Not sure when pink became the post-apoc color of choice. Must have been around the Rage 2 reveal.

February 15.

Trying to find info on whether it has co-op, but so far failing.

New Dawn is barely a 10 hour game

CULT|sph0nz
Not surprising to hear. It's basically a stand alone expansion for FC5 for $40. Also, campaigns in CoD are about that length or less. Although for a FC title that seems pretty short..

CULT|icycalm
As I understand it, COD campaigns are heavily scripted like movies, so in that case it's okay
A 10-hour FC is essentially not a FC
Like that Blue Dragon thing
Blue something or other
Blood Dragon
At least Blood Dragon had a cool theme
This has nothing

CULT|Beakman
It has empowered black women

CULT|sph0nz
Yeah, true.

CULT|icycalm
Does it have co-op?
Those are the heroes or villains?

CULT|sph0nz
They're villians

CULT|icycalm
Empowering villains?
I don't get the woke angle, if there is any

CULT|sph0nz
The game does have co-op

CULT|icycalm
That's something at least

The commentary from Discord is spot on. It is more Far Cry 5, which isn't a bad thing (co-op included), but it feels a bit drab. The opening isn't as strong, the villains are not as menacing, and it feels like there's less going on in the world. Pre-apocalypse Hope County looked much better. The crafting system is back and expanded, but I was never a fan of it in the first place as it always turned into a dull fetch quest to get some minor upgrades. Here, the crafting seems a bit more important to progress. Pick it up if you really want to play more Far Cry 5 and, of course, make sure you have a co-op partner for the best experience.
