    The trailer looks like hella fun in a "this is ridiculous why is that whale and that giant hammerhead teaming up on my poor ship" kind of way. 

    That sounds really fun.

    It would be cool if devs made a really good pve experience, even one that wasnt really deep story wise but hooked you with combat mechanics then slowly added pvp into it.
    Yea, the trailer did a great job of making it seem like you would stumble into a Moby Dick-style epic adventure at sea no matter which way you headed.

    If they can actually pull that off, and keep the servers stable and the build mostly bug-free, this looks like a great time.  However, Wildcard has to prove they can pull it together without server or stability issues.  Oh, and it'd be nice if it didn't run like molasses on all but the most powerfully cutting edge rigs today. :D

    lol it wouldnt be good idea to have 3 min gameplay in couple of days when game itself going to release in  couple of days though lol
    but for people like me who dont buy it on launch day it will good to see some gameplay

    Well a 3 minute game play video will be nice to see,especially if like he says "goes into detail".
    I feel the biggest ting we see is the graphics will be lower than the videos show us.
    For me,what i see ruining this game is pvp,there is NO WAY a small group of friends can compete versus a guild walking around with 50-100 players ravaging the land.PVP always ruins mmo's something devs have not understood to this day.

    Pvp works in a arena shooters because that is the only thing expected to do the only reason to play,so everyone is on the same page.

    This video is important because simply adopting,modding an already done game engine is MUCH easier and saves time.However is this just going to be a pvp playground,will there actually be some really good content/event type ideas?

    I'm not planning on it, but I've heard that this game sounds like what Sea of Thieves wanted to be.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Can someone explain how the modded worlds fit into the main world? Or are they effectively separate games?

    I'm still trying to figure out what an "old school mmorpg player" might be.
    It seems to impart some credibility in regard to being "hardcore", whatever that may be.

    The "hardcore" phrase is also kind of humorous as it is impossible for a game to be "hardcore".
    It is like saying, "I played a hardcore game of hopscotch today."

    Ya'll gaming nerds... own it already.

    Yeah man! It will be my first survival game, never showed interest in survival games before. But I read about the little things that are already known about Atlas today and I have no other games to play so I'm giving it a try. It intrigued me the whole day, I feel like this comes pretty close to sandbox style full loot MMORPG, perhaps with limited amount of RP. I went looking around what survival games essentially are but it seems like there's no clear definition. Survival games are different one from another as well.
    Is this what survival games are? What sandbox full loot MMO's used to be?

    I recommend you play a modern survival game and see first whether you like the design. 

    I'm playing one now and it clearly is different and not necessarily in the good way.

    No survival games are much more tedious.  It introduces a ton of elements you might think is fun but really becomes annoying such as starvation or exhaustion.

    Even with that the only one I have liked is Conan Exiles.  I recommend you try something that has been released vs a game in early access or it might leave a bad taste.

    From what the trailer vid show , it wasn't good enough . Short fun ride , maybe , but not long investment .
    If you go off the trailer, than yeah. If you do some actual research there is plenty of info out there. They are talking about dying of old age, mating, offspring, owning land ect.  Granted it is EA so take it all with a grain of salt, but the direction they want to go is impressive to say the least. Watch the video below as it will save you the headache of having to dig for all the info yourself.

    Sure it's different and it has different elements. But it's kind of in the same spirit right? More similarities than differences? At least this one in specific based on what we know?
    Maybe most other survival games don't support thousands of players online which instantly kills the essential MMO part.

    this is by ark developers, insta no buy from me, at least until it leaves early access and is optimized ( both will probably never happen ). Maybe if there are private servers so you dont have to deal with the cesspool of players that usually inhabit these "survival" games :D 
  • DibdabsDibdabs Member RarePosts: 2,840
    I'm on the fence with this one.  Not a fan of pirate games, but at least there are NPC crew, which means not having to bother with player crew members.  If it's like Eve Online but with sailing ships I might go for it.

    None of that matters if the survival mechanics are overly onerous to the point of forcing a player to spend too much of their time on tedious,  unfun activities.

    In my case, FO76, a "light" survival game is teetering right on edge for me in terms of this; only because I'm a Fallout fan am I really willing to stick with it for now.

    Read my poll / thread here on the subject for more insight on the issue I  and others have with it.

    If it ever gets released... I'll play it.

    The fact that they push back instead of rushing is kinda comforting. It means they want to make a good first impression, and not put players in an unplayable buggy mess. That's important.

    Depends if it will ever get released this year. I think if it has another delay they better just delay till next year and also inform us BEFORE the set date/time runs out
