Ed writes: Anthem is finally being put out misery. Anthem 2.0 has been cancelled & the game will be left to wither. Are there any good times to recall?
I can't wait for the lawsuits.
I'll be adding my name to this class action lawsuit for sure!
No YOU BETTER LEAVE EA ALONE!! They are a great company that cares for their customers and have a love for making great games! Seriously how dare you...
I want in. How do I get my $3.50?
Same. I picked up the gold edition and never got my dlc.
@NotoriousWhiz After the lawyers extract their fees from the settlement you'd be lucky to get a coupon for $3.50 off your next purchase
So funny how people have been hyping this game since the reveal, just out of CGI. Best surprise of the show.... turned out to be a good joke
(class action) lawsuit for what? they released a game that was in our opinion not good enough? I think the servers are still up for Anthem or not? if so, you are gonna be hardpressed with any lawsuit seems after the cdpr debacle ppl learned a new word and are now throwing it around left and right. Yes the game sucked, yeah it wasnt a pretty dev cycle, but its still a game you can play even though its a pile of shit, but not worth any lawsuits. sometimes you know, an AAA game is just not good.
There was like 50 promises broken. Even the initial E3 trailer wasn't in the game. The weapon showcased, the movable bases, the shaper storm, the cave they showed off. Multiple other things too. Plus we were promised an actual DLC road map and content would be completely free. That was part of buying the game. More was promised over 10 years. The servers won't be up for 10 years I bet, plus there isn't any content.
I don't buy all that c , it's hard to imagine up to this date some publishers and studios relys on people's bad choices before knowing the game itself , marketing s games so people buy it accidentally and get pissed for being unable to refund it is beyond comprehension in today's market , they need grow up and move on ,there is no place for this type of market anymore.
This is why I love my single player games. Don't get me wrong online only titles are fine too, but then stuff like this can happen and now you can't even play the game anymore. So if you invested time into it, all of it is gone in an instant. That's why it's good to have choices but fanboys always have to make it black and white. They always deal in absolutes. That's not life. Even game development is not like that but we all know how that goes lol. Sorry for all those who bought this game and put time in not it.
I want in even though I never bought the game. We're all entitied by being subjected to it's existance. Jokes jokes
I recently stated playing anthem and truthfully it has the foundation to be a great game. Killing this game is a shame. Screw you EA.
That's the problem. They charged full price and sold you a "foundation" without ever bothering to make a full experience.
No. The initial trailer showed the potential of what could have been a good to great game. EA pretty much said "F**k that" and blew of dev time just to blow it while mandating Frostbite as an inhouse across the board game engine - when no one knew how to use it and it was crap for the specific type of game - just so as not to pay license fees for UE4, which their dev teams were very familiar with.
Bit of a harsh title.
Not really, it never delivered on 90% of it's claims/promises, was panned critically and sold like crap. To promise a No Man's Sky style revival after all that and cancel it too truly is the final nail in the coffin. Anthem, Fallout 76 and Cyberpunk are the 3 pillars that define "failure" at this point, I'm not holding my breath, but I'd like to think publishers will learn from them.
I think one company paid for marketing of those 3 games?🤔
@Luc all of them went fully commercial and they were all advertised. I remember youtube and t.v. ads for all 3. Unless that's what you're saying and I'm just reading your comment wrong.
I think their fail was completed when they release the game looking totally visually downgraded from its initial trailer, not sure why some devs or publishers keep doing this when there is 99% chance they will receive a backlash from fans, and on top of that this game was released with some braindead MT's. So yeah the game was already a fail since day 1 imo.
I feel sorry for the devs that worked on this game. It’s failure is due to extreme mismanagement, and we can only hope Bioware learns from this.
Lol what a waste of resources 🤣
Would you say that it 'choked on its aspirations?'
Y'all know they're still accepting microtransactions, right? It doesn't take many gambling-addicted $20,000 whales to equal the same amount of money they would have made selling a million copies (developers/publishers/retaile rs only get a fraction of the money you pay).
Honestly these types of games are only gonna work when we can get VR to legendary levels. I’m looking forward to that when I’m 90
Anthem should have been a full story based single player adventure whilst offering an online mode with 100s of quests etc coop gameplay it could have been amazing
It would be great if they released what they have so far in one final update for the game. They could also release a single player patch
I'm glad I didn't spend any money on this.
The one thing I liked about this game was the flying mechanics, they can definitely salvage that to use on other games in the future. Jetpack in Mass Effect 4 has to be a given.
I hate seeing things suffer at least take it out back and shoot it
Fun game that failed because it was rushed out. I was actually looking forward to the overhaul because i like the gameplay so much. Oh well
Did anyone else read this in Palpatine's voice? 😝
Bioware is PATHETIC! They sure had enough money to build that swanky new office space. I sense a for sale sign in the VERY near term.
I have 35 years, poor gaming experience and now 90% of the time i able to sense when game will be shit, never bought anthem or cyber punk and many other crapy games
gfy Twinfinite. I miss when you were indie and cool. Now you're just another clickbait machine
Yeah why drag it on? You made a shit game move on. Use those resources on better things. The people who got screwed need to get over it too. It’s your fault, don’t preorder games. If you want to gamble you can’t cry if you lose, that’s some weak shit. Wait until games are 30 bucks and you can watch lets plays. Or accept the fact that you are going to gamble on a game that you might not enjoy. It happens but it’s worth it when you do find a cool one. The latest game I bought on sale was road redemption for like 7 bucks and it’s awesome.
It's amazing how before the game came out, they did those weekly streams where you could see dozens and dozens of pieces of armor in their inventory. None of it was ever in the game.
make it offline
Could cyberpunk be next?
