The big AAA Companies behind every famous video game saga or title are considering the fact of making an online multiplayer video game, thanks to the well-received games that we’ve had this past couple of years.
Considering, for example, the success of Fortnite and Hearthstone, even if we take a look at the past, we’ll find games such as World of Warcraft and Team Fortress. The future lies on online multiplayer games and it is time for Sony to get into that field and make a new title, which will be heavily focused on a great multiplayer experience.
The Future Plans of Sony
Every console that Sony has made, has become a mass success, and this is not only for the graphics capabilities and features of their PlayStation home consoles but the great titles that come behind this console too.
With that in mind, Sony is finally considering a big project for the rumoured PlayStation 5. We are talking about an online experience as we’ve never seen before, that promises us to be one of the most memorable games by this legendary company.
Sony In Comparison with Other AAA Companies
The exclusives of Sony have become the strongest points of this company, take a look at their God of War saga or the well-known Uncharted saga. While these games are incredibly great, they lack a good multiplayer experience.
In another interesting point of view, other AAA Companies, such as Nintendo, have a great market in what it is their online multiplayer. One of the best examples is the legendary sagaSuper Smash Bros Ultimate, that possesses a great multiplayer feature that can extend the replay value of the game considerably.
Without mentioning other AAA Companies, we now understand the position of Sony when it comes to online features, as well how their games are lacking a great multiplayer mode, so they can finally shine on their own and add a little more of time to their replay value.
Being Available for Other Consoles
Cross-playing as most of the gamers call these games, are video games that share their online servers with other different consoles that don’t follow their same company. For example, Fortnite, being a game that allows cross-playing, a Nintendo user and an Xbox user can play on the same match even though they have different consoles.
So, the option of sharing servers with other console users makes the game feel really different, since now there are more players from other consoles. Having more players in the same server also allows more matches with different players, making the game more diverse when it comes to skills and player’s interaction.
However, there is a major point that has to be explained about the new multiplayer game by Sony, while this isn’t written on stone, they are considering the chances of not having a cross-playing mode.
Having the game being exclusively for Sony will make their new console more appealing for players, making an interesting feature for the next PlayStation. Sony is truly a professional gaming business and knows what their players want, that’s why we can expect this new multiplayer project to be a massive success.
