Doesn't really bother me we had Outriders that was a solid SP game having an internet connection requirement then we have the like of Forza Horizon with tons of online features that is a blast to play solo and last time I actually gamed offline was when the PS2 was in it's prime.
I do think it will hurt the perception of the game and review scores because of it though so it's an odd choice on their part.
First it was co-op story progress being exclusively tied to the host and now this. Hopefully there’s no more bad news prior to the launch lol
For real? That is such archaic co-op design. Might need to go lower my prediction in the league a bit, this double whammy of bad news has me doubting it's ability to score 80+. I also just saw that the PC system requirements seem unreasonably high, the minimum GPU requirement is a roughly 6 tflop GPU, 2 tflops more than Series S, and it has to be the 8 GB of VRAM version of that card, not the 4GB variant, and the minimum is also 16 GB of system RAM, which makes me think the PC port won't be very well optimized at all, which will definitely hurt it's score with PC focused critics.
Edit: The minimum system requirement is actually above Forspoken, which was attacked by PC fans for being a poorly optimized port by Square Enix. Just checked PC Part Picker and the cheapest system I could build to meet the minimum Redfall spec was about $550.
