The net factor looks like it’ll be extra solo-friendly sooner or later.
Whereas there’s many alternative success tales on the market in gaming, tales of video games which have transcended into the tradition at giant reminiscent of Fortnite, there’s not something fairly like Grand Theft Auto 5. Throughout two console generations, and shortly to be three, the sport has remained on the highest of the charts with out even being free to play. Whereas a part of it’s the cultural love of GTA, extra might be owed to its on-line mode, which has change into a recreation in and of itself. For a lot of (and I do imply many), that’s superb and dandy. Nevertheless, for these craving a bit extra of that single participant expertise, it’s been disappointing. Nicely, you could not get what you need, nevertheless it appears Rockstar does wish to make On-line extra solo-friendly.
In a latest interview with GQ, Design Director Scott Butchard talked about GTA On-line‘s newest enlargement, The Cayo Perico Heist. It’s the largest replace to the sport to this point and one thing distinctive versus earlier updates is that it might be performed solo or multiplayer. That was a pleasing shock for a lot of, and plainly’s quite a lot of the concept going ahead. Butchard even outright says the purpose is to inject these “single-player components” into future expansions.
“It’s one thing that’s been on our minds for fairly a while and the neighborhood has been vocal about it,” Butchard mentioned. “It’s one thing we’re eager to hold ahead,” he provides. “We wish to respect groups and gamers who wish to play co-op. However on the identical time nonetheless permit solo gamers to nonetheless get simply as legitimate an expertise out of it. There’s perks to each. If you happen to go in there by your self, you’re taking 100 per cent of the reduce and it’s so much simpler to do stealth and plan once you’re not on comms. With a number of gamers you possibly can cut up up and do a number of issues directly. You’ll be able to take extra of the secondary aims, so I may ship Tarek off to the management tower to take down air defences whereas I begin looting from the wee money piles.”
There had been rumors that a few single participant expansions had been axed in favor of On-line content material final yr, and it’s clear that’s the place nearly all of the main target has been at for fairly a while with Grand Theft Auto 5. Whereas it is probably not precisely what these craving solo play need, it’s not less than an indication that you simply’ll get a bit extra content material you possibly can take pleasure in on their lonesome.
