Babylon’s Fall PS5, PS4 console exclusivity might be one of many worst offers Sony might have struck. If the time period “useless recreation” is ever added to a dictionary, Babylon’s Fall ought to be utilized in a sentence explaining its which means. Sounds a bit harsh, however that’s the one method to describe a recreation that fell to a whopping one “concurrent” participant on Steam final Wednesday, Might 4th, as revealed by SteamCharts (by way of VGC). Yikes!
Babylon’s Fall PS5 is at present the console’s worst-rated unique
Babylon’s Fall PS5 model unseated Godfall (possibly “fall” is a cursed phrase) to turn out to be the console’s worst-rated unique to this point. It additionally holds the glory of being PlatinumGames’ worst-rated launch – a disgrace contemplating how proficient the studio that gave us Nier: Automata is. Regardless of its efforts to by some means breathe life into the sport, it looks as if Babylon’s Fall may simply be a misplaced trigger except Sq. Enix can pull off what Hi there Video games did with No Man’s Sky. However contemplating that each side of Babylon’s Fall is poorly executed, we’re not so certain that’ll work.
“No, there aren’t any plans to scale down growth on Babylon’s Fall,” the event group mentioned in an announcement again in March. “We’ll proceed to deliver new content material to the sport and make enhancements primarily based on participant suggestions, striving to maintain present gamers and appeal to newcomers.”
Whereas we don’t have entry to PS5 and PS4 participant knowledge, it’s extremely unlikely that Babylon’s Fall has a big participant base on console. It’s most likely solely a matter of time earlier than Sq. Enix pulls the plug however for PlatinumGames’ sake, issues will hopefully enhance. Maybe, releasing the sport on Xbox Sport Cross will assist.
In different information, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will reportedly be revealed in early June, and the current Xbox outage has gamers praising PlayStation for not requiring annoying DRM check-ins for single-player video games.
