You are probably stabled on a very weird topic named “Battleborn : community Edition”
And now you are wondering , what is this topic about !?
I’ll explain by stating this before I present my idea
Well , we may all know that our lovable BB is probably gonna get treated like “Evolve”.
Winter Update ?, no teaser for new champions after the release of Beatrix ?
No DLC for PvE content after the other 3 OP missions come out ?
Look , I hope that I’m wrong , but we can assume that after that, we’re pretty much gonna get the following message with "The development of further Battleborn content has been shutdown to this day until who knows "
It will be disappointing when OR if that day comes.
That is why I would like to have us , the community , the option(or the authorization) to develop the game (or a sequel).
An example of this was with “Super Smash Bros” , a fighting game that went on to become a competitive fighting game at EVO tournaments.
Due to some little issue’s with it , competitive players of the game came up with the idea of modding the game for competitive level play.
As a result , this led to the half finished project named “Project M” , which was at development until it was forced to be shutdown by the company who made the OG game.
That is why (again lets hope that I’m wrong), if the future of BB’s content will cease to exist , I would like to be among the many few of us, who willingly like continue the support for a great game that was never recognized by cough cough LOW MARKETING DECISIONS COUGH COUGH 2K !
The only thing We need is the green light by gearbox or …two-kai to have the option to support this game.
While I love the idea and the motivation, melee was a bonanza. Most game cube sales were attributed to it. Battleborn is very small and we’d need access to servers and the like that project m didn’t need. It’s ill fated
I would rather lore be handled by devs than fans to be honest, and really how good is having new champions when they are all fanmade, as mods have already existing data to modify, not making their own (well most of them), they would likely be all over the place, and not fit into the lore
“Deep in the dark void of space, one group of technologically advanced survivors has learned to create artificial stars to push the varelsi back. In other news, the battleborn have found a strange vault with mysterious properties…”
Ahh, one can only dream about the endless directions this game can take…
There were no ‘issues’ with the game per se that led to PM, but a development team decided to take much maligned Brawl, the third title in the series, and mod it to have the same game mechanics as its popular predecessor Melee.
There was a strong Brawl community, but Melee fans were a passionate bunch, saw their game in decline and decided to make a mod that could keep the spirit of it alive.
As it turned out Melee eventually made a huge resurgence, while the PM devs decided to stop patching the game. They had planned future patches for it, but I wouldn’t say it was ‘half-finished’. It was a complete product they just stopped patching, presumably due to a cease and desist.
