Crystal Dynamics has refuted the suggestion that Marvel’s Avengers is designed foremost in a games-as-a-service model. During an E3 Coliseum panel, several members of the development team joined in a roundtable to reveal new details about the story.
Oh dear..........I just hope they don't go overboard with the microtransactions.
I think there is none since they said there was no loot boxes or pay to win
No loot boxes/pay to win = tons of cosmetic microtransactions The content updates are free though, so I guess thats the compromise
You live in fantasy land loool I want what you're smoking!
Aaah, you see i didn't know that but thats a hmmm* moment
Anyone who was expecting a singleplayer game set themselves up for disappointment. Avengers is about heroes working together cooperatively. So the game was always going to be a Co-op focused game. I knew this from the moment they announced this game was being made. Never once expected a singleplayer game to come out of this.
*cries in offline and local supported Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 exclusive to Switch.
Apparently it has arkham style gameplay. It's not my thing so I'll pass.
I'm so fucking tired of all this online only games.
So it's essentially a Destiny clone?
Thats exactly what it is. But anyone expecting a singleplayer game from a story about a collection of heroes doing things in co-op is Very delusional. This game was bound to be a co-op focused game. It only makes sense same with justice league, fantastic four, xmen etc. They only make sense as co-op games.
Just because a game has to be co-op does not mean it has to be a Destiny style GaaS clone. It also doesn't mean it can't be a good singleplayer game at the same time.
everyone who is supporting this deserves exactly the state of the industry is in.
The problem is that the rest of us have to deal with it while we wait for these other people to figure it out.
Sorry loved Spider-Man but I'm gonna have ta pass on this!
Then I see it as a game I will avoid. Wasted potential.
I hope it's good...but I don't like live service games, so I will have to wait and see.
