I loved BotW, but this hurts. If they don't make significant changes, I will be pretty disappointed. It had better at LEAST include a very strong story. Otherwise, it's no more than just DLC.
Why in the world would this not be a full-fledged sequel with tons of new stuff to see and do?
Yeah if they can pull this off and give the feeling of “holy shit I can’t believe this was under BotW the whole time, this changes everything” that’d be amazing
Can I just say "even running around" BOTW is sort of lamey because the world doesn't change too much outside of the water/mountain regions - its just large tracts of nothing.
I've been thinking about this all afternoon, and I keep going back to how great it is that BotW has memorable world design. In 99% of open-world games, I'm almost entirely reliant on the mini-map to know where I am and where I'm going, and consequently I never really feel like I'm part of those worlds. Like you, I know BotW Hyrule like the back of my hand, and it was the first game of that scale where I could turn off the map and know exactly where I was and where I was going. That familiarity and sense of place was huge for me, and really made me believe I was a part of this huge open-world for the first time.
Like when Far Cry Primal reused Far Cry 4's map and structure, despite being marketed as a totally different and unique spinoff.
This isn't even remotely true.Can I just say "even running around" BOTW is sort of lamey because the world doesn't change too much outside of the water/mountain regions - its just large tracts of nothing.
there literally was nothing to do excpet climbing trees + move rocks to find deku seedlings things.
Well it doesn't seem likely. But when they said 'BotW Sequel' my first thought wasn't that it'd be a bunch of new stuff on the BotW map. I was expecting a whole new map with the same feeling of discovering the unknown. So if we're not getting that that's dissapointing; no matter how cool any new additions are.
Do you guys seriously think there arent going to be new locations? What the hell lolWhat I expected, and still disappointing. The shot in the trailer of the castle rumbling does give me some hope that there will be some sort of major geography-altering event before the game begins though.
If everything is in the same spot or the terrain in roughly the same then that is a major blow for me. Exploring a massive new land was my #1 most wanted thing from the next installment and I can't help but feel that this takes away from it a bit.
Maybe they aren't the Link and Zelda of BotWits a direct sequel, it wouldn't make much sense to have drastic changes. We might see stuff like floating islands (Hyrule Castle in the teaser) which reveal caves underneath, but not significant changes to the whole map. Link and Zelda don't look 10 years older or anything.
