I don't see it having staying power, especially if next years COD has a BR.
Not sure if serious. And Respawn sent Titanfall 2 out to die, not EA btwCouldn’t be more deserving. Way to go Vince. Dude builds a great series for EA goes to activision to create a blockbuster for them, then comes back to EA and has his next IP that had tons of potential sent to die. Great to see him get another amazing franchise up and running.
EA screwed him over multiple times, Medal of Honor and titanfall. They better do some sucking now that he has created a golden goose for the studio. The money this game is about to rake in will dwarf battlefront and battlefield. Prob combined
Custom settings wasn't highly requested
Waning player population, slow updates, still suffers from major bugs, the UI is a catastrophe, and they do things like add paint cans that have people playing to collect those instead of actually play. I like Blackout but it's getting to be a pain to find matches reliably on PC anymore, and it's pretty hard to justify the state it's in at this point in its release.
to be fair, battlefield was delayed to it's date after Respawn had already finalized the date. Though still not a good move.
Introducing millions of new people to gaming, showing that monetization can work without loot boxes and generalizing the "battle pass" for multiplayer games, for starters.
I can only imagine..
This is using Azure, thats why it had such a smooth launch.
I think it’s a positive fad and great for kids to have something new they can share a communal passion for - a game that encourages social interaction, teamwork, construction and tactics as much as aggression.
I bought BLOPS 4 for Blackout mainly but ended up playing and enjoying just regular TDM all the time, only played Blackout a couple of times and the times I wanted to jump in it, the match making was down or it took 15 minutes before finding someone and left it at that.Apex has basically made me stop playing Blackout... which sucks because I paid $35 digital for it... I guess there is traditional cod mp and zombies.
People who are saying Blackout should go F2P are correct. Apex shows you can make a damn good standalone F2P BR first person shooter.
The fact I can actually hear whats happening in this game alone makes it better than Blackout, which had the worst sound design of any BR game Ive played.
Blackouts numbers have been dropping well before thie game came out. And unlike this iteration, the uniqueness of a BR mode in cod will be gone.
