- Future 2 held its first stay group occasion earlier this month.
- It’s potential we’ll see two factions type throughout the recreation.
- That sounds oddly acquainted… and it’s not the one uncanny similarity.
Earlier this month, Future 2 debuted its very first Fortnite-style live community event. And the final response to it was… meh.
Nonetheless, this was one thing that Bungie has been desirous to do with the sport for some time, and it was good to see it occur. It’s an excellent begin that the builders can construct on.
However the studio wasn’t accomplished grabbing parts from different video games. As a result of after cribbing from Fortnite, they copied a couple of concepts from a distinct – however simply as in style – on-line multiplayer recreation: World of Warcraft.
For the Horde… er, Mild!
Paul Tassi over at Forbes recently published an insightful column concerning the present and (presumably) upcoming modifications to Future 2 as the sport begins to guide into its subsequent enlargement, Past Mild.
Future’s final villains, the Darkness, have been teased for the reason that very first recreation – and so they’re lastly exhibiting up. Tassi appears to really feel like we’re going to see a cut up between characters, very similar to WoW’s Horde/Alliance schism.
That is beginning to really feel like a pattern.
Certain, should you’re going to borrow parts from different video games, you could possibly do loads worse than Fortnite or WoW.
And it’s laborious to fault Bungie for making modifications that they really feel their participant base goes to take pleasure in. As a reasonably common Future 2 participant, I can’t say the chances don’t intrigue me.
Alternatively, I used to be initially drawn to the sport within the first place as a result of I had by no means performed something prefer it earlier than. Not as a result of I wanted extra Fortnite and World of Warcraft in my life.
I’m Apprehensive Future 2 Is Making a Massive Mistake
When Bungie cut up from Activision and commenced controlling and publishing Future 2 on their very own, followers like me have been excited on the potentialities.
With out an enormous company behemoth to reply to, we figured that Bungie would take some large dangers and check out new issues. Making the bottom recreation – now known as “New Mild” – free to play was a really good start.
Because it stands, although, contemplate me involved.
Name me an alarmist if you need. However I’m prepared to guess I converse for loads of longtime followers after I say that we don’t wish to play one other Fortnite/WoW rip-off.
We wish to play Future 2.
