What does this mean? Very little details have been revealed, but the idea is simple: separate the new gamers from the old.
I’d be lying if I said this inclusion didn’t worry me. I can definitely acknowledge why Epic has introduced the mode. After all, games like Call of Duty sell by the truckload by purposely appealing to the very market Epic wants to attract with this new mode.
That said, it seems to be a very vulnerable implementation, and as someone that considers themselves to be a “hardcore” console gamer – five-plus days of online action in Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3 – I am strongly of the belief that there will be certain gamers that take advantage of the mode.
