Everything over heard says this has a great single player campaign with a terrible GaaS game bolted onto it.

Shame

So tempted to give this a go. I've watched lots of vids about the game and maybe a reasonable summary would be:

+ Good campaign
+ The environments look decent
+ The heroes are fun to play
+ Lots of loot and upgrades to collect
- Repetitive, unimaginative missions in multiplayer
- Few different types of environments
- Needs more heroes to play as
- The loot and upgrades rarely offer visual changes; the costumes are locked behind game grind or expensive real-world purchases

I'm thinking that the negative aspects are things that can be improved upon; the core is decent. With the price drop I'm kinda feeling that this could be a good moment to jump aboard. Will check out a few more vids!

I do keep feeling I should buy this. As it'll get a free PS5 update and even for the single player, £30 for a PS5 game isn't bad.

It's £26.99 in Sainsbury's but I can get 20% off this weekend. I'm seriously tempted.

Bought it. I'm now having it as part of my Christmas present so I'll have wait to play it.

My barrier of entry is the daft premise of the Avengers collecting loot which within the realm of the game world makes absolutely no sense. I'll probably grab it for the campaign when it's down to Anthem level of prices.

Same. I got Anthem when it dropped below £20, smashed through the single player and genuinely had fun with it. This looks to be heading in exactly the same direction but I think I'm less interested. Will probably wait till next year when it really plummets.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this hit Gamepass and/or PS Plus next year just to try and bump the player base to get in some more micro transactions.

I can see them trying to relaunch the game once the Next Gen patches hit. Try and give the game a kickstart to get it going again.

Hoping that it's drops under the £20 mark, then I'll bite for the Single Player.

PlayStation 5 and X Series on March 18th 2021

Also Hawkeye free DLC released on the same day.

Next gen has cross save and cross play.

Wait so the first two DLC characters are both archers? When you've got all of The Avengers to choose from, you go with that?

That this piece of ultra bland crap was allowed to exist and pull effort from developing other more original titles was bad enough in the first place, but the fact that it has been allowed to limp along with this much support when other more deserving titles have been dropped so quickly is insane.

It was at 300 concurrent players today. A disaster considering it's the biggest entertainment brand on the planet.
