Babylon’s Fall PS5, PS4 console exclusivity might be one of many worst offers Sony may have struck. If the time period “useless sport” is ever added to a dictionary, Babylon’s Fall must be utilized in a sentence explaining its that means. Sounds a bit harsh, however that’s the one approach to describe a sport that fell to a whopping one “concurrent” participant on Steam final Wednesday, Might 4th, as revealed by SteamCharts (through VGC). Yikes!
Babylon’s Fall PS5 is presently the console’s worst-rated unique
Babylon’s Fall PS5 model unseated Godfall (perhaps “fall” is a cursed phrase) to turn into the console’s worst-rated unique up to now. It additionally holds the respect of being PlatinumGames’ worst-rated launch – a disgrace contemplating how gifted the studio that gave us Nier: Automata is. Regardless of its efforts to in some way breathe life into the sport, it looks like Babylon’s Fall would possibly simply be a misplaced trigger until Sq. Enix can pull off what Good day Video games did with No Man’s Sky. However contemplating that each facet of Babylon’s Fall is poorly executed, we’re not so certain that’ll work.
“No, there are not any plans to scale down improvement on Babylon’s Fall,” the event crew stated in an announcement again in March. “We’ll proceed to convey new content material to the sport and make enhancements based mostly on participant suggestions, striving to maintain current 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 major 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, Name of Responsibility: Fashionable 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.
