News Comments > No Cross-play for Infinite Warfare or Modern Warfare Remastered

I can see Activision not allowing cross-play so that people are forced to buy multiple copies of their games if they want to play with/against others on multiple platforms. I can also see EA doing the same thing for the same reasons.

It's going to take a publisher with some guts, or an independent with some fairly deep pockets, to take a chance that cross-play will net them increased sales by capturing new customers that are willing to buy a game that they can play with all of their friends, not just ones on a particular platform.

I can see someone like CD Projekt Red doing this with a Witcher title and garnering not only a ton of goodwill from gamers, but a ton of sales, as well.

Publishers aren't THAT evil, I think. It's probably a budget-linked technical limitation or incompetence that brought them to this. I expect that this case is an exception and that crossplay(win10 x steam) will be enabled later following backlash.

Seen the gameplay vids. If this game doesn't make it to 144 frames per second on my GTX980, then it isn't optimized for PC.

Hmmmmmmm....how well do these games run on your GTX980/System: Rage, Wolfenstein: The New Order & The Old Blood, and The Evil Within?

Apparently Dishonored 2 runs off a modified version of idTech 5, so being modified I'm wondering how much more HP is now required with those modifications.

Additionally, I guess they had to switch from the Unreal Engine due to Bethesda publishing the game.

The game will run on Arkane's new internal "Void" engine, as opposed to Unreal Engine 3 that was previously used in Dishonored. The Void engine is based on id Tech 5,[nb 1] with art director Sebastien Mitton saying the team kept "[roughly] 20 percent" of the original engine.[21] Arkane removed unneeded elements from the engine like the mini open world and overhauled the graphics. The new engine is intended to improve in-game lighting and post-processing to help the game's visuals,[2] and allows the game to visualize subsurface scattering.[23]

All those games you mentioned, I hate their graphics and performance with kind of a passion. I can't and won't ever understand how those games weren't destroyed by PC gamers, although I do know Rage got a beating. Never enough, though. I was one of the very, very few people who complained about the bad Dishonored graphics. Or at least that's what it felt like.

Thanks for letting me know they use the same albeit adjusted engine. Ready to get underwhelmed.

I also don't understand why idtech gets a free pass. The engine has the worst quality textures and the worse texture streaming of all the engines.

I finished the first game, but it was definitely a bit boring in parts. It's a solid game, but there's always something preventing it from being great. I think it's because it tries to be too many things. I loved the dark magic and Cthulhu style horror theme, but it's never really explored. Get us into sunken ruins already.

bleh, too little, too late, really.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile both have way more enjoyable and complex leveling and itemization, with only slightly worse engines.

Better get to work on Diablo 4, Blizzard.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile weren't nearly as fun for me. I definitely want more Diablo. Don't care if it's an expansion or the fourth.

I've played this for a couple of hours. Absolutely no reason to get this on PC other than if you never played the game. The game barely looks better, it's hard to tell. Graphic mods will make it look much better. If you're missing DLCs, just get the individual DLCs. Also, as far as I can tell, you seem forced to use the in-game mod browser to get your mods, and it sucks. I mean, it works, but it's the worst interface of all time, which is normal coming from Beth. Also, some mods are absent, like the vital SkyUI. Not sure if it's because the mods from the ingame interface are limited(no extended scripting). Maybe you can still mod manually, I don't know... On consoles though, this version is a major upgrade in every way.

I'm definitely interested, for 10 bucks. But by that time, no one will play it anymore.

This is true for every single company that's publicly traded.

True. Let me rephrase. Whatever Microsoft is doing, you can be sure it's against the interests of users.

I never played Watch Dogs 1 because people said it wasn't very good.

Is it even worth a play through?

It's a good game. People who said it wasn't good were people who over hyped themselves. I liked it more than GTA V.

Dark messiah is at least in my top 20 of all time. Way better than Dishonored if you ask me. Great atmosphere and a genuine feeling of discovery. I also really liked the story. I replay it from time to time, but the game is starting to show its age both in graphics and mechanics.

Looks like a bad idea to me. It's too bulky/big to be a handheld and it's not powerful/different enough to replace the WiiU which wasn't very successful in the first place... Maybe they'll have more to show or the sum of it's parts is greater, but I don't see it for now.

The game was pretty fun, and this is coming from a guy who cant stand 3rd person action games. It feels like they ran out of budget though. The later part of the game kinda sucked and felt rushed. I got bored and stopped playing.

This looks really interesting. I think it's more challenging to play games like this and the DX series as non-lethal combatants. And the graphics look really nice as well. Might have to pick this one up when it comes out.

Not killing anyone is one thing, but being a ghost is even harder. Some people think that you can say you're ghosting even if you knock down guards from the back, but for others, ghosting means entering and leaving without leaving any kind of trace behind, like you were never there. This is "hella" badass.

Edit: The problem with this is that in some games(like deus ex) you get points for takedowns and you still get the "ghost" achievement if you take down undetected. So, you're actually gimping yourself if you truly ghost. I'm not too sure how it is in Dishonored.

Edit: I'm going to play this for sure, but I think it looks kinda bland and repetitive...

Completely useless. Modders have already added a thousand times more quality content than is in the base game.

Though it's high on Minecraft, the share of people who mod will always be low. It's a lot of time spent on what could end up being inferior content.

I didn't see stats for that, but you may be right. But it's incredibly easy to mod minecraft. You download a single executable that setups everything for you. It's a compilation of mod packs that follow a theme. All you have to do is press play.

Edit: I guess the update is for the console p... layers.

This game was supposed to be delivered on around Nov of 2014 2 years after it was successfully funded on Nov 2012.

That's absolutely false. I don't remember there being a release date when I backed it, but it was pretty clear that this would be a looong time in the making.

You better go and check the Kick starter page again son. It clearly states the game was to be deliver around Nov 2014.

All I can see is that the pledges would be delivered in 2014. If you thought that this would mean the final game, I think the only person you should be mad at here is yourself. Everyone knew it would take a much longer time to make the game. What did you do, back it without even looking at it? If you didn't back it, why are you complaining? I don't need you to give me investment advice. I made it 4 years ago and it's raising in value.

You are so delusional, that date is not just for the pledges, its also for the delivery of the game. Do yourself a favor and go away, if you cant see the reality of this game and whats its become then your a lost cause.

And not once did I ever tell you to not support the game, I only merely pointed out the facts, some you seem to be in denial about.

You're delusional if you think that Kickstarter dates are absolutes.
