Sounds more like an episodic release.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

Seems more like a season pass to me, which is still just as awful.

But again I find myself going back to the same argument which is why would anyone think Square Enix are capable of this sort of thing without fucking it up. This sort of model requires a lot of good will and trust to work (even Valve ballsed it up). Some folks have got it right (Telltales etc) but those are games that rely heavily on stories and choice mechanics.

It's not out of the realms of possibility this could work, I just wouldn't trust Square Enix to do it. I could ask them to make me a cup of tea and they would hand it too another person claiming its exclusive to them and then when I ask for another they would say the first one wasn't popular enough so they won't make another.

They claim it isn't an episodic release because it isn't just about the story. As they are adding in mechanics and stuff like that I would class it more as a Early Access game. Either way I won't be buying a half finished game for £40.

To be fair to Valve they didn't at least ask you to pay all the money up front.

Either definition doesn't matter to me. This would have struggled to appear on my list to buy. But this fuckaroundery just doesn't inspire the mouse fingers to click a buy button at all.

I still can't get what this even means.

Also, having read the piece through again, I'm feeling more optimistic. It really comes down to how big the "sizeable chunk" that they initially release is and how long they continue to add new levels and features for.

There's not really enough information available yet to say for sure how it'll be, which in itself is slightly worrying as I get the feeling that they're just basically winging it.

I think we've just gotten used to leaks of everything all the time and not really having to wait for information.

Hitman closed alpha

Videos and footage of the closed alpha testing of the new, upcoming Hitman game (easily-titled simply Hitman) have been uploaded to the web by a myriad of players over the past couple of days. It goes without saying, for those who hoped IO Interactive & Square Enix would offer unto us a scorcher of a Hitman game for PC as far as performance and build, well…you might want to divert your attention away for the meantime if you’re interested in the gritty details. For everyone else, glue your eyes firmly to the following array of insightful gameplay offered up by the community.

Yeah, people complaining about lack of textures and dodgy AI? I know there is a precedent in the industry right now for releasing early access alpha builds that are essentially almost polished betas, but if something is in closed alpha what can you really expect from it.

Important point of the article was it was showing a lot of promise still.

Delayed until March 2016...

https://hitman.com/en-us/news/important-release-news

It’s safe to say Hitman is the biggest venture we’ve ever undertaken at Io-Interactive,

Not just in terms of scope and ambition but also in terms of the size of the game world itself. The playable area and density of our locations goes beyond anything we’ve built before. We’re striving to create a series of living, breathing worlds in those locations and we get pretty obsessed about every detail that you’ll experience.

On top of that, we’re going for a new release model where we put out a good chunk of the game when it begins and then release the remaining locations over time. We want to make absolutely sure you all get the best possible experience when you join, so we’ve made the difficult decision to move the initial release date to March 2016. These few extra months will mean we can add more to the launch content of the game, more than we had originally planned, and then follow with a tighter frequency of updates, which ultimately will create a better game for everyone. And in the end, that’s what we’re all looking for.
