This came out over the weekend, and it’s the new hotness for streamers and YouTube. It’s asymmetrical multiplayer. One person is Jason and six other players take the roles of prospective victims. They can band together to escape the map or kill Jason, or they can run around like chickens and die in Tom Savini approved kills.
It’s kind of janky and dumb, but the kids seem to love it.
This looks pretty fun for a laugh to watch streaming for a while, I can see why it’s taking off there, but even $20 might be pushing it unless I’m missing some depth the streamers I’ve seen haven’t tapped into.
the game’s pretty good, but it wasn’t ready for release from the technical side. They have had crippling server side issues affecting all platforms, and their matchmaking was setup in a way that wasn’t even compatible with the PS network or Live. Matchmaking on consoles will have to wait for a patch. I’ve played some private matches which work and it’s a lot of fun.
Not sure why you think 3 maps wouldn’t be enough for a type of game with this theme though.
The game’s appeal rides entirely on how entertaining people are on voice. As it goes on, the people on it just for fun drop off and you’re left with people who take it seriously, are silent, or are Chinese mic spamming awful music.
I had a fun 40 hours with it but I’m done.
Dead by Daylight is kind of the exact inverse. Much better mechanics and replayability, much MUCH worse community.
