You’re probably right, but personally, I’d like nothing to do with the end game. There’s not much there that I’m into, and I literally don’t know what to make of it.
The game is marketed as this sort of Mad Max video game (The trailers for this game and Fury Road are almost indistinguishable), but their sprawling nonsensical early development of this game has led to a pretty twisted and nonsensical tech-tree to climb, and a rather bizarre vision of the Apocalypse that looks hard to market, and overall it isn’t generally very popular. I mean how would you even describe what is going on?
They don’t. They sell it as one thing, but it performs like another. If they sold it the way it performs, they would have sideways-hover packs with spaced armor, and at least one premium shotgun wedge pack, but they don’t because people would look at that and go, “WTF is that?” All you could say is…IDK?
But you’re right, I do think a lot of people start playing this game, and for whatever reason, want to have it all right away, and then they look at how long and jagged that road is, how bad the game-play is (wonky matchmaking, exploits), how unreliable the investments are (they routinely nerf your purchases) and…well you can read about it until you’re sick anywhere this game is reviewed.
It appears now that their development team has taken off in a new direction too, with this new overhaul of the co-driver system. I would suspect that it is going to further increase the radically sprawling and increasingly nonsensical architecture of this game, but we’ll see.
To me it looks like they just make this stuff up as they go along and lack proper direction, and don’t outline their plans very well. It’s hard to guess what their vision for this game is, or if they have one, and why are we still experimenting with stuff like we are still in an open beta test. Other games just add features, this game changes the basic mechanics routinely.
Anyway, that’s my rant, about what I think needs to improve. But, if I was to advocate for development in an area, it would be Adventure mode. That mode could be so very much more, IMO.
Also, the entire crafting tree, fusion, and all the factions, and their faction builds need to be schit-canned and rebuilt from the ground up with a more logical and well planned out format.
