You actually think they are implementing the Summer Beta? Smiley Indifferent


 

Anyone thinking that the BETA will be the result of 17 updates spanning over a year of the game being released is sadly mistaken.

 

Hey guys, remember how Chateau had that roof everyone could get on? Remember how Airstrip's intro froze pretty much all of the 1st day?

 

I know the Beta was fun, but reverting to a primal stage of the game's life isn't the way to go.

Yeah. This "just as bad as the beta's problems" paid game release is better.

Exactly.  Having a bigger player pool, and hopefully less lag as a result.   Is one of the main reasons for us to care about free to play MP.

 

If the DLC maps are not included, then we are going to still have two separate player pools.  DLC and nonDLC.  Instead of one large united pool to draw players from, so lag would probably be the same as it is now.  

 

Unfortunately, I don't think ND is going to include the DLC maps.

 

From last months Q&A:

 

8.  Do you plan on releasing all dlc maps for free? (Huskers1598)

 

Not at this time. It’s possible it’ll happen in the future but we are releasing all our Block Mesh Lab maps for free in the Lab playlists and will continue to do so. Block Mesh Lab maps will soon be available for longer periods of time in the future. If things change we’ll let you know.

The farther this game comes from it's release the laggier it gets.  We need a bigger player pool Smiley Mad

 

I wish ND would give the DLC for Free /or at least LOWER the price,  $20 instead of $40. Which is just plain ridiculous for DLC, I mean it's worth more than the actual game itself now...

Technically for Killzone 3's MP, the DLC maps was part of the stand-alone multiplayer game however the dlc for the retail game still had a price tag on it. There's still the possibility of ND adding the DLC onto the F2P version and I hope they did, I would be disappointed if they didn't add the DLC maps but I wouldn't be surprised.

 

We won't know until they actually announce the details of what will be included with the Free-to-play MP. If anything if they decide not to go ahead with adding the DLC maps onto the stand-alone then I would suggest they discount the maps and DLC modes on all forms of the Playstation Store so that more people buy them.

If they don't bundle the Map packs into the F2P version then they are shooting themselves in the foot, I'm going to assume the stand alone version will be between $10.99 to $14.99, no one is going to pay for the Stand alone version then go spend another $40 on DLC I'm sure ND isn't that blinded by greed to not figure this out willing to give them the benefit of the doubt even though they continue to rip off their loyal fans.

I would take the Beta with all of it's day one problems over the game we have now.  Everything about the beta was better.  The aiming, movement speed, FUN, sprint, shooting, COVER, stopping power, aim assist, grenades, and gun choice were all far and away better than what we have now.  Unfortunately the Uncharted 3 we got with the Subway beta wasn't even close to the same game anymore.  People that were ignorant in exactly what it was that made Uncharted a fantastic online experience got a hold on the game and absolutely ruined it.  Naughty Dog could have manned up and said "Whoa, you guys are right there's something really wrong with this build and we are going to fix it immediately", instead we got half a year of them drip feeding in exceedingly small fixes with Naughty Dog trying to deny that there was something seriously off with the game. 

 

Honestly to be fair I don't believe it to be entirely their fault, as I'm sure Sony was pushing them very hard to release before Christmas.  Unfortunately for us we received an unfinished mess that we are still dealing with over a year out.  So yeah, I'd much rather have the summer beta back.

Why would you pay £40 to buy the DLC from the store when you can buy the the GOTY version from amazon for £18.97 that comes with all the DLC map packs,
