Multiplayer removed, 100% single player focus

#1 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

This is probably best news I've heard all week. Developers decided to remove multiplayer from Metro: Last Light and channel all the resources into the single player experience (As it should be). What are your thoughts on this? Honestly, Metro: Last Light is one of the few games I'm actually looking forward to, and this is excellent news to me.

I didn't really mind the MP but this does mean more funding for the campaign!

This is the first and last I'm hearing about the MP and I'm okay with that..

I admit I kinda wanted to see it, but this really is great news.

I'll put in my obligatory "remove multiplayer from 'X' game" comment by mentioning Dragon Age 3 and feel free to insert your own snide joke about EA here as well.

Good news/great decision. Putting all their resources into the sp campaign, in this specific game's case, is as it should be.

Loved the first game so I'm really looking forward to this.

Awesome.  Spec Ops was fine without mp, but they wasted their time and added after launch. It was horrible. NOT every game needs a mp component.

This is why we can have nice things. I'll have to get on to finishing 2033, before LL comes out.

I'm totally fine with this. I don't really need another first person multiplayer shooter.

*victorious battle cries and trumpets*

The day is won.

Now, excuse me while I play 2033 for the fifth time.

Meh. I don't live under this herd mentality that multi-player is the reason single-player suffers, but a generic clone in a saturated market getting cancelled is fine.
