It's back to the ME trilogy or No Man's for a good space game.

Im sensing a common theme. Exploration isnt amazing and that is whats holding it back.

The amount of loading this game has is insane most ur playtime will be loading when u walk in a door up a ladder or moving plantets lol

Ristul271d ago

That's the problem with Bethesda's engine, it's so old and loading times were always a problem with past Bethesda games, but times have moved on and in this day and age we expect better.

PunksOnN4G271d ago

Yeh your right with this GEN loading is all but gone on Most Ps5 titles.. When i went to my Grandmas i too kthe Ps4 cuz yall know i aint about to take a ps5 with al lthem kids running around my grandmas. and MY GOD.. The loading on some of those games is =crazy lol

MontyeKristo271d ago

That literally takes .5 seconds to load - equal to the time it would take to literally climb the ladder.

Who cares. 😑

I feel like the second big update that releases late this year will do just that. Part of the story expansion is also new means of transportation on planets.

A good DLC could turn some heads. The Destiny games got momentum that way too.

What player spike?

I checked steamcharts through the link in the article and it went from 8,000 to 11.500, so yea 20% but when the game peaked at 330,000 It's safe to say that the actual effect of this update was negligible.

LostPotato5d ago

Doubt it'll ever get redemption. As many developers have said in various interviews it's beyond saving.

Just release the mod tools and expansion and move on.

Profchaos4d ago

Cyberpunk 2077 had some strong bones i disliked it on launch because I could see the potential I could see the strengths of what they wanted to achieve but it wasn't done yet

They didn't get the memo the game is dead and the Bethesdabots only want magic and fantasy.

Boy_the_CowRoy4d ago

Starfield fans? The game only has 9 thousand current players, worldwide! As a company you cannot waste time on creating "Major features", it is simply not profitable. Just move on.
