Bleeding Edge is like Overwatch meets Power Stone

This...is a great headline o.o. Here's hoping this is true!

I cant wait for this. MP goodness just how I like it 😎

gamer78041461d ago

I'm not really a fan of the character designs on this game... just can't do it. I guess it will be free on gamespass or something at least.

ChunkyChicken1461d ago

Finding it hard to get excited for this one. Thank God for game pass?

Godmars2901461d ago

Thank god for being manipulated into playing anything and everything shoved in your face, eroding your ability to discern quality or personal preferences?

ChunkyChicken1461d ago

It’s bad for me to give a game a chance because I have access to it? Just because I’m not hyped for it doesn’t mean I’m not going to pass up the chance to give it a go. Jesus Christ man

Man, harshest "play fewer games because that's what gamers do" argument on here.

If it costs them no extra to play it because they have Gamepass, or XBL Gold, or PS+, then why not try it out? Why must they only play games that they would normally pay $60 for? Does that mean waiting on a deep sale is also "eroding your ability to discern quality or personal preferences?"

I just don't get your comment there Godmars290. You're associating having a Gamepass subscription with just this one title when that's just not how it works. Heck, I have Gamepass because they allowed me to convert it over from my normal XBL Gold sub (why wouldn't I upgrade something for only $1?). I paid $1 to have access to more even though I already paid for less. But, if I try out Bleeding Edge or another game on there that I normally wouldn't I'm "eroding my ability to discern quality or personal preferences" and not "trying games that cost me nothing to try that perhaps I didn't know I would like but also would make me more informed on these games in general?"

@Christopher:

I don't like the direction MS is going because they're tone deaf as far a gaming is concerned. The over emphasis they place on online multiplayer. Now they're putting all of their multiplayer titles on a general access platform. If they only continue making MP, all of its going to bleed together into on big multiplayer blob.

@Godmars

You seem to be missing the point or trying very hard to not understand it. There are more than MP titles on Game Pass, a lot of single player games.

If you don't like MS offerings then try the other games that appear on Game Pass.

You're making up your own delimma that has zero to do with anything relevant.

" If they only continue making MP, "

Who said they were only making MP games? Where are you getting your sources from?

"Now they're putting all of their multiplayer titles on a general access platform"

Could you make less sense?

"..all of its going to bleed together into on big multiplayer blob."

I guess you can make even less sense.

Godmars2901460d ago

@gangsta_red:
You don't understand that most if not all of those SP titles are ones that MS bought into or otherwise made a deal to get them on Game Pass. Are not in-house or 2nd party commissions. Don't get that Game Pass is similar to the mobile gaming model, and the mobile gaming model heavily impacts the design mentality of games on it.

Have a good time Xbox players, this looks like fun! If it is anything like Powerstone, that is a plus for sure.

Chevalier1461d ago

Looks more like Anarchy Reigns to me.

Ninja Theory Drops Bleeding Edge Development to Focus on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II & More

Today Ninja Theory announced that content updates for its multiplayer combat game Bleeding Edge will cease.

Tech51038d ago

the game could have thrived with another studio partnering to add more characters and levels.
there are still old games still receiving partnerships like FH4 and Smash bros adding more to their multiplayer content. anyways can't wait to see more of Hellblade 2 game now that it's being at the center of focus.

BLizardXD1038d ago

game still has some very good animations. Hellblade 2 though is going to be sick running on UE5.

"Ninja Theory Drops Bleeding Edge"

PlayStation gamers - "good"

SpeedDemon1038d ago

I'm not a PS gamer and think it's a good move, there's no use in beating a dead horse.

Shiken1038d ago

TBH, Hellblade 2 is a much more important title to the XBox library.

Rachel_Alucard1038d ago (Edited 1038d ago )

You should be glad because now they can focus on something that isn't a steaming pile of shite. But no instead you'd rather have one group live in your head rent free for every single thing.

Christopher1038d ago

I think most PS fans will agree that this is nothing to do with Ninja Theory and they want them to make Hellblade 2. It is good to see them make a new game rather than hitch themselves longer to an IP that they really aren't getting the support they should get from Microsoft to advertise it and grow it with new content.

CobraKai1038d ago

Xbox gamers - “good”

SmokinAces1038d ago

You know what they say about assumptions. Just becasue a person thinks its better they focus resources on whats sure to be a better game then on a game that has reviewed very poorly and has very little interest from the gaming community doesn't make them a "Playstation gamer". Its 2021, time to grow up and stop with the fanboy nonsense.

Kilua1037d ago

Ok. Ninja Theory must double down on bleeding edge development. Im sure that will make everyone happy

Not really, if this was suppose to show NT's competence as well as MS's "free hand" towards devs.

If, as many defend, this was an original project that suffered no micro-controlling influence.
