Outriders developer People Can Fly explains why Outriders PvP isn't available and how it's looking at post-launch content.
In my opinon, PVE co-op produces a better experience overall than PVP. More often than not with PVP you are at the mercy of P2P hosting, as well as algorithms introduced in the game to make it "playable" for all skill ranges.
pvp will just get ruined by cheaters
sad but true.
I was just about to say this, PvP in almost every game has a wealth of cheaters if the game isn't sanctioned and monitored and even then they have to many cheaters. Then you have the problem of balancing the expectations of PvP from what was viable against the computer versus live people. But, there is also no reward for playing fairly in PvP online which adds unwanted grievances/stress.
Maybe you all just suck. Sick of hearing about "cheaters" from ppl that can't string 2 kills together
PVP is the only reason I steer clear of multiplayer games like this. I'll give it a shot after reading this article.
Not needing to balance PvP alongside PvE means the devs can focus and listen to the community more too.
Exactly. Some games suffer on one end because people cry about how their one experience is unbalanced and the devs end up tweaking the whole game to fix a problem or two and and they end up causing more problems.
There's a free demo too!
No pvp means game will be dead after 3 months
Please list specific titles which were great games but "died" exclusively due to lack of PVP.
Borderlands says hello...
So do single-player games die after 3 months due to the lack of PVP? Please elaborate further....
Give me PVE multiplayer alongside solo gameplay ANY DAY. So tired of PVP holding back more interesting PVE options because everything has to be perfectly "balanced"
Cause not every game needs PVP, and most PVP sucks these days anyway
PVP with looters usually doesnt work, there is always someone that will have amazing gear that will dominate, and that isnt fun.
Especially in the Division it's pretty crazy how OP some builds can be. I like what Bungie did with Destiny where gear score doesn't matter until the Iron Banner events
Ill second that, thats the only one where it feels somewhat balanced an dyou can still play and have fun. Jebus the Division, (twitch), yep nothing fair at all, and because of that you are not getting anything out of the darkzone to help your situation. i cant believe how badly that turned out
Everyone would have the same loadouts with some choices and customizations thrown in of course. PvP is feasible if people's fancy gear & weapons are set aside for the duration of the match. The match wouldn't reward players with new gear or weapons- just money, maybe some skins or something, & a potential ranking system.
Not hard to explain. The game sucks.
There's reason the Dark Zone in The Division was and still the most vile place in the game. Before numerous Title Update, DZ was the only place to get a decent loot from Dark Zone only to be robbed and ganked by rogue agents.
And exactly why this will go straight to hell once everybody powers thru it the first few weeks.
I am going to go to heaven playing this game, hell sucks.
Pve barely holds up.
Honestly, put a ranking system on cheaters and suspected cheaters and then put them in their own arena where they can fight each other. That should pretty much put an end to it or at least a solution to the problem.
I think this game would do great with PvP. I'm level 5 it's fun.
