Babylon’s Fall, the live-service flop developed by Platinum Video games and printed by Sq. Enix, is seemingly not going to be deserted so that everybody concerned can transfer on to do one thing extra worthwhile with their lives. In line with a assertion from the Babylon’s Fall improvement group, Babylon’s Fall will proceed to be supported.
“Is the persevering with service at risk?” the assertion asks. “No, there are not any plans to cut back the dimensions of improvement on Babylon’s Fall. Content material as much as the tip of Season 2 is now virtually full and we’ve began work on Season three and past.”
Thank goodness for that, as a result of who does not love “content material”? In line with a abstract of a current dev livestream, as a part of a large-scale replace on March 22, Babylon’s Fall will probably be getting a brand new chapter, map, faction, and weapon sort, an elevated degree cap, a game mode known as Gauntlet, and extra. On March 29 a restricted time occasion will start, in collaboration with Nier: Automata, the game that is attracted two fairly disparate teams of followers—people who find themselves tremendous into philosophy, and sexy weirdos.
The assertion goes on to notice that, “We are going to proceed to offer new content material for the game and make enhancements primarily based on Player suggestions, striving to maintain current gamers taking part in and to draw newcomers. We want to thank all sentinels already having fun with the world of Babylon’s Fall, as we stay up for welcoming extra of you sooner or later!”
Our reviewer Anne-Marie Coyle wasn’t notably obsessed with Babylon’s Fall, seeing it as a low level for Platinum Video games, who beforehand developed Bayonetta, Vanquish, and Steel Gear Rising: Revengeance. Anne-Marie summed it up by saying, “Removed from the constantly exhilarating high-octane fight, distinctive characters, and engaging worlds that the studio is synonymous with crafting, Babylon’s Fall crumbles below the load of bland design, repetitive gameplay and prioritisation of paywalls over gamers.”
