The remake of the XIII on the PlayStation 4 came out very quietly on the PlayStation 4 last week, and if it is said to have been met with a huge amount of negatives, it would probably be an understatement. The classic comic book style in art is nowhere to be seen, instead it looks like Fortnite theft, and bugs and bugs torment the experience from day one. Publisher Microids has now responded to strong criticism with a post on its official website, but the team seems to have completely missed the point.
It reads: “First and foremost, we would like to make the most sincere apologies for the game̵
Yes, these technical issues need to be fixed as soon as possible, but this is not the biggest problem in the remake – it is the complete lack of stylized style of the original. The statement does not mention the shortcoming at all, which suggests that it will not be changed after launch. Microids goes on to mention that a detailed roadmap is forthcoming that will highlight free updates that include “new levels, weapons, skins, and local multiplayer modes.” Again, there is no mention of art style fans hoping to get a new life in 2020.
It seems that the visual effects of this bad XII remake for PS4 are here to stay then. What do you think of Microids’ response? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
