Online Component in ZWEI?

Postby Rikitatsu » Nov 13, 2012 4:47 am

One of the staffers at Tango, was (as I vaguely recall) a Server Technician of some sort, and the recent job listing for a network programmer for " real time gameplay".

This points to the game having an online component, now whether its plain Multiplayer Deathmatches or its a new innovative incorporation of online features like Demon/Dark Souls is unknown.

If it is something like Co-op, that will rustle my jimmies severely... Co-op never goes hand in hand Horror, and it just hampers a lot of the gameplay experience and the sense of isolation...

If done correctly I'd stomach it, but preferably would like a single player experience.

The way I see it when it comes down to horror, if it's online it has to be an online game from the ground up, it can not be tacked on. Best example being Biohazard Outbreak which still retained so much atmosphere and never once sold out.

i rather Single Player only, but i think it will be MP; i remember they saying they are recruiting some talents, and it suggest you a MP.

amazing Games like Alan Wake, Metro 2033 and the incoming Metro Last Light work amazingly on SP.

im following the new game War Z, but i think it will not work, so much hackers and people killing people; and an online campaign would not work at a survival horror, everyone has its own rythm.

I'm honestly just sick of the attitude that "everything needs some kind of multiplayer tacked on or else it sucks". I'm hoping Zwei is purely single player but if it HAS to have some sort of multi, I hope it'll be integrated well. I'd like something akin to the old Outbreak games but those were obviously designed for that from the ground up.

As long as it doesn't take away from the experience, then I don't mind it I guess.

I wouldn't mind a mode that was a spin off to the actual game, like the resident evil mercenaries is. I just think the game will be a lot more succesfull if one online mode is added. just no co-op.

Mikami has never done a game with online so I don´t think this will be the first one. On the other side I remember that people were complaining about Vanquish not having any online multiplayer so he might have taken that into account.

I thought they said there was going to be no multiplayer in TEW so maybe its just leaderboards or something. Or, hopefully, the job listing is for a completely different game.

EDIT: didn't realize how old this topic is :P

Yep, its old. And its been confirmed that there is no Multiplayer of any kind of the game, its 100% single-player. It's a lesson to not look too much into old job listings. :P

Knowing that, this thread becomes useless and won't bear any fruitful discussion or speculation. So I'm gonna lock this thread to avoid confusion.
