Can State of Decay 2 survive against the battle royale horde? Chris Wallace talks to Undead Labs' design director Richard Foge about Xbox Game Pass, cross-play and the importance of community.
its good to hear the devs have a spine and are not including lootboxes or MTs
Hopefully gears, halo, and forza will take this stance with their next games. Not sure though.
I'd be shocked if they didn't, perhaps the lootbox controversy did some good, but cosmetics/execution-animations could still be bundled In Gears/Halo
As long as they are only limited to cosmetics I don't see the problem with MT's. However I"d like to get rid of loot boxes, because then that means even using in game currency for items will be randomized. Give me a list of objectives to complete to acquire sets of armor or let me just use in game currency or real currency to buy the cosmetics instead of randomizing it.
See Jinger I completely agree with your post. Cosmetic MTs wont ruin the game, but they completely cripple the experience of gaining certain armor/skins through objective work in gameplay. I want cosmetics that arent just pure luck (overwatch) and more you need to do x, y, and z to obtain this cool looking piece (halo 3).
@Slate Exactly. Halo 5 REQ cards to acquire armor and moves and such was not ideal. I enjoyed Gears 4's version where you could at least burn other cards to get scraps and use the scraps to just buy the armor you want. That being said, I'd much rather just have a standard system of objectives because it gives you something to work with instead of just grinding matches for points until you have enough to buy it. But either way I don't want randomized rewards.
I think both could work I just want a large pool of items some random some you work toward, because what I hate the most in games is everybody running around in the same thing.
Halo and gears micro transactions not bad at all best in the game and I love that they don’t sale maps like call of duty and battlefield and separate their fan base!
That’s good to hear.
Good to know there's no GaaS
its still on xbox game pass which is a gaas service 😂
@The_Jackel It's also available to purchase retail, digital and rental...so...why the emoji?
coz you said no gaas when there is
I wouldn't really call Game Pass a type of GaaS though, it's a rental service that allows users to rent various games. It doesn't add any other options, DLC, MT's or anything else to the actual games. I think your confusing the terminology.
@The_Jackel Do you even know what GaaS mean?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... i think you two are confused with the things that fall under "GAAS" Game pass falls under gaas. you play the game on game pass ps now gamefly ect its GAAS. (as if im not mistaken day 1 it will be on game pass) so yes state of decay 2 has Gaas option when you said it doesn't. yes you can buy physical like i have pre ordered as im not a fan of digital im just hoping its good and fun with coop.
Falls under GaaS and is GaaS are two different things. I rented GoW from Gamefly, does that make that game a GaaS type game? (emoji) And Wikipedia...not very convincing.
if you played gow via gamefly with DL'ing it to your console or streamed it to a PC (and don't own it) you used a gaas service to play it... if you went to a video store and rented the game or gamefly sent you a physical copy and you return it after a day or so its called renting.... would you like me to just type it out and not provide a link next time and just state it as fact? because we know what you would say about that hence why i gave a link also it's not my fault you don't understand what is GAAS and what isn't, maybe take the time to read wiki and maybe even google it and you will find the info... because i'm not going around in circles because you don't understand how something works, as that isn't my problem, that's yours
Yeah because eventually it will die out. It’s just a game mode
Definitive zombie experience
Now I think about, So Many Devs are using the word "Lootboxes" and saying we don't support and they are absolute shit and all, Well it's good but don't you guys think that now they are all bashing Lootboxes (it deserve though) mainly to get in people's good books? It's like a marketing stunt all of sudden
When is this game going Gold? It's coming out in less than 2 weeks and we know nothing which is really strange. I'm sure they'll release it and say "work in progress" and we won't have reviews for a couple of weeks after release.... I'm concerned.
There are tons of gameplay videos man and dev blogs and videos we know everything
We know what they've allowed us to see, but it hasn't gone gold. Meaning they haven't sent out a master disk to the game disk printing warehouse yet and it's releasing in 12 days... Usually they send that bad boy out a month before release so they have time to print all the disk and time to ship those disk around the world... Thats my concern.
@Skippy, You're concerned that they won't have the retail version printed to disc in time for launch? I wouldn't worry too much about that. Worst case, you could always pick it up digitally or give it a try on gamepass.
Huh? There is a ton of footage of footage and details out there for anyone that wants to get more info on the game. The other day, someone on here was just saying that this game is too over hyped.
I hate to be that guy but seeing this game make me excited and grateful for Days Gone alot more
I have the first State of Decay. Getting the second one. This is good news for gamers, low price, no microtransanctions or lootboxes. Yay
