    To be very clear, this is just a hypothetical topic. We don't actually think or expect games like Evolve, Lawbreakers or Battleborn will see a re-release on game pass. We're just using those games as examples of how game pass COULD be used to provide games that fail to find an audience out of the gate a second chance. Having more time to raise an audience that would support the continued development of these titles, with minimal investment from the players, to reach their potential before being dumped off by publishers as a "failure"

      So Evolve is coming to game pass, gotcha. How do you manage to get these blazing hot scoops? Seriously though: I'd be very interested to learn about remastering and/or how much work has to go into re-releasing something on a newer platform. Not the sexiest of topics, I know, but if you ever get a chance to do something like that, know, that you'd have at least an audience of one... :)

    I would love the evolve ultimate edition (which honestly should have just been the base edition due to all the DLC characters/monsters being important to lore) on a game pass, thats enough for me to snap one up.

    Don't tease me with Lawbreakers. That's in my top 5 most played games on Steam. It was seriously excellent, but their marketing was absolutely awful and cringe. Pushed some "ARE YOU FUCKIN' PRO ENOUGH FOR LAWBREAKERS?!?!?!" angle that everyone hated, so it hardly ever got a chance.

    They could rotate the competing multiplayer games to consolidate the playerbase. Sync it with the development cycle so that whenever the game comes back "on", it has new and fresh content. From there scale up if the players like it.

    I liked this discussion on gamepass especially since I hadn't thought of using the service in this way and to tell the truth it intrigues me a ton I really like the idea of reviving old games using game pass as an older fellow who doesn't feel like the younger guys know enough about our rich history when it comes to gaming

    A couple things about Atomicrops: You CAN extend the timer a bit through different in game modifiers like mushrooms and such. Also it's definitely a roguelite, but it's very difficult at first to get currency to buy permanent upgrades. I struggled a lot with the time constraints but did eventually manage to figure out how to grow massive farms and beat the game a couple times and unlock harder difficulties. It's definitely a bit too stressful for me though so I haven't played it in a while for that reason.

    I played Evolve when it was f2p for about 20 hours. I then became pretty repetitive by not getting more content... They could have developed a small singleplayer campaing to make the lore more interesting, this would have raised the popularity among sp-gamers.

    Answering Nick's question: the difference is - rogue-LIKE is a "game like Rogue" (it's in the fucking name, people! Ffs...), aka a turn-based top-down grid-based RPG with complex interactions between systems and procedurally generated levels, oh and once your character dies - they stay dead and you start the game as a new character with lv1 and starting gear. A rogue-LITE is a game of any genre that has procedural generation and loss of progress on death. Basically the difference between a "doom-clone" and "first person shooter" - one describes a game that is so "inspired" by another one it borders on a rip-off, the other describes an entire genre with one common aspect to it.

    The first issue that comes to mind would be the cases where the studio no longer exists (Boss Key / LawBreakers), making the business arrangement and support problematic.

      @hughJ Its like anything else, they can make a better process...but don';t want to and don' have to because a few excessive own the market. Top heavy systems are inherently clumsy. Its odd how in the information age IP rights has become a threat to trade and liberty.....

      ​@Zippy Dastrange They'd have licensed the engine to create the game and publish+sell the compiled binaries, but that's a different thing from having a license to release the uncompiled source. Heck, in many cases even the licensees may never have had access to the full source for the creation of the game, as was common with Unity up until a few years ago. Carmack has talked about the work he had to do in order to open source the IdTech engines. Refactoring, cleanup, documentation. IP that wasn't owned by them (IdTech4's shadow volume algorithm, for example) had to get reimplemented and their legal department had to signoff on everything before publishing. With more modern games a comprehensive legal liability audit gets significantly more complex because the games themselves are more complex. Even things like art assets may be licensed from marketplaces which carry their own terms for use (Quixel Megascans would be a good example).

      @hughJ THey'd still have to license it to publish it tho. Middleware also can be more or less self contianed, so you don;t have access to it, Unreal torny 3 had alot of silly hard code that you could not fiddle with. It can be done, its not that hard but like anything else thats good for anything but short term gain they will never do it....

    • hughJ

      Easier said than done if it's running on a licensed engine and is using third-party middleware. Anything they don't own would have to get stripped out of the source release.

    One of the major problems that Evolve had that killed it was how the devs focused on the competitive scene over the "casual" fanbase. All balances began to rely more and more on the Hunters working together, so all the good players started playing strictly as Monsters and unbalancing the game. I may actually have to do a video about this...

    • hughJ

      Yeah, I think multiplayer games lately tend to chase the esport/competitive scene too much when they really should be focused on growing the grassroots/casual audience. If the game is fun to play and has enough influx of new players then you'll naturally see a competitive community form on its own with little to no involvement by the developer. Street Fighter 2, Quake, Starcraft, CS, WC3-Dota, etc were the most popular games of their time because the games were genre defining and all stripes of players wanted to play.

    Team games that are dead are usually dead because they had some massive issue. Evolve was overmonetizing and selling the end game monster as an edition, literally pay to win. Predator hunting grounds, and previous team games by the same company, were buggy as fuck and again monetized up the wazoo. Removing the need for everyone to buy a copy removes some issues of the game being not worth the retail cost but a suck ass game is still a suck ass game.

      and on the other hand... it lets people try games they normally would have never bought at full price. for example: Halo Infinite. Was I gonna buy it at $60? Prolly not. But will I try it on Game Pass for $10? Sure... especially since if I hate it, I can go and play another game (or many games) at no extra cost.

    Too much subscriptions. As a older gamer I don't like the fact that you own nothing with these services. And the services are too many.. Recently I stopped spotifi. After years I start buying music physical again. And it feels better. Also having a game disk is better than just the download.

      I like physical media as well, but it's just for nostalgia. Modern games just download to internal storage anyways. Nothing runs of the disk natively anymore. You can have almost all the benefits of ownership from purchasing games online and downloading it a hard drive. Only problem with that is you can't sell your used games anymore.

    Evolve failed due to the aggressive over monetization of their ecosystem. Not only was it a $60 buy in (then there were the over priced special editions), but the micro transactions were ABSURD.

      @ApexDayman Maybe but I'm not sure tbh... seeing as TurtleRock is Releasing another 4 player coop game full priced with multiple editions that if I'm not mistaken have editions up to 100$ and so far have showed very little content. If I being honest too even if it was a 60$ only I find it VERY HARD to believe it's going to be successful, I can't even recall last time a 60$ mp focused game did well.

      @Adan Faria Fernandes Pretty sure it wasn't turtle rock that killed it. If I'm not mistaken, 2k Studious was the publisher and I'm fairly certain THEY were the ones pushing the heavy microtransactions on it. I loved evolve, and I'm pretty sure Turtle Rock did too, but based on what I've read/seen, I'm fairly certain what happened was the game wasn't ready (only released with like 2-3 monsters and 8 hunters I think? Might have been slightly more or less. No campaign, no real "structure" outside of the basic game mechanics, etc) and 2k pushed TRS to release as is, on top of asking for more microtransactions. That's why a lot of things were DLC. Then from there when people realized how empty the game was (on top of having a pretty high skill ceiling and floor, sort of like Dead by Daylight) it slowly began to die, they tried to revive it, but by then the damage had been done and it was only getting worse. I'd love for Evolve to come back, but not under 2k. I'd even be fine if TRS sold the rights, I love the game but hate how it went. It had so much potential.

      Yep it's a good game overall but TurtleRock killed it with their bad busnisses decisions. The game did a lot better on Evolve 2.0 (playerbase wise) but I think the direction they went with the game with less depth and the bad PR that it received at launch was too much for it, still managed to sink in a couple of hundred hours into the game I would gladly play it again if it be made popular again.

    I, along with many others, would like to see Evolve return. The problem is Game Pass wouldn't revive it for a few versions. Here's the way I see it. The game failed because 1) it was repetitive. Yes the idea was fun and the first few rounds were an adrenaline rush as you were hunting. However, it went no where with the idea. There were a few other game modes but it always boiled down to who died first. 2) After the release they got money hungry. Season passes and a butt load DLC and skin packs to buy. There wasn't anything to unlock in game. 3) It got horribly unbalanced. To the point that there was no reason to play as the Kraken or Phantom (the stealth monster) because the hunters got so buff in order to deal with the Behemoth monster they released. I think Evolve did what it needed to do. Showed that asymmetric multiplayer games can work. That maps can be big and vibrate and alive (seriously, having to be aware of the wildlife in a map made the hunts all the more fun. Made the world come alive). It just needs to have actual gameplay that is carefully looked after.

    I've used gamepass exclusively for these sorts of titles, the things I always had an interest in, but never enough to pull the trigger on a purchase. Brutal Legend is a great example. Game I was always curious about, but never played until I saw it there. Downloaded it as a "why not" and really enjoying it

      For me, I just wasn't aware. I see a relatively large list of countries where it's available but I suppose it's a good thing to point point out that it's not yet world wide.

    Got into Friday 13th due to Game Pass, wouldn't have tried it otherwise and great to have it available so easily. One of the best multilayer games in a while

    Evolve video in 2021? I click. One of the most enjoyable games I've played.

    Well, Lawbreakers reanimated woulda been fun. Definitely not Battleborn/Evolve. Turtle rock has Back 4 blood to fuck up.

    Evolve wouldn’t be resurrected by a game pass release. It might have a brief spike in player count but it won’t last. I used to be all over Evolve when it came out and as much as I love the idea of the game, the issue is it’s actually highly repetitive. The way characters are designed is that there’s 1 ideal way to play them and use their abilities properly. So if you’re playing the characters right every single match plays out the exact same way. It’s not like R6 where there’s unlimited combinations and possibilities, evolve is only designed to be played a certain number of ways and it gets boring quickly.

    Please let this be a thing. I would love to see games that failed cause of greed or otherwise. Cause I think if Evolve where to get in game pass the game would get more traction, then possibly even make a return. They'd have to put the version with all the DLC in gamepass. This would also be a good what if scenario, cause the game has been out for so long that people forgot about it, so giving away the game with all DLC free, cause the biggest complaint the game had was monetization.

    They need to finish porting the Xbox OG and 360 catalogs to PC game pass first.

      @Christian Johnson It was 3 monsters, but I sort of get where you're coming from with that point.

      @Christian Johnson Eh it mostly failed because of some over-inflated stuff. It worked well enough at launch, with a price as I recall of around 40 bucks. At some point there was like a 60$ bit for cosmetics that people complained about and spread a bunch of misinformation about it being actual gameplay stuff.

      Remember seeing it at the Pax East before launch. Massive display, ton of set up consoles, the whole damn thing. Friend and I were pumped. And then it landed with a dud. Whomp whomp.

      Better Prey on Steam for Ultra Lighting mod. I don't know about mods for Evil Within, but GamePass version has features not present on the Steam version

      @Perchipy Unpopular I would say that's too much. As far as I'm aware the game did well it's just wasn't a smash hit. It's a great game and a great imersive sim, I would highly recommend to anyone that liked System Shock, Deus Ex or the Dishonored series...

      I played prey on launch and played like 4 playthroughs after. That game was unpopular? I never knew.
