And the vibe on the title’s secret website isn’t any better. Go to the URL take their.money And you will be asked to enter a secret code, which is hidden in the game’s trailer. Then you can effectively sign up for a mailing list, but not before telling the developer which billionaire needs “spanking.” All this is unnecessarily fast, brutal, and clearly wants to gag us.
Of course, on top of all that, there’s the fact that, conceptually, the game looks about as dime a dozen as you can get – ridiculous given that it’s all about stealing from the very rich. In terms of art style it’s similar to the upcoming Hyenas, another game that’s been heavily criticized for its forgettable direction – and it’s not a million miles away from dozens of other upcoming shooter copycats, such as XDefiant et al.
There’s also a hint of irony to the fact that it’s a live service game, and something cringe-inducing about the very real reality it will likely lean heavily into microtransactions – a great way to stick it to billionaires. yes Look, we expect the game to be great, and obviously we’re not going to draw any solid conclusions from the teaser trailer. But as far as first impressions go, this game couldn’t have been more wrong.
