RE: This game is a potential PVE gold mine
Thanks everyone for weighing in! Obviously I disagree with a lot of the analysis here, but that's what discussions are for. I'm not sure that I always understand the viewpoint of everyone here, but there's a few points that people are making that I'd like to address.
First, a few people seem to have the assumption that PVE'ers are looking mostly for dev created content, as well as raids and dungeons. I couldn't disagree more. I know that I am utterly sick of dev created content, and am REALLY looking forward to exploring, crafting, etc. in a world where I'm not on rails. I've been wanting to play a sandbox for a long time, but every single developer except this one apparently thinks that only PVP'ers want a sandbox. I LOATHE being attacked and interrupted when I'm trying to accomplish something in game, so I've simply avoided those game.
@TheRippyOne I'm not sure what you mean by "it would become safer to denude your town of defenders to go reave someone else's place for a bit." If you're in the safe zone in Arboreus, you won't need defenders because no one can attack. And you can't raid or siege on Arboreus at all. Sieges don't exist at all on Arboreus, and no one can raid you in the safe zone. Did you mean go off-world to siege or raid? I guess you could do that to an evil town in Syndesia, but I doubt many Beastmen will be doing that.
@Gothix I think you are 100% correct. In fact, if I found a demon trying to madly gather resources on Arboreus, I'd gladly show him/her where they were. Stuff is going to be abundant on Arboreus, so why not?
@Target The stuff you find boring, I love to do. I doubt I'm the only one. Have you checked out the popularity of games like Stardew Valley? The thing that will make it interesting is town and guild interactions and player-made content, such as events and celebrations. Granted, if there is no way to make your town have it's own unique "flavor", then it might get boring after a while.
This game is a potential PVE gold mine
I looked a long, long time for a new game that felt PVE friendly after getting bored with D3:ROS. Every single game coming out with a PVE component seemed to fall into one of the following groups:
- Yet Another Theme Park
- A Brad McQuaid inspired "You Need a 20-Man Group to go Pick Flowers"
- Another ARPG
- Yeah, We've got PVE in our game. You'll have to put up with being attacked constantly in our OWPVP environment.
I was overjoyed to find Fractured since I'll FINALLY have a PVE experience in a completely different type of game...a PVE experience that won't involve being constantly attacked while I'm trying to explore and gather. I am positive that I'm not the only one out there that has been dying to find a good PVE experience in a game that isn't just a clone. One in which it's easy to PVP by going to other worlds, but in which PVP is completely my choice.
Let's face it:
- Syndesia will be competing with Ashes of Creation for players
- Tartaros will be competing with Crowfall for players
- Arboreus will be competing with ...... no one.
Unless the new Diablo projects are something completely different than anyone is expecting, Fractured will be the only MMO releasing in the next few years that is both completely different and has a dedicated PVE environment.
I hope the word gets out. I really expect a LOT of completely bored PVE players to come out of the woodwork if it does.
RE: Multiple Diablo Projects
WoW is still going strong despite the age of the game, so I highly doubt it that they put up a MMORPG.
Looking at the line-up of games, they have the MMORPG, ARPG, CCG, Moba, Team based shooter and also have the Warframe kind of co-op game in the form of Destiny2, even though it's not a Blizzard game.
What they don't have yet is something like MHW, a survival sandbox or a battle royal type of games.
Survival sandbox and battle royal games could fall under the MMO name and I would personally think it would be something more in this direction.
But all we can do is hope we will hear something cool about this at the next Blizzcon.
Actually, they also don't have a building game, a la Minecraft. Some kind of content creator, such as Neverwinter has with the Foundry, might be really cool.
