Seriously. I was annoyed about it at first, but they really were two very different games with two very different styles of play and levels of difficulty depending on which one you play. Of course it would have been nice to get both sides for the price of a single game, but by the time I finished, I wasn't really mad about it after the sheer number of hours of fun I had.

Yea, but they are actually pretty generous with that too. 4 tabs by default, and you can have a second account to mule more. If you also use the what 22 character slots for each account as extra space, it adds up.

Their mistakes yield a lot of cash... I am a star wars fan, I saw dozens of casual that bought playstations or xbox just to play the first battlefront. Ho they liked it for a few days and then forgot about it, till the second one came around and they bought it just the same.

This is the big bulk of the market. People that actually don't really play those games, and therefore don't really care so much about those predatory schemes because they aren't informed the slightest.

SIL3N7_ELIT3

1 week ago

Yeah but those players aren't where they make their money. They are looking for consistent players who continue to play or stream for months and continue to buy loot boxes. Even with a single player game they are going to want consistent players for dlc additions. Hopefully they don't fuck around with the dlc and make them necessary to finish the game.

Edit: why the down votes. The money doensnt come from people who buy the game and play for 5 hours. They don't want players like that. They want consistency and streamers to build a fanbases that likes buying skins and lootboxes.

Herlock
15
1 week ago

Whales are a fraction of the player base, always have been.

Also the "casuals" are more prone to buying premium shit. When you are not as much invested in the media as us, you are more prone to such mistakes.

It's like people that do a bit of work at home, and buy a 500 dollars drill, because they think it's the best, and use it 3 times.

I can't possibly account for all customers behaviors of course, but I have a lot of star wars fans on social medias, I can assure you that those peope bought DLC's. They didn't play much, but they bought them.

SIL3N7_ELIT3
14
1 week ago

Yeah but whales are called that for a reason. They keep the game floating financially. Some casuals (very few) will put in a decent chunk but most will drop it after a few days like you said. Some will keep with it and spend 5 bucks on microtransactions. The whales and streamers spend thousands and those are the consistent players that EA is looking for. They don't want people to buy the game and give up after a week. They want the streamers to say it is an awesome game and start unpacking lootboxes. They want the 12 year olds who watch the streamers to think the lootboxes look really cool and the game looks fun. They want those 12 year olds to play for a year and use mommy's credit cars to buy 20 lootboxes. They want that guy who sits in his basement trying to get that one ultra rare piece of loot. They don't want casuals. They want people who have a lot of time and money to burn on the game. This streamers are huge because they have a lot of time and money to devote to games and they have a following who will pretty much follow them anywhere.

Honestly I feel like following a PDX style of supporting their games could yield them some goodwill and some serious cash flow.

Release a single/multi player game. Every quarter or half, release a small expansion alongside free content, and maybe a few small cosmetic packs. Continue until the sales aren’t giving you the profit margin that you think a new game would.

So for example sake:

Say they release a completely redone version of the OT mass effect trilogy, with the best systems from the OT and andromeda, and a multiplayer mode (instead of the horde mode, I’d do like ‘N7 missions’ similar to the ME3 side stuff akin to maybe siege mode from JKII).

Every quarter/half, release a single player tie-in that integrates directly into the base game if you have it, along side a few multiplayer missions/classes/etc. expand the story and give MP missions that tie into the new story beats. Then have some cosmetic skins that you can also get for $, and a free content update that makes small tweaks to the experience for everyone even if you don’t pay (so maybe non-paying players get two new small sub quests that would intro you to the new content but don’t have the payoff but still make story sense without the dlc, some new weapons and powers integrated into the base game, etc.).

It gives old player a better reason to return and revisit the game, gives them a nudge into new content they can pay for, and keeps the game more active and in the public sphere for longer, so that when you’ve got the next chapter fleshed out and ready to go...

The campaign is great but it isn't one of the best. Its just been a LONG time between good fps campaigns.

Eh

if the story is linear and there's not much else to do outside of it then I am happy with the game taking ~6 hours or more. Less than that I don't really see a "AAA" game being able to claim a $60 price tag.

6 hours is basically the sweet spot you can see with many single player story games, The Last of Us, God of War, Uncharted Series, Horizon Zero Dawn, and many others recently - all those you cna expect Around 6 hours of play out of if you're rushing the story.

Red Dead can be quick sure but ... there's so much more Outside of the story you can do.

There is already a preorder bonus (edit: hold on thats wrong it isnt a pre order bonus they are selling 2 different versions! My bad for confusing this.) in the more expensive edition, some cosmetics afaik, so there is already a microtransaction.

Edit: I dont want to answer you all but in my opinion it is a microtransaction, again you wont get the full game more or less because they cut out a tiny bit (cosmetic, which is usually an mtx) and selling it for 10€ more.

They are even unable to sell one single product without any bullshit.

Blizzaldo

That's not a micro transaction though. That's a reward the company offered to entice people to buy the game early. There's only one transaction even though there's two payments. It's like giving out a discount for early payment.

Edit: I was saying a pre-order bonus is not a microtransaction which was what his post said before the edit.

Herlock

To be completely fair, this type of practice is an old one and rather accepted in many other industries. Remember the director's cut of DVDs? You pay $5 more and get some fun extra content. While I personally am not a fan of this as a pre-order (this is where it differs from movies as the initial release is all the same content), it's not an extension of the microtransactions model.

Alright so if I were an corporate executive looking to make the must money out of this, I would design the game to have a technically complete story, and then sell dozens of "mini DLC" that contain more adventures, other characters to play, maybe some skins or lightsaber colors.

"buy the Jedi Temple Ruins DLC with 5 new levels, and unlock a purple lightsaber,"

"Buy the Legacy of Skywalker DLC to explore the ruins of [semi significant place] and preorder to unlock Anakin's lightsaber"

"Buy Ghosts of Tatooine, and PLAY AS Obi-wan, Featuring a band now sandbox, preorder now to unlock Darth Mauls lightsaber"

"Buy the Bounty Hunter story pack which adds extra missions to the main campaign including Cameos from your favorite Star wars bounty hunters. preorder now to unlock a Mandalorian Cape."

"preorder the preorder of your preorder to unlock something that would have been a cool extra 7 years ago but we realised we can charge money for and you will buy it because it says star wars on it! SPEND YOUR MONEY ON STAR WARS YOU WHALE!"

Are you trying to tell me people are as comfortable with paying 80-100 dollars for a game as they are with paying 60?

I think mtx only for cosmetics is the best way to keep the cost of games low. You are never forced to buy them, but if you want you character to look cool or just to support the devs you can choose to pay more.

personally as long as I'm enjoying the game I'll give the game more of my money. I just don't like feeling like I'm being extorted. Pre-orders for digital goods, Loot boxes that prey on gambling, Skinner boxes designed to make me want to spend more money that's what bothers me.

Gooftwit

Yeah, that's why I was very careful with the way I worded my position. As long as it doesn't impact gameplay and you're not forced to buy lootboxes they are the best way to further monetize games that would otherwise have to be sold for around 80 dollars.

they are video games, playing them at all is optional. you can say "just dont buy them" all you want but that doesn't stop them being predatory, especially to problem gamblers, or children. micro transactions effect gameplay, they slow the game down to get you to buy them. or they give you access to special content in their better examples.

Right, and thirty years ago, how big was the gaming market? A tiny fraction of what it is now. The video game industry is bigger than the movie and music industry combined (in the UK at least). So sure, 100,000 copies of a AAA sold in 1983 would be amazing, now some individual games are making a Billion on the day of release. The price of games Janet changed but the scale of the industry is completely different.

They definitely know micro transactions are shitty and unpopular after the BF2 debacle. But they don't need to be popular for whales to buy them by the thousands and line their pockets anyways.

And if I remember correctly, the steam store page for one of Square Enix's games didn't mention it would include denuvo until the game was released.

I'm gonna stay optimistic about this and hope that this is made with redemption in mind. Making it free from all that bullshit and if they release DLC that it will be fairly priced and with good content.

After all the shit that happened I just want to believe they got their head out of their asses and want to improve their standing on the market (especially seeing how so many other companies there are to hate right now, doing something good would make people even more happy). The good PR could also help bump their stock price up again.

I just so badly want to believe that this will be a good game without all the bullshit for once.

I'm not going to pre order, because I just don't as a rule, but if I were to pre order, I'd consider it for a handful of studios, and Respawn is one of them. Yes, they're owned by EA now, and I get the EA bad circle jerk. But Respawn has a great track record, and has a history of sneaking around EA and giving them minimal oversight of their projects.

I mean, to be perfectly honest I'm not opposed to microtransactions in single player games.

Fallout shelter had them and they didn't cause the regular issues they bring since it wasn't multiplayer. According to GameSpot they even brought in 90 million.

It's gonna be something new. First it was DLC, then it was Season passes, then it was MTX, then it was cosmetic MTX then it was the game pass. I bet this one is going to need some kind of content subscription.

Ok good no micro transactions. However, do not let your taste in games be diluted with what a game should be in actuality. Continue to judge a game for its content. Don’t call it good because it’s excluding something that shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Judge it as you would any other single player game. I hope EA does well and realizes that the key to a reoccurring audience beyond diehards is reoccurring quality releases.

There is definitely something going on, anyone believing in their words are just fools, ya... there will not be loot boxes, just supply crates.

There will be no dlc, just alternative design costing money

There will be no mircotranscation just macrotranscation

Mark my words, even if it does turns out that they are right about all these at launch. Never forget Bf V when they added those in after reviews were out

JollyTurbo1

The thing is, it's a single player game. I thought loot boxes were exclusively a multiplayer thing. So really EA isn't removing loot boxes, they just can't find a way to add them to a single player game.
