Yep, probably going to buy this. :\

"Shield pack containing 3 in-game shields".

Smells like micro-transaction mayhem to me.
Sounds like skins, which won't be a surprise. That said, I'll be more than a little pissed if there are Kratos skins that can only be bought and not earned.

The date is interesting. Also I'm already sold on the CE.
Them Shields on a GOW, maybe it really is going to be a light version of a souls game o_O

I wouldn't mind paying $0.99 to instantly recharge/replace my shield instead of waiting 24 hours/finding a new one
/s


I can accept DLC items, and I suppose I've grown complacent with retailer exclusive shit, but if it has actual intrusive microtransactions I would have a hard time looking past that

Don't know about January 18, but it is in the same ballpark release period as Gravity Rush 2 was this year.

So don't rule it out for a January release, albeit this is obviously a bigger release for Sony than Gravity Rush 2 ever was.

Howd u come to that conclusion?
Looking at The Last of Us, God of War Ascension and Uncharted 4 DLCs, I say the trend is very structured.

Though most DLCs for Ascension were for online mode, it's fun to revisit it and imagine it applying to this game.

Cloth Map? Would that mean that GoW is at least somewhat open-worldish and not just "go down a hallway and kill everything" like the GoW of yore?

(this might be old info, haven't been following this game too closely)

That isn't good evidence.

Yeah, it is more open but it isn't fully open world.
