Complex Games, the builders of the brand new Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, have issued an announcement to pissed off gamers after operating a marketing campaign the place sure in-game gadgets have been solely accessible to those that sat by some Twitch streams.
Via PC Gamer, whereas Complex in all probability thought they have been operating a reasonably commonplace (by 2022 requirements anyway) launch window promotional factor, the character of the gadgets and the fanbase and platform in query weren’t having it. Here’s an instance of a detrimental evaluate left on the sport’s Steam web page because of this, considered one of many who presumably prompted the assertion:
The sport would have gotten a thumbs up however for one factor. The builders for some ridiculous motive determined to place 11 ingame gadgets(not skins or cosmetics however precise weapons and armor) behind twitch drops on the day of launch. In order to get this stuff you not solely should create and hyperlink a Frontier account and a Twitch account however it’s a must to watch hours and hours of inane twitch streamers prattling on as a substitute of truly enjoying the sport you paid for. They are also timed so should you miss them you miss them ceaselessly.
If there was one other option to earn these ingame it will not be an enormous deal however I’m not gonna watch ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Angry Joe for two hours simply to get a weapon.
The Angry Joe stream was really solely 45 minutes, however their level stays. The gadgets weren’t something fancy or game-breaking. Most of them have been simply very slight variations on early-game weapons and armour that you simply’ll transfer previous in a couple of hours anyway. But it’s the spirit of the transfer—and it’s mandates on participant’s time in the event that they need to check out the whole lot the sport has to supply—that has upset folks as a lot as its sensible penalties.
As a end result, Complex have mentioned that each merchandise provided in the course of the streams will now be given away to free to all gamers later this month.
