After close to a week in BETA, Red Dead Redemption’s ‘Red Dead Online’ is due to receive some changes as Rockstar will be rolling out some later this week to make the version of the game “rewarding and fun”.
Rockstar issues the following announcement on Twitter:
“Thanks to everyone who has participated in the beta so far, we appreciate your help in testing the game! Your feedback in these early days will be instrumental in helping formulate updates in every aspect of the experience.
“Our current areas of focus include the in-game economy, which will require some additional balancing in order to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun, as well as some persistent bugs that are causing players to be kicked from sessions.”
This is in response to backlash from players who have complained that a huge discrepancy in item prices and mission rewards between the campaign and multiplayer exists, killing the fun of the actual gameplay, and pushing away their interest in continuing.
One of the main complaints is Rockstar’s apparent inclusion of microtransactions that has drawn comparisons to mobile games. Rockstar has already confirmed that the gold bars are a premium currency that players will be able to buy in the Red Dead Online in-game Store with their real money, not exactly something that has been met positively.
EA Still Focusing on Anthem
The game is a colossal bust, mainly due to both BioWare and EA who botched everything after launch, but EA is still promising to focus on Anthem.
While the general concept and gameplay mechanics of Anthem was truly awesome, everything else was a dud thanks to the companies who failed their fans, in so many ways, so much.
“We brought together these two groups of players who were making this emotional value calculation on two different vectors,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said, according to GameDaily. “One was traditional BioWare story-driven content, and the other was this action-adventure type content. About the 30 or 40 hour mark they really had to come together and start working in on the elder game. At that point everyone kind of went, ‘Oh, hang a minute.’ Now the calculation is off. It’s off because I’ve got a friend who sits in this other category of player.”
With Anthem seemingly dwindling away any interest, EA and BioWare seem committed to a long-term plan.
“IP lives for generations, and runs in these seven to ten year cycles” Wilson said.
“So, if I think about Anthem on a seven to ten-year cycle, it may not have had the start that many of us wanted, including our players. I feel like that team is really going to get there with something special and something great, because they’ve demonstrated that they can.”
Borderlands 3 Story Is Going to Be Epic
For fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of Borderlands 3, you’ll be happy to know that the game will have quite the grind associated with the main story.
Borderlands 3 creative director Paul Sage revealed that it will take over 30 hours to complete the story mode, making the game quite massive.
“I’d still say we were very ambitious,” Sage said, during an interview with GamesBeat.
“My tech team would say we were really ambitious sometimes. [laughs] There’s so much to the game. We go to these different worlds. The length of the game being 35 hours, if you just go through the main story — that’s not including doing too many side missions. I think there was a lot of ambition right at the beginning.”
