MW5 Pre-Order is Upon Us.
« on: 08 January 2019, 16:21:09 »
As a MWO Founder, I have salty mixed feelings.  Game itself looks promising. 

Thoughts?

Blake's Blood, Australian dollar crashing, ultimate is $175Aus ;/

But on contents, they really are angling to secure Founders and MWO players aren't they? Pretty light on if you are just a MW5 buyer with no MWO history.

For whatever reason all the MWO addons make me less tempted to preorder. I guess I'm just that salty about how MWO monetized; you'd think I would be over it after all these years.

I'll probably do the basic package since $50 isn't bad for a full game and frankly it would have to be REALLY bad for me to not buy it or delay buying it after release. Normally I'd spend a bit more to support the series but none of the addons for higher-levels look appealing and PGI sapped any goodwill they had with me years ago. And since I don't play MWO, the highest tier would get me two in-game skins and some digital content I will look through once and forget about (knowing myself).

Edit: I'll probably still wait several months before I preorder, if I do.

I'm a lapsed founder, so i'm considering the $80 level, but pretty sure even without the MWO addons, the prices wouldn't change much for pre-order, considering tiers of other games.  Yeah a non-MWO price would be nice,  but it's still tied to the game.

I'm with you on that. I don't play MWO, so I'd want a $40 option that doesn't include any MWO stuff since it has no value to me.

Same here. Unlike HBS, PGI have done nothing to earn my trust, and without that trust, I'm with House Biscuit - "We Do Not Pre-order."

edit: Also, has anyone seen anything to say if the game will be available on GoG? IIRC it's single-player only so I'd sooner have it DRM-free with a standalone installer than be stuck with Steam, or have to get some sort of PGI client

The preorder definitely gives you a steam key. Doesn't mean they won't release on GoG as well but you may have to buy through GoG if they do.

Thank you. I think I'll skip pre-ordering for now then

Meh...I'm a sucker...I'll dive in for the cost.

It's about standard fare for costs, and I still do MWO anyways....so....

Especially given we're talking a game that is literally asking to be modded...

The only thing I've seen showing us what color IE might use is... Underwhelming. And that's an odd green with red details. But that was the cover of IE3.

Anyone who still plays MWO would do well to get into this for the Marauder II if nothing else. I like the value as I still play MWO every so often but don't know about blowing $120 on the high end. Really really want to get in on the beta though. Love the vids they have put out on the game so far and if they did a demo of MP at MechCon it *should* be fairly stable.

As a Legendary level MWO founder, I'll wait till I can get it for $20 or less.

I'm not quite at this level, but I'm pretty close.

My plan for MW5 is to buy four copies so my family can all play together in coop, I stopped playing MWO years ago, and every time I try to go back I just can't be bothered. So the MWO stuff means nothing to me, but I like the concept of MW5 enough that I will buy it for retail price.

Never going through an early access program again though, I'm not going to wear out my enthusiasm for a game in beta. I'll wait until it's what it should be before I actually play. Even if I buy one pre-order (it's kind of a tradition), I won't play until release.

Much wisdom spoken here. I found myself agreeing with everything you just said.

I'm looking forward to the game; I hope it's great, and I'm looking forward to playing it when it comes out.  I don't play MWO, so the pre-order MWO parts aren't of any value for me.  And while HBS impressed me and inspired trust, I can't say the same for PGI.  So while I spent (more than the Merc level) on HBS' kickstarter, I'm not motivated to go in on this pre-order.  I'm still looking forward to the game (myomers crossed for a good release).

Edit: Watching this video just now, I get that "Community" Edition is really "MWO Community" Edition, thus all the MWO bonuses.  So I understand now why it's not appealing to me -- I'm not the intended audience for this pre-order.

If I had the cash, I would have already ordered the basic option. Hopefully soon. Co-op has tons of potential, and I can no longer curb my enthusiasm.

Good spread but wish they had at least 1 light or medium in that mix.
