Found out about this game today (Wander)

This game called Wander is coming out June 6th for PC and PS4. I don’t know what to think of it or if I should get it. It kind of intrigues me though…

Basically, you wander around interacting with the world, riding or flying on creatures and exploring what it has to offer…What do you guys think?

Apparently Wander is “a collaborative, non-combat, non-competitive MMO game focused on narrative and exploration”. Sounds interesting enough, but there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of footage of the game that shows what it’s actually about.

It might just be a sandbox that you wander around in, hence the title. They could offer more information about the gameplay mechanics. I like the sound of a non-combat, non-competitive MMO and from the trailer it does look nice.

Perhaps wait until the game has been reviewed before making a purchase decision.

Oh damn…

From Gamersyde:

Wander will be released tomorrow on PC and PS4 and it’s really hard to believe considering that the PC version we were sent is not even worthy of the Alpha title. To find out why, read our opinion inside and watch our two gameplay videos.

Aside from the fact that this MMO seems pretty limited gameplay-wise, it will most probably be remembered for its numerous bugs and glitches. The main character refuses to run all of a sudden (which wouldn’t be a big deal if it weren’t for the fact that she walks more slowly than a dead snail). She can go through rocks or the ground, just like in the very first 3D games of yore. In her human form, she seems so small in first person view that Killzone’s heroes look like NBA players. Final example, sometimes she likes to swim in the air after launching the game because yesterday we had decided to go for a swim before quitting - which always causes the game to crash to make things worse. As it is now, this game cannot be taken seriously sadly, and we’re all the more disappointed as we really thought it would be nice to explore the environment. Unless the team behind the game does something very quickly or the PS4 version is radically different, we can only advise you to stay away from it.

I can’t say that’s a big surprise, given how little they had to show. A shame, since the premise sounded interesting enough.
