Well deserved, hope this helps fund the Coop patch!

Meh, I think I'm done with this franchise - even for free. I've finished four of the five previous games (excluding 2) and I get the general impression that 6 is the same old thing with a new coat of paint.

I thought the first game was just OK and the second one I have been "meh" about. But now that I know Cutter isn't going to buy it because it is "woke", I am definitely going to buy it. Might even buy a few extra copies as gifts.
I'm TRYING to get into the first game, but christ on a cracker it's boring as hell. I think I'm on my 3rd attempt and I just hate the game.
I found it to be less "give a fuck about the story" and more "how many hilarious ways can I kill zombies?" Like I said, the story is OK but it's what I can do in the game that appeals to me.
And, as stated, I pre-purchased the second and I am pre-loading it now. I would like to support as many "woke" games as possible.
I think I might pick this up because of the 4 player drop in co-op. I'm going to try to at least finish the story in Dying Light's main game.
IMO, that's the way to play these games. Play co-op with friends and complete missions. I barely pay attention to the story in most games I play because I rarely find them interesting (mostly boring). The last game I played that kept my interest (story-wise) was the original Gothic way back in 2001. 😀 I play games for a challenge, strategy, etc, not for predictable plot lines that I've seen in movies. So whether a game has a good story or not, it doesn't mean that the gameplay sucks or you can't find ways to have fun

Yeah, remember when Blizzard would take game designs and then polish them up into amazing creations w/ deep mechanics.
"Deep" mechanics in a Blizzard game? Thanks for the laugh .
As for monetization, I'd say Blizzard definitely do not need Activision or Microsoft for that. They are greedy enough all by themselves.

It looks awesome, but why on earth do they have to make the co-op system so... terrible and cumbersome.
Just let us play the game all the way through with friends if we choose.
You can do that, if you and your friends put a password into the network menu. Then you exclusively invite each other. It worked beautifully in DS3, except for the couple of areas which are single player only.
I guess the issue is that you have to repeat each level for each member of your party, so you may end up doing the same level 3 times in a row, but it gives everyone a chance to let loose, as they have virtually no consequences when in the phantom form.

BF has been shit for a long time. This is just another attempt to get some cash by selling useless shit in a free game?
