Anyone seen this?

Ubisoft did a survey among players

On how to "fix" the game. Apparently the most requested features were:
  • AI Team mates
  • remove tiered loot and gear score
  • better enemy AI
  • remove online requirement for solo play
  • fix vehicle handling
  • survivel elements that actually matter
They also polled what additional content players wanted, and more campaign content won by a landslide.

If they go trough with everything the game might actually be worth having, a year or so later. Since I liked Narco Road, I'd be fine without the ai team if they did the rest well.
They'll give us bullet point 1 and 4 at best. AI team mates are coming, just later due to the big backlash. Online requirement may go to try and grab a few offline players when the game is old. Don't see them changing the rest.

Ubi is taking the game back to the drawing board and rebuilding it from scratch, basically (FFXIV style). I'll probably just ignore it for a year or two to see what comes of it.

What is the point? Why penny pinch and rush out a game in the first place and you think you will throw a ton of money afterwards to fix it? Game will be dead if it isn't already. People would of long moved on by then. Should just learn from it out the money towards a new project. Fuck this gaming as a service crap. First impression means a lot and if you release a buggy POS game then chances of recovering or people waiting for you to fix it is slim. How is it working out for Anthem and fallout 76? They are the butt of all jokes the past year. No significant progress has been made on either games. It even regressed in Fallout 76 case.

Holy shit, I think I've seen you complain in literally every thread.

This is probably the cleanest and easiest answer. There is only so much that can be done post release for any title.

It's a shame. This game simply needed a few more months in the cooker and I think it would have been better all the way around. Developers need to stop rushing these titles to meet a deadline come hell or high water.

The setting of this game isn't as grand as Bolivia was that place had life this setting just seems fake unless it's because I'm skipping over everything with a Helicopter.

I agree. I wonder though if it was more of a publisher pushing them? It happens a lot in the industry.

It was quite the opposite for me. I played the shit out of Wildlands. I played Breakpoint a lot initially, but got bored of it quickly. I never bothered to finish the main campaign and running around isn't nearly as much fun in this game.

My biggest gripe right now with the game is the scope bug. I'll be playing for a bit with sniper rifle and then it wont let you use the scope zoomed in. Stuck in a third person perspective only which makes it completely unusable. Only way to clear it is log out to desktop and then log back in. Sucks when it happens right in the middle of a mission and that's usually when it happens. The thing about these bugs is that they are clearly evident if you spend a little time playing. So somebody def made the concious decision to push it out unfinished bugs and all. The head developer is obviously at fault but there was probably a good chance the publisher was breathing down his neck as well I imagine or why do it? Fix the bugs and it would be a pretty good game.

He's right though. Open world games are getting frustratingly lazy these days, and Ubisoft is one of the largest offenders. All that seems to happen anymore is build a big game world and throw in some half-assed RPG mechanics and call it a game. Breakpoint exemplifies this perfectly, as does the last Far Cry game (and to a lesser extent FC5 and the last Assassins Creed). These games are the result of trying to milk a franchise for everything it's worth with annual releases. They are boiled down to their most basic components and rushed out the door with a lot of marketing buzzwords to make you think you are getting a real RPG. Compare to games that actually had effort put into them, like Witcher 3. Nearly 5 years old now, still selling, still being played, still relevant, still a benchmark for quality. You can be certain Cyberpunk will be the same, because CDPR seems to genuinely care about their craft, not just their bottom line.

I eagerly await the day Ubisoft's model collapses upon them, and they try their hand at making good games again. They have money, they have talent, and they have some very good IPs. An Assassins Creed game with the thoroughness and care of TW3 could be an absolute masterpiece. I hope some day I get to see it.

Not as Epic as the Predator =)
I mean the Predator had that music going for it
No idea what the requirements are for starting this added content was wondering what that big patch was for the other day.

After you complete the first major mission and gain access to the hidden base in Erewhon, you'll be able to access the event by talking to Maria. She wants you to rescue a woman who successfully fought drones and is no longer a prisoner of Sentinel forces. Once you find this woman, she claims that she's from the future and must develop a special weapon to stop an army of T-800s — who were sent back in time to wipe out everyone on the island.

Update: Patch is about 21 gigs damn was going to play it right away guess I have to wait.

The predator mission was stupid. This is equally stupid. Wildlands and Breakpoint are an embarrassment to the Ghost Recon franchise. Sorry if I sound bitter, but Ubisoft has ruined so many once great franchises. It makes me grumpy.

DLC is awesome just as good as the Predator DLC maybe not as intense. Not even sure if quest is finished it think it's on for a few months.

Armor is exposed after you throw a few gernades at him or get him with the future plama rifle.

So they have been working on this gimmick, instead of getting the game in shape?

From being a squad based tactical shooter to a game with... Terminators and Predators. A good Terminator and Predator game would be nice though.

According to all sources terminator resistance is pretty good for a non-AAA title.

Believe it or not its my first Ghost Recon game I have ever played. I like it a lot except for the bugs. If they would fix them it'd be a pretty decent game. The game just isn't polished enough. They pushed it out too soon. Publisher probably forced them. Not a good excuse but its all too common in games last 10 years or so.

What? Ubisoft is Ubisoft, they are self published. If the "the publisher forced us" excuse ever doesn't work it is in this case.

If you never played any game just play wildlands instead, it is the same basic concept sans the RPG bullshit and with an actually living world instead of a lifeless wasteland with random enemy spawns.

I played Wildlands and liked it. I got this free with either a CPU or video card and I have to uninstall it and reinstall it or else it will just crash on start occasionally. No idea what the problem is. Just started when I swapped out my 3800x for a 3600x.

At this rate, I might try the Division 2 since it's $3 right now.

Try verifying the files if you haven't yet. That was what fixed it for me.
Yeah, I tried that. It's just a strange issue. I tried running other games and they work so it isn't a video card issue. Might have to memtest my RAM just to double check something didn't get screwed up when I swapped in the different CPU.
