When considering the quality of Dead Space, I expect Visceral Games to be able to make a decent MP component. CO-OP please!
onoes, don't waste your time on MP :(
there is some sort of coop
I agree...but I think it shouldn't always be there... Like in RE5 with Sheva I never really felt scared playing by myself cause I was like ohh someone else is with me, and I let my guard down. I say only have an extra character if there is only a human attached to it, otherwise don't include it in the single player campaign.
well, 2 tack a quick online mode, they could include dead space extraction as a prequel co-op chapter to the main story, a la splinter cell conviction. us xbox 360, ps3 n pc users havent got to play that game yet. i rather they dont focus too much on multiplayer, so tacking on dead space extraction could do the job.
i don't get it... why every game must have multiplayer ? dead space is best horror game that i've ever played if they add mp this only will ruin the game for me D:
Never played the first one but my interest just got higher. Time to get Dead Space!
I hate it when a game company forces a game that doesnt need multiplayer, to have multiplayer. all that wasted time making a multiplayer mode when it could be used up making the single player game so much better. this is a survival horror and meant to feel like youre alone. how can u do that in multiplayer i will never know. Its like when resident evil turned co-op. That was a stupid choice as it now means it isnt scary.
ruining or minimizing the experience on single player game with multilayer options. HATE IT
There are plenty games out there that have multiplayer. There are a lot of games out there that shouldn’t have multiplayer, Dead Space is one of them.
There's gonna be a mad dash for the line gun.
I don't play online in 90% of my games. Just give me a good sp
Fail, they do it because dumbass only want online in everything they pay for. Then the Devs wana make the "consumers" happy by giving them what they want, not thinking thow much itll make their game look retarded. i got Bioshock 2, im only going to play the story mode.
It will be innovative eh?... we will see about that. Personally hating the sound of this, DS does not need multiplayer and it seems like a waste of development time. If they do some sort of co-op however it 'may' be good.
