Uru Not Live Yet

The Uru: Ages Beyond Myst Website has word that although the new Myst game is now available in stores, the online "live" component of the game will not go live today as planned, but rather is delayed until sometime next week (thanks Kawartha). Here's the deal:
The Uru Live Prologue has been changed to begin early next week, instead of today. The change was made to allow more Uru preorders to reach the fans, and to give people a chance to enjoy Uru: Ages Beyond Myst. The Uru Live team will take advantage of the time to ensure caverns are ready for groups of new explorers. Explorers are encouraged to do as much as they can this weekend to get their systems working well, in preparation for next week's entrance into D'ni. Be sure to watch your email for the invitation from Zandi! Hope to see you all there!

PR statement says its not finished. Not necessarily that it doesnt work, or isnt playable or whatever, but that theyre not sure its ready - i.e. not finished. Sounds like its no biggy*, and the PR statement makes a bit of a meal of it. if its literally a case of making sure everyone gets evens oppertunity in the MMO and hey why not check for perfections in the mean time, great etc though I do know some people who take some of their holiday for this sort of thing, and theyre going to be dissapointed.

* Thanks to Jensen, Daedalus and esp. Alan Willard.


Jumping on the troll hunt bandwagon just because someone says something you dislike makes it apparent you have nothing relevant to counter it with, and in much the same vein as making reference to Nazis, you hence automatically lose.

Just to clarify:

Uru: Ages Beyond Myst is 2 games. One, Uru, is a single player experience, no online required. Doesn't even require you to use the enclosed CD-Key.

The second, Uru Live, is a MMO game, with a primarily exploration / social focus. Uru Live is what has been delayed. It DOES require the CD-Key to create a unique account, which at some future time will be a billed service, though from their own descriptions that won't be until sometime early next year. THIS is what has been delayed. The game shipped to stores on time, the single player works exactly as described, but you can't access the massively multiplayer section of the game yet.

Hope this helps

Don't you know?
You can only kill a troll with fire or acid.

Or by tinning it (even more obsure reference).

The volley of buckshot catches the Troll in the leg, sending him to the floor.

Bunko places the old double barreled shotgun to the Troll's stomach. The Troll glances about nervously. His eyes go to the keyboard. Bunko stares him down. "I know what you're thinking." Bunko says. "Did he fire both barrels or just one? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But this being a 12 gauge shotgun, pressed against your soft underbelly, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?" Bunko stares.

"Well, do ya punk?"

The Troll dodges in the direction of the keyboard.

*WHA-BOOM*

The Troll slumps to the ground, the wall behind him stained crimson. The empty shotgun hangs loosely at Bunko's side, a wisp of gunsmoke curling out.

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22

There's always a few. Why not explain why you don't like the game and stop trying to just be funny?

I will know when the online portion is ready because there will be blissful screaming from the girls!

don't be scared dear, nothing interesting happens in this game - have fun! but dad, I want to play the sims again! No, not until you've become bored out of your skull with Uhu.

Actually, this is the real reason for the slippage. I was on Uru Live last sunday... and the servers have been up every day since 10 months ago when the beta started. URU live is still in beta, so access to it will be at no additional charge for a couple of months. The boxed game has a full single player game included.

Ubisoft had troubles shipping Uru on time with the free DVD edition of the original trilogy -- the second arrived late to their warehouses, delaying the preorder deal (uru+DVDed) shipments. Monday isn't too long to wait

The game is done and ready to go online (The Prologue, Live officially starts early next year hopefully) -- its just that everyone who preordered from Ubi hasn't recieved it yet, so they want to be fair.

He didn't say it wasn't done. He said he wanted more people to buy it first.

I'm gonna buy it just so I can get an email from Zandi...

that has to be the stupidest pretence yet for a slippage, and quite possibly the stupidest slippage - since it manages to come after the game is on shelves. I'm already tired of day one patches, this is just silly. Guys, you need to finish making the product before you can sell it. I.e.:

FINISH MAKING IT -> SELL IT

or

1. Finish making it
2. Sell it

OK?
