Latest announcement by King is a branding campaing dressed as call for playtest.
I mean, how cool is that? I really believe that Twisted Metal had to be revived somehow. And it seems that now there is a good opportunity for that.
The visual promise has high quality. The question as always will be “will my phone support that?”. I still remember the 15 GB of Diablo Immortal, that I had to uninstall immediately sadly.
The game will be PvP, so that I guess the main monetization driver will be cosmetics and seasons. I love PvP games, I believe that there are huge opportunities there. I also believe that nowadays you cannot afford to develop a pvp game only for mobile phone.
Nowadays there is the game. And the game should be accessible from everywhere. So that I am waiting for PC and Console versions. I am an old gamer, so that I hate virtual pads!
Why I believe that this will probably work?
- I believe that multiplayer competitive games (if well made, of course) are the ones with the best retention
- I believe that King has contacts with the gatekeepers (Apple and Google) and can easily be featured on their stores
- I believe a game like this is really loved internally. And when the teams love something, that something has more success chances.
