Bear in mind Warhammer 40,000: Everlasting Campaign? Should you do not, that is comprehensible. The session-based hack-and-slash-and-shoot title from Behaviour Interactive limped by a number of years of growth earlier than lastly launching in September 2016 to a combined (placing it kindly) reception. It had a poor “free trial” mode that severely gimped free gamers earlier than lastly going absolutely free-to-play just a few months after launch.
I am selecting to attract consideration to its being a “session-based” recreation with an extended growth time as a result of it was initially slated to be a persisent, open-world recreation within the vein of PlanetSide 2. Perhaps I am nonetheless salty over the choice to alter that, however it permits me to as soon as once more elevate the query of why — practically a decade after PS2 got here out — has no person tried to breed that form of recreation?
In any case, nothing is everlasting, not even Everlasting Campaign. As Massively Opinionated noticed, the announcement of the sport’s shutdown was all the best way back in June, and it came to pass simply this previous Friday. That “WAAAAAGH!” you hear? It isn’t a battle cry, however a tragic lament from the sport’s remaining gamers.
